anyone know anything about these tires?

General Grabber AT 2 (On-/Off Road All-Terrain)


The Grabber AT2 is General Tire's On-/Off-Road All-Terrain light truck tire developed pickup truck and sport utility vehicle drivers looking for exceptional traction over all terrrains. The Grabber AT2 is designed to combine long wear and reliability with year-round competence on- and off-road in dry, wet and wintry conditions.

The Grabber AT2 features a chip- and tear-resistant tread compound molded into an aggressive, symmetric tread design featuring five rows of independent tread blocks to blend on-road handling with off-road traction. The tread blocks feature multiple traction edges and sipes, as well as are molded to accept optional metallic studs to increase wintry weather traction. Tread block sizes and shapes have been computer-optimized to allow the aggressive tread pattern to remain relatively quiet and even wearing during on-road and highway driving. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts (some sizes reinforced with nylon) on top of a two-ply polyester cord body to combine strength and durability with a quiet ride.

here are some pictures of what they look like.. im looking at getting thesein a.. 255/70R15 ..... what do you guys think, if you dont know anything about them.

this kid that i work with, his dad has those tires on his KJ and likes them alot especially in snow. They look like fairly good tires. I've read some good reviews on them when I was looking for tires but there weren't many places around here that sold them.

If im not mistaken these people call the budget A/t tires. Ive seen people with them on there trucks but never ran them myself... I always run BFG, Maxxis.... So not sure how the Grabber do on the trail

I have seen these on Jeep Patriots and as far as I know they have been pretty successful. I like the way they look and I have heard good things about them.

They're comparable to the BFG AT. Heck they look almost the same.

I'd get them if you DD yours and wheel occasionally.

Drop them down below 20 psi and they should grip pretty well.

Good pricing too.

Have the same tires on my '97. Put a washer behind the steering stops to keep them off the LCA if using stock wheels.
Great traction in rain or dry, very stable at high speeds. Takes more weight to balance though. Mine have been on for 28 k miles and look great with even wear. Rotated every 6 k miles.
