General Grabber AT2-- Who has them?

Posted this in the general 7.3 area too...

Getting ready to pull the trigger on some 305/70/16 Grabber AT2's for the wife's Excursion... who has them, who likes them, who hates them, how long did they last?

And any issues with running 305's on the stock rims with the stock suspention on an Ex?

Had them on my leveled 350. Loved them for traction when new but hated them because I wore them out in about 12-15k miles. And that was rotated every 5k and no burnouts.

So they wear out quick... that's too bad, they look like a good tire, quick wear could be why they are priced low. I was quoted $875 for 305/70/16's, all 4, mounted and ballanced, with tax...

Will go back for a quote on the BFG's, and also a quote on some Toyo AT 2's, they have a mileage warrentee, which intrests me as well, but I like the more agressive tread pattern of the BFG's. But your mileage results are awesome. I just don't know if we will get that kind of mileage out of ours, lots of twisty back country roads for us, combined with the weight of the Ex, wears tires quickly.

StrokedX, your sig says you have an '05, answer a question for me if you will... I was under the impression that the Ex went to the coil spring front end in '05 like the trucks did, is that the case, or is it still leaf springs like the '99- '04's, just with the updated front grill/headlights?

The 05's just have the upgraded front end. They still have leafs up front

I haven't bought any tires for the Ex yet, but the wife and I are talking about lifting it, so we are going to wait untill we get our tax return and do the lift, and bigger tires together... however, I have ordered a set of the Grabber AT2's from the local tire shop (they say they will give me a 50K mile warrentee with them) in 315/75/16 and a set of 16x10 wheels (cepec DC2's) to put on my red truck. (wife told me Merry Christmas, order them!) I'll post some pictures when I get them, should be by the end of next week.
