Looks great man. How are those tires for daily driving? I just took out the leveling kit and 33s off of my tahoe. Put on 31" Toyo AT2s. Feels like a brand new car.

In my opinion, the ridge grappler is the best tire on the market. This is my second set of them (had a set on my F150 before I put the forces on) and they are amazing. No road noise, and they can take serious abuse. I put A few thousand miles on my f150 with these, and they showed no signs of wear even with 1k of those miles were hard towing.

The key to a better ride, especially on something as dinky as my taco, is not going with load range E. These are load range C, and ride just as good as my stock tires.

I did bilstein 5100s paired with old man emu coils to provide the lift instead of a leveling kit. I tried my best to go with quality parts and no ruin the ride so I’d enjoy driving it. And I can really say I enjoy it.

*ive literally had every tire Nitto and Toyo make for trucks, as well as BFG all terrains and mud terrains. The BFG mud terrains SUCK*

What is the longest that you have kept a set of the Ridge Grapplers. I have tired many pair of Nitto and Toyo, my results have been mixed but most don't last more than 35-40K.

Since going to BFG AT KO2, my past two sets I have seen 60K miles of use out of each set. Same goes for my father who is running the same BFGs. The BFGs offer such a smooth ride and make zero noise.

On a side note, great rim selection with this ride. Looks beefy.

Yep. That's what destroyed the ride on my Tahoe, load range E tires. 5100s are a great shock

I don’t think I’ve kept any tire longer than 15k. I get bored and switch a lot. I also hardly keep vehicles that long lol. But the other important thing with tire longevity is air pressure. I like to keep mine around 40psi on my half tons to keep the balance of fuel mileage and tire wear along with a decent ride quality. The tires I’ve kept the longest we’re Nitto Trail grapplers, and they wear awesome too.
