General Grabber HTS FTMFW!!!!

Check out the reviews on tirerack... It's the top rated tire at like 99%!!!! And it's only $120ish.

Night and day difference coming from the factory Goodyears. Night and day.

Re: need 4 new tires

I put Cooper Discoverer M/S back on mine. They are true rated snow tires. They ride smooth and quiet. Paid $600.00 for everything. They pull better than any other tire I have ever had on snow and ice.

so this is a bad price for them? most of my local places do not have online pricing, this is the only one i found and i am not buying tires from sams club again.

The Generals that you have listed there are the UHP's (not the HTS's). Not sure about those, but I think a member here said they were great. Maybe want to search around.

Re: need 4 new tires

I would go with the Yokohama Parada spec x. Seems to be a good street tire that claims to ahve good snow traction.

best bet is go to www.tirerack.com and search your jeep and tire size and read the ratings and reviews.

Re: need 4 new tires

I've heard the bridgestone dueler a/t revo's are the way to go. They got great reviews. Buy them online & have you're local shop install. About $165.00/each. Looking into them myself.

Re: need 4 new tires

I fitted 4 x General Grabber AT2's and they work brilliantly on the road, being very quiet and refined for a tyre with such an aggresive tread

Consider them a perfect choice for my WK and handled the recent snow very well
