Opinions on general grabber

What's your guys opinions on general grabber 35x12.50r15. How the ride? How's the wear? How's the noise? How's the look?

The sidewalls are very thick and tough, which is great if you need that, but that also makes them ride very stiff/harsh for an AT. Feels like an MT when you hit a bump.

One of the ruggedest ATs you can buy, but not very civilized for ride comfort.

Has a slight growl from 35 to 45 mph. Not bad for noise.

Looks mean (for an AT).

Are you referring to the general grabber at2's or the general 'grabber' red lettered sidewall?
I have the at2's and do great, For what an a/t is made for. As mentioned stiff sidewalls, But nothing a few psi drop cant fix to an extent.
If you mean the grabber, Only thing I can say about them is, They have a nice thick sidewall too and they are a heavy tire from what I have read. Good luck either way

Good question Kiowa. I assumed he meant Grabber AT2, but maybe not.

Then I have no idea how they are. I've heard their sidewalls are stiff, but that's second hand info to me since I've never tried them.

Never tried them personally but a few friends have and i have watched them work. They look awesome and work pretty well. They are a desert tire, so they are built tough. They Ride decent (find a pressure that gives a nice ride, yet correct pattern), and are not too loud. In rocks and mud they wont be a showstopper but for occasional wheeling, they will do fine. Compare it to an aggressive all terrain. As for wear, i had a customer with them 33x1050 on an f150 and they wore in 25k. Yet another had them 35 1250 on an XJ and he got 40-50k. Depends on the application. Good luck hope my experiences help.

I have the red letter grabber on my YJ in the 35" flavor. On road the ride good at 25psi (chalk line for even ). I have roughly 8-9k on them. On wet roads they are better then the km2 on my XJ. In snow they are a wash compared to km2 and on rocks, gravel, loose dirt and sand they are very good but the km2 seems better on slickrock. Due to compound. My generals are also siped but they seem to be wearing faster then my km2's

i've got 35x12.50x17 general grabber red letters on my tj, love them. they are stiff, but i run 35 psi to ease it up a little bit. they're virtually silent on the asphalt, which is a biggy for me. i've got about 4,000 miles on them and rotated them and they're wearing great. love the look, love the performance. i would definitely recommend them. moderately priced too.

They are awesome!


Quiet easy driving, decent in the rain, great in the rocks, not to bad in the mud, and awesome wear 5k on them and no wear on them yet.

If you spin them they do chunk.

Only thing I know about them is that they are one of the heaviest tires money can buy for a street legal Jeep, and for that reason alone I'd never touch them. I looked at a 31x10.50 that was on display at 4Wheel Parts and it was hard to handle. I can't imagine fooling with them in a 33 or 35 inch variety. No thanks. And talk about robbing horsepower....

My bfg are roughly the same weight, and I found them for 182 a piece so that kind of why I'm going with them as well is because they aren't as expensive as some as the other, and the money I save from that will go to regearing

4L and 4L I have no problems spinning them in soup or rocks
