I bought and then installed the 215/55/R16 Exclaim UHP tires 2 days before moving from Denver Colorado to Orlando Florida. I drove all the way south with confidence., stability and excellent traction . After 3 years of service, and driving throught the hot highways of Central Florida, I definately will be looking for this brand and tirerack.com for my next purchase. Thanks Tirerack for an excellent recommendation and price.

I wanted to get all-terrain tires before winter as the mud terrains I usually drive on were worn and not very good on snow covered roads, not to mention roads that are just damp. The Generals are fantastic! The ride is comfortable, quiet and the steering is accurate and "grippy". They can be trusted on wet roads as well, no drift or hydroplaning. I spent the winter in deep snow and "plowed" roads and these tires never lost grip. I think I have about 3000 miles on them with no noticeable wear. Looking forward to using these tires off-road and I will definitely buy these tires again.

I have used General tires on other vehicles. Grabber AT2's on my Tundra. The RT43 was recommended for my wife's Jeep Patriot as an all around excellent tire. So far it's been great. We spent the month of February in the north country where we received snow every couple days. Our driveway is rather steep and just for the heck of it I tried to go up in 2wd on packed snow. The tires gripped amazingly well and never slipped once. She typically uses 4wd in snow, but had to try just to see. So far, very happy with this tire.

I have been fortunate enough if you want to call it that to really get a good feel for these tires in snow, ice, freezing rain, rain, gravel, and mud. Light snow is not an issue at all. Deeper snow has little to no effect on these tires. I have been averaging driving in 8in to 13in+ with little to no problems. The only issue was on about 6in of ice the truck sank into. These tires have been great and look like they are wearing very even. Great buy.

I just purchased these tires and installed today. They look awesome! I took it down to the lake right away and went through deep mud, the sandy beach and through the icy brook full of shale rock. Never slipped or slowed even once. Best purchasing experience ever. Felt like Christmas morning coming home to new ultra rims and general grabbers paired and balanced already. With the hardware sent also, installation was a breeze and now my souped up Hemi has some new hiking boots to explore. Thank you tirerack.com!

These tires were terrible on our 06 MDX. Loud and rough, gas mileage dropped noticeably by 2 mpg. Wear was uneven, and no matter how many trips to dealers and shops, always seemed slightly out of balance and alignment slightly off. After 35,000 miles, I replaced them with Michelin Lattitudes. Night and day difference.

So great, I'd just bought my second set. After spending several hours searching reviews for a better set, I decided to go back with the tires I was 100% satisfied with. Very responsive to braking and accelerating. Okay for side stability/cornering... in part due to worn suspension (shocks, bushings and sway bar links) and the high center of gravity for Honda Pilots. Road noise was hardly noticeable compared to the original Goodyear Integrity. Compared to them, tread lasted much longer on the HTS. One advice: do not let their price tag disguise you.

Great traction - wet, ice, and snow. Huge boost in confidence in my truck's ability to handle the elements over OEM tires. While they are very quiet, you can definitely feel the tread when driving over 70 mph on a smooth highway. But, that is to be expected with such an aggressive tread and I personally don't consider it a negative. They handle the torn up roads of Denver very well with less bounce than the OEM tires. I used to lose the back-end if the roads were just slightly wet, while in 4 wheel drive, with the OEM set. With these, in 2 wheel drive, I can corner in the rain instead of pray I don't hit someone or something. Overall, these tires exceed my expectations, they are priced right, look right, and handle great.

These tires came stock on my 2012 Jeep Liberty Latitude. I purchased vehicle new in November 2012 and only have 3100 miles thus far so tires still look new. I don't see why these tires get such bad reviews. I have been very satisfied with the performance of these tires in all weather conditions. Yesterday we got a foot of snow combined with very cold temperatures and after reading all the negative reviews about this tire I was not expecting them to perform as well as they did: I was able to drive out through a foot of snow in 2WD without getting stuck, needing to rock the vehicle or using 4WD, I have the video to prove it but cannot include a link. 2012 Jeep Liberty drives out of foot of snow in 2WD on youtube will let you see for yourself that the reviews stating 4WD was needed in even small snow amounts are exaggerated. My previous vehicle had General Grabber AT2 tires and I wish they came in my size 235-65-17 as the Grabbers are my favorite tire so far. So far I cannot find one reason to replace these tires. If General decides to make the Grabbers in my size I would switch over only because I know how great they are off road but for normal everyday driving in all weather conditions these Wrangler HP's perform very well.

I have now driven the Grabbers through all the eliments. Compared with the OEM tires these are in a different league. There is no weak characteristic. I measured treadwear at 7500 miles and it was about 1/32. At that rate they should go well beyond 80k miles. With low initial cost I can't see any reason to spend the extra money for Michelin or Goodyear. The Grabbers are likley better than the available Goodyears and as good, possibly better, then Michelin. In the past I have always chosen the big brand name tires, I was very reluctant to look at General. Just did not figure it could play with the big boys. Now I am getting ready to buy the wife tires for her mini-van and General is high on my list. Price aside these are hard to beat, take price into consideration and they may be unbeatable.

While Maryland isnt exactly the snowbelt, Im actually from NY, and my girlfriend (its her truck) is from Idaho. Were driving out to her hometown this fall and Ill be staying there probably through November, then driving back East. Since I do heavy construction, and construction sites are often muddy and difficult, combined with the snow in upstate NY, we wanted good AT tires on the truck. So far these are performing excellent, with phenomenal dry traction and good mud traction. I drove ambulances for a living, for fourteen years in NYC, so I have a great appreciation for tires that grip the road. These AT2s are doing a great job so far and I expect them to handle the coming Northern Idaho winter travel with ease.



About the only negative Ive found with these tires, so far, is that my gas mileage dropped quite a bit. I had been getting about 18 mpg highway and I now seem to be getting about 15.5, even with inflation pressures on the hard side. Well see if that changes any as the tires get broken in.

Bought as replacement for my OE Bridgestone 265 tires when they wore out. These tires are great and cost effective. They are quiet, responsive, wear well and track like they are on rails. No unexpected skids or loss of control even when towing a 4500 LB boat to MA from FL several times. Highly recommend them to anyone who needs a "E" road tire and doesn't want to spend a fortune on a set.

Worst tire I have ever owned. Noise level was terrible. Tires Shake when speed goes over 40. I thought I had an alignment problem, but was not the case. I have 32500 on these tires and they are a 2/32. Tires do not perform well in snow or ice, but the performance and tread wear are what really bothered me. Buyer beware of this tire! PS I usually do not write reviews, but this tire needs to change.

This is an update after two seasons of summer to winter driving. These tires are still performing great in the snow and mild ice road conditions. I had confidence driving across HYWY 2 to and from Seattle to Yakama over the Cascade Mountains in zero degree down to -10 weather. The conditions changing from wet ice in Seattle, light snow, to slightly icy roads at night, over the pass, and the vehicle never felt like it was losing traction or sliding in any way. I know it was icy, because leaving Leavenworth Washington, several cars driving slow in-front, spun their tires and slid sidewards before gaining control. I had no traction issues and without using my chains. The weather got so cold I had to add air in the tire because of contraction. The tires had lost 7 to 10 psi. I should have taken up the offer from my Ford Dealer to put nitrogen in the tire for extra cost and it would not have been effected by the cold. Once pumped up to 38-40 psi, they road smooth, quiet and returned 21 highway mpg. The wear on the tires are very even. I have not hit the half way wear markers on the tires with 26,500 miles.
