Love my duratracs. A little more aggressive than a typical AT, but really good in rain. Haven't seen snow more than 1/2" yet.

General Grabber AT3 new version photos I took at local tire store. 30 X 9.5 R15 (runs about 0.25" tall and 0.5" wide for the size of tire).

Larger lugs and voids than old version, and more stone ejector ridges (which also help self cleaning of mud and snow). Note the addition of two ejector ridges between each outer lug.

I have seen the older version. It has smaller lugs, closer together, less ejector-cleaning-ridges. The old version looks very much more like a BFG AT. New version has beefier tread than BFG AT.

The new version has the same shape lugs as before (or approx same), but each lug is larger and each void is larger. Not sure if the pics really show that since there is nothing to compare size and show scale. I should have put a coin in the photo. Hindsight is 20/20.

I loved these tires, except for their harsh ride quality on and off road. Every bump was a painful event to my bad back. However, if you have a healthy spine, don't need a soft ride, and you want excellent traction from an AT, then this on of the best traction ATs, IMO. Price is low, excellent value-bargain for what it is. They are German made, I've heard.

However, I now get same benefits from Cooper AT3 plus a soft(er) ride (soft riding for a load C), and it's made in USA. Price is medium. Good value.

Grabber AT3 (new version) pics follow:

Those look identical to my AT2's honestly, other than mine being about bald. The only difference I see is a possible deeper tread groove, the AT2's and BFG T/A KO's are advertised at 16/32" tread depth. But I cant find anything about these "AT3" tires on the internet other than you talking about them. Google only returns results for the Cooper AT3.

I think "AT3" is just a typo. I'm also unconvinced that they're really any different than they were. They look exactly the same as I remember AT2s being, and lots of comparison to older photos of AT2s shows no difference either--siping, ridges, stud locations, sidewall, etc. Larger tire sizes will obviously have larger lugs and voids, so maybe Charley is remembering a smaller size AT2 in comparison to the 30x9.5?

They are still a decent tire for the price, mine still have grip in most terrains despite being almost worn.



as you can see mine look identical to the ones pictured above.
