Born from Baja, Tamed for the Streets
(May 26, 2010) – 4 Wheel Parts will debut the New General Grabber Off-Road Tire at all locations available now. General Tire brings this race-winning technolo gy to every-day use with the introduction of the new extreme traction tire for the street and off-road, the General Grabber. The General Grabber will be sold exclusively at 4 Wheel Parts till August 1st.
“General has taken the best elements from their successful Grabber Competition-Only tire, and re-engineered it with a balance of off-road capability and on-road manners for today’s light truck market,” said Greg Adler, CEO, 4 Wheel Parts. “We are proud that General looked to 4 Wheel Parts as the leader in the off-road industry, to exclusively launch this great new tire!”
A tough three-ply reinforced body construction and a race-proven chip- and tear-resistant Duragen tread compound stand up to the rigors of highway, and off-road conditions. General Tire’s Duragen technologies consist of ultra-high strength steel belts and a new 3-ply casing. In fact, the steel belts in one Grabber tire are strong enough to lift a trophy truck, and the ultra-durable micro-fiber 3-ply casing makes the Grabber the strongest General tire ever produced.
The Grabber’s patented “Strake and Chamfer” tread design is a pattern that is designed to take on the elements. The strake, or sweeping groove across the tread, allows the chamfering (or opening) of the corners of the tread blocks to directly interface with off-road terrain. Looking down at the tread, the pattern appears to be one that will be very quiet on paved roads, but when you look across the tread horizon, you see the traction “pockets” created by this patented technology. The result is very aggressive off-road traction in a pattern that is very stable and quiet on paved roads.
The tough sidewall design is engineered from General Tire’s off-road competition experience, and — in a General Tire first — the Grabber, in select sizes, will include the same extremely popular red lettered sidewalls that are used in the desert racing version of the Grabber.
The Grabber is available in a range of popular 15″ to 20″ sizes to fit a variety of pickups, sport trucks and SUVs. General Tire has backed this tire with a 60-day Customer Satisfaction Warranty.
