HYBRID EXTREME-DUTY LIGHT-TRUCK 4X4 TYRE
The Nitto Ridge Grappler® represents the next generation of the Grappler family, blending the durability of the Trail Grappler® M/T with the comfort and longevity of Terra Grappler® A/Ts.
A true do-it-all tyre aimed at serious 4WDers, the Nitto Ridge Grappler® provides a quiet, comfortable ride with its tight centre tread while the deep, aggressive sidewall lugs afford aggressive off-road performance.
This ‘hybrid’ tyre design allows the Nitto Ridge Grappler® to tackle any terrain with confidence, whether that be the Talawana Track or taking a trip to the shops.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
2-Ply or 3-Ply, You Choose
All imperial sizes and some metric sizes use heavy-duty, 3-ply construction similar to the Trail Grappler M/T while most metric sizes use a lighter, 2-ply construction that’s still a step up from Terra Grappler A/Ts, increasing comfort and flexibility.
Alternating Shoulder Grooves
Shoulder grooves are arranged in varied widths and lengths to clear mud and maintain traction. Lateral Z grooves are set in a zig-zag pattern to provide biting edges for traction.
Stepped Block Edges
Alternating tapered edges and stepped block edges provide cut-through and additional biting edges on slick, hard surfaces.
Staggered Shoulder Lugs
Alternating shoulder tread provides additional off-road traction, increasing contact with rut edges or rocks with the ability to paddle through soft terrain.
Dual Sidewall Designs
Like all Grapplers, the Ridge Grappler features two bold sidewall designs. One side features a more traditional pattern while the other side features a new, aggressive block design.
Reinforced Block Foundation
Tapered base extensions connect neighbouring tread blocks to each other under load, adding rigidity to reduce tread flex and increase stability.
Variable Pitch Tread Pattern
Advanced sound equipment was used to create a pattern that provides a quiet and smooth highway ride.
Textured ribs protect the bottom of grooves from stone drilling while encouraging self-cleaning.
