Dual Sidewall Designs
Each Grappler has two sidewall designs so you can choose how your tyres look. On the Nitto Trail Grappler® M/T, one side has stylised lettering with V-shaped buttresses and the other has traditional lettering with flat buttresses. Nitto’s ability to produce exceptionally uniform off-road tyres with this feature is an engineering feat as even small weight imbalances can cause unwanted vibrations.
Tread Block Arrangement
A common complaint with mud-terrain tyres is their noise level, something that Nitto are determined to change. Using 3D computer simulation, Nitto’s engineers systematically adjusted the size, shape and position of the tread blocks to create an aggressive, yet quiet off-road tyre with up to 36% less tyre noise!* *Compared to Nitto Mud Grappler
A 3-ply sidewall with a high turn-up construction acts as an extra layer of reinforcement to increase puncture resistance.
Nitto’s proprietary automated manufacturing system produces extraordinarily uniform tyres, providing a smooth ride on paved roads.
Reinforced Shoulder Grooves
Reinforced shoulder grooves give the Nitto Trail Grappler® M/T extreme off-road performance by facilitating self-cleaning and stone ejection without compromising tread block stiffness.
Sipes are thin slits in a tread block that cut through water on the road surface to gain traction. The Nitto Trail Grappler® M/T has deep centre sipes to decrease hydroplaning and increase traction in wet conditions.
A balanced void ratio efficiently removes mud and dirt from the tread to provide continuous off-road traction.
