1. Nitto Ridge Grappler

We know everyone's heard and probably run the Nitto Ridge Grappler, which is why it's first on our list. This tire has been hot on the market for good reason. 

 

RIDGE GRAPPLER REVIEW

 

Jeep

 

The Ridge Grappler gives you the best of both worlds with its hybrid design. This means it's suitable for both on and off-road adventures giving you the freedom to go wherever you want, whenever you want.

The on-road experience of the Ridge Grappler is smooth and stable so you can head to work comfortably during the week and go hard on the weekends on the off-road trails.

 

2010 TOYOTA TUNDRA

 

 The Ridge Grappler overall handles, brakes, and corners really well in both wet and dry conditions and it gets great snow traction as well.

This tire has an E-load rating meaning that per tire you get about 3,200 pounds of load capacity with a T-speed rating, meaning that it is approved for speeds up to 118 mph. This tire does start a little higher when it comes to price, but the performance is 100% worth the price. Ask anyone who's run the Ridge Grappler and they'll give you the same answer.

2. Kenda Klever R/T

Next up we have the Kenda Klever R/T which has also been a very popular off-road choice by enthusiasts for years now. This is another hybrid tire with all-terrain and mud-terrain compounds giving you the best of both worlds.

The Kenda Klever R/T has large tread voids and because of that, it will have a little more road noise compared to a full-on mud tire for example. But, it will also have more off-roading capability because of those large tread voids. 

The Klever R/T has become popular from its off-road performance, but also because it won't drain your bank account. It's one of the more affordable tires that provides awesome grip and traction on the trails.

The noticeable difference with the Kanati Trail Hog is the extra sipping across the tire which helps the tire excel in snow and ice. A common theme with this tire is leaving them a lower PSI to increase road contact.

Besides this, the Kantai Trail Hog drivers super smooth is relatively quiet, and performs great off-road which is why it's been such a popular choice for avid off-road enthusiasts and their rigs. 

 

2011 JEEP WRANGLER

 

This one again is also an E-load rating that comes in many different sizes starting at $843 for a set. The Trail Hog has a Q-speed index, meaning that it is approved for up to 99 mph.
