Tire question

Currently running Goodyear wrangler mtr 235/85R16 tires and I am looking to get new tires. I am looking at the General Grabber AT2 and was wondering if anyone has run these tires before. Any pros/cons? Thanks

They were the only tires I had on my 110 so I have nothing to compare them to but I liked them. Felt they were a good all around tire on every surface I had them on.

I was considering them for my Disco 1. It was in the running with Dunlop, Hankook, and Falken. I went with the Hankook. But when I'm ready for tires again, General will be in the running again unless their prices go sky high also.

I think the Grabber AT2 is a very good tire for pavement and light trail driving. Haven't used them on the Defender, but running them on the P38s. Have gotten 70,000 miles out of the first set with minimal road noise and no durability issues. They handle well with the biggest weak spot being their iffy snow performance.

Ditto. Great looking aggressive tire too. And minimal road noise. Didn't get the chance to off-road them as I sold the truck. But will purchase again.
