General Grabber HTS 60 Impresses

How do you improve upon a tire that already had so much going for it in dry, wet and wintry conditions?

The General Grabber HTS was, for many years, one of the best performers in the Highway All-Season category, offering impressive ride quality, road manners and excellent wet traction. As time went by, however, the competition stepped up their game to catch up to the tire's popularity and it began to slowly decline in our tire ratings. Although, after more them 20 million miles reported, it holds an impressive eighth place out of a possible 36 tires.

Enter the new General Grabber HTS 60. Featuring a robust cut- and chip-resistant compound that improves treadlife in rugged service conditions, it combines style, comfort, durability and performance. This compound is molded into size-specific, vehicle-application-tuned tread patterns that showcases zig-zag siping patterns that provide the biting edges needed to propel the tires through light snow and on ice. The recent tests performed by us at a dedicated winter testing facility in Sweden showed the General Grabber HTS 60 had very good traction and braking capabilities in snow and on ice when compared to another perennial favorites like the Firestone Destination LE 2. And while braking and acceleration capabilities can't match that of dedicated winter tires, a combination of composed road manners and superior wet and winter performance make it very attractive to those drivers who live immediately south of the snow belt.

The General Grabber HTS 60 is currently available in sizes ranging from 15" to 22".
