I purchased the Nitto Crosstek in a 265 65 17 from NTB for $651 OTD. That price included the road hazard and a 4 wheel alignment.

The tires look really nice on the truck. I was very pleased with them. I took a pic, but I don't have a hosting service. I know its subjective, but they appear very aggressive which papa likes! I've put on about 150 mi, and the tires are dead silent on asphalt and concrete. The Duelers were quiet on asphalt, but rather noisy on concrete, first win for the Nitto's. The traction is stellar on dry pavement. In places where I would spin on launch making right turns, no slip! So far so good, I will keep you posted. Especially, on how they behave in rain and snow when we get some.

Edit:

I guess I avoided having a photo account for as long as I could. Photos uploaded.

EDIT: We had a really good rain today and the tire stick like glue. Under acceleration and extreme braking. Again I say, so far so good!

Hmm... I thought about doing that early on... I may revisit.

Any other updates on the tires? How they perform in the rain? I'm contemplating in getting these as well.

They are going strong. It's been raining a great deal here lately, so I've thoroughly tested them in that environment. While I've managed to break them loose on hard acceleration from a stop; they perform great in rain under normal circumstances even hard braking. I only have a little over 2000 miles on them, i think, but I'm certainly happy thus far.

What pressure are you running in these tires? How's the ride quality?

I'm running them at 35 psi. The ride quality is fine... I mean, without having ridden on anything else as far as new tires go... I would not complain. They are quiet on asphalt, not much worse on concrete, and sticky in the rain. I can't wait 'til we get some snow for the last test.

I just purchased these from NTB ($780 w/ 3 year alignment, roadside, etc... after their buy 2 get 2 promo). Absolutely love everything about them except for one thing: MPG. did my first fill-up with these and I was averaging a good 3-4 MPG less than I was with the factory BF Goodrich. This was all highway, too. I'll keep an eye on it the next few weeks, but seriously hoping it improves. Wind was pretty strong today, tho, so I'm sure that accounted for some of the issue, slightly.

Otherwise, cornering is nice, grip on loose gravel uphill is MUCH improved over my old A/Ts, and road noise is minimal. just added a few PSI to each tire. running around 38-40 now, but have only driven to town and back since doing that.

I like those tires, I just got me a pair and they look so much better than the general aw's and the ride is very smooth after the first 300 miles ive put on them. Definitely consider to anybody who wants a good all season/light off-road tires

My mpg didn't change drastically, if at all. My city highway mix still yields 14.5 - 15.8. I run mine at 36 PSI.

I am still enjoying mine! I actually had an opportunity to drive in a snow storm at highway speeds on a 800 mile trek from Wisconsin to Northern VA. The tires performed very well. I did not lose traction once. By the time I reached the mountains of PA, I was driving as if the streets were dry... Great tires at an excellent price!

I must agree - good all-around tire. Very quiet for its looks and feels very solid on the road. I have been running my tires for 3k miles now and they do very well in most of conditions. Dry and wet roads are no issue. Yesterday i tried ging up a steep incline with road covered in ice and had to go to 4wd. Once in 4wd - no slipping. I have yet to try them in deep snow, but compacted snow is no problem.
One negative is that MPGs are down a bit, but this is due to size up tires I went with (266-70-17):
Overall, i'm very pleased with these tires:

It's been nearly four years since I put these on my '08 Pathfinder, and probably around 60-65k miles. With NTB's b2g2 offer, I'll probably be purchasing another set this month.

I average about 20.5-21mpg hwy at 80mph and 87 octane. 22.5+ at 65 but i can't go that slow.

Never had an issue with them these past four years
