General Grabber AT 2
Initial Review: 57,000 miles on tires
September 24, 2012

Still on my truck. Almost down to 3/32. Forgot a few rotations and rebalances (started wearing them funny more than once), spirited is a euphemism for the way I sometimes beat on my truck (20% of the time, max --odometer just rolled to 267,000 miles) so I hope I don't see they were supposed to last 100k miles or something. Great tire. BEAST. and barely any road noise don't worry about that. Brand new on a fresh rained road I tried to lose the back end on purpose several times jerking the wheel, popping the clutch or both, if it ever lost grip I can't remember. But now with less than 30% of original tread remaining it's a bit easier (much easier), but not unsafe at all. Basically still trying to see how they are at the end of their life so I can decide if I want another set or not. Also of note I peeled out more than 10x but less than 25x, and they were mostly on purpose and quick chirps. Lastly, they've pulled an 18' inboard/outboard boat and a few other trailerables probably about 1000-2000k miles at least. Way over vehicle tongue weight rating and towing capacity I'm pretty sure. Oh and I drove over some curbs and medians (on purpose, probably 20x over 57k miles), and I had too much pressure as well. Tire rated 44psi max, pathfinder door sticker says 26lbs front and back and they were at 35, sometimes higher, and now at 29 for last 5,000 miles. Think I stretched me a little. Put it this way. If you live in any place with snow & u don't want to get stuck, or you want a tire that makes your truck look tougher and drive tougher with tires that can take a little neglect and abuse. It's worth the money. Even tho I think the price went up 25 bucks.
