When General releases a new all-terrain tire, on- and off-road enthusiasts in the know take note. General Tire has been renowned for high quality and capable all-terrain tires for decades.

Their latest all-terrain tire, the Grabber A/TX, looks like another can’t-miss proposition. Here are the top five reasons why:

1. The Grabber A/TX is a hybrid of two proven General tires.

The Grabber A/TX combines some of the best elements of the Grabber AT2 (all-terrain) and Grabber X3 (mud-terrain) to create one “uber” all-terrain tire.

Grabber A/TX borrows the tread pattern and characteristics from the Grabber AT2, and the off-road focused, durable sidewall from the more extreme Grabber X3. The Grabber A/TX therefore benefits from a road-friendly tire tread pattern, with a boost in sidewall durability and grip from the X3’s shoulder lugs.

The A/TX includes the Grabber X3’s 3-ply sidewall construction, which creates an additional level of puncture protection. The strong sidewall also allows for airing down, and running low psi in off-road conditions where it’s beneficial to do it.

2. Comfort features & long tread life.

This tire features Comfort Balance Technology, a “tread cushioning system with an acoustic tread pattern that provides a more comfortable, quiet ride on the road,” according to GeneralTire.com.

General’s Stabiltread Technology leverages a larger tread footprint (contact patch) and tread stiffness to encourage even wear and long tread life.

Tread life warranty is strong – 6 years and 60,000 miles for metric sizes, 6 years and 50,000 miles for LT and flotation sizes.

3. Meets the objective traction standard for severe snow service (the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol).

The tire was designed with all-weather, four season use in mind. It meets the highest test standard for snow traction set by the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association and Rubber Association of Canada. (Look for the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol on the tire sidewall.)

"The design provides confidence to the consumer, who requires a year-round solution for all weather conditions." - GeneralTire.com

Not only that, the Grabber A/TX is a uniquely studdable all-terrain tire, which significantly benefits traction on iced and slick winter roadways. (Note: Studs are not legal in all states and locations.)

4. Available in 38 sizes ranging from 14-20".

Standard and flotation tire sizes are available. Many sizes are E (10-ply) rated, allowing for substantial hauling and towing capacity.

5. Proven tire pedigree.

They say that past performance is no guarantee of future success, but when it comes to tires, reliance upon tried-and-true technology is never a bad approach.

The General Grabber AT2 is one of our most popular all-terrain tires, and proven in demanding on- and off-road conditions by users over hundreds of thousands of miles.

User feedback on the Grabber A/TX is all positive so far.
