Nitto’s new Terra Grappler G2 all-terrain light truck and SUV tire delivers balanced on-road and off-road performance with a compelling mileage warranty.

12 220x169 Nitto Terra Grappler G2 All Terrain TireCypress, Calif. (September 23, 2014) – Ask any enthusiast what they want out of a tire and the answer you get is almost always proceeded by the word “more” – more traction, more stability, more sound abatement, more tread life, and more style. Nitto Tire U.S.A. Inc., a leading manufacturer of off-road and street performance tires, has listened to enthusiasts and announced the evolution of the company’s flagship light truck and SUV tire – the Terra Grappler G2. Available in both OE-replacement and plus-size fitments, the G2 was engineered to balance enthusiasts’ all-around performance demands with unprecedented treadwear.

Although the G2 visually resembles the original Terra Grappler, the tire has been re-engineered inside and out. The Terra Grappler G2 uses a new rubber compound that’s unique in Nitto’s current Grappler line which significantly improves treadwear. In fact, Nitto’s limited treadwear warranty for the Terra Grappler G2 covers 50,000 miles for LT-metric and floatation sizes and an eyebrow-raising 65,000 miles for hard-metric sizes. Read More→
