    Okay, so I need a little help. I just ordered a 19 Pro which should be in by the end of the month and I am gonna have the dealership put on a set of 295/70/18s before I drive off the lot and need to decide on the STT Pro's or the Ridge Grapplers. They have a special until the end of the month to buy 3 get one for a buck. I was all set on the STT's but they can't get those, so he quoted me on the Grapplers. Should I get the Grapplers or get the STT's somewhere else?

    Thanks for the help/suggestions

    Seems like the ST Maxx would be the equivalent to the Ridge Grapplers. The Pros would be equivalent to the Trail Grapplers.

    So of the two you mentioned, I’d go Ridge Grappler unless you are a dedicated off-roader.

    Depends, is your Pro gonna be primarily an off-road rig or will it be your DD as well? After all, the Ridge Grappler is an aggressive AT, and the STT Pros are an MT. I have the former, and have absolutely nothing to complain about as far as on road manners and they’re pretty quiet. Though I can testify that for an MT, the Coopers are pretty quiet and are also a very popular tire. As far as other opinions, @Grey Wolf @T-Rex266 and @joonbug have STT Pros, @Watt maker and @csuviper have RG’s.

    I recommend the Ridge Grapplers for your daily driver. I don't off-road enough or in mud enough in my Tundra to warrant MT's. I do in my 2008 4Runner but I just run the ST Maxx and they've been pretty good in the deep stuff.

    I narrowed down to the same two choices. I went with Ridge Grapplers because the truck is a daily driver and because I decided to drop down to 285/70, which was not available on the STT.

    Just took our first extended trip over the weekend and I have to say the Nittos were smooth and quiet; no complaints from me or the wife. No opportunities for offroad driving yet, but I'm sure they'll be more than enough for the limited offroading I'll do.

    I would go ridge grapplers on that. OP, just a thought, but take a look at the 285/70/18 in the ridge grappler as well. It's close to the same height as the 295's, but they are about 10 lbs lighter per tire according to Nitto's website. Not saying these truck can't handle the 295's by any means because they certainly can, but the 285's should save you a little mpg and be slightly better on power, etc. Again, just a thought.

    I love my pros.. but as a daily driver, I only travel about 7 to 10 miles to work. They are loud.. but a damn good tire. So if noise is a deal breaker, you may want to go another route.

    Buy 3 and get 1 for a buck? Toyota special or a local dealer deal? I sure like the sound of that discount. Lol I am going after some Ridge Grapplers soon

    I decided on the Ridge Grapplers. Ordered through my Toyota dealership. Seems like most of the dealers around here are doing this deal until the end of the month. I'm getting them put on the truck when the truck arrives in a week or two so that when I see it for the first time, it should look the way the factory should have released Pro's, with a much beefier looking tire.

    Thanks for all the help deciding which route to take.

    I had the Cooper STT Pro's on my Tacoma before i sold it and got my Tundra. They were killer tires, but they kicked up a fuss on the highway.
    My trucks are not my daily drivers, but when i got my Tundra i went with 35" Duratrac's. i had them prior to the Coopers and they were great also and didn't make much noise at all on the highway.
