    I have yet to see anyone else running General's "new" Grabber X3 tires. I've had mine for just over 2 months now.

    Size: LT35x12.5R18
    Cost: ~1200.00 installed through Discount Tire (not including road hazard certs)

    Pro's: Excellent traction on dirt, rock, sand, and dry/wet road. After 3000 miles, and several off-road trips, I have very little wear showing - most of it from a burnout I did on a dirt road lol. Finally, my MPG only went from 15.8 to 15.3. Road noise is minimal; they hum but I can still easily hear other MT's over mine. The hum is very easy to tune out or drown out with just a bit of noise from the radio.

    Con's: They are heavy.. With my wheels, they're 107lbs per corner, which my stock shocks struggle to control. For the first few hundred miles they liked to wander all over asphalt, but that has since subsided. Lastly, they took several tries to balance properly, due to their weight.

    I'll try to remember to update this as they wear more. Overall, I'm very happy with these tires thus far. I was a bit worried initially because of General's issues with several of their tire lines frequently being out of round.

    They are great aggressive tires. Only complaint is they are heavier than duratracs and I can feel the difference

    I’ve heard the K02s are ridiculous heavy compared to stock tires as well. 10+ pounds. Look at Hankook dynapro ATMs. Great reviews. I will be replacing my 1 year old stock Michelin’s with those soon. Had 6 flats in a year with Michelin’s. Only one nail, the rest were rock cuts. Very disappointed in the Michelin’s. Just my $.02.

    Correction on weight issue. I was reading chart wrong. The K02s are heavier but only 3-5 pounds. Sorry about that.

    I like them so far. had them about 2 days and they do have some hhuuuummm to them. but they are an MT and it is expected. stock suspension, stock rims no rub, trimming or mods.

    Is there a reason nobody mentions the Yokohama Geolandar A/T GO15? I am looking for a 315/70R17 to run on the Icon Six Speed wheel. The Geo weighs only 61 pounds and is 34.4 inches x 12.4 wide. It also has a 50,000 tread warranty. Aside from that, a ton of guys in South Africa, Kenya, Uganda and Australia swear by them on their Hiluxes and Land Rovers. Just curious why they don't seem to be popular for the Tundra?

    I think the Geo and the Goodyear Duratrac are my final two in that size.
    Then there is the Toyo Open Country AT II in 305/70R17 that equates to 33.9x 12.2 wide and weighs 64lbs. It has a 50,000 tread warranty as well.

    I am a first time Tundra owner so if there is something I'm missing about these options please let me know! Thanks.

    I'm wondering why we don't start a poll chart kind of setup? I've seen these before and they clearly point out the most popular item of interest.
    I don't have a clue how to do it. Any ideas?

    Would really like to know how the Nitto Terra grappler G2’s or Hankook dynapros or Michelin LTX perform in the rain. I live in FL and drive 90% on the highway.
    285/65/18’s are what I want to go with. Thanks for any help!

    My 18 Tundra came with the 20 inch TSS rims and Goodyear AT w/ Kevlar tires. These tires seem to transmit a lot more vibration through the steering wheel than the KO2s on my previous 16. And even though the tread is not that aggressive, they seem louder. Anyone else have these tires?

    Why is does it seem to be an almost Cult Following for BF Goodrich KO2's??? Dealership installed a set of 285/55/20 D Rated on Thursday, Friday AM, Dealership was removing the set. Rough, traction in the dry was worse than the brand new stock Bridgestones, not to mention in the short 10 mile ride, MPG's dropped 1.5-2mpg

    Since you've had them for a bit how do you like the Ridge's now? IYO, are they worth the extra $ over the Duratracs? Them two along with Cooper SST Pro is what I'm looking at when I finally put a 3/1 kit on in the very near future.

    They have been great so far. Maybe 6k on them now. Haven’t seen much weather, mud, rock or dirt yet. Wear is good and even so far.

    Been on Michelins 285/75/R16 LTX M/S AT (Yes they rub the frame slightly) for 12 years now. The first set from 2007 were the best as the formulation was not what the new ‘eco friendly’ version comes in now.

    The 2007 tires (smelled new for 4 years - you know that smell) had close to 70k on them before having to replace only because of (slight) dry rot around the sidewall. The tread was only half worn! Better safe than sorry when towing so replaced with a newer set.

    The new 2015 Michelins AT ‘eco formula’ have not performed as well. They have worn faster and have not been as grippy. Overall I’m still pleased with the Michelins AT as they are used for pavement towing and sand exclusively. Soft cushy riding and pretty quiet in the cab. Handles nicely all around weather conditions.

    How quiet are they? I've heard the the Duratracs are quiet and the Cooper's have a hum. What does the master recommended for a DD with occasionally green and blue trails?

    I've been very happy with my Ridge Grapplers so far. I have right at 5k miles on them. They do have a little noise but to be honest, it's been so long since my truck was stock or didn't have noise until I don't even notice it. What noise there is does not bother me one bit.

    I've been running the Nitto Exo Grapplers AWT on my truck for ~26k miles. These are studable and are snow flake rated. I have had 4 Tundras now and I have used nearly every Nitto tire on a Tundra (Nitto Mud Grappler, Nitto Trail Grappler, and Nitto Terra Grappler). So far I am very impressed with these tires. They handle great in the water compared to my previous tires, and they are the best tire I have had in the snow. With my mud and trail grapplers, I'd have to go into 4x4 hi in snow. With the exo grapplers I am able to tackle majority of it in 2wd with autolsd turned on. They are surprisingly good off road, they have never had any problems on my farm with mud and I have yet to get stuck with these tires.

    These tires come brand new with 18.4 tread depth, at my last service they said my tires have 12/13 remaining after 26k miles. I should easily get 50k+ out of these tires.

    I would buy these again simply for the snow performance, but I kinda want to try to ridge grapplers since they get such great reviews.

    While my fuelly isn't complete, you can see I get decent fuel economy with these Exo Grapplers, much better comapred to the trail and mud grapplers i had prior. I have these in LT275/65R20 (34.33"x10.98" per Nitto)

    I haven't ran across anyone with the dura grapplers (may I am just blind) here in the forums and was curious if anyone had an expierence with them. Reviews look stellar and I like the look. Though I get two different pictures when shopping online.. lol So that tossed up some redflags. Maybe it is just 6am and I haven't finished my coffee yet lol But the picture walmart shows vs. Discounttiredirect.com is way off. Maybe a different year model? Or one has the wrong pic?Screenshot_20180928-060446_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20180928-060529_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20180928-060430_Samsung Internet.jpg

    I have around 10k miles on my Hankook Dynapro AT-M's and I'm pretty happy with them. I haven't found any deep snow but I did have them on some snow/ice and they performed well. They seem to be holding up well and they aren't terribly loud.

    I've had experience with the falken wildpeak at3s my gf had them on her 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500 and in the wisconsin winter's she didn't have any issues with the snow or mudd they were aggressive enough for her and she loved them

    How did she find gas mileage? Can anyone shine some light on the Wildpeaks on their 07-13 Tundra with winter driving and gas consumption?

    Also anyone have any experience with the Toyo Open Country C/T's?

    Long story short I'm running 275/70R18 Duratracs right now and they are decent but not great. They are reminding me of K02's... ie. Started off amazing but after a year the compound has hardened up a bit and they have become a little slippery in the snow and slush. This could be the case for all A/T type tires, I'm not sure as I have only personally had K02's and Goodyear Wrangers.

    She had that cylinder deactivation around 300miles but then she started losing another cylinder after the warranty so she didn't have the truck with those tires much longer

    Have had falken wildpeak at3ws for 20,000 miles now. I have zero complaints.
    They are great in the rain, mud, sand, and snow.
    These will definitely be my go to tire from now on.

    Bfg ko2’s are so overrated. I don’t know why they have such a cult following.
