Follow-Up Review: 10,500 miles on tires
April 19, 2011
Not long after I submitted this I re-checked the tire depth and there was a little less than 3/32 wear. Not sure why the tires wore like iron for the first 7500 then dropped considerably for the next 3000. Anyway, I am only expecting 40-45K miles. which is well below the warranty of 60k. I keep the tires inflated properly, even using hydrogen which is suppose to decrease tire wear. Dont sure about that claim. Although, I still believe it is a very good tire, it may not be the bargain I first thought.
Initial Review: 10,000 miles on tires
April 05, 2011

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.
