**NEW** Nitto Crosstek Review!

I recently had the opportunity to mount the all new Nitto Crosstek Heavy Duty tire on my truck and these things are nice! I received the Crosstek HD Directly from Nitto after they came to me then asked if I would try the Crosstek HD and give my honest review on them. They gave me the 285/70/17 Load range "E" Crosstek HD to replace my same size Terra Grappler. I liked the Terra Grappler before and considered changing to the Dura Grappler a few times to eliminate road noise. But, I was afraid I would get poor traction in the snow and rain. I think Nitto hit the spot with the Crosstek HD. They finally came up with a tire that accommodates more closely to an all terrain tire in my opinion.



So far daily driving It feels like they get a little better traction around corners and on take off then the Terra Grappler since more tire touches the road. The side walls are nice and stylish and to my surprise theses are actually a semi directional tire which few companies make in a all terrain tire. The best part of all is they cut down on the road noise dramatically! You could always here a rumble with the Terra Grapplers especially at highway speeds and the Crosstek HD's are mutch quieter. I drove on some rain slick roads and the Crosstek HD maintained excellent traction However, I could still spin the tires if I layed into it hard. I had the tires mounted and I do my own balancing. These tires were actually very close to being perfect and needed little to no tire weights added to the rim. Most tires of this size use a minimum of 2oz per wheel which is huge. I'd say that is a gain since alot of tires and wheels will throw regular wheel weights, unless you use the stick on style.



As of now I'm very happy with them and I'm interested to see how they wear. I'll get my first chance after the 18 hour drive and 1200 total mile trip to The T.S performance Event in May. In my opinion Nitto finally has the perfect tire for the daily driver with the Crosstek HD. Can’t wait to post up the results after towing and some miles.
