Who around here has General Grabber AT2 tires?

If you got these tires, how do you like them so far? Wierd I know. I am in love with my tires, personally.... tho I miss my truck ;( But as far as tread wear, so far so good. and traction is awesome... What are you other people saying bout them? hate them? love them?

I love my AT2's. I have around 10k miles on them and you can't even tell. They are by far the best AT tire I have ever owned. I had the BFG's before these and they sucked in the winter. The AT2's have good traction in everything. I've taken these tires through some pretty deep holes and I have yet to get stuck. The road manners are also very good. I never have to worry about traction in dry, rain, snow or icey conditions. If I don't go MT next I'll be getting another set of these.

he didn't ask for tire recomendations! He asked about grabbers. I hate how everyone has to put in their 2cents about BFG when anyone asks about another tire!

I considered buying them but they were a back order with everybody. They just don't seem to be available right now and have not been for some time now.

i just wanted those that have them, their input. Since these tires are reasonably priced, and alot of people either dont know much about them, or dont know about them, and their an EXCELLENT alternative to the bfg's for those of us on a budget

there doesnt seem to be much difference in the AT2's and the BFG's tread. My only question would be if the AT2s are certified winter traction tires. i know in oregon you dont need chains if you have the BFG ATs

Nittos, I think there about the same price as the AT2 so if I was looking into the AT2 I'd just get the Nitto Terra Grappler.

The bfg's are no more expensive than any other name brand tire. Everyone acts like a 31" is 200 bucks or something.

With shipping it might cost $160 a tire and you get a $75 dollar gift card, and i didn't even search.
