Top General Grabber GT Review

Given 89% while driving a Mazda cx5 (225/45 R17 V) on mostly town for 5,000 average miles
Having 90% of the tyres in this size not matching the manufactures speed rating V, I had to research and shop around for a good replacement tyre I could trust for a good price. The oem tyres were Yokohama g98a which performed well in all conditions and I was generally happy with these but when they wore out the replacement price was 320AUD dollars each as well as a treadwear rating of 280 which I wasn't happy with. I found the gt grabbers were a new product which is a mid range tyre from the continental group from well known american general tyres. I picked the tyres for 165 Aud dollars each with a treadwear rating of 420. I couldn't be happier. They perform well in both dry and wet and are comparable to the Yokohamas for half the price. They will also perform better off road too as they are m+s rated. Would happily buy again. Thanks general.

Given 94% while driving a Suzuki Jimny (205/70 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 20,000 miles
General GT has lasted well, nice with the side rib protection.
Handles all the UK weather well, no issue in the snow or wet, nice direct feel in the dry.

Given 80% while driving a Mercedes Benz ML350 (275/45 R20) on a combination of roads for 33 spirited miles
Covered 33,000 km on this set and extremely happy with wear. Always assured of grip and steering feel. The odd gravel road travel proved to be awesome as well. Left with almost another 5,00 to 10,000 km, but pothole damage to 2 tyres forces me to replace the set. Will definitely buy again.

Given 88% while driving a Mercedes Benz ML (255/60 R17 H) on mostly town for 23,000 average miles
When I bought the car it had Accelera Iota on. I replaced them with grabber GTs and the car seemed like a different car. I have been driving on the GTs for almost 3 years and had 1 puncture due to a 2" screw. Although I have not been seriously off road they managed to drag a caravan cross a wet and boggy field without a problem. There always seems to be plenty of traction, under breaking, cornering and acceleration. I have not used the tyre in the snow or on ice so can not comment on the performance. The tyre does have M.S on the side but does not have the mountain graphic next to it.
