When the customers speak, it is always a good idea to listen. As a leading manufacturer of off-road, street and SUV performance tires, Nitto Tire owns a reputation for being “fueled by enthusiast”. They offer highly rated tire products that are top shelf performers. Nitto identified a small gap in their catalog and filled it by listening to what their customers were requesting.
The new Recon Grappler is a true All-Terrain light truck tire with an aggressive tread pattern engineered for limited road noise while providing incredible traction off-road. Primarily designed for versatility and durability, the Recon Grappler will be able to go the distance. This new tire is offered with an impressive limited treadwear warranty which covers 55,000 miles for LT-metric and flotation sizes.
Off-road enthusiasts are die hard loyalists when it comes to their preferred tire flavors. The Nitto Tire Grappler lineup is highlighted by the Ridge Grappler M/T and the Terra Grappler G2 A/T. The Recon fits in between the two offering both off-road performance and a long-lasting treadwear warranty. Now customers can get a quiet comfortable ride combined with capable off-road agility.
