I havent had them in a 35 before and im still waiting for another pair to show up. I did have them in a 32 and they rode very smooth, lasted forever and had awesome grip. I will not buy grabbers again however i dont regret having bought them.

Cant really give a proper grabber vs MTR review yet but im confident the MTRs are better in every way lol

They are a max traction, of course they are noisy. And like any m/t tire they arent good on snowy streets but they are unreal in very deep backwoods snow.

The grabbers sounded like a ww1 biplane

I would look into getting them siped (The inner blocks only - to prevent 'chunking').

My set of 35" MT/R's performed much better in packed snow & rain afterwards.

thats a good idea. Had a company that bought some truck off us tell us how they have ripped the lugs clean off those tires where they go. (lease brand new trucks for 2 years, come back like they were in a demo derby. sometime if the truck breaks out in the bush they leave it there. northern ontario, manitoba)


keep us posted man!

ps you still really need a front bumper.

funny you say that haha, when i was looking for one i had my heart set on black.

then i found my white fx4 l2. and was in love with it.

its changed my mind on vehicle colors haha. white is the best!

I hope to have mine LT'd within the next two years. thats the goal. but we all know how life can throw curveballs and mess up our plans!
