General grabbers on xj anyone??!!

I need new tires really bad For winter and found some 235/70/16 general grabbers. I wanted bfg at but there 200 a tire. I found these in same size for 120 a tire but there p rated passenger tire and no load c like bfg. Does it matter? Will they still be durable? I don't do much off-roading but my stock xj need better tires for snow and I want something better and beefier.

Would the p rated be fine? I would be saving 80 bucks a tire or should I say **** it and get bfg. Thanks. And any pics of grabber 235/70/16 on Cherokee please post. Thanks so much guys

I know they are pricey, but Iv'e been running BFG All Terrains KO's for 10+ years and the wear and over all capabilities are great. Just switched to the KO2's and they are great as well.

generals are low end, I for the money found firestone destination at to be the best quality and value combination, my daughters XJ just had a set put on for around $100.00 ea,

While begrudgingly contributing to yet another "best tire" thread, a question to the OP is: which "General Grabber" are you referring to? HTS, AT, etc? Not enough information. It is akin to asking if "Goodyear Wranglers" are any good, when there is huge disparity between SRAs, Duratracs, and AT-S. Just sayin'.

x2 on the firestone destination AT, run them on my WK and love them. The XJ has Cooper ST Maxx, I can't speak to the Generals.

Thank you to everyone that responded. I don't know how to individual Reply to each comment. When I was talking about tires I met General grabber ats. I've had bfg at and they were fantastic on my truck but I don't know if they're worth the extra hundred bucks on a xj but I guess from what your saying they are . I was looking at the Firestone tires but they are also p rated. Does it matter between P rated and load c? Does The heavier tire in the BFG matter? If it doesn't then I'll just get them thanks guys so much. Your the best .

I may be a little late but you may want to check out m astercraft courser c/t's. I have had several sets on my jeeps and one old blazer they are a nice cross between an a/t and m/t. They work good in snow too. Probably cost more than the grabbers and less that bfg's. I think i paid 160 per tire this year. Those two tread designs are not rated for severe snow. Just my .02 cents, but I would not go with either because they are a light duty a/t.

If your primary purpose is snow traction, and aren't going to spring for winter-only tires, then the Firestone Destination AT are rated well and a good choice. Don't worry about the p-rating; in fact, that may be a better choice than a heavier c-rated tire for your intended use. A p rated tire will be lighter, may ride better, and get slight better acceleration and MPGs with less rotational mass.

Walmart- Goodyear wrangler radials p235/75r16 -$82/each

I have a set of p235/75r15s on my 89 XJ and haven't got stuck in mud or anything else, did have 1 tire pop(think I ran over something crossing train tracks) however I haven't had them in snow yet. Have had them about 6 months on my DD and they don't seem to have any wear on them or not much anyways. Figured they'll do until I can save up $1k for some bfg's

x3 on the Destination A/Ts. Have ran them on a 2wd pickup and an XJ and they did well in all weather conditions, including a foot of snow. They clean out well.

I am never heard of them before. Seems like a good tire. I'll have to look more info on it and find out what others say. If there cheaper then the bfgs then that's good. Not paying 200 a tire haha. Even if there good enough. Not worth it so I'll look into it. Thanks dude

Yeah I was looking at p rated and it might be better then load c. I don't wanna get super super worse mpg lol. It's my daily driver not trail rig so it matters haha. You are right and I agree. I'll look more into the tires and see. Thanks
