The Grabber HTS 60 is General Tire’s Highway All-Season light truck tire developed for the drivers of crossover and sport utility vehicles, as well as pickup trucks and full-size vans. Designed to combine style, comfort, durability and performance, Grabber HTS 60 tires blend pleasant road manners, a long life and year-round all-season traction, even in light snow.
General Grabber HTS 60Grabber HTS 60 tires feature a robust cut- and chip-resistant compound that improves treadlife in rugged service conditions. This compound is molded into size-specific, vehicle-application-tuned tread patterns. Beginning with a design combining a strong continuous center rib flanked by independent intermediate tread blocks, sound barrier ribs and notched shoulders, lighter-duty sizes have a higher sipe density to enhance wet road and wintertime grip while heavier-duty sizes are optimized to further enhance stability under heavy load conditions.
The tire’s internal structure begins with a cushioned absorption layer of rubber under the tread to help isolate the vehicle from road disturbances for a more comfortable ride. The Grabber HTS 60 tire’s wide, flat footprint is supported by ultra-high-strength steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon to deliver exceptional penetration resistance and even footprint pressure for excellent braking and confident stability under all approved load conditions.
Founder at Tiresout. Used to be working as an engineer at Bridgestone Tires Akron Technical Center. The responsibilities included but were not limited to technical computing, indoor & outdoor testing of new tires.
Tires very rough and stiff. Feels like 100 psi.
I just replaced my General Grabbers with another set. I got 46,000 miles out of them, and there was some treadlife left. I tow, and the tires were slipping on wet boat ramps, and I was starting to feel come hydroplaning on highways in heavy rain. Great value, great tread. Quite on the road. Very good value in an all purpose tire.Paid under $800 installed.
Have always been a die hard Michelin man! My Michelin M/S tire on my Tundra were getting worn but I couldn’t afford to replace my Michelins’ at $205 a tire, so I researched other tires that were less expensive. I decided on the General Grabber HTS60 for $145 being that they were rated very close to the Michelin. As I was driving off for the first time; in the parking lot I could already feel the steering was so much smother, on the road it was like I was driving a new truck, smooth and quietet even on the freeway. I have driven on dry, wet and even pulling a boat out of the water with no problems with traction. If these tire last me I will now be a die hard General man.
Tires are on a 2012 Toyota 4 runner, have 65000 miles on them and will probably be due for replacement at about 80000. Have driven in snow (4×4) deep enough to be pushing it with bumper also aired down on beach surf fishing and off road (dirt,rock and mud). Couldn’t ask for much more from these tires and a pretty good value to boot. Would recommend and buy again. Most driving is on highway and local roads and performance there has been completely satisfactory as well.
The tread on these is wearing out fast at 26,000 miles on them. I may get another 5,000 miles but don’t know because this is the car my wife drives most with the kids so I need to replace because I am scared they may hydroplane and wreck! I hope the tire place will give me a good deal on new ones with the tread life warranty. I hate the bad review because I see a lot of good reviews but this is my experience with them.
I HAVE ONLY HAD THREE SET OF TIRES ON THIS SUV INCLUDING THE ORIGINAL SET. THIS SET IS BY FAR THE BEST OF THE THREE. THE FIRST SET WERE GOODYEARS, THE SECOND WERE BFG,S. I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE PLEASED WITH THE GENERALS AND I AM ABOUT TO BUY ANOTHER SET. THANKS!
