If you are looking for an aggressive all terrain tire that looks good, lasts a long time, and has a great price then the General Grabber AT2 is for you. I recommend these tires to my customers all of the time if they want a tire that is rugged and quiet, but also tough enough to get them through the rough stuff Blacksburg can throw at them.

The General Grabber AT2 may be on the way out as a replacement seems to be looming in the distance but as of right now you can still get your hands on one of the biggest-bang-for-your-buck AT tires on the market. The Grabber AT2 Is a tough aggressive All Terrain tire built for most trucks and SUV’s on the market today. It has developed quite the cult following on the off road and Jeep forums just for its sheer value proposition. In fact, the fold over at Expedition Overland used this tire exclusively on two separate trips. One trip to Alaska and the Yukon Territory and one to the Panama Canal through some of the roughest terrain out there. They only suffered one or maybe two tire casualties on both trips.

Some key technology components include:

  • a square tread center for optimized surface contact
  • an advanced cut and chip compound protecting the tire from permanent damage like chunking
  • an optimized 5 row tread pattern for aggressive biting traction
  • large voids and self-cleaning tread
  • tapered lugs and extra deep traction ridges to pull you through the toughest terrain
  • no see through tread for more biting edges and to trap sound to keep your ride quiet

All that, and the General Grabber AT2 is snowflake approved to meet the severe snow requirements set forth by the Rubber Manufacturerrs Association. (Tires designed for use in severe snow conditions generally have tread patterns, structure and materials to give superior performance.)

The General Grabber AT2 is durable and versatile and comes with a 60,000 mile tread life warranty and 30 day customer satisfaction guarantee.

Want to get some AT2s on your truck or SUV before they're gone? Or maybe you don't need the rugged capabilities, and are looking for a quiet all season highway tire for your truck, SUV or crossover.
