Grip,traction and value for your money is what sets this tire apart from many of the leading competitor all-terrain brands.

In conditions such as dirt, gravel, forested trails, sand and snow, General Tires Grabber A/T 2 always finds a way to stick your vehicle to the ground.

A light truck tire developed for pickup truck and sport utility vehicle drivers, the Grabber A/T have been doing the rounds for awhile now, building up a stellar reputation based on their longevity, reliability and year-round competence on and off road in dry,wet and wintry conditions.

No obstacle is too challenging for the Grabber A/T

They can adapt to a wide variety of terrain, weather conditions and driving styles.

A special chip and tear resistant compound is molded into a aggressive, symmetric self-cleaning tread design that features five rows of independent tread blocks to balance on-road handling with off-road traction.

General Tires GRABBER AT 2 Tread

The Grabber A/T does especially well in wintry driving conditions. Even a blizzard won’t slow these tires down. They’re truly a force to be reckoned with in the snow. To increase wintry weather traction, the tread blocks on the Grabber A/T feature multiple traction edges and sipes, and have a unique studdable tread that’s designed to accept #13 metal studs. Allowing you to carve through ice and rip through deep snow for predictable handling in even the worst of storms.

While many of the Grabber A/T 2 On/Off Road All-Terrain tires meet industry severe snow service standards and are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol, some do not.

So depending on the weather conditions in your area, you need to be careful what size tire you pick.

For durability and stability, the Grabber A/T 2 has an internal structure that uses twin steel belts on top of a two-ply polyester cord, with some sizes reinforced with nylon. And the sidewalls are nice and solid so they won’t bubble under a heavy load.

However, if you do a lot of rock crawling, you might want to look at a heavier, more durable tire.

In mud, the Grabber A/T 2 does well for an A/T tire until the mud becomes deep and thick. The tread voids quickly clog up and traction is greatly reduced. So if you encounter deep mud on a regular basis, you’d be better off choosing a dedicated mud tire with better self-cleaning ability.

But they clear their way through light mud and sand without any issues.

On the pavement in wet or dry weather, they carry themselves with the utmost dignity.

They don’t hydroplane in the rain and cut through standing water effortlessly. But you should exercise a bit of caution braking and cornering at high-speeds as they have a habit of breaking loose slightly, but never really give away control.

The only complaint about their on-road manners is they can sing a little bit at speeds of over 50mph on the highway, but beside that they’re surprisingly comfortable for an A/T tire.

When it comes to tread life, you will be amazed at how long these tires last. If you’re looking for an all-terrain tire at this price, you can’t beat General Tires Grabber A/T 2.

What other aggressive tire will get you over 70,000 miles?

General even back this model with a 60,000 mile tread guarantee.

Recommended to the avid outdoorsman who wants a cheaper alternative to tires like the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A K02, without sacrificing quality and performance.
