My 2002 Sport is my DD but I do like to go out for a little light wheeling. I bought a set of four 30X9.5X15 to replace a very worn, inferior set of LT A/T tires. I looked at several other brands of tires that are highly recommended on several Jeep and 4X4 forums but I kept coming back to the General Grabber AT2. American made, reasonable price point, and two different tire dealers recommended them over the other, most comparable tire.
With over 5K miles on them, and one rotation, I am very pleased with them. They ride well for a LT tire when properly aired up or down as the situation demands. I haven't hit ice, real mud or snow yet but wonderful traction on and off road, wet and dry Vs my old tires. And they look good, too. They get my recommendation!
30.Nov.14--I now have about 27,000 miles on these tires, time for an update:
Having racked up a hair over half of their rated life (50,000 miles), I can say the tread looks great. I expect to exceed 50K for the life of these tires, based on my style of driving, and maintenance.
For my wife's anniversary gift, we spent today wheeling with some friends, a couple of whom are on this forum. Nothing too strenuous, on old, un-maintained roads in a state forest. A few ledges, washed out areas, an abandoned meadow and field, deep, muddy ruts, and a few puddles. OTOH, there was 3"-6" of slushy, wet snow to make it a little more challenging. Some of the roads were un-tracked but not anymore!
I had my doubts but the Generals handled well! They pulled me, with lots of coaxing, out of deep, muddy ruts. On thin, off-camber parts of the trail, I didn't slide into rocks or trees--a feeling I became all too familiar with in a couple of pickups in the past.
Picking my lines, except for clearance issues, they allowed me to keep up with a couple of Jeeps on 35"-37", lauded (exalted) Duratracs. They couldn't get me over a log I high-centered. I took one by-pass around a ledge that was more than my stocker could clear. But, hey, we all turned around where the "road" had collapsed and slumped into a ravine.
For an all-terrain tire, they are pretty competent off the pavement, more so than I expected.
22.May 2016--48,000 miles on three tires...
Last year I lost a tire when I cut a sidewall on the trail. Since I didn't have a matching spare, I bought two new. Now I'm able to do a five tire rotation, and have a full size, matching spare. (The older tires are rotated in/out of spare. While the two newer tires are also rotated but stay on the pavement, for now, until they wear closer in tread depth to the older three tires.)
The three original AT2s I bought in March 2013 now have 48K miles on them. On the road I keep them inflated between 28-30 lbs, and with regular 5K rotations they have plenty of tread left on them; they will certainly exceed the rated 50K miles. I'm still impressed with these tires.
