    I just got them, getting them mounted tomorrow. I did alot of researching and really couldn't find anybody that had anything negative to say about them other than some sizez. The one magazine rated them best bang for the buck.

    Try searching General Grabber and you will see posts by others including me... some with photos on their Toys. The stock size for our trucks without a lift (265/75-16) is still not available yet... from what we have heard. Guys with lifts are getting the next bigger size.
    They look great and have been rated high for desert use so I would like to try them... but not until the price comes down! $220/ tire is too steep for me.

    I just purchased them for $159.38 about a week ago for the 285/75/16. They were like 770.00 shippped.

    Well the tires are on. I can't tell you how well they wear, but they ride very nice. Guys who installed them didn't have to use much weight to balance them either.

    They are a heavy duty desert tire, so they are heavier with more plys. Might hurt your mpg's if your truck is a DD but they do look very very nice!

    I'm looking at these as well. I'm not sure you guys are all talking about the same tires. General has two different grabbers. The less expensive AT (one I'm looking at) and the more expensive offroad tire. That is the one guys are running in the desert. Not sure, just trying to read between the lines in everyone's responses.

    Fail>... NOT! The 'Grabber' (Red Letter) what is being discussed, is not the Grabber AT/2.

    Yah, I saw the AT2s yesterday on a truck... look like All Terrain TAs... I am leaning to the Hankook DynoPro ATM RF10 if the price of the Generals doesn't come down... Everyone likes the DynoPros... and they are 'cheap', too!

    It would be sweet to have these Baja 1000 proven-looking tires from General, however!

    No, you can't... not street legal anyway... the profession Baja race tire from BFG is called the Baja TA... it doesn't look anything like the All Terrain or Mud Terrain TAs... It is not sold to the public.

    The Grabber from General is an identicle looking tread tire to the professional Baja racing tire... and it is street legal DOT approved.
