Nitto Trail Grappler VS Nitto Mud Grappler VS Goodyears Kevlar MT/R

Im looking for a radial tire that is puncture resistant. So far out of all the tires iv searched these 3 seem to be the best puncture resistant and good all around offroad tire's on the market. If any of ya'll are running these tires please post pic's. Ill be running them in 35/12.50/17


Thanks

And I have been told that the Nitto's rubber gets hard after a while...Any truth to that?

Ive rode in a rig on trail grapplers and they are quiet, But IMO a harder or the lugs glaze over easy on nittos. Had another friend run the 'dune' grapplers and they caramelized/glazed over at 60%+/-.

The silica in the kevlars stay decent all the time. Plus the price and ease to get them are a lot better. Nothing wrong with nittos, But the price lol.
