What’s Up in the Forums: This Durango Looks Mean as Hell with Nitto Terra Grappler G2s

Durango with Nitto Tires in the Snow

Tires, wheels and a leveling kit make this Dodge Durango a far more aggressive-looking SUV.

If you want to make your modern Dodge Durango look a whole lot more aggressive, the simplest way to achieve that is to add new wheels and tires. DodgeForum member NyRango went that direction, installing a leveling kit as well as new wheels and a set of Nitto Terra Grappler G2 tires, resulting in a “whole new Durango”.


When the OP first introduced us to his Dodge Durango, he explained that he had been lurking on the forum, researching information on a leveling kit for his sporty SUV. Once he had the information that he needed, the owner added a leveling kit, a new set of wheels and a set of Nitto tires.

“Been lurking for a while gathering info on leveling my D. Finally pulled the trigger and couldn’t be happier. Fitment was perfect and wheels have just enough poke (imo)
What i purchased
Tough Country 1.75″ leveling Kit
Vision Nemisis 11 wheels 18×9 5.5/5×127 lug patern 0 offset.”

These upgrades include a Tough Country 1.75″ leveling kit, Vision Nemisis 11 18-inch wheels and 265/65/18 Nitto Terra Grappler G2 tires. He also included a few pictures of the Durango before and after the upgrade.

Durango Before and After

As you can see in the pictures, the leveling kit, wheels and tires give the Durango a slightly lifted ride height and a much wider stance, with the zero-offset wheels allowing the tires to stick out of the fenders just far enough to give this Dodge SUV a far more aggressive stance than it had from the factory.

Snow Play

After showing us his Durango before and after the upgrades, the OP took his Dodge out to play in the snow and snap some pictures. These pictures show the aggressive stance of the big SUV from a variety of angles, giving us a better look at how the leveling kit, the wheels and the Nitto tires improve the look of the vehicle.

While some people will prefer having the wheels and tires tucked entirely inside of the body, we think that this Durango with the widened stance looks great and the majority of the community agrees.
