The Grabber UHP is General Tire’s Street/Sport Truck Summer tire developed for the drivers of high performance pickups, sport activity and sport utility vehicles. The Grabber UHP was designed to emphasize traction, handling and control in dry and wet conditions. However while exceeding minimum industry M+S tread pattern guidelines (and branded as such), we recommend Grabber UHP tires not be driven in wintry conditions exceeding very light snow.
The Grabber UHP molds General Tire’s 2nd generation, ultra high performance silica compound into a directional tread design featuring wide shoulder blocks and a central V-shaped tread area to combine responsive handling with dry road traction. The V-shaped grooves help sweep water away from between the tire’s contact patch and the road surface to reduce the possibility of hydroplaning and improve wet traction. The tire features an optimized contour and internal structure that includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wound jointless nylon on top of polyester body plies to combine responsive handling and cornering stability with high-speed durability.
