The Grabber A/TX is General’s On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tire developed for the drivers of pickup trucks, work vans and full-size SUVs who need confident traction in a variety of conditions, whether that is on pavement, in dirt, wet conditions and even light snow. The Grabber A/TX is designed to blend rugged durability and on-road civility, in addition to providing light snow traction that meets the tire industry’s severe snow service requirements and earns the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.
A tough, cut- and chip-resistant compound is molded into the all-terrain tread pattern of the Grabber A/TX. General’s Comfort Balance Technology utilizes an absorption layer under the tread and acoustic tread pattern to enhance ride and sound comfort, and the wide footprint and optimized pattern stiffness help evenly distribute pressure for even wear and long life. Stone bumpers between the alternating shoulder blocks help eject rocks and debris to prevent drilling, and Sidewall Protection Lugs are designed to protect from sidewall punctures. Deep starting tread depths and multi-angle tread blocks aid traction in loose terrain, while traction notches and sipes create additional biting edges for grip in dirt, wet conditions and snow. Grabber A/TX tires are designed to accept optional metal studs to enhance traction on ice and packed snow.
The internal construction of the Grabber A/TX utilizes General’s DuraGen Technology, with ultra-high-strength steel belts, a robust, two-ply polyester casing to balance toughness and ride comfort and two polyamide reinforcement plies that aid durability and provide high-speed capability.
Note: While non-winter tires featuring the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol provide additional longitudinal snow traction beyond what all-season (M+S) tires not bearing the symbol can deliver, they do not match the capability of a true winter tire in all adverse weather conditions.
