Nitto Ridge Grappler | A Fresh Look on Hybrid Light Truck Tires



Nitto's New Hybrid Light Truck Tire

The Nitto Ridge Grappler combines the aggressive off-road performance of a mud-terrain tire with the on-road comfort of an all-terrain tire. Using its aggressive tread design, tread block stabilizers, and variable pitch tread pattern, the Ridge Grappler delivers excellent traction in mud, sand, and loose gravel and a surprisingly responsive, comfortable highway ride. High load carrying capacities from P-metric up to F-rated options. Whether you drive a daily work truck or an off-road adventure vehicle, the Nitto Ridge Grappler is a great choice.

-KEY FEATURES-


  • Variable Pitch Tread Pattern: Advanced sound equipment was used to create a pattern that provides a quiet and smooth highway ride.

  • Alternating Shoulder Groovers: Shoulder grooves are arranged in alternating widths and lengths to clear mud and maintain traction. Lateral Z grooves are set in a zig-zag pattern to provide biting edges for traction.

  • Dual Sidewall: Like all Grapplers, the Ridge Grappler features two bold sidewall designs. One side features a more traditional pattern while the other side features a new, aggressive block design.

  • Reinforced Block Foundation: Adds rigidity to tread blocks to reduce flex.

  • Stone Ejectors: Protects the bottom of groove from stone drilling.

  • Staggered Should Lugs: Provides traction in off-road environments.

  • Edges: The alternating tapered edges and step block edges both provide additional biting edges for more traction.

Looks like the Nitto cousin of the Toyo R/T, but with a more attractive sidewall than the R/T. IMHO.

-UPDATE-

We just received a shipment of 285/70R-17 LR-C Ridge Grappler tires today (10 tires total); they will be live on our website tomorrow. You can place order for them by phone now at 1.888.459.4080; retail pricing is $246.45 each with FREE delivery.

On a side note, members have been inquiring to the weight difference between the 285/70R-17 LR-E VS LR-C. According to our specs provide from Nitto, the LR-C weighs 54.45 lbs, which happens to be the case for the LR-E as well. I believe the 54.45 lbs is correct for the LR-C but not the LR-E. Reason being... a member from another forum weighed one of his LR-E tires which weighed 58 lbs.

safe to say this tire falls in between trail grappler and the terra grappler?

Is it possible to get the weight of each size they make instead of asking for specific size. I emailed nitto about the weight of the 285/75-17, and it took them 3 weeks to respond. I was told the weight was 65 lbs
Thank you

It is possible. We'll try to get something up in the next week or so.

In the meantime, if there is a particular size you need the weight on, shoot us a PM and we'll be happy to look. We have all weights on file.
