    UPDATE: called tirerack again and got a different person. His best guess was this size is currently backordered through General Tire and/or they have taken a break from making this specific size. He said that his system is showing he is getting more in stock and there are more shipment coming in the future. They may still become out of stock, let’s say a year from now but they are not going to be discontinued. I ended up buying 4x of these tires and will be receiving them tomorrow

    I have been strongly considering the general grabber ATx tires in a 265/70r16. I will be using my truck (2022 Tacoma trd off road DCSB!) as a daily driver mostly, with light off-roading, and will be towing a 5x10 trailer (firewood) fairly often during the summer. I live in an area where it’s ideal to have studded tires but that is very expensive so I’ve been researching decent all terrain tires that can work year round for me. Roads get icy and I understand a non-studded tire can’t be amazing but some (like the ATx) can give me confidence on the roads. I’m currently in a FWD hatchback and have never had issues on the roads here since on this vehicle I have my summer set and a studded winter set.

    Since I’m 80% settled on this specific tire I’ve been looking at where to buy them. No one has these tires in 265/70r16, except for tirerack. Even General tire’s website doesn’t show they make them. The questions I have are:

    1) What’s going on here?
    2) Does tirerack have bad information?
    3) Did they buyout General tire then this specific size get put on hold?
    4) Did General tire stop making this size? If so I’m kind of fucked if I blow a tire it would seem.

    I’m currently waiting on a response from general tire and if I get information from them I will post an update.


    Thanks

    I bought the general grabber ATXs in a 265/70r16 from Tirerack back in September and I LOVE them! They have been a great tire in every condition on and off road and they have white letters to boot (I like white lettered tires). These are P-rated in this size so they ride really nice and are light weight. Back when I bought them, this size just came out and they were offering a $100 rebate, so I got a good deal too!

    I got a set of the 265/70R16 Grabber's from my local tire guy. His distributor had seven in stock.
    These are the tires I should have gotten all along, but I don't think this exact size was a thing 3 years ago. The Cooper AT3 4S ended up being hot trash for me, and they are so undersized.

    The LT265/75R16 is just too heavy for my daily driver needs.
