Went from 275/6520 to 295/6520.

Less than 1/4 " to fit in garage. Almost nerve racking.

Tire switch was from OEM Michelin to Nitto Grapplers G2. Actually have a 50K warranty.

So far little,higher, quiet but spongy while driving. I am sure they will harden up after 1,000 miles. I like the aggressive look as well.

Do they whistle at highway speed? Friend of mine raves about them until we hit the highway for 2 hours and had to endure the whistle. He swapped to Toyo AT’s and there was no more whistle

I have only had them for a 20 minute drive down the highway. No noises yet. I will be driving to OKC in a couple of weeks I'll keep an update. If they whistle I will be the old lady throwing in the tire into the stores window.

Good looking truck! How many miles did you get from the Michelins?

Truck is at 50K but I could have gone another 12K-15K. Which makes sense due to Michelin's warranty.

I was very hesitant to leave Michelin, this will be a test for me. I am usually brand loyal, but could not pass on this deal. Discount tire has always treated me well.

Time will tell.

Just took these from parking lot at QT. First time I have tried to post a picture from my phone.
Hope it works.

I had the same tires on my Dodge 4x4. I loved them. They are fairly quiet on the highway for an off road tire. I would certainly buy these tires again. You did good!

Terra Grappler G2 are good tires... quiet and can get an easy 45k miles out of them if you keep them rotated.

Throw a level kit on the front and go get you some 37x12.50 Toyo MT’s on that bad boy.

How much room do you have length wise?

I fit vertically in mine but not lengthwise due to the front end replacement

I run Michelins on all my personal vehicles, I have not found a better tire out there.

On my work vehicles they get house brand tires.

My garage is an older garage, I can fit my motorcycle, truck and wife's cat all next to each other.

Correct. Less than 1500for all out the door. Included balancing, certifications and tax. Also getting a $70.00 rebate.

You say the new tires are spongy. My guess is the air pressure is not up to towing specs and when you do air it up it won’t fit in the garage.

Tires are at 68psi.

Spongy takes awhile for the tires to harden up from driving. Happens on all new tires.

Michelin's are top of the line highway tires.
For all terrian pattern you should go with Toyo AT's, there are better than Nittos. They ride better, last longer, and are less noise on the road. Trade them out while you still can.

Toyos and Nittos are made by the same company but Toyo is their top of the line brand.

With a 50K prorated warranty, I believe I am good. These are the newer G2's.

There not bad, I have run three sets of them in the past, never got more than 40,000 miles out of them on leveled of lifter trucks.

I run Toyos now, last set I just replaced a month ago. got 55,000 miles out of them on a lifter truck. Toyos just last a lot longer.
