General Grabber AT

anyone have experience with these. Was considering these or Toyos. Saw mixed reviews on the general tires. Some say great, others said the wore out really quickly.

looking at either a 35x12.5 20 or a 295/65 20

I have some info and historical below. I posted everything below about a month ago. My Nittos were finally junk. So I just went with a set of 35x12.5R20 General Grabber ATs. Only have about 500 miles on them so the only feedback I can give is ride and bite. They have WAY better wet and snow traction than any of my nittos. Also, Food for thought.... Nitto and Toyo are the same rubber company. Many dont know that.

2006 F 350 - Nitto Terra Grappler AT 19,000 miles 0-1/32nd
2006 F 350 - Nitto Trail Grapplers 23,000 miles 2-3/32nd
2004 F 250 - Cooper Discovery AT - 76,000 miles 0/32nd Ready to pop haha
2003 F 350 - General Grabber AT - 61,000 miles 1-2/32nd (this truck ALWAYS has at least 2500 lbs on it as stationary equipment).

My "play/work" truck the 06 needs new tires. So I went with the 35x12.25R20 General Grabber ATs this week. Mounted they are about the same size as the Nitto Trails in 35x12s. They measured only about 1/8" wider and came in exactly at 35" high. Where my Trails were 36" high when new.

We have a lot of towing coming up this winter so I suspect miles will be racked up quick so I will keep documenting and providing feedback. So far these tires make no noise as they shouldnt. Feel a lot more sturdy than the nittos with a 7500 trailer attached (no wobble like both sets of nittos)

I miss the aggressive sexy look of the nittos but hope mileage makes that up!~

Are you saying you got 61k out of a set of general grabbers?

I have a set of general grabbers on my '99, for winter / slick or icy roads they have been excellent, however I drive a lot of gravel roads, probably over 50% of my miles, and I don't think they lasted as long as the cooper s/t I had on it before that. but during some winter storms they were definitey why I got home.

I buy the grabbers for the winter traction. They will wear fast if you do not maintain tire rotations/air pressure but in my experience a 8K truck with tons of torque will consume ANY tire at a faster rate than the same tires installed on a car or s10. Expensive tires are part of the beast that is owning a large truck. This is one of the reasons I drive a car everyday and save the truck and its fuel/maintenance costs for weekend driving and towing toys, camper, wood, chevys, ect... I would expect 30-40K out of a set with average driving/towing.
