    Hey just wanted to know if anyone has a pair of the general grabber red labels in the snow and ice. Want to get a pair cause they look sweet but if they suck in the snow then not so good for where I drive. Just for background I'm running bfg at ko's right now. Any comments would be great

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    I've heard they do decent from the reviews, but based on the tread design(and large, solid tread blocks) I doubt they do very good on hard pack snow/ice. The reviews are probably from an offroad/powder snow standpoint.

    I'm guessing they're craptastic in the snow.

    They are duplicate street legal versions of DESERT RACING TIRES... somehow don't think snow and ice plays into their design...

    Hankook Dynapro ATm's sure felt good in the little snow driving I did with them... but sounds like you want to buy a more expensive tire?
