General Tire Grabber

Brand: General Tire
Tire: Grabber
Category: Off-Road Maximum Traction
UTQG (treadwear): None

This is the original tire from the Grabber family and it is built for the sole purpose of providing great off-road traction.  That isn't to say that you can't use this tire on the pavement, but that really is not where it shines. The Grabber features General Tire's Duragen tire compound that has been molded into the tread pattern. It utilizes Strake grooves that go from one shoulder to the other, along with chamfered lug corners to create pockets of traction, and all this does wonders to help this tire deal with dirt and mud. It also employs Acoustic Modulation Sound Technology to help reduce road noise while on pavement. This tire is rated for mud and snow, and actually performs very similar to a snow tire with the ability to go through deep snow and icy conditions.

Most drivers report that you can get around 60,000 miles out of a set of these tires, and I think that is pretty good considering the great traction you get out of them. Also, you'll likely find that the noise levels are lower than other competing tires in this performance category. Though towards the end of their life, they will get more noisy (happens with most tires anyway). I've also heard numerous reports that these tires have better stability and a very stiff sidewall compared to other tires, which means that when you're towing a trailer, that you won't be swaying on you the whole time and feel like you're on a boat.
