Desert1500 is on a distinguished road
Default General Grabber 35/1250R17

Hello all,

I've trolled these forums for a few months now but have never posted. It's time for new rubber and I am really attracted to the General Grabber (red letter sidewall) tires. I wanted to ask those of the community that currently roll these what their thoughts are? How is the ride comfort on the highway, noise level, tread wear, and overall ruggedness of the tire? I live in southern California in the barren Mojave Desert so my driving consists of everything except snow! Thank you for your time to read and I look forward to any comments/feedback you all may have.

I don't have any personal experience with these tires but I recently read an article in a 4x4 mag that tested them and gave them high marks.

I had the UHP Grabbers on my 03 and they were a great tire, Good mileage out of them and good price. I was supper happy with them.

I have heard great things about them as well. I was hoping they made them bigger then 35" so I can get a set for my truck. I think trying them out wuld be a safe bet

Get the trails bro.....absolutely a fantastic tire granted there spendy but its screams look at me when there rolling down the road.....good website for tires is tirepackage.com usually they ship very cheap and the tire prices are awesome.....so basically i use that site to get the price i like then take it to sears who price matches all tires if they carry them

Ive had them on mine for about 6 months now. If you 80% dirt 20% road youll be fine but for daily driver they suck. 110 lbs each even with 4:56 gears they make my truck feel under powered. They are a high load range tire so the ride is stiffer. Look at geolanders great tire my buddies chevy has them i wish i went with those or hankook dynapro a/ts. But offroad they are nice wrecked my bedside pretty nice too haha
