I've toted a few things and use my truck for work and light play. But when I see all that room up front the kid in me says bigger tires.

Nope. Unfortunately. Just a very light coat of flakes on the hood of the truck. I need to show the wife how bad the stock tires are. Lol.

I am in need of new tires. I was thinking I could get away with waiting another 5k miles but that is not in the cards. The next big snow is going to see me spinning my rears all the time.

SO anyone have experience with General Grabber AT2?

https://simpletire.com/general-lt35-...04030000-tires

I believe this is the version that is getting discontinued for a newer model. Those tires are $380 a piece at simple tire with free shipping. I can mount myself at the Auto/Hobby shop on base.

I have a bone stock '11 F350. I am not leveling and from what I read on this thread I should clear no problem.

thoughts?

not a lot of love for general grabber at2s on heavy duty trucks. I gave up on researching becauses its love hate with everything. Stcik with brand names and 90% of the time you're fine. Toyo, Nitto, BFG, Falken, Cooper, dean, Bridgestone, Michelin, Kumho etc...

Ive seen a lot of love for general grabber at2s on gas trucks and subarus just didn't seem to hold up the best under diesel engines etc.

-99 F250, 4X4, 6.0 trans cooler, 08 mirrors, 05 grill, AIS Intake, lvl kit, JW Vbody, cncfab hpop lines, WW2.

04 Excursion Modified, 04 F350 Modified, 06 F350 Modified

Interested in learning something new?

JustinOOO9,

Can't thank you enough. I am mostly going to be riding highway and some dirt/fire roads. Maybe a little Nebraska mud. So I want something that will wear pretty well and not kill gas mileage. I don't need a full on AT or Mud tire.

I am now looking at Kumho Road Venture AT51's and Yokohama Geolanders. Also Toyo AT II's.

Simple Tire has some good sales like 15% off Toyos and Kumhos are discounted. I had both the Kumhos and Yoko's before but on Gassers. So not really a great comparison, but I with the discounts I can get Toyo's in 35's for $1300 and the Kumho's in 35's for $1143. So this weekend I will give the credit card a work out.

Also, always free shipping from Simpletire.com. Best site for tires.

Thanks a ton for you insight!

I had kumhos on the back of my E250 work van and within 10k one of the tires came apart like a retread on big truck. No more kumhos for me.

Hogbody,
Thanks for the tip. I wonder if they don’t do well with extra load? I assume you hauled heavy in the back of your van. Work stuff, I presume? I used to load the hell out of my old cable van. It as an e250 and it always had what looked like 18wheeler tires on it to handle the weight we carried.

Stock van, stock suspension, stock steel wheels, stock hubcaps and stock tire size. Just an E load rated kumho that should have held up. Maybe I got one that was made first thing Monday morning or last thing Friday night. Let me down once and I won't use again. I have toyo at2 on wife's and kid's vehicles and ridge grapplers on mine and never had a problem. Sticking with what works for me.
