31'' General Grabber Tires

Are these decent tires and is $600 for all four installed a decent price?

if your talking bout the AT2's than yeah from what I heard there pretty good. I would say $600 mounted and balanced is a good price...

Look into the Falken High Country A/T's, and the Wild Peak A/T's!! I have done a lot of research on tires lately because I'm getting new ones on all 4 corners!! In terms of pricing...I was always going back to the Falkens!! My top 2 tires right now are, The Falkens, or the General Grabber AT2's!! Good Luck!! If you need any more help, based on my research just Holler Back!!

Matt

Been running a set of the Grabber AT2's 31 x 10.50 on my XJ since April. They are great! Wearing like iron so far (I probably have 15k+ on them already)
They are quiet on road, did great offroad, and handle snow better than BFG ATs. They have a 60k treadwear warranty.
I'll definitely buy another set.
Think I paid $135 ea (installed) for mine.

Mine came with 30" Grabber AT2's on them, we've had our share of snow and ice here in CO, and they've done really well with about 6/32 left on them. I've been pricing them and $600 sounds about right.

Not a bad deal and they're pretty nice tires...

i'm with Buck though...i keep goin back to Falken's. The ones i'm specifically lookin at are these

Tire Details - Discount Tire

I'll be picking up a set of them once i get my lift installed...

...And then there were (2)!!

I gotta say this...The Falken "Rocky Mountain A/T's, and the Good Year Dura-Trac are leading the way!! Should have a final decision by Monday...I hope... Those G.Y. Dura-Tracs are getting great reviews by the way!! Gonna be a tough decision, but whatever it is, I hope it's the right one!! You just never completely know when it comes to tires!!

I like what I've read about the duratecs. When it's time, I think I'm going with 31" Duratecs. They are a bit pricey though, if budget was the primary consideration, I'd go with the Grabbers.

Speaking of going to 31's...I have 30x9.5x15's on it now, but if I go to 31x10.5x15's, do you think I will have a rubbing problem? I wouldn't think it would be a problem generally. Just maybe in tight turns. Really considering the 31's!!

I have been doing my research trying to decide between the Duratrac and the AT2. Both are excellent tires for my type of driving. They are both priced the same with a $5.00 difference in either dirrection. The Duratracs are actually cheaper if you take advantage of the available rebates.

GY Wrangler Authority is a Walmart only option to Duratrack that I have my eye on- at an attractive sub- $150 price point here in Ga. Good looking tire but not a lot of real world feedback. The AT2s seem to be on b/o in 31 10.5 15 around here.

I've read a few google reviews on them and from what i saw they were easily damaged. I was also lookin at these because i thought they were a great looking tire at a good price for a 31. But after reading the reviews, i'm not gonna go with them.

You should check out the Rocky Mountain's i posted (falken) as well as the Goodyear Dura Trac's that Buck mentioned...

Man...Oh...Man!! Decisions!! Still doing the research, and I'm going nuts!! I gotta make sure I get what I want without settling!! The deeper I go into the ratings, and reviews...the more I see the AT2's coming out on top for the "BANG FOR YOUR BUCK" factor!!

They are a good tire, only real issue is they are a PITA to keep balanced, but they oout perform the bfg, and wear pretty similar IMO.

One thing I've noticed with the Goodyear Dura-Trac is that the sides are pretty soft, and tend to roll over some during turns. Not a good thing!!

I can get my At2's installed for around $650.00, which is not bad. I looked at buying them from a Tire Discount Store online, but it seems to be more expensive doing it that way. The numbers just don't add up to a better deal, than just having them ordered, and installed by a local Tire Store!!

What about the General Grabbers with the red lettering? I think that this is a fairly new tire because there are very few reviews on the tire. The latest issue of JP Magazine has a write up on this tire. I might go to Pep Boys for this issue to read up on this tire.

I saw those Red Lettered Tires...they are pretty sweet looking!! My Jeep is Cayenne Pepper Red, so they may match pretty good. Probably the exact tire, but just with the Red Lettering.

This is often the case.... and it's nice to support a local business.

I have had them since last fall and have driven them on the road, in snow/ice and in mud. They seem to do well and I haven't got close to getting stuck yet. The tread design is different for sure but it works. I recommend them.

Nice looking tires! What size are your tires? Has your gas mileage changed with these tires? I read that they are heavy. Thanks for the post.
