General Grabber Red Letter Tire Review
Continental’s General Grabber makes its way from off-road racing to the jobsite
By Bruce W. Smith
Red-letters on the side of tires is a rarity on the street, and even more so around the jobsite.
So, too, is the tread design found on the Grabber pickup tires, which are the newest addition to the revived General Tire brand Continental Tire is showcasing as their performance arm.
The red letters spelling out “General Grabber” combined with deep, curving grooves that form a series of odd-shaped diagonal tread blocks, are eye magnets wherever you drive.
But during the past month I’ve found these new pickup tires excel at more than just attracting appreciative looks; these are some of the sweetest truck treads to come along in quite some time for overall on- and off-pavement performance.
