I've never tried that particular tire before. I've had a couple of sets of General tires and they weren't bad. I prefer the Toyos over most brands.

I think they they look cool as hell, but at my local 4x4 shop they told me that they really suck on the street when its wet. They are like Nitto Dune Grapplers where they are awesome in the sand and suck everywhere else....

we just put hankook dynapro m/ts on our jeep unlimited and i was really surprised on the ride.
for a mud tire they are quiter then my all terrains grip better on road wet or dry and great offroad and have a thick sidewall like bfg's! take a look at those and they are a hell of a lot cheaper

i would not recommend the generals they are ok for a little bit but then they start wearing really bad i would go for the Nitto Terra Grapplers they are a perfect on/off-road tire and fairly cheap

That's the story on any tire. True it will happen a bit more on a more aggressive tire. You really have to keep up on alignment and on rotations. I've had it happen on Terragrapplers (355/65r18 biggest they make in a terra grappler on my old 9" suspension lift). You just have to be on top of them and not be negligent on maintaining them (keeping them balanced and rotated). If you properly maintain them you will squeeze the most you can out of any set of tires.

The new General Grabbers have a 60K mile warranty when bought from 4WheelParts. These are going to be my next set of tires.

Also, all trucks tend to suck on wet roads regardless of tires.
