Living here in northern Indiana we experience extreme summer and winter conditions. I am the owner of a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Last October I purchased a set of General Grabber HTS Tires for my Cherokee and used them through our harsh Indiana winter. My Original Equipment tires removed were the Goodyear Wrangler SRA. Both sets were outline white letter tires. I have owned two sets of the Wrangler SR-A on past Jeeps but find that the Generals have superior wet and dry traction above the Goodyears even when new.
I had an incident where I underestimated the amount of room i needed for a turn into a subdivision and turned at much too high of speed. The Generals stuck like glue in the loose gravel of the intersection! The ride quality and noise comfort are at a level that gives me confidence in recommending this tire for luxury SUVs and CUVs. Today the tires have 6,000 miles on them.
The General Grabber HTS is a symmetrical tire allowing the tires to be cross switched as well as rotated front to back.
Although this is not a substiute for dedicated winter tires like the Bridgestone Blizzak, Continental 4x4 Winter Contact or the Michelin Lattitude X-Ice, in my opinion it provides adequate levels of winter traction when needed.
I have told countless Tire Rack customers about my experience and the best compliment I can give the tires is to say I would buy them again.
