In the mud with the new tires

Got into the mud on the job with the new Nitto Trail grapplers. These tires are awsome. I had no problem going in or out. Sunk about 7 inches deep and they didn't spin just grabbed.. Climbed up the 6 inch curb and back out onto the driveway with no problem, until the homeowner sees the mess of mud on the new drive.

I have heard nothing but good things about these tires. How long have you had them and how are they wearing? Mileage gone down much? The only bad thing I have heard is how heavy they are.

Only had them for less than a week. I can't comment on wear yet. The guys at the tire shop did say they were heavy. They ride and handle well and the road noise isn't bad at all.
