We've been waiting for it for a while, and we must say: It's about time! The DOT-approved, street-legal version of the General Grabber race tire is finally here and available for you to purchase from your local General Tire dealer.
When General debuted its retro-looking race tire back in 2008, it caught the off-road industry by surprise, as General had quite a hiatus since last competing in the dirt.
Later that same year, General announced that a street-legal version of the tire would eventually become available to consumers to buy for their highway-driven trucks. But they didn't tell us when....Fast forward to present day, and the tire is finally available.
