General Tire's DOT-Approved Grabber Tire - Grabbing DOT Approval

We're pretty greedy when it comes to what we (consumers) want in a tire. We want a tire that can sling mud, grip sharp rocks without coming apart, and hold up at high speeds in the desert while having perfect steering input the whole time. Some of us also want it to be quiet on the road while simultaneously having a long tread life and an aggressive tread look.

General Tire developed its DOT-approved Grabber to handle the extreme while still holding up as a daily-driven tire for the average enthusiast. When General Tire decided to launch its DOT-approved Grabber in Tooele, Utah, in July, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to see how these new street-legal treads performed. The Grabber is like a jack of all trades that can crawl, sling and grip with the best of them.
