BFG A/T vs General Grabber AT2's
I have done the research, but never see these two compared...

I'm probably gonna get 33"/12.5/15... by what i've read.
I've narrowed all the tires I've seen down to these two.

BF Goodrich A/T's vs General Grabber AT2's


Each have their benefits... However MOST people i've seen on the forum recommend the BFG's. $30 difference, and General's ratings seem to be higher than BFG's... My question is more specific to my area... I need tires that are good for off-roading (respectively) for a 2WD (yes, i know they arent meant for it, but its better than having STOCK tires!) I'll have a 3" suspension lift as well. I live in Indiana, so i'll need the tires to be able to accommodate me in RAIN, ICE, MUD, and SNOW. Mostly i'll just be doing LIGHT off-roading and trails...

Given that information... Whats everyone think??

The BFGs have a stronger sidewall, other than that their basically the same. Either one would be a good choice.

they both suck in mud i dont care what you general guys say seen them suck in mud..

both are fine everywhere else.

like trent said its stronger sidewalls on BFG..

plus i just dont like the look of the generals the side profile...

When you get statistics you need to break them down. The BFG's are a tried and true tire that has been around since I was in high School. The General Grabber 2's are a new tire, less people have them, less people have reviewed them. A lot less for that matter.


1 - 10 of 1633 that fit your search criteria with an average overall rating of 8.33

1 - 10 of 422 that fit your search criteria with an average overall rating of 8.42

FWIW, i just would spend the extra money on BFG's cause I've had great luck with BFG and no luck with General.

i've had general grabbers aw's for the lift of my truck, 25k miles, they wear great, very quiet... but i broke a belt on a dirt road. I think the bfgs are better if you need stronger tires, but do your trails even have real rocks in IN?

I don't have any experience with the Generals, but I have the BFGs on my F150. I don't take that truck offroad but I imagine the tires would be fine for light stuff. They're a super smooth and quiet tire on the street though.

fall of 07, I drove my truck through a small mud pond, that was about 2ft deep of water. about 5ft acrossed, in the middle of a house development... to my shear surprise I did not get stuck, even after traversing it about 50x.

I have never owned the BFG's, just the AT2's and im happy.

They also handled the 4ft snow drifts in a mall parking lot and 2+ ft of snow just fine.
