Nobody really knows, but we do know it's coming. Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

Great tire so far with less than 500 miles. Tested in snow, rain and dry weather so far very impressive. Don't know if its me or the tire but sidewalls seem a little soft when cornering.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

One of the very best sets of tires I have Ever owned. I have 60,000 on them now and can probably go to 70,000 to 75,000 and they have been quiet since day one. I have recommended these tires to others and they also love them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I purchased the LT or Load Range E tires and I am very pleased with the added traction. The General's do great in mud and dirt and exceptionally well on the pavement. These tires do have a fair amount of noise on the highways and freeways, and are very responsive on pavement or dirt. I would definitely recommend these tires for anyone with a SUV/Truck and an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I live in Mass, and we have some crazy weather throughout the year, especially during the winter months. I got these tires late Jan. 2016 and have more than 8,000 miles on them so far. Pretty much all of driving is during the week and on the highway. They are great in the snow from a few inches to over a foot, no problem in the rain either. There is a trail...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Extremely happy with these tires. 50,000 miles so far, and just starting to notice a little bit of highway howl at 70mph. They have at least another 10,000 miles of tread left, I'll replace them with another set just before next winter. These tires have been great on the highway and great in the snow, on and off-road. Highly recommended for the value.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I took a chance on these tires based on a former Goodyear store managers suggestion. I never had good experiences with Goodyear tires ins the past when I offed them to my customers. That being said this is a decent tire. A bit expensive but I was pleased with everything except the sand traction and the tread wear. I got completely buried in sand that I had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Initially this tire was great! After first rotation @ 5000 miles, the tires began a balancing issue. Found out two of my four are out of round and it takes a bunch of weight to balance them. This will never get any better on this set. It is a great tire in light snow and ice conditions if driven properly. I would use this tire in the future on a serparate...  Read More

Best tires I've had, Aggressive driving. I wore them out in 8000 miles doing burnouts and autocrossing the truck. I have an LS3 Corvette V8 in my single cab pickup. When the tires were new, they made ZERO road noise and rode smoothly. I took them through 8 of slushy snow and they performed. I took them through severly soft sand in a well traveled river bed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Best tire on my truck yet. Value is outstanding. Worst weather of year in snow I had traction driving around everyone. Ice is ice you have to crawl to be safe. I was parked camping in 6-7 inches of snow on a grade and never moved truck until after the storm and drove out of parked off road on dirt & grass underneath area; awesome. Excellent tread left.
