General Grabber ATX Review

[Music],now if you guys have been around any,type of off-road racing off-roading over,landing,dirt sports or anything else related to,vehicle dirt adventures,then you have definitely seen or heard,of general tires,hey whats up guys josh from trailbuild,and general tires has created,quite an exceptional reputation for,themselves by,having great performing tires that hold,up to just about any kind of abuse,you put them through and today we,highlight our first a general tire,with their popular all-terrain x-series,or atx,so make sure and smash that subscribe,button so that way,you guys can hold on to the ride with us,also keep in mind guys that if you,should decide to,grab yourselves a set of general,grabbers from our website drillbit,offroad.com,and package them with a set of wheels,not only do we mount and balance them,for you for free but if you live in the,lower 48,we also ship them to you at no extra,charge as well and that is a heck of a,savings,all right guys lets go check out these,atxs ready lets go,now we have received a bunch of comments,from all of you for,us to do an overview video of the,grabber atx,and the first thing we wanted to point,out is that the atx could easily,be confused with their previous model,at2 line as they both have almost,identical center tread patterns,but the biggest noticeable change are,the staggered and blocky shoulder lugs,and side biters,as youll notice that they are much more,defined than the at2,the atx which the x means that its,designated from general tire as a hybrid,or crossover tire and was designed to be,a blend of,general x3 mud terrain with a more,robust sidewall and aggressive shoulder,lugs,and generals previous at2 all-terrain,to give it a respectable,on-road handling and a quiet ride plus,lots of great traction characteristics,without sacrificing off-road performance,and thats where,you guys that have daily drivers who,still need their toyota jeep,truck or suv to handle well on the road,last a good amount of miles and still,take you where you need to go,off-road are really gonna like this tire,almost everyone we talked to that had,the atx,gave it a more than acceptable review in,fact,its the tire choice for popular,overlanders like expedition overland for,example,who have been running generals tires,since they started,granted im sure general sponsors their,tires but if you watch their videos they,are genuinely satisfied with the,performance of their tires from,general totally butchered genuinely,hey guys we had to interrupt todays,video to let you guys know that for the,month,of november we have some super awesome,deals,going on all month all you got to do is,click the link above me here,or go to trailbuildoffroad.com from a,distance the tread design,looks to be compactly designed to help,aid in reducing road noise,but at closer inspection the tread voids,and tread depth is,16 30 seconds and look like they will do,a decent job at evacuating mud,as long as you have them spinning at a,faster rate of speed,same with the snow especially the wet,heavy stuff a decent amount of wheel,speed and theyll clear out pretty good,not surprisingly the atx has ample space,between the lugs as these are rated as a,three peak mountain snowflake rated tire,which means they have passed a set,standard as being a high performing tire,in severe winter weather driving,conditions and for more information on,winter tires,make sure and check out our top five,winter tires video by clicking the link,above me,here the atx also has ample amounts of,various,zigzag style siping for extra adhesion,on wet or slippery surfaces and,studdable holes to really help aid in,those situations where you do,a lot of winter driving in areas where,studded tires are legal anyways which,they are not legal here in wisconsin,stud size for the atx is 12 millimeters,or a,tsm number 13. in case you live in a,state where studying the tires,is legal and are looking to stud them,general also states that they have what,is called,comfort balance technology which is a,tread cushioning system built as a,cushioning layer,under the tread and is designed to,provide an extra level of isolation,from road disturbances to help quiet and,smooth out the ride for a bit of extra,road comfort,general has also designed the pattern of,the tread to pitch in a way that gives,it a five roll,tread block pattern for high density,multi-angled tread block edges,to give them an ability to continuously,bite and claw at the terrain below,in multiple directions for that extra,traction in many types of terrain,plus the alternating shoulder scoops,allow a more wide and,open area for additional grip on the,rocks and for more hardcore wheeling,situations,especially while aired down the trek,compound is also made with what general,calls a duragen technology,to provide firm adhesion to the road and,rocks plus,excellent resistance against chips and,cuts general tire offers their atx,in 40 different sizes with one of them,being a 14 inch wheel size and the rest,from 15 inch to 20 inch wheel sizes a,few of the sizes mostly in the 15 inch,size are offered in a c,load range rating a few d load range,ratings across,several different wheel size offerings,and except for a couple of,xl load range the rest are offered in,the e,load range rating and guys to find all,the low rating specs different sizes and,all the other specs,including pricing theyll all be listed,under each atx tire on,trail build and again the link is right,here and guys this is really just a,brief overview of the general grabber,atx so we would love to hear from all of,you,that have them how you guys like them,and what you like about them,or dont like about them also make sure,and tell us what vehicle you have them,on,what size you have and what type of,driving you mostly do,is it on-road driving are you hauling,trailers heavy loads,do you do a lot of off-road driving the,more information,the better or even if you guys do have,any questions on the atxs just let us,know,in the comments below alright guys that,is all that we have for you today and,remember,wheels tires suspension and accessories,for your jeep toyota truck or,suv make sure and check us out,trollbuilt offroad.com,dont forget to hit that subscribe,button and the little bell next to it,thumbs up to like the video and guys as,always we appreciate all of you for,watching and for,all of your support im josh from trail,build and well see you guys,out on the trails

Tire Comparison video with the General Grabber ATX, BF Goodrich KO2, and Goodyear DuraTrac

hi Im Matt McMurray with Campus,automotive in Blacksburg Virginia I,wanted to wanted to show you do a little,video and show you about my favorite,light truck all-terrain tires,Ive got several models here a range,from least expensive to most expensive,as you can see they all look a little,bit different starting right here we,have a the the brand-new general grabber,ATX continental terrain contact 80,Goodyear Wrangler dura track the good,old BF Goodrich all-terrain ko2 and the,Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain adventurer,with Kevlar these are my favorite,all-terrain tires this is what I like to,sell all my customers depending on,depending on what the customers needs,are dictates which tie I recommend for,instance lets say a man has a up to 50,and he tows of Airstream and he goes to,Florida three times a year Im probably,gonna recommend the the Continental,terrain contact 80 because of its more,highway biased tire tread in it if a guy,is real concerned about the looks of his,truck and likes it to be the,best-looking truck on the on the road,Id recommend the BF Goodrich,all-terrain Khao which is really the,gold standard for all-terrain tires this,is the tire that all the rest of the,all-terrain tires were measured against,the ko2 was new for last year so its,got some good updates to it with tread,compound and tread design to fix some of,the things that were shortcomings on the,regular Keo Goodyear Wrangler dirt track,this is this is for the guy who needs,more aggressive tread pattern maybe he,owns a farm he just sometimes he gets in,the mud in the muck spends more time,offroad than the guy with the f250,thats gonna haul his camper so Ill,usually recommend in this dirt track,because its aggressive also if you if,you drive a lot in the snow,this is a very good time now this is an,interesting time this is a new tire for,general the grabber ATX they used to,have the grabber 82 which was a which,was a great all-terrain tire sort of,lowered to middle range in price this is,a very unique tire because this tire can,meet the needs of all types of different,drivers for instance if you have if you,tow a trailer a lot this is a great time,for you if you drive a lot in the snow,if you go off-road occasionally or on,gravel or rocky roads this is a good,choice for you all the way to the left,the Wrangler all-terrain adventurer with,Kevlar we sell a lot of these to,commercial customers customers that may,have multiple trucks and their fleets,that need a good strong reliable tire,thats very puncture resistant and its,quiet and performs well and you know,dirt and dusty conditions but you know,we do a lot of these tires on horse,track horse trucks veterinary trucks we,do a lot of tyres for for VDOT,Department of Transportation some,pipeline trucks anything that youre,going to use that youre really going to,use a lot in very severe conditions this,is a good tire because its tough so we,got these tires set up in order from,least expensive to most expensive and,everything in between this gives you a,good range of the price and strategy and,availability of these tires so as you,can see one of the main differences in,this 80 X compared with the 82 is the,amount of saiping in the tread and the,saiping in the tread are usually these,grooves right here or in some cases,squiggles like this tire but what that,allows it to do is,maintain traction particularly in,slippery and snowy conditions because,these tread blocks can move and squirm,as needed to deliver the most amount of,traction possible so we can see on this,tire weve got weve got lots of sipes,in each tread groove also in the,Goodyear duro track we have lots of,sipes in the tread groove – all over the,tire if Chris the same way multiple,sites in each tread block and also the,Goodyear all-terrain adventurer with,Kevlar now the interesting point,interesting part is you can see that,this tire the site to look much,different still serve the same purpose,but since this is more highway oriented,tire these sipes perform just a little,bit different this the the general,grabber ATX is actually three Peak,Mountain certified for snow because in,certain western states its a law that,you have to run tire chains unless you,have a tire thats three-peat Menten,certified and theres a little symbol on,each tire that signifies if its three,Peak you see how you have one raised,panel and one lower panel so the raised,panel helps kick it off so it doesnt,get the sidewall doesnt get pinched you,can also see that every tread block is,slightly different width and they do,that for acoustics see how they look,different slightly different see how,this one is slightly smaller than this,one even though its a symmetric tie,these blocks are slightly different,sizes and that helps with the acoustics,of the tire and keeps it quiet because,they make if a tire is completely its,completely symmetric and all those,blocks are the same size exactly the,same size it makes like it makes a,strange harmonic,sound that they dont like so on every,single one of these tires you can see,that these blocks are different sizes,from here to here to here to here to,here all slightly different so the,Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain adventure,one of the reasons that its the most,expensive tire here is because it has,DuPont Kevlar – reinforced layers of it,in the tread and the sidewall and,because that material is expensive it,makes it makes the tire more expensive,but its to give it more puncture,resistance and also to just make it a,sturdier stouter tire so out of these,five tires I personally have had a set,of terrain contact ATS Ive had a set of,BF Goodrich altering KO tubes and I have,a set of Wrangler all-terrain adventure,which is a we on a brand new Ford f250,that I own I have not,Ive not owned a set of the dirt tracks,but I have on the set of the grabber 82,I have not owned a set of the ATX yet

General Grabber ATX Test and 20K Review

Perry Mack here with a,“it’s even better because it’s late” tire review,as we tested the General Grabbers ATX through four seasons and across the continent.,We dropped off the new Grabber ATX at OK Tire in Kelowna,to have them mounted,and it was like carrying around a new baby.,The tires were so new at the time,as soon as we announced what we had,,the staff hovered around like new parents in a maternity ward.,They were noticeably quieter than the all-terrain tires we replaced,and sounded as quiet as the OEM all-seasons,which we chucked right after buying the truck.,The Grabber ATX is a blend of the Grabber X3’s strong sidewall,,and the reliable and consistent tread elements of the GRABBER AT2.,The aggressive all-terrain, all-weather tire,has an M+S rating,and has the advantage in icy conditions over other all terrain tires,as it has the option to add studs.,General Tire says their signature DuraGen Technology,provides long, even wear,with excellent cut and chip resistance,,while Stabilitread Technology features a larger footprint,and optimized pattern stiffness to further promote even wear,and long tread life.,We’ll get into how the tread life test turned out, later in the video.,The sipes are full depth,so you’ll maintain wet and snow traction throughout the life of the tire,and General says their Comfort Balance Technology,is a tread cushioning system,with an acoustic tread pattern,that provides a more comfortable, quiet ride on the road,– and our test with the tires supports this.,One of the benefits of living in British Columbia when you’re doing tire tests,is that snow is often just a few thousand feet away,- in elevation.,A mix of rain and wet, heavy snowflakes dropped through dense fog,as we white knuckled our way up the highway to our favourite spot,- Big White Ski Resort.,On flat ground tires provided plenty of grip in the snow,and acceleration around corners at a good speed,was done without getting the heart rate up.,Close to our final destination,,we found a muddy, mushy, wet, snowy work site.,The handling and traction were great,,so naturally we put more gas into the equation,and the only issue we had was blacking out the lens of the GoPro with flying mud.,We decided to find a committed-outdoorsman-rated snow-covered climb,- the kind of road or trail that leads to a remote, no cell reception,,ice-fishing spot or winter campsite.,Nothing better than a logging road leading into the mountains to really see what ATX could do.,Climbing through roughly 10 inches of fresh snow we didn’t experience any slipping.,Days later we tested the tires in loose rock and gravel.,The only thing that held the ATX back,was the poor approach and breakover angle of the Ram.,The tires pulled and pushed the truck along,until either the rock or gravel scraped and blocked the front bumper like a snow plow,,or the tires left the ground.,Although our home town review was done,,we never turn down an opportunity to test tires,– especially with someone else’s Ford F150s,,Wranglers,,or Lamborghini, drag race, Mustang…,So when the call came from General Tire,our bags were packed and we were on our way to ICAR at the old Mirabel airport in Quebec.,We had tested the tires using our Ram 1500 in winter conditions,but now we could test them again in summer dirt,,mud and wet grass.,Once again the X-AT’s proved to be solid performers.,We were able to test them on three different vehicles,from one coast to almost the other,,and heres the late part,,even though we shot the footage in April and June of 2018,,we never had the chance to produce the video until now,,The upside is we can show you the tires after 20 thousand kilometres of driving,at roughly 90% on-road.,Our journeys for work include a fully loaded truck crossing the coast mountains in winter,,and dozens of early morning, and late night trips to hockey practices and games.,We still stand by the results we got a year ago,Do you run your AT tires through the winter,,do you have snow where you live,,do you already own a set of General tire ATX,,what do you think of them?,Let us know in the comments below.,If you enjoyed this video share it,,smash that like button,,and if youd like to see more please subscribe,and ring the bell so you’re the first to know when a new video comes out.,Until next time, stay safe and well see you on the trails.

General Grabber ATX 50k Miles Of Abuse – Tire Review

whats happening this wheel aka sir,william and today im going to be,reviewing the general grabber atx,all-terrain tires what i like about them,what i dislike about them and what i,recommend them for you lets get started,i want to start off by telling you this,is probably going to be a little bit of,a different type of tire review than,what youre likely used to seeing on,youtube first and foremost i have zero,affiliation with general tire and i,dont sell tires they didnt give me,this set of tires i had to buy the set,of tires and heres the receipt to prove,it secondly this is not an initial tire,review a lot of folks will put a new set,of tires on their truck and then theyll,go and do a video on their first,impressions or maybe three months or six,months afterwards ive had these tires,for well over a year now and ive put,over 50 000 extremely hard miles if,youre new to the channel i invite you,to go check out some of the other videos,of the adventures that ive taken my,4runner on and the abuse that these,tires have seen but i assure you they,have seen some absolute abuse maybe even,torture theyve seen every type of,terrain imaginable from mud sand rocks,you name it these tires have done it now,i started overlanding all around the,united states and apple my toyota,4runner back in 2015,and since then ive had three sets of,tires i started out with a nitto terra,grappler all terrain went to a bf,goodwrench ko2 all terrain and now i,have the general grabber atx all terrain,so youll hear me compare this tire to,those other sets of tires all of which,have experienced similar abuse and,conditions if you dont feel like,watching the entire video and youre,only here to see if i would recommend,the general grabber atx all-terrain tire,the answer is yes i would absolutely,recommend this tire to anybody and,everybody thats looking for an,all-terrain tire with that said i want,to show you guys how theyve worn over,the past 50 000 miles of abuse as well,as give you the goods and the bads of,the tire itself first lets start off by,looking at the tread as you can see,theres some wear on these treads and,you can see some significant chunking,and different things like that this is,the uh front left this is the front,right,some chunking right there,the rear,and last but not least the left rear as,you can see theyve all got a pretty,even amount of chunking on them and,pretty even amount of tread on them,unfortunately i dont have any coins to,show you the depth but,if i uh if i had to guess i probably,still have abe lincolns head in there,im almost positive of it but as you can,see there is some pretty significant,chunking and the reason that that,happens is as the tire wears down the,lugs just cant bend anymore so what,they do is they end up breaking off and,this typically happens as you get more,and more miles on a tire since i go,off-road so much im often running these,tires well below the recommended 32 psi,at somewhere around 20 and sometimes,even 15 psi whenever you run on pavement,with low psi in your tire you build up,heat and heat is bad for anything and,tires are no exception the more excess,heat you have the more problems youre,going to have with wear and different,things like that that said the general,grabbers have done fantastic at handling,this abuse surprisingly theyve worn,pretty evenly all the way around now one,thing i have done in order to preserve,the tires as much as possible is i keep,the tires rotated every five thousand,miles i ensure that i get these tires,rotated so that way i can get the,maximum performance out of them and as,you can see you can tell within the,tread pattern now lets move to the,outside of the tire starting with this,front left here you can see some,significant spots here where theyve,been cut into and this is from rocks and,different things like that to be honest,with you i dont know how i havent,punctured the side of this tire now this,is an e-rated tire which i highly,recommend an e-rated tire a 10-ply tire,if you will those are a whole lot,stronger and theyre going to be able to,handle the abuse a whole lot better,but yeah you can see here that this,thing is pretty cut up but its still,performing and its still doing well,over here on the front right you can see,the same thing you see a lot of cuts in,the sidewalls there a lot of scuffing,and a lot of chipping and different,things like that and thats all from,hitting rocks and going through,extremely rough terrain moving on to the,right rear its a similar story over,here again its chunked up chipped up,cut up and everything you can imagine,but its still holding in there and,performing,this ones even got,a piece missing out the back here,left rear similar story but you see here,this has got a significant hole looks,like in there but its not leaking from,there again its scuffed up cut up,skimmed up and all the above but its,still running good so as you can see,these tires are pretty well beat up with,that said though i still have confidence,enough in these tires that i dont,hesitate to hop on the interstate and do,80 miles an hour or go on an over,landing trip as a matter of fact,currently right now where im filming,im in the middle of a trip through,colorado on the colorado back country,discovery route that is a solid mix of,around 70 to 30 percent off road to,pavement over landing across the,northern portion of colorado all the way,down to the southern portion and ill,experience every type of terrain,imaginable on this trip and i have all,the confidence that the general grabber,will bring me through it just fine now,each of these tires have at least one,patch or plug in them and as a matter of,fact i think this is the only tire that,still consistently holds a steady air,pressure,now none of the punctures have come from,any rocks or anything like that its,mostly been road debris or nails,different things of that nature as,opposed to my nittos that i had where i,punctured them five times on one trip,just off the little rocks that are in,the forest service roads all right how,do they handle thats what everybody,wants to know so lets break that down,into a couple different categories,starting with on-road performance,on-road this is the smoothest quietest,and most balanced all-terrain tire ive,ever put on a vehicle,period hands down they dont make too,much noise in cab and theyve stayed,that way from the time that theyre,brand new all the way up until now with,50 plus thousand miles on them generally,youll find that all terrain tires start,to get louder or any tire starts to get,louder the more miles you get on them,and i havent found that to be the case,with the generals as far as wet weather,performance go the general do pretty,well i think that the bfgs do better i,did have one particular time with the,generals that i was going down a steep,hill and it had a sharp turn at it and,the back end kind of came out from,underneath it is quite scary luckily,apple has traction control and all that,good stuff so wet weather id say that,it does pretty well if i had to do a one,to ten i would say probably a seven as,far as overall on-road performance,though i would give these a nine out of,ten off-road performance is going to be,broke down into a couple different,categories as well so first lets start,off with sand in loose sand such as the,beach or sand dunes different things,like that when you properly air these,down this is a phenomenal tire this,thing got me all throughout the sand,dunes of oklahoma its gotten me all,throughout the beaches of outer banks so,its definitely a good tire in the sand,as with the bfg now the nitto i got,stuck in the sand twice i got stuck once,out in the beach of oregon and then i,got stuck in the sand one other place,too i cant remember but i think that,might have been from not properly airing,down so i wont necessarily compare it,compared to the bfg though these two are,both neck and neck the general grabber,atx is a fantastic tire in the sand so,long as

Two Commercial Tires General Grabber HD & Michelin Agilis Crossclimate

[Music],todays video is about commercial tread,tires,ive got the general grabber hd and the,michelin agilis cross client,if youre new to campus automotive we do,tire comparisons tire reviews and lots,of tire talk,so subscribe and hit the bell to keep up,hi im matt mcmurray from campus,automotive in blacksburg virginia and,today weve got some commercial tires,here the general grabber hd,and the michelin agilis cross climate,were getting ready to get into the,winter season,and i wanted to make sure that there,were some options that we shown,that would be appropriate for some light,snow and winter weather traction,so commercial tread tires theyre,heavy-duty tires,theyre made for contractors for,delivery van,for service truck people for really you,trades people that are out here working,their trucks hard and working their vans,hard,that really need something to be super,durable heavy duty,not easy to bust can operate at heavy,heavy loads,if its maybe a brush truck or or,something with a,you know a tool bed on the back of it,thats going to run,at extremely heavy loads at all time,these tires are going to last,a lot longer than you your,run-of-the-mill a.t tire,or your highway to red tire so they,really have a specific purpose,both of these tires believe it or not,are the exact same size,245 75 16. you can see that that,michelin is just a hair taller,and the general is just a hair wider,even though theyre the exact same tire,you can see that each of them have their,own special features,thats going to protect you as a,commercial driver keep your fleet tires,cost,low and and be good for for that heavy,duty application,so first up we have the general grabber,hd now you can see this tread pattern,resembles an all-terrain tire but its,really not,but its meant to look good its meant,to give you the traction that you need,on job sites on dirt roads on gravel,roads,doing all the things that a commercial,driver would probably need,does have multiple biting edges in this,center groove thats going to give you,your traction and your light snow,give you your wet weather traction,continuous rib in the middle here,thats going to give you your stability,on the highway continuous ribs on the,outer ribs thats going to make it last,a long time,especially in tight turning areas where,youre in a city or something and youre,just,continuously turning gonna keep it,stable in those situations,tread patterns made to be wide and give,a good contact patch so when its under,a,really really heavy load it stays,uniform and you stay safe and stable,going down the road,now on the sidewall here you see these,little fins these little fins are,made to help cool the tire under heavy,load conditions,does have the dura gen compound which,most general truck tires do and thats,going to be,chip and cut resistance and keeping the,tire lasting a long time and keeping it,good in wet weather,you also have the rim protector here and,thats going to keep you from scraping,the ram on the curbs,protect that bead protect that rim so,that it doesnt scar them up if you hit,the curb too because you,if youre city delivering or youre a,contractor youre a delivery van,or youre something with that,application youre going to be hitting a,lot of curbs,youre going to be hitting a lot of,things that could damage this rim and,this just protects that so you got,multiple plies on the sidewall these are,both 10-ply tires,just gonna be for your heavy-duty pickup,trucks and all that stuff so,overall a really good tire weve sold a,bunch of them,people have been super happy with them,theyre priced right,middle of the range on pricing it is a,u.s made tire so its got high quality,steel and nylon in it,its just overall its a really good,tire,so now we have the michelin agilis cross,climate,so this tires got some unique features,first of all its three peak mountain,snowflake rated has an,all-terrain type tread pattern really,made for your winter climates it is,commercial tread you can see that the,tread pattern is,narrower than on the general grabber hd,but i think its designed to give you,that better,winter weather traction got way more,sipes you can see the siping squiggle,here,these sipes go all the way down to 2 30,seconds to give you that traction,and its got a common a compound,especially adapt,to winter weather snowy weather wet,weather,in the winter time the compound works,good at colder temperatures,its really made to bridge that gap,between,the commercial highway tire and the,dedicated winter tire,its kind of a hybrid cross cross tire,what i would consider,but you can see that this tread pattern,doesnt have a continuous,tread block in the middle it has,individual tread blocks,thats whats going to give you your,extra traction off-road your all-terrain,type traction,your heavy snow type traction thats,going to be a necessity rib here these,big grooves evacuate water as you can,see,tons of biting edges everywhere you turn,on this tire,thats going to give you all that,traction in that light snow,and icy conditions youre also going to,see that this tire has a lot of tread,depth,so its meant to last a long time and,when you load this tire up heavy its,made to run,really cool at high speeds at high loads,and what happens is these outer tread,blocks here are tied together with this,center rib right here to give it that,stability,so when youre up with a three-quarter,ton truck and and you know you have two,three thousand pounds worth of payload,its going to hold it steady and its,going to last a lot longer,than your conventional all-season,highway tire,its really made to be extremely durable,now the sidewall here these little,blocks here,this sidewall has more nylon and steel,than your typical,highway terrain all-season tire and,these little blocks here are to deflect,that curb damage,when you pinch it up against the curb,does not have a rim protector,but does have this protection for scrub,on a curb,because theyre going they expect these,tires to see high scrub conditions,particularly,on your promaster your sprinter and your,transit vans,so overall really good tire its going,to last a long time,i think some people have had some,problems with treadwear on this tire,but this tire is designed to last a,really long time when loaded up,and not necessarily a really long time,when youre not loaded up,so if youre not a commercial customer,this may not,be the tire for you there are better,options in the all-terrain side,or in the highway terrain side so if,youve had any experience,or you have any questions or any,feedback on either of these tires,feel free to drop them in the comments,below like subscribe do all the things,hit the little bell to keep you notified,and have a good day

General Grabber red letter Tire Review

hey Ronnie though four-wheeling in,Western Australia calm and Im bringing,to you finally a review on the general,grabbers which Ive had on this vehicle,for thirteen months about forty-five or,fifty thousand kilometers somewhere in,there,this is a proper comprehensive review as,Ive trial and tested them and put them,through everything that I can possibly,get to here in Western Australia and Im,pretty happy with them and Ill go into,detail on every aspect of the tyre and,the good points and the bad points radio,so lets look at the type of Toyotas,first and I just want to mention that I,have actually paid for this tyres myself,this is not a product I was given to,test out or anything so this is on my,own back to start the knitters I had,before so this is a general grabber and,it is listed as an all-terrain tire,however I would personally consider it,as an all-terrain slash mud terrain,which is kind of the reason why I got it,the reason why I consider it a cross,between mud and all-terrain is because,of the aggressive tread pattern and the,sidewall and also to strengthen a,sidewall now the sidewall strength we,might as well get straight into that,its got a three ply sidewall and a,seven ply tread it is a really heavy,tire as well so just keep that in mind,really heavy the size that is tight is a,3-1 575 R 16 so it equates to I think,thirty four point eight so lets just,call it a 35 inch tire its a radial,tire and its tubeless and the load,rating is d the max load for a single,tire is fourteen hundred and fifty,kilograms and that in pounds equates to,3195 thats what it says on the tire,anyway and the maximum call psi,Ford is tire is 50 psi and its made in,the USA so that has to be a good thing,right alright now on to longevity and,on-road handling before we get to offer,it handling so longevity Ive had them,for forty five to fifty thousand,kilometers theres roughly about 60,percent tread left or 65 percent trailer,average across all the ties now having,rotated them like youre supposed to and,that was because I wanted to preserve,two fresh tires for my winter trips,because were going to encounter a lot,of mud and I wanted to give them a fair,go in the mud to really test them out so,given the torture test the sort of had,theyve actually done really well in the,wet on the wet roads Ive only ever slid,out once and thats because I took the,canopy off and I wasnt used to the,white so theyre actually pretty grippy,on the road and on normal tarmac theyre,really grippy as well Ive had to stop,suddenly a couple of times I pull up and,Ive pulled up really well but one thing,they are really noisy on the road like,Im not just talking a little bit of,noise Im talking real noisy they are,what you expect the noise from a an,aggressive mud terrain tire thats we,get out of these tires,previous tires I had which were done in,territorial grapplers also a review of,those they were too quite as Matar Ive,ever had these are the loudest tire that,Ive ever had Neils rain so that puts,it into perspective there but it doesnt,bother me but it may bother you radio,time to discuss the off-road handling of,the general grabbers on the vehicle so,off-road handling well lets discuss the,tire in general first and with these,tires really stiff sidewall strong build,you need to let a bit more air out of,these tires than you would at a most,other all terrains just to get the same,sized footprint I have staked one tire,so far it could stake by a bit of old,burnt bush we went through an area down,in the southern part of Western,Australia and thats where it happened,first I mistake to tie in two years so,Ive got a pretty good record there got,to say ho it in jinx myself now anyway,so lets discuss the actual different,terrains of what these tires are good,for,sandé driving these tires,fare really well on sand now as I,mentioned before you just need a little,bit more psi than you normally would and,these will take you anywhere on the sand,Ive only been bogged once and I was on,that Bremer Bay trip where we had a side,slope but everyone was having a bit of,trouble there but apart from that really,good on sand better than the previous,mud tires Ive had and mind you this,isnt a mud tire this is an all-terrain,tire,mud on the other hand is a bit of a,different story I was really pleased and,really surprised how well our event in,the mud and there there are two specific,videos not that long ago on a YouTube,channel where you can see how I went in,the mud,I was really impressive them now the,other guys thought that Ill struggle in,the mud because Ive got an all-terrain,tire it actually went really well there,is one thing I will say though when,youre in the mud with these tires you,get to a point where you lose traction,and you start sliding especially when,you got weight on the rear now that is a,common problem people like me and others,with a lot of weight on the back of,these heavy Land Cruisers or distant,patrols or whatever the car is normally,its not too bad its kind of,controllable with my tires,with these tires however when you do get,to that critical point of sliding you,will slide 90 degrees guaranteed its,happened to me three times so that is,one bad thing about these tires they,actually really good a mud but when you,reach that critical point of sliding,they will send you into a ninety degree,slide now onto rocks and on rocks I,think these tires are really good and,thats because of the tread pattern is,all see with a mud tire I do firmly,believe the mud tires are better for,rock crawling other people will disagree,and thats fair enough I find that with,these tires here because given the tread,pattern and the sidewalls arent that,aggressive its kind of got two people,with smooth grip on the rocks so,climbing up the side of rocks climbing,over rocks sideways over some rocks,these tires are really good for that so,Im really pleased with that as well,so overall really off-road Im pretty,happy to size so now comes the golden,question would I buy these tires again,yeah Id buy them again but Ill also,buy my previous tires again as well the,other set I had on it Ive had a really,good luck or good run with two different,brands of tires so far on the,Landcruiser so Im pretty happy but I,like trying new things,or new gadgets new tires so Ill,probably go for something a bit,different,Ive heard that general are bringing out,a specific mud terrain tire sort of kind,of based similar on these ones that are,under the cornea so maybe Ill wait for,those maybe Ill get those mobile try,something else Im not sure what does it,go for actually leave some suggestions,down below and it will give me some,ideas of what to try next well thanks,for watching I hope this review has,answered all the questions that Ive,been asked since I bought them and,thanks for your patience because you,guys been asking since day one that I,firmly believe to really give a decent,review on a product especially tires you,really need to get the longevity out of,them to see how to actually really fair,and Ive had them on every single type,of terrain you can think of in Wi Im,pretty confident with my review so I,hope its helping you out to make a,decision wherever this toss is you or,wherever it doesnt suit you and thanks,for watching you

General Grabber ATx Long Term Tire Review

welcome to thrifty garage my name is,Carson in todays video were gonna look,at a youth set of tires and compare them,to a new set of tires these are both,general grabber ATX tires and I wanted,to show you the differences and the,tread life wear between the two on the,left here weve got the tires off the,4runner which have just under 20,thousand miles and on the right here,weve got the tires off my dream ax,truck which are brand new so well have,a good comparison of new versus old but,first lets go take those tires off,[Music],lets talk about my real-world,experience now that Ive got some miles,on these tires,initially they rode very well they are,quiet and they worked phenomenal in snow,and ice and still to this day I can say,they were great in the snow and ice even,now its almost half tread life theyre,doing really well and as far as,quietness they started out very quiet,and at about ten thousand miles they,developed some company part of the,reason for that company is both of these,tires are oversized so I havent,experienced any cupping with the Chevy,but I didnt experience that with the,4runner so my recommendation to avoid,cupping would be to rotate your tires,every 5,000 miles this is generally the,manufacturer specifications anyways they,recommend that so after using the tire I,definitely say thats thats a need not,a want thats something you should be,doing with these tires the volume did,increase with that once I rotated them,it took them while they were actually,more noisy after I rotated them but,after a few hundred miles they actually,fly him back down as those cupping,theres the tires that were cupping,were on the front as I moved him to the,back once I put some miles on those and,leveled him out by putting some miles,and reducing the tread life the noise,went away company went away and they,smooth right back out and Ill show you,these tires these have been on for,another five six seven thousand miles,since that rotation and theyre getting,the point where they need to be rotated,again and so there might be some slight,cupping thats starting to develop again,so something to keep in mind another,negative which I have discovered both in,my initial videos as well as over time,is these tires like to pick up the rocks,one once you wear outlet red theyre not,gonna pick up the rocks smudge this,tread doesnt have very many rocks in it,theres a few very small ones,I just just really tiny rocks but this,tire over here you can see a pretty big,one right here so the reason these these,collect rocks is because these are I,believe the tallest tread in the,industry for an all-terrain tire The BFG,ko2 S which tends to be a kind of an,industry leader they have 14 30 seconds,tread depth and these tires come with,fifteen thirty Seconds tread depth so,these are a very tall and that was one,of my first impressions as well as that,they have very substantial tread depth,towing capability is another reason I,got these tires,both of these tires are load range e,despite the fact that the 4runner,generally would have a load range c tire,which the disadvantage theyre going to,load very a load range e is that its,going to be really a heavy tire this I,think added about 20 pounds so I think,the stock tire is about thirty pounds,and this tire is about fifty pounds so,that a lot of weight and a lot of,rolling lace weight and my miles per,gallon suffer because of that so I cant,speak to what what this tire would do if,you had the correct size a little bit,smaller and also the correct load range,but I do believe that that would be a,lot more in line with what youd,experience the stock tire this is much,much more aggressive than the stock tire,and honestly the stock tire the reason I,put these on stock tire were out at 30,thousand miles so why did I put these,tires on the work truck I tried a,mountain 4runner I used the forerunner,to tow my trailer for my business and,they did it really well that conform,really well and they hooked up on gravel,in dirt roads and so nice so I knew that,theyd perform all off of the truck but,a passenger car tire does not always,mean for a good truck tire so Ive got a,separate video on why I chose this tire,for a towing tire but Ive lost one,winner and I needed a good tire that,would have traction much like the stock,car was on this truck was not doing a,sufficient job so I needed a tire to,have good in traction in my experience,the load range e on this tire led me to,believe this via guitar as well and now,put about a thousand miles on this one,it has been a very good experience there,I think those are the main talking,points that I really wanted to cover so,lets get into the tread depth and,actually compare them and see which one,has try to figure out what percentage of,tread life were at these are rated for,I believe a 55,000 mile tire and like I,said were just shy of 20,000 miles,were at about 18,000 miles right now,put these on at 30,000 miles and 400 now,has 48,000 miles on it this tire put on,the truck about a month ago and its,probably had about a thousand miles on,it since then so this would be a good,comparison of pretty much brand new in,contrast to quite a bit used tire so,that resume did a little bit lets take,a look at the tread these tires came off,the front of the Chevy truck and you can,see that theyve still got their,regional ridge around the outline here,not so much on the inside here but it is,on the outside so thats the original,tread lug so if we look over here so,here this block it is one two three four,five and over here this middle block the,second block down has actually merged,third block so thats kind of where,theyre saiping has ended and theyre,trying to keep this in one big lug as,the tread wears down one thing with,tread wear different manufactures will,do different compounds sometimes theyll,do a really soft compound on the top to,get really good traction at first and,then as that you go further down itll,be a harder compound to make it last,longer and that very well could be the,case here lets go ahead and pull up my,high-tech tools we got this to measure,Im sorry I dont have a tire depth,gauge but I think this will do a pretty,good job and were gonna use this,digital caliper Ill turn this on lets,hear this out well measure that now,point five two inches I believe these,have a tread depth of fifteen thirty,Seconds general grabber 80x tread depth,these came back from a search so I,looked up the specs again and it makes,it really easy this is actually sixteen,thirty Seconds tread depth and were,about 0.5 inches right now so thats,thats perfect thats exactly where we,want to be so that gives us a good,number to go off of so this will just be,a percentage of that so we are at 0.33,inches so 0.33 inches so were doing,pretty good on that,so 0.5 inches is brand new 0.33 inches,so 0.25 inches will be half tread well I,guess were really basing it off our,wear bars in here so maybe Ill do a let,me let me do a measurement right there,onto our wear bark thats really when,this tire needs to be replaced itll,give you more accurate indicator of your,remaining life I know this is a super,calibrated tool but honestly this is not,much different than what youll see the,guys use at the tire shop so here this,out again we are gonna be quite a bit,less maybe well Wow,okay we are at 0.25 two inches to,our-our wear bar here that goes across,so what does that mean unfortunately,that means that this tire is that its,half life and its only got 18,000 miles,on it so this is why Im doing this,review video for the consumers out there,to know how long this tire might last,like I said this is not necessarily a,true indicator of how long this tires,gonna last that that you know we are,definitely at 50% tread right now almost,exactly so at 18,000 miles or a 50%,tread so if things keep going on the,same track this is only in the last of,36,000 miles which is falling short of,the 55 thousand mile warranty but like I,said this could be a harder co
