    I am looking for an aggressive looking tire with the least amount of road noise. I was leaning toward the Cooper STT Pros or the Nitto Ridge Grapplers 295/70/18s. I want to put them on my 2014 SR5. Any opinions would be great

    @Sean266 has the STT Pros. I'm not sure how those two sound, never had them. But haven't heard any complaints either!!

    I recently bought Ridge Grapplers, but haven't mounted them yet. @Relentless has 35's mounted on his CM and says they're pretty quiet for such an aggressive tread.

    The Nitto Terra Grapplers are the favorite of our owner and upper management for aggressive look and low road noise.

    A lot of people that own the STT Pro's say they're the quietest MT they've ever had.

    Quietest M/T's I've ever owned are the STTPro's!

    2 drastically different tires. One is a true MT and the other is barely an AT in my book. I just put ST Maxxs on my Tacoma and while I have not turned the radio off and rolled the windows down I do not hear them with the radio at a reasonable volume level.

    STT Pro is definitely quiet for an MT, but the Ridge grappler is next to silent in comparison. I own both tires, Ridge grapplers on my DD Tundra, STT Pro on my Long travel dual locked 4runner that sees mostly exploration/offroad use.

    I liked the BFG A/T's, they were quiet until they wore down, then got a little more road noise.

    Eric, the STT Pro's come with white lettering on one side, right? So if I want all black I can just put the lettering on the inside?

    We are personally fans of the Toyo line, especially the Toyo R/Ts. You still get the benefit of the 3 ply sidewall that you get with the Toyo M/T, but you get a more all terrain designed tread pattern to compensate with mileage and road noise. Not to mention you are still getting your E load rating. Plus the whole Toyo line of Open Country are made right here in the USA! All made on a state of art 100% machine manufactured assembly line to cut out any human error. If anybody has had the chance to see it, its pretty amazing.

    I'm now a true Toyo believer. Couldn't be happier with mine.

    Ive mounted a few sets of TOYOs. They look like solid tires. I've considered them.

    To my knowledge, yes! I know mine did, though I went black letters out

    35" Toyo A/T2s here. Was looking at the R/Ts but didn't see a huge difference and the A/T2 has a 60K warranty to the 40K warranty of the R/T and M/T. And I don't find the A/T2s to be very loud.

    Really the only main difference between the two is that the R/T is a 3 ply sidewall and the AT II are 2 ply. So the AT gives an ever so slightly cushier ride. The R/T tread has a slightly bigger tread gap between the tread blocks which will help with off road traction.

    Yeah and that's why I went with the A/T. The warranty is what was a plus for me.
