    Default General Grabber AT2 or BfGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO

    Okay guys, im torn between these two tires. On one hand the Grabber is cheap but on the other the BfG AT is better looking and is very popular. Which do you prefer and why?

    General Grabber AT2 or BfGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO??

    Im a big fan of the BF goodrich T/A KOs but that just because I had a set on my old truck and ran them for well over 100k miles and still had tread on them when I traded the truck in.

    I have BFG's and they don't die! I've had them for about 3 years, and put well over 60k on them and still have good tread.

    I heard General Grabber AT2 is a great tire especially a good bang for your buck.
    I think i might switch over to those after my BFG's are done, cause they are just so expensive nowadays.

    Go with the General Grabbers. My previous two sets of tires were BFG Ats and I really liked them, but the cost was just too much to not look at alternative tires. After doing a lot of research, I Recently picked up a set of Grabber AT2s and I love them. I saved over $80.00 per tire and they perform just as well if not better.

    Here's a pic....



    I think they look just as good as a BFG AT

    i love my BFG ATs, but justifying the $$ depends on how you use them.

    i get out in the desert, lower them to 15 psi and run hard(fast) all day long and they hold up great.

    i read a review on the grabbers that talked about the money BFG puts into advertising and how the grabber is a great tire without the BFG hipe/price

    if you do alot of street with mild/slow offroading, i would go for the general grabbers

    i have the all-terrains...i like them, just dont get in the mud....great in the sand even better on the street...i have heard the grabbers are just as good.....so the question i guess is if you want to spend the extra money on a more popular tire.

    you get what you pay for. Generals might be good tires for the price but the BFG is a great tire for the price. They are more expensive up front but how soon will you have to replace the Generals and how well do they hold up on the trail? I don't wonder about the BFGs, hype or price don't matter, they perform when it counts.


    And leave the Duelers out of this. The "Dueler is god" crowd is almost as annoying as the "5.9 = best jeep ever" geeks.

    I've had my Grabber AT2's for 2 and a half years now (mostly highway) and I've had them in WV on trails too(nothing too serious) and I've never been let down by them. They still have "a-lot" of tread left too
