When I was looking for tyres I did consider them but from memory I either couldn't find any dealers close by, the prices were in my opinion high or they didn't supply to Aus in my size.

You are right they have a very big following in the US, maybe you can trial for the rest of us PajeroClub forumites?

Getting new shoes next month and afriend suggested these tyres.He runs the muds and is happy with them. Found a few supliers in Brisvegas ( one being a friend ) although not a lot of stock held in brisbane. If I do get them I will give the feedback. Hoping I wasn't the first guinea pig.

Default Terra grapplers

I am currently running them on my 05 DiD pajero. 265/70 R16

Have done 30000kms on them so far and they are wearing quite well. Happy with them onroad wet and dry not too noisy and have been great on the beach and trails. If I get good KMS out of the tyres I'd buy them again.

If I didn't find cheap duratrac's, I would've gone for the Nitto's. Seem to tick all the boxes.

Hi all,

I too am keen to hear your opinions and experiences with these tyres. I have just picked up a new (to us) 2012 NW Platinum, stock standard with these Terra Grappler A/T's fitted.

The tyres have only been fitted for a couple of thousand km's, and we have only driven a few hundred km's on them so far, including one trip to the Grampians where we did some of the easier tracks which, for the majority of the time, were just dry dirt and rocky roads with a few sandy sections and small creek crossings.

The car is new (to us), so I really can't provide a great review due to a lack of comparisons. On road they do not seem noisy at all, and I've been impressed with them in the wet and dry.

Time will tell as to how they wear and, as I get the car prepped up and start doing more technical tracks, how they handle varying terrains.

Dave

Any more feedback on Nitto tyres?.

We are tossing up between these an MT ATZ P3

I had the old ATZ on my Nav and they were fantastic, but a bit noisy

As this set is on the family car I am after good wet weather performance and low noise

Cheers Trent

If you want low noise I'd be going the nitto's, the mickey's have a bit of a clap to them.

I've done about 2000 km on Terra Grapplers in the last 3 weeks. Mainly highway work, some dirt track and a bit of beach. They seem good, but I need more time for a more complete idea of how they'll go. They are very quiet compared to the BFG A/Ts they replaced.

And they were half the price of BFGs at Bob Jane.

I have them in the 265/75/r16 on an 06np. I've had them for about 10 months now and they seem to be wearing quite well after bout 20000 km. They are very quiet, way quieter than the bfg ats I had on before although they were fairly worn so its apples and oranges I guess.
But so far the only regret is that I didn't go 285/75/r16 . They looked massive compared to the 265/70/r16s when I got them but now they look small again haha.
