I have very pleased with these tires. My Element rides well. Tread wear has been excellent. I have 7/32's left. I highly recommend the Grabbers for the Element.
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires
May 09, 2010

I had replaced my OEM Wranglers HP's with Bridegtsone Alenza's when my Element had 28,000 miles on it. While the braking was great on the Alenza's, the ride on local roads was terrible. You could feel every bump on the road. Bridgestone gives a 30 days ride guarantee, which I decided to do. I debated between the General Grabber HTS and the Continental ContiCrossContact LX. I was leaning towards the Continentals until I spoke with an Engineer at Continental. Continental also makes the Generals. He said that the Generals utilized the latest and greatest tire compound that they had. With his comments, Tire Rack's recommendation and Consumer Report's #1 rating, I decided to try the Generals. So far, I am very pleased with the tires and would highly recommend them. The ride is very good and the tires seem to perform well. Hopefully they will last 50,000 to 60,000 miles.
