    Default Baja ATZ Radial or NITTO Terra grapplers?

    I am looking to get 35x12.5x20r for my 08 Silverado 7" lift. What would you recommend that would give me decent off road traction, comfort, and slight traveling comfort.

    FWIW, Once i get it next week I am going to be lifting my 2014 2500HD Duramax 7.5" and going with the Nitto Trail Grapplers in 18x35's.
    Have read nothing but good about Nitto tires.

    I've got the ATZ's on my Suburban and they look/perform pretty darn good. They are wearing great as well, I've got 35,000+ miles on them and they still look great.

    I don't think you could go wrong with either, but if it was my money I would go Nitto.

    Can't speak for the other brand, but I have been running the terra grapplers.

    The nitto's perform very well offroad and towing. They also run really well on the highway too. Best of both worlds.

    Give u the rundown and my reviews. All tires used on landscaping trucks 1500, 2500, 3500 silverados, with plows hauling loaded 20' trailers .... (1500)Cooper St 285's "load E"- great tire for everyday beatings.. Snow traction (can be studded)good until it gets icey, got 65k miles out of them.. great in rain no hydro plane. only got buried in the deep snow when the frame got up on a thick snow bank. Drove them on stone roads and don't pic up much rock. sand ok but dig unless u air down. City street drone got loud after 40000 miles but sounded good. Overall I would buy them in heart beat any day. Moab, telluride, and Toledo and several cross country trips with them.. Heavy but not to heavy..Lost 1-2mpgs overall. (2500) Goodyear Duratracs 285's "load E" 2nd set get about 45k out of them... City street drone gets loud at 30-50mph. wet weather watch out for the tar on the streets it will slide and u won't stop. Snow traction great, rips the mud up just as well, never been stuck hit the hammer and the dig. sand they dig quick so air down. side lugs help dig as well. pulled out a couple huge screws and no punctures strong sidewalls. very heavy tire , about 3-4mpgs lost. (1500) Pro comp xtm "load e" 285's used primarily out in Colorado./ moab.. Great snow tire, suck when it gets icey. No hydroplane, great over washboard just hit the pedal and go. rock crawling they r super sticky when aired down, got buried plenty of times 600" snow year. Road noise not to loud 30-50mphs, heavy tire lost 3-4mpgs 40k on them . (3500) "load e" 255's Michelin at2 throw every little rock or pebble imaginable at your rig. great handling in rain and sand, not for gravel roads at all. not the best in any type of mud they get slick. we will wait to see how the snow is. no noise very smooth ride. great gas mpgs no complaints but definitely not like the other tires above... WILL NOT BUY AGAIN.. came with the new truck

    What kind of terrain/driving? I have a set of Truxxus M/T's on my truck and love them. I just got back from a week on the beach with them. Did not air down and had zero issues. Spent most of the time in 2WD even.

    bfg at... Lot people have them cause u can get em at box stores.. wait till u blow your sidewalls or loose your tread.. had several friends use them and had more hate and repair or warranty.. one set delaminated and almost killed my buddie.. wrecked his truck.. most say sidewalls are to sloppy.. but they do get semi good traction until they gum up with mud..

    - - - Updated - - -

    Had a friend get a pair of terra's first set in 20" back in the day (2003).. tread is not deep and they wear out super quick traction is just ok.. slick when wet and 20k on them...
