Got some Nitto Terra Grapplers installed yesterday on my 2008 GX470. I've only put about 60 miles on them so far, but I'm loving them. They ride smooth for an A/T tire and I think they look good. These are 265/65/17's - same size as stock. Gas mileage seems to have improved a bit over the General Grabbers that were replaced, but that could just be because the alignment was off and has been corrected.
Looking forward to seeing how these things do in the snow!

Good to hear RC. I plan on rotating every other oil change, so hopefully mine will last that long!
They should easily last that long. I've read of people getting 50-70K out of them! I measured my tread back in March 2014;

I measured them two weeks ago and there's 7/32" of tread left, new is 13.6/32", so slightly more than half left. If I can get another 15K miles out of them I'll be happy.
This was my first set of A/T tires and I love these Nittos. They ride excellent on dry pavement and do great on wet pavement too. It rains here almost every day in the Summer and I was surprised at how well they gripped on wet pavement. I've used them driving on the beach and dry / wet sand is no problem either. The only thing I haven't had them in is mud.
Noise is almost non-existent. They do make a little noise when going around 40MPH+ but it's not bad at all, nothing like a mud tire humming. I love having a quiet cabin and the noise doesn't bother me at all. If you're listening to the radio at a low volume or talking with a passenger(s) you wouldn't even notice it.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.
