Jeep got a nice wash today in the rain! Now I don't don't need to wash it for another 4 months

So i have had my general grabbers for a while now. So far i like them a lot. In the rain tonight my jeep didnt slip or slide anywhere. The tires felt like they were glued to the ground. On my old 98 i had the same size tires in BFG AT's and they would loose traction all the time in the rain. On the dry road they are perfect the big lugs really help holding my line when im going fast in a turn. Off road they grip instead of slip. Only thing i do not like about them is they are heavy for a 33. They still look brand new after a few thousand miles on them also.

Sounds pretty good, how do they compare cost wise to BFG's?

Are you going on the Potato Ridge run tomorrow morning? It would be cool to see 'em in action!

Man, sorry I'm so slammed tonight and this whole weekend. I've got a shock tuning appointment on Sunday and still a lot of work to have it ready to go for that. Attempting to bleed the clutch is easily something we could do in the parking lot at UNLV and if it worked it would save you a drive. I don't really think that's it but it would be a 10 minute gig to give it a shot and if it worked rad...

Nobody from here or wm702 can get over there to give you a hand?

I wish i had time to help people. Being a plumber is great and ****y at the same time. I hardly have time to fix my own rig and it pisses me off.
Oh well rant off.

Mike good luck with your clutch, i hope you get the provlem solved soon.

I've always had pretty good experience with BFG A/T. They are all I have really run. My duratrac A/t s are awful in the rain. If it is real wet I can't get on the freeway without putting it in 4wd. But they are great in the snow.

Dad just sent me a chuckler..


A state trooper stopped a 95 year old woman on Interstate 75, and noticed as he was checking her driver’s license, that she had a concealed carry permit.
Upon approaching the vehicle he asked "Got any guns with you ma'am?" She said "Yes, a .45 Smith & Wesson in the glove compartment, a .357 magnum in the console and a .38 special in my purse. The trooper said “Lady, what are you scared of?” She responded “NOT A DAMN THING”

Same here. My first YJ had BFG AT's and I LOVED them - they wore really well, were relatively quiet, and excellent in all conditions.

I have had bad luck with them. Tread separation and broken belts. 2 different sets. They are quiet but my generals are probably even quieter. BFG's are lighter though. I got my whole set up with pro comp rims for 1067 otd. I couldnt beat that with any other decent tire other than BFG's.

My BFG AT's were great in the rain at first. As they wear, they turned to ****. I almost ate the back end of a BMW last night because I couldn't modulate the brake pedal lightly enough not to induce a skid. The only thing that saved my *** was letting off the brakes completely and steering into the median. On my way back home, a right turn induced a drift like you wouldn't believe through an intersection. Not the best feeling in the world with no front sway bar but did get a thumbs up from some chick in the car next to me at the next light. Guess from the outside it looked pretty good.
