I have really been happy with my General Tires, good dry and wet traction, and good handling. No complaints. I switched over to Michelin X Ice tires (4) here just a couple of weeks ago for winter. I just have 2wd and decided to be extra cautious and went with snow tires. If the General Grabber HTs's are still on the market when my current summer tires need replacing I will go with them.

I had a set of General exclaim UHP (summer tire) for my GTi and hated them. They wore way to fast and had horrible wet traction. I got a whole 20K out of them before the got hard and sucked. After that I swore to never buy another set of Generals. Can't speak for the ATs. Good luck. I hope they last longer than the exclaim UHPs.

Hello. I need to switch out my longtrails before i go to Moab next wkd. Grabbers dont have my size and neither does bf good atkos. Have you done any research on the goodyear wrangler silent armor? I have 265 60 18. Been tough trying to find off road tire. This seems like my best bet. Any suggestions?
My 2003 Frontier King Cab SE Desert Runner has a set of General HTS tires (255/65-16). These tires have been very good - nice ride, decent handling, fairly quiet.
I live in SC, so I cannot say how they would be in heavy snow, yet they are OK on light snow & slush. They have 48K miles on them (mostly in town) and are just getting to the tread wear indicators, so its about time to start thinking of new tires.
I will definetly buy another set of the General HTS tires. The question is the size? Stock size is 255/65-16, yet I have been thinking of going with a slightly smaller width (245/70-16) in an effort to improve gas mileage. Both of these sizes are rated for the Frontier. The overall diameter of the 245/70-16 is the same as the 255/65-16, and both fit the same 7" OEM rim. The difference is mainly with the Width. We use the truck for on-road, light duty use only.
Will going with the narrower tire really provide any noticable difference?
My brother's truck came stock with Generals. Shittiest tire I've driven with. Was fine in the dry, but skidded around so much in the wet. Snow? Forget about having anything remotely close to traction.
Based on that, I won't buy Generals
