General Grabber AT2's-- who has 'em?

Almost ready to pull the trigger on a set of 305-70-16 General Grabber AT2's for the wife's Excursion... any body have them? How long have they lasted? Like them? Hate them?

Any input?

I posted this same question in the Excursion forum also, the one reply I got there so far said they didn't last long...

Wear/mileage input is what would intrest me the most, relivent in so far as it is to our trucks, and if the larger size (305's) have lasted longer than a skinnier stock 265 would... my hopes are that the wider tire will last longer than the same tire in the narrower width. And as heavy as our trucks are, I want the longest lasting tire we can get.

Had them on my 2000 f250 super-duty. And they were stock size.
27,000 kilometers. and they were super bald. And they performed okay when they were brand new, but sucked completely as they wore down.
I would not buy them again.

I've heard lots of people recomend BFG's, but the cost is high... I bit the bullet and put a set on my dually a few years ago, and (in the stock dually size 235's) they were worn out at 17K miles... maybe the wider ones on the Excursion would last longer, but hearing what I have, I'm leaning towards the extra cash for a mileage warrentee'd tire.

You might look at Cooper AT3's

I've got ATRs (the older version of AT3) and they're wearing pretty slow. And the AT3 (at least in 285 is an E range tire...whereas my ATRs are D range)

2001 F250, 7.3, Automatic, 4x4, 33's, Leveled, Cobra 29 CB Radio, Dual Firestick Whips, Pioneer Head Unit, Riffraff 6637 Intake Kit, 4" turbo-back straight pipe, Dual Alternator Upper Radiator Hose, AutoMeter Boost, Pyro, Trans Temp, Delta Toolbox, Gooseneck Hitch and a heavy right footed driver...

Wishlist: 160cc single shots, GT38r, BTS, SRP 1.1

REAL TRUCKS DON'T NEED SPARKPLUGS!!

Lord, please take care of this drivin' fool...

Bought these for my dad to use on a Toyota Sequoia. 2 years later, about 40k miles, they still look good and function well. No clue how the extra weight will affect them though. Sequoia is about 5090 lbs.

I had BFGs (stock size ) on my old 6.0 4X4 and they were a great tire but did not last very long. I currently have the Falkin Wild Peak AT and absolutely love them. I plan on getting another set when they wear out. They are very reasonably priced too. Check them out!
