Our team of product experts is available to help ensure you get the perfect tire size and design for your application. Let’s look at some of the most popular tires we sell and why our installations are the best in the Jersey shore.

Why We Use Nitto Tires

Nitto has been manufacturing premium tires for cars, light trucks and competition applications since 1949. The company has always been at the forefront of the latest trends and technologies. We’ve tried every brand of tire available, and Nitto continues to offer our clients an amazing balance of looks, performance and reliability.

Nitto Terra Grappler G2

The Terra Grappler G2 is our solution for light truck enthusiasts who want aggressive styling in a tire that doesn’t punish them for racking up the miles. The G2 is a true all-terrain tire that features deep siping, staggered shoulder lugs and variable pitch tread blocks for excellent grip on low-traction surfaces. The outer tread blocks feature coupling joints with the inner row of block to provide sure-footed on-road stability and excellent road surface feedback. Nitto rates G2 tires as being able to last as long as 65,000 miles.

Terra Grappler G2 tires are available in 17-, 18-, 20- and 22-inch diameters in more than 100 sizes that include OEM fitments of up to 36.5-inch diameters for amazing ground clearance. Tires are available in load ranges from C to E to suit heavy-hauling applications.

Nitto Ridge Grappler

Off-Road TiresIf you find yourself on an above-average number of off-road adventures, but still want a tire that’s quiet on the road, the Nitto Ridge Grappler is a great choice. Nitto calls the Ridge Grappler a hybrid terrain tire. It features a perfect combination of the features and performance of the premium all-terrain and mud-terrain products. The outer edge of the tires has staggered lugs with integrated stone ejection ribs. The center row of tread blocks provides multi-stepped edges for additional traction on loose surfaces and an inter-block reinforcement for confident and solid handling on the highway.

Ridge Grappler tires have two different sidewall designs. One side has a traditional tread pattern for an OEM look while the other has bold and pronounced lugs and aggressive styling.

Nitto offers the Ridge Grappler in 17, 18, 20 and 22-inch fitments with outer diameters as large as 37.76 inches. Load ratings include C, D, E and extreme-duty, 12-ply sidewall F ratings.

Nitto Trail Grappler

If rocks, mud and dirt are your thing, then the Nitto Trail Grappler mud-terrain tire is the right choice for your vehicle. The Trail Grappler features a large void ratio for traction in the slipperiest of situations. The arrangement of the tread blocks optimizes performance and a comfortable ride. While not as quiet as the Ridge Grappler, the Trail Grappler means you can still hear yourself think on the way to and from the trail. Tire sidewalls feature a three-ply design encased in a thick layer of rubber for excellent puncture resistance.

The Trail Grappler features Nitto’s trademark dual sidewall design. Choose deep V-shaped sidewall lugs or a more-traditional style with flat buttresses.

Trail Grappler tires are available in sizes from 15 through 24 inches with diameters as large as 39.76 inches to quench the thirst of the most extreme of off-road enthusiasts.
