    Hello, I'm new on this forum, but have been around Tundra Talk for quite a while. My current tires still have some tread left, but they are wearing down, as now any time on wet pavement they will spin when taking off. I'm looking at replacing with a 275/70/18 once again. I had my heart set on the Ridge Grapplers for a while, but now that I'm looking at prices, it makes the decision a little bit tougher. Thoughts on these?

    Falken AT3W - $155 each right now on DTD

    Cooper MTP - $219 each - has a $70 rebate

    Ridge Grappler - $248 each

    My first set of tires for my Tundra were
    Falkens. My current set are KO2’s. When these wear down, I’m going back to Falkens.

    I ran the Falkens on the Jeep Wrangler I traded for my Tundra (and the jeep before that). price is right, aggressive look, good on raod and offroad, wear nicely, and low road noise.

    When the stock tires on the Tundra wear out I will be switching to the Falkens

    Not sure on any of these being I haven't ran any of them. I really like Toyo tires I have 30,000 miles on a set of Open Country MT and still have about 60% thread left.

    I really like the MTP's and Ridge Grapplers, the price on the Falkens though is what keeps catching my attention. I don't need a mud tire, but I really like the looks of the MTP, and after the rebate I could essentially get them for about $920 out the door installed. Ridge Grapplers would run me around $1,100.

    I'm somewhat biased towards Cooper tires. I've got a set of ST Maxx's and a set of STT Pro M/T's. My tire place sells a lot of the MTPs. Great tread design and Cooper quality.

    I have run Mastercrafts for years and feel that they are a good quality tire for the money. They are made by Cooper as well, which I like. My current AXT's are still at about 7/32 and they have almost 45k miles on them. Rated for 50k.

    Yeah, the Mastercrafts are very reasonably priced for very decent tires.

    Soooo discount tire direct is having their presidents day sale now, and really makes this a tough choice!! $75 rebates on "better" tires and $60 rebate for using DT credit card. Whatever I pick, basically i'll get $135 back.

    MTP - $219 - $741 after rebates
    Ridge Grappler - $248 - $857 after rebates
    Exo Grappler - $234 - $801 after rebates
    Trail Grapplers - $267 - $933 after rebates

    I have Trail Grappler and am very impressed by the quality of these tires. If I drive a lot (which I don't), I would probably go with Ridge Grappler.
