General Grabber MT question...

Couldn't find any info on the search so I hope I can get some help here from anyone that's got these. I have a almost new (only 3000 kilometers on them!) set of 31" Bridgestone Dueler MT's but after starting the YJ swap and going SPOA plus a 2 inch body lift, I think the 31's will be WAY too small. Now, I want 33's and saw the Grabber's. They are pretty cheap and look cool but how do they perform? I obviously want tires that perform well off-road but I also drive this Zuk A LOT on road and need that on-road performance too. Thanks for the help!

Cheers,
Steve

Re: General Grabber MT question...

Steve,

I have a set of the General MT Grabbers and I love 'em. They're reasonable on the road and bopping around town, not excessively noisy. Some people though have told me to get rid of them and go for their favorite brand but I'm content.

It should also be noted though that this is the only "agressive" tire I've owned, before this it was all LT's .

Brandy says that she appreciates a good agressive tire.

Re: General Grabber MT question...

How much $$ per tire did you get them for?

Re: General Grabber MT question...

I must say I've never owned a set and never heard of them used on a Zuk, but I do know people who have ran them on various full sizes and everyone liked them. Some were full on mud machines, other were street posers, but none of them had any real problems. If they made them in more 16" sizes I would consider them for my future Ram.[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: General Grabber MT question...

I run 31" Grabber MT's on my Zuki. I have had them on the Sami for about 3 years now, they look like there has been little to no wear. I also drive my Zuki on the hughway quite a bit, In opinion they work really well on and off road.
These are my second set of Grabber MT's, I ran a set of 33 MT's on a CJ7 before got my Sami.
They price was $20 less per tire than BFG's. That's a hundred bucks if you are going to buy a matching spare. I have run BFG's before, they seam to wear quickly and unless you rotate them with every oil change they tend to cup.
I wasn't happy with the BFG's.
The Grabber MT's are very quiet for a mud tire on the road, the thread cleans out real in mud, flexs nice with low tire pressure on the rocks. Buy a set, you'll like them.

Re: General Grabber MT question...

Thanks guys. After seeing how the rig looks after the YJ lift and body lift, I definitely need 33's. And I will be going with the Grabbers b/c of their price.

Cheers!
