Taking the road by storm with a Dura Grappler.
The Dura Grappler by Nitto is an amazingly stable, All Season, Highway, Light Truck Radial, offering a long tread life, ride comfort and high speed confidence to your SUV, light truck and CUV. Nitto also manufactures the Dura Grappler in the ‘E' load range for heavy duty LT sizes used by today's diesel trucks.
Engineered by Nitto to ensure highway comfort while also offering a long lasting tough tread, the Dura Grappler is engineered with an all season tread compound that enhances tread life as it prevents cracks and damage that occur when normal rubber tires are confronted by extremes in temperature. The Dura Grapplers all season tread compound has added polymers that ensure that the tire retains its pliability at high summer temperatures as well as near freezing winter ones.
This tread compound is then expertly molded into a tread pattern where bridges are added between tread blocks resulting in continuous ribs instead of individual tread blocks. The Dura Grappler offers 5 ribs in the P Metric Sizes, and 4 ribs in the in popular 'E' load range, heavy-duty LT sizes. The multi rib pattern helps improve tread life as it prevents heat buildup and reduces irregular wear. A pattern of circumferential grooves along the tire ensures wet traction as they are extremely efficient at evacuating water from under the tires footprint, preventing aquaplaning by ensuring the tread remains in contact with the road at all times even in bad weather. A waved sipe pattern on the tread blocks provides multiple biting surfaces for traction on lightly snowed upon surfaces or over wet roads while ensuring that the tread blocks rigidity is not compromised in any way.
Internally Nitto's the Dura-Belt® 3Steel Belted Technology reinforces the tire for enhanced stability that prevents irregular tread wear for a long wearing tread. The Dura Grappler also offers unique sidewall designs on either side so that you may customize the look of your vehicle.
