General Grabber

Thinking of getting a set but would like some options and experience with them?

I've been running Grabber AT/2s for over a year (30x9.5) and they've been great on the road. I can't vouch for them with anything off road, but they're the best I've run otherwise in any weather. They still look new, but I don't put many miles on my Jeep (company van for work).

I haven't run them on my '12 COD, but I have run them on my '06 H3. Excellent treadwear, great handling on road, not much experience off road. Great value for the cost. But they are really heavy tires and you might see a slight decrease in gas mileage. (I am running 305/75/16 - 33's).

Id assume you mean the red letter? Great tire for off roading, but it feels like youre going to die when the roads get slick and wet. very minimal sipes and big bulky tread blocks arent something you want to mess around with on a daily driver.

The AT2 is a phenomenal tire, especially for the money. theyll go toe to toe with tith the BFG all terrain which is what its designed to replicate.

Both are good tires, just keep in mind that the red letters are no where close to ideal for on road use. best of luck

The AT2's are awesome all around. I have a set on my YJ and have driven on them year round, on and off road without issue. My buddy has a set that have 60K miles on them and still have tread left.

I have the red letters in 33 12.50 15. Their decent on the road, in the rain there are definitely better choices. In the dirt and trails they kick arse

I have the General Grabbers (Red Letter) tires for about a year now they are a great tire. Great handling on road and offroad, sand, mud, and loose dirt. They will go through it all and not leave you hanging. You do need to rotate and balance every 3,000 to keep up good tread life.

Wet roads I have had no issue. The tires have a soft compound and they do wear some what fast when driven on pavement. Also the tires are very, very heavy 58 lbs for the 31x10.50 15inch. They are not cheap about $200 for the 31's.

I have 3.07 gears and the Jeep is very slow with these heavy tires. I'm looking for lighter mud tires for the next set. Maybe the Dunlop Mud tires. Great tires all around!!

Ran 31" grabber at2s for a little over a year. They rode good, and wore real even. Can't really say anything about them off-road though. Seemed to work good in the snow.

How do the Grabber AT2 (Not Red) handle in the snow. Also how many inches of snow have you drove in?

They have worked well for me in rain, snow, dry roads and sand on my 4.0 cherokee with 4.5 lift. When I upgrade my 2014 wranglers wheels, at2's will be going on. I got through over 24" of snow in my cherokee.

Using AT2s on a '96 Tacoma and '04 Rubi. They are very quiet on the road for an all terrain tire, stay round and balanced, and wear well. I have a 75 yd long gravel driveway and they are self cleaning. I'll find out this winter if they're as good in the snow as everyone says.
