Ran 2 sets, 25k max mileage and hydroplane in heavy rain even when new. Switched back to BFG's 45K miles typical but don't have the good looks of the Nittos.
Dang, and I was ticked to only get 40k out of mine :eek:

325/65R18 (34.88x13) Terra Grapplers under a 4" lift. I second the hydroplane comment, but was only in puddles never had much issue in wet roads. I got just shy of 40k out of mine with some uneven wear, woulda got another 5-10k out of the worst tire, but one was shot and 1 in between the worst/best.

I thought on snowy/slushy/icy roads they were great, good bite into the hard pack snow (mostly noticed when breaking) but in mud or heavy wet snow they would pack in quickly and become slicks. Had to switch into 4x4 more times than I thought necessary just moving though light slick stuff.

Had 35s on my old f150 and personally hated them. Didn't like the bubble look of the sidewall and lost traction on wet road way too many times.

Well it wont be no time at all. LOL


i have them on my truck and i think only have about 18k on them and there already worn out. plus im always sliding on slick roads and ive been stuck on a damn dirt road several times. i think i might try the trail grapplers next

On my last set i got 54k out of them. I agree with the puddles thing. Even if i they dont get the best traction in the mud, i havent been stuck yet. Thats what 4x4 is for.

dunno about the quick wear option, i must not have checked that box when i ordered em :hehe:

i have just over 20k on em and i would conservatively put em at the halfway mark ;)

I have them and love them. I have a set of E range on some factory wheels with about 40 k on them and they still have plenty of wear left in them. I also have a set on my 20's and they seem to be wearing a little faster.

man the truck looks real nice, and clean. is that really a 4" lift?? thought it'd sit higher. still looks great.

Thanks man :ford:

Yes, and yes I thought the same :doh: its a little more than an inch or so higher than a leveling kit but sits a little low compared to others lifts. Still kinda wish I had gone with an Icon 4.5 (measures closer to 5") but its got the look and gets compliments so I don't know if I will spend all the extra cash to go up more.
