    well nittos are a pretty good tire, but i think it is too new to get a real rating on it yet

    They just did a review in one of the 4x4 mags on those tires. They had no complaints about them and kinda talked highly of them. Sounded like a real good tire. I'm personally running the terra grapplers and my next set will be from the nitto family, not sure which ones. Check the bookstore for the mag, they were on the cover on a military chevy truck. Sorry I can't remeber for the life of me what mag it was, but it was this months issue.

    Saw a set in action last weekend on a Jeep, climbing rocks with 12psi they looked pretty unstoppable, in sand and loose soil they got great traction too, so much so that it buried the Jeep to the axle. The compound being used is supposed to promote longer tire life on pavement which will be a great benefit, most Nitto's wear fast when used on the street do to their agressive tread patern and sticky qualities.
