Default General Grabber AT2 or Duratrac???

Anyone running General Grabber AT2's? How are they? Tread is pretty aggressive looking. Thinking of getting these on an 18" rim 275/70/18. Other option is the Duratrac in a 295/65/18. Both are approx the same diameter as the 20" stockers that I am replacing (33").
Thanks

I have heard that the sidewalls of the generals are so soft that the handling is not that great. I cant speak from experience but i figured i would pass on the information to you to help with your decision.

I am not sure about the general grabber since I have never tried them. I can say I do like the duratrac. I run the 285/60r20's and they have been a great tire. Not much hum for an aggressive tire, good handling probably due to the 10 ply rubber. I have no problems going 90 with them or hauling my little work trailer doing 75. Also the traction is pretty good in the rain and also in some loose dirt and light mud. I will say they aren't as smooth a ride as the cooper zeon ltz's they replaced

When i lifted my previous truck, i debated between the DT's and the General Grabbers. I went with the DT's and was extremely happy with them. As mentioned, very little hum on the road compared to what i was expecting. And they turned the truck into a beast. I had no problems in snow, mud, sand, rain ect.... I was very very pleased and would buy them again in a heartbeat if i am ever in the market for that kind of tire again.

How does the tire's sidewall effect its handling?

If the side wall is soft then there will be more give in the tire causing a very flimsy feeling. If you were to be driving in the sand a lot that wouldn't be a problem but cruising down the highway you don't want all that flex in the side wall. anybody can correct me if I'm wrong that's the information that was given to me when I was doing my research when I was shopping for new tires.
