Nitto Trail Grappler M/T Pics

Closeup pics of 295 70R 18 Nitto Trail Grappler with a 2.5" front lift only. These are awesome, taller and narrower than the 33 12.5 18 Toyo MT's. Just back from a trip and actually got a 2 mpg better than the toyo's. I'm running 50psi, no shimmy, no pull, quiet, and don't feel them. Here are a few pictures I took today.

Those are nice tires! Any idea what the mileage rating on them is?
E rated?

They don't put mileage ratings (warranties) on M/T tires, due to the nature of their use, which can be abusive.

Yup you're right.
I didn't catch that they were M/Ts. I was wondering to myself why they were such aggressive sidewalls on an A/T.

They are quiet. I have been looking for a narrower tire than 12.5 for a long time that was taller than a 33 and shorter than 35, these are them. And they are cheaper than other tires of this size

^^^Yeah, I was surprised at how quiet they actually are. Had mine installed today. They aren't much louder than the GY Duratracs I took off.

Why did you take the Duratracs off? Just curious. The Duratracs and the Trail Grapplers are the two tires I am considering and road noise is a big issue with the wife. More importantly is the felt vibration in the passenger compartment caused by the tread. The vibration makes her car sick.
