Review of the General Grabber AT2 All Terrain Tire
The General Grabber AT2 is General Tire's All-Terrain
tire designed and developed for pickup trucks and sport
utility vehicles that need a tire that will perform well
in all conditions while providing a degree of offroad
traction. General Tire designed the Grabber AT2 to meet
these expectations and does provide exceptional traction
over all-terrains in dry, wet and snowy conditions.
Highlighted features of the General The Grabber AT2
include a chip and tear resistant, highly siped
all-terrain tread compound. It's 5-Row Tread Pattern
is highly siped to provide exceptional traction in it's
class in wet weather conditions as well as in winter
weather driving conditions. The moderately
aggressive computer optimized tread pattern helps the tire
to remain relatively quiet during road and highway
driving. Internally the General Grabber AT2 carcass
structure includes twin steel belts on top of a 2-ply
polyester cord sidewall to combine strength and durability
with a uniform ride. Offroad the General Grabber AT2
performs well for an AT tire in most offroad terrain
conditions. In conditions such as dirt,
gravel, forested trails and sand, the Grabber AT2 finds
decent traction especially when aired down a little,
allowing the tire to conform better around obstacles and
terrains. In mud the General Grabber AT2 does well
for an AT until the mud becomes deep and thick, which then
quickly clogs the tread voids and traction is minimized
however this clogged tread scenario is common with most
All Terrain tires and the Grabber AT2 is about average in
this area when compared to other AT tires. The
Grabber AT2 is designed to do well in snow and as most
users report, it does very well in winter driving
conditions and the outer tread lugs are designed to
accommodate studs for enhanced winter traction. Size
availability is good with many sizes to choose from and
the Grabber AT2 is priced right for may budgets.
