Nitto or Duratrac

So I have narrowed it down to a 285/65/r18 trail grappler or a 295/65r18 Duratrac. They are going on a leveled 2013 2500 crew cab. Any opinions on which is the better tire? Thanks

For what it's worth, I'm rocking Duratrac's on mine, no complaints.

I have the Nittos. They have 5,000 miles and are kind of noisy. It doesn't bother me at all tho. Not sure on level of noise with the duratracs. I do know the Nittos will get you around good in everything but snow. (haven't ever ran them in the snow, but will find out in the next couple weeks)!

trailgrapplers wear out fast if you do a lot of highway driving

I am on my second set of Duratracs and I have over 45k on them. Mostly highway miles. Best tires I have had.

Be going on my 3rd set of duratracs this winter. Had both 285 and 315's Been getting about 47-50k on a set, highway and paved roads with only minimal backroads use at the cottage. Great in the snow. I am running D rated 315/70/17's on h2's at the moment.

The key with any aggressive tire on our trucks is to ROTATE OFTEN or you will destroy them fast. I do mine every 4-6k.

I think it will be close. You will probably have to trim though.
