Re: 35" Nitto Mud Grappler fit with mini lift???

Another option if you really want the 35" mud tire is the Hankook MT. The 35x12.5x18 size is "skinnier" than the NMG.

Re: 35" Nitto Mud Grappler fit with mini lift???

Or go with I believe a 285/75R17 and that's a 34" tire IIRC. I'm sure there's similar sizing for 18" rims

Re: 35" Nitto Mud Grappler fit with mini lift???

ok so to recap, the nitto mud grapplers at 35" with a mini lift will rub when making full lock turns or with hard bounce on the front wheel well, this can be fixed with a PWM but still might rub if thrashing the trails. An extra 4" lift would greatly assist this issue but still might rub now and then pending on the turn of the wheel. do i have this correct?

Re: 35" Nitto Mud Grappler fit with mini lift???

ditch the mud graps and get the trail graps in 35's muds are too wide. this is what i did, leveling kit with 35" bfg km2's on stock wheels, very minor rub without pwm, did the pwm, no more rub. i ran this for a year. got the spindle lift added now 35's look perfect. saved time and money by not getting the 33's the trying to sell them to get 35's. i still get 15mpg

Pops....I'm new to this Forum but really like the look of the 33's on your Armada. I have a (09 Titan SE Crew Cab 4x4) and plan on putting on the 1.5 inch leveling kit and wanted to put (295/70/18) on stock wheels but after reading about Torque Converter issues and rubbing after the Pinch Weld Mod(PWM) I think I'm leaning more toward the 33's. I really like the Nitto Terra Grappler-All Terrain's... is that was is on your Armada in the photos pre-6 inch lift. Also since I have a 09 do I need the PWM with the 33's to eliminate rub with the 1.5 inch leveling kit???

Sorry for all the questions you seem to be very knowledgeable in this area. I look forward to your response.

Yep, that's right... The 2009 are taller than 2004-2007 models were so the 1.5" lift on a 2009 should be good to go... The 325/60-18 Terra Grapplers "should" also fit on yours at stock height too...

Pops....Thank you for your response. 35's would be nice on my truck but I don't have the BT package and only have the 2.94 gears and don't feel like changing them out or doing any other Lift-mod at this time to try to avoid the Torque converter issues I've read about. So I think I will go with the 325/60/18 Nitto All-terrains.

Just to Re-cap: I plan on doing the 1.5 inch leveling kit regardless but you are saying that I don't need the leveling kit for them to fit and I (Don't) need the PWM? I really don't want to due the PWM if I don't have to.

Thank you again for all your information and support.

Re: 35" Nitto Mud Grappler fit with mini lift???

just to clear up any questions on the bfg mud terrains, I have the same ones as titanboy 35/12.5/18 bfg mud terrain and it is not a true 35 inch tire like the nitto. my tires only measure 33.5 from the ground to the top of the tire and I have a 3 inch leveling kit on mine, i'll be going with a 33/13.5/18 nitto mud grappler soon for my next set.

One easy way would be to create it in a Thread Reply, Copy it, then paste it into your signature.
