Nitto Crosstek

I bought a set from NTB today, 255/70/18's. I replaced the factory installed duelers which really needed replacing.

i could not find any consumer reviews of these tires, but Nitto seems to have a good reputation, so i took a chance. they are supposedly good in the rain, which we get a lot of in Houston.

and it doesn't hurt that they just look good on my truck.

the tires still look good. i like how my truck rides, but what do i know. i don't do anything fancy when i drive. just city driving.

one reason i bought these tires was Nitto's claim that they are good good on wet roads.
in houston, that's usually important. but how was i to know that i bought these tires at the beginning of a drought. no rain in houston from the end of january until this week! and that rain was hardly enough to test the tires.

still i'm pretty happy with the tires. they still have rubber hairs all over them. it will take quite a while before i can report on how they wear.

Nice tires, I will recommend them to a friend, all he does is city driving as well- and his duellers are shot!! Thanks for posting your feelings and findings.

my duelers were at about 35k when i replaced them. the tread was pretty thin. i figure they would have been completely bald at 40k, which i think is the mileage rating for these tires.

Cool looking tires! They have a sweet sidewall and a pretty tame tread pattern... Looks like best of both worlds.

There's a 4runner around here that wears 'em and I gander at em every time I run/bike/drive by.

My Duellers were gone at 32, i put on a set of Nitto Crosstek yestereday. Got them from Big O. Not a bad price but as good as the guy who got his for $750.
Mine were the P255/70R18 for $950 OTD. They were smoth and quite on the ride home. I am not sure about the look but i am mostly concerned about the performance and longevity. We tow a 28 foot camping trailer in the summer.

I think the sidewall design is pretty decent, plus a tame tread if your driving more street, nice.

Now that you've had them awhile please post your thoughts.

I just bought a set of these about a month ago. The tire shop "Road Forced" balanced the tires. For a big tire, it sure does ride smooth, low road noise, and they look good.

Road Force is a balancing machine built by Hunter. Road force Hunters have an opposing wheel that simulates the tires as if it was on the ground.

Regular balancing machines don't have a second wheel, it just spins freely in the air.

Here is a link to to Hunter's website: Hunter GSP9700 Wheel vibration Control System solves wheel vibration and tire pull problems that balancers and aligners can't fix

I have the Nitto Trail Grapplers. I am happy with the look and ride. Dissappointed in the life. Have them on for almost 25K miles and they are pretty worn down. Almost look like racing slicks. I never got the chance to take them off road and now don't want to for fear of getting stuck. Looking for a new tire that is made for the asphalt and the occasional off road. I do not think an MT tire was what I needed. Wonder if these will fare better.
