Well finally bit the bullet on getting the General Grabber's, local discount tire managed to get the 35x12.5r18 for a cheap $1600 installed. Was hesitant since they haven't been out long to get a real good review on treadwear or performance, but o'well, tis the season to self-gift. So far today only have about 150 miles on them, but they are smooth and not loud like my pro comps were, and they look super sweet on the XD rims. We'll see how well they do with the gooseneck on the back next weekend going to Laughlin.

Devine, how are those Grabbers treating you so far?
Any updates for rain or snow conditions?
How about for towning?
My beast is getting ready to grow up in a few weeks and I would like to get one last opinion on the Grabbers before I purchase them?

Thanks,

Offroadsd- I really like the grabbers. I've got 15,000 miles on them so far and they are wearing slowly and evenly. Last month I put about 4000 miles on them on a trip back east pulling my goose weighing at about 18000lbs total and they handled it no problem. My buddy has them on his 3/4 dodge and he hasn't had a problem with them either. The thing that impressed me most is out here in AZ I tend to find myself on some rocky roads in the mountains, the grabbers have way better traction then my old pro comps in the mud and the dry, they clean out really quick and I have yet to "chunk out" a piece of the tire yet, not even the littlest piece has come off.

Overall they are great. Road noise isnt bad at all, my pro comp extrem all terrains were worse. They work great for occasional heavy towing. The ride is smooth, no shakes or wobbles. They look good on the superdutys. I haven't had them in the snow yet, in the rain there is no lack of confidence in them. I had them out in the sand dunes of southern California too and there was no issue there either. As far as price, I picked them up for less then what I paid for the pro comps and less then what my buddy paid for his nitro mud grapplers in the same size. I like them better then any other tire I've put on my superduty enough that we're putting them on my girlfriends SD and both of our class 3 desert trucks. On a side note I talked to a class 8 full-size truck team down at the baja 1000 last year about them, granted they are running a race compound, but they said that in the past 2 years they ran the grabbers they completed the baja 1000 on the same tires they started with never had a blowout or one come apart in the boulder fields. The decision is yours, but personally I would stand behind the grabber over any BFG, Nitto, ProComp or Cooper tire.


Jocww- all I have is an add a leaf leveling kit on my front leaf pack. Picked it up on eBay for around $130. Had to trim the inner fender liner on the back side a little to clear the 35" tires but they don't rub or hit anywhere even when the axles are flexed in a ditch or what have it.

Those look Sweet!
FYI, there used to be a saying for General Tires back in the day it went something like this, "Sooner or later, your gonna buy Generals!" Lol, I love my generals. There quiet, offer a comfortable ride, have tread pattern that looks wicked cool and are super easy to keep clean.
Sweet lookin' Truck with those tires man!:nod::thumb:

I had a set on the Silverado I owned before my SD, AWESOME tires, not one complaint at all, go anywhere, go over anything, through anything and they hold up awesome in any conditions. Definitely want another set when I get new tires for my SD. On a side note, Continental North America (General Tire) is awesome with their warranty claims, had a set of some regular Generals on a buddys car and one went bad, they had it replaced free of charge in 2 days.

I love how they bite too. On pavement it sounded like they were sticking to it. Only dislike was they would throw mud up and over the cab... 6" lift, 35x12.50/20. But that didn't bother me until I washed it haha
