On-road, the Terra Grapplers are remarkably quiet, offering solid handling and good road manners, even in wet conditions. Even at 50 psi, the ride quality was good on this heavy-duty truck. On dirt, the Terra Grapplers come alive, offering positive traction under a variety of conditions, including sand, silt, and gravel, even at street pressures.
For the true off-pavement test, we aired down to 20 psi all around and hit the rocks. The Terra Grappler's wraparound tread design not only looks cool, but provides an extra measure of traction and sidewall protection on the rocks. Even with a Load Range D tire, the Terra Grapplers managed to efficiently form around big rocks.
Making a tire and wheel purchase for your truck should be dependent on how you drive it and where you take it. If you're in the market for a great all-around tire that offers excellent road manners and great off-road performance, check into Nitto's new Terra Grappler.
Hot WheelsOne of the easiest ways to change the look of your truck is with a new set of wheels and tires, and one of the hottest wheels on the 4x4 market today is Weld Racing's Stone Crusher. Part of Weld's Super Single lineup, the Stone Crusher is a tough, two-piece, forged-alloy truck wheel that is 100 percent CNC-machined. Built tough, with load ratings between 2,400 and 3,200 pounds per wheel, the Stone Crusher and sister wheel, Mountain Crusher, are some of the most popular wheels on the market today. They are offered in several sizes and backspacing, from 15x8- to 18x10-inch, and come in a variety of lug patterns. They really made a difference in the look of our Chevy 1500 HD test mule.
