I own a 2019 CCLB z71. Put on a set of Nitto Ridge Grapplers about two weeks ago. 265 65 r 17. I live in South Florida.

1) Appearance- love the look of these tires. Installed aggressive sidewall out.

2) Wet traction. - no noticeable difference between OEM tire.

3) Towing - the Nitto is load rated XL as compared to the SL rated OEM tire. - I’m able to run at a higher pressure- makes for less compression of tire and better ride under load. I run around 36 psi unloaded and air up to 42 psi with load.

4) highway noise- Nitto has noticeable more road noise. I was not surprised and expected such when switching to a more aggressive tread pattern. Sounds like a truck.

5) Did some mild off-roading today. Truck felt real nice over the small washboard and ruts.

I will do some more challenging off-roading ( mud and sugar sand) in the future and will make an update then.

So far- happy with the Nitto’s

I had these Nitto Ridge Grapplers on my 2006 F-250. They were 33's. I loved them, and the look. Didn't have any road noise. I would buy them again if i get the chance. I didn't this last time cause it was a late night emergency when I had to get my new tires.

Thanks for the review! Please keep it updated as they wear and you get more off-road time.

Had these on a work truck Sierra 1500 found them decent road noise and lasted well, zero confidence in the snow with them tho. Went to the Toyo ct after these.

Finally got to put these tires in some mud. I went through some terrain that I doubt the OEM tires could have handled. The aggressive tread made a significant difference! Still Very happy with these tires after 4000 miles!

Tire update- sugar sand.

Went out today to scout and check some game cams. Decided to attempt to go further to the area by truck instead of hiking/biking in.

I had an oh s**t moment when I got into some deep sugar sand. However, the truck took it like a champ. I am surprised by the off road capability. I also pulled out a car that took a wrong turn.
There is no way my stock z71 could have made it today. The Nittos with the lift made a big difference.
Really happy with Truck!

what are you scouting for? Deer? Turkey/ Alligator?
Scouting for Deer/Hog mainly. Sometimes I find some turkey sign.

Mud Update!
Did some more off road exploring this weekend. This time I had company, @Tek7873 .so I really tested the tires in the mud. Got stuck in 2 wd a couple times. But was able to keep going in 4wd. The tires have been up to the task for my terrain in Florida. Sand and Mud.

Savage! I love it. :love: and yeah, I find 2wd just doesn't cut it in slippery conditions even with good tires.
