Nitto Mud Grapplers on stock wheels

Is there anyway you can run these tires on stock wheels with the 2.5" Autospring? I love the look of these tires. Does anybody now how long they will last? But IM thinking they probaly wouldnt be good for a daily driver right?

should be able to- i know i've seen someone's rig with them mounted on stockers... what size are you figuring?
35" will be your max with just a 2.5"AS

Yep, theres a guy who has them on his stock wheels..

I had a set of the mud grapplers on my last truck (35x12.50x18) They wore very quickly.. I only managed to get 18K miles out of them on my truck.

And incase you didnt know they are extremely LOUD! If your looking for a quite ride you better start looking at some different tires..

wow that truck looks sick. I had some Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ on my truck which I loved but I dont think they make them in 35x12.5x18.

That picture is actually my truck. Ive got 12k on those tires now, and dont expect much more than 8k out of them. They are too loud of a tire, Im gonna go with something very smooth for my next tire. It feels like the truck is shutting off at braking and take-offs with these tires because of the tread pattern.

Be warned if you do mount these tires on there, tire companys like discount dont really want you to leave with them. The outside lugs rub hard against the suspension without spacers. It eventually eats through the rubber after a few miles. I had a friend at discount that let me leave them on and drive off after they mounted them.

heres a pic of when they were new.
