The General Grabber AT car tyre is aimed at 4x4s and other vehicles that spend time both on and off road. It provides strong traction and excellent handling on all terrains, combined with decent longevity and good fuel economy for tyres in this class, and it's offered at a very affordable price point.
The Grabber AT has been introduced to replace the popular Grabber AT2. It provides substantial improvements on the AT2, especially in the areas of braking in wet conditions and reduced rolling noise. Note that the AT is the more modern of the two - an area of confusion for some people.
The tread on the AT takes a very different approach to that on the old AT2. The AT2's angular scales are replaced by grooves formed in swirling curves, a considerably better way of removing water from beneath the crown of the wheel, making it much safer on and off the road. Reviews indicate that users are very happy with the new design and there is no reduction in off-road handling in mud, snow and other challenging conditions.
The tyre is robust, as you would expect of an AT tyre, rated to carry more weight than average, and it has a silica reinforced rubber that is firm and rigid to optimise handling. The tyre is described as an "all-season" tyre, however it is not optimised for exceptionally icy winter conditions. Winter tyres are generally softer and therefore will not achieve the same mileage as the AT.
The deep groove profiles are U rather than V shaped, minimising the retention of stones or mud, whilst locking more securely into soft ground or loose dirt tracks. The base of every groove is cut with traction ridges for outstanding traction, and the result is better steering and improved driver-tyre responsiveness in all conditions. Stiff shoulder blocks optimise circumferential stiffness for even wear and better mileage.
The tyre is built from a durable rubber composite that is relatively lightweight. Combined with the new tread, this has helped reduce rolling resistance, for better fuel economy and reduced noise.
Official EU ratings of these tyres vary considerably for the different rim sizes; they receive E, F and G for fuel economy, between C and F for grip on wet roads, and are approved for top speeds between Q and H (99-130mph). It is therefore important to look into the specifications for your precise vehicle. Examine the tyres already fitted or consult your driver's manual, if in doubt. Alternatively, Protyre has experts always on hand to provide advice on the ideal tyres for your particular vehicle and driving intentions.
