General Grabber AT2's now meet severe service requirements

Not sure how new this news is, but i figured i'd pass it along. I live in a pretty arctic climate, with tons of snow and ice for most of the winter. I had been eyeing the BFG AT's but now that the AT2's have the severe service rating (maintain+snowflake) i will likely be ording these up in a few weeks!

Just wanted to pass this along to anyone tire shopping

My guess is they didn't change anything to get the rating. They probably just conducted the test to confirm they do meet the rating requirements.

I have AT2's and they are the best AT tire I have had and that includes the BFG's. You won't be disappointed in the snow and ice with these. Here's some crappy pics of mine.
