Grabber GT: the tyre for fast and powerful SUVs and offroad-vehicles
Is not just really good to look at
For fast and powerful SUVs and off-road vehicles. Newly developed for high-powered SUVs and offroad vehicles, the Grabber GT is not just really good to look at. Its asymmetric tread design guarantees outstanding handling characteristics on dry and wet surfaces, and a high level of safety thanks to excellent braking performance in the wet. The harmonious tread structure on the newcomer provides high levels of driving comfort by significantly reducing external rolling noise.
Born in the USA, General Tire offers products for all types of vehicles, for all seasons and all terrains

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

21.08.2020 from Ethan Very reliable tyres priced nicely and perform exactly how I want them to.
17.09.2015 from Kenny McAulay Label indicates that the GT should be poor when it comes to fuel economy, but we have found them to very good if you keep an eye on the pressures. Excellent all round tyre if you live in the country and can be used all year round with confidence.
04.09.2015 from George Burgess HAD MANUFACTURES ON BUT FOUND TOO HARD AND NO FAITH ON GRIP(WET OR DRY )WILL BE REPLACING THE REAR WITH GRABERS, ALSO COULD BE FITTING ON MY RANGE ROVER AFTER A TEST IN THE SNOW,I BOUGHT AS A GOOD TREAD PATERN.
