After shopping around town and online for new tires for the truck, I settled on the Nitto Terra Grappler All Terrain tire. I purchased them online today, and even after the $100 shipping cost I’ll still save about $100 over buying them locally. I really wanted BFG All-Terrains, but after considering the cost and my reasons for wanting them, my practical side won out. I can only think of three or four occasions in the time I’ve owned my truck that I would have truly benefited from having better tires on it, and even then just moderately better tires would have sufficed. I only put about 5,000 miles on the truck each year, and so tread life wasn’t much of an issue. I doubt that in five years I’ll even own that truck, so this will likely be the last set of tires I put on it. I probably won’t make a special trip out into the desert just to test these tires out after I get them mounted, so it’ll be a while before I know how much better they are than my current tires.
