General Tire, Continental’s tyre brand with an American heritage, is best known for its high-performance SUV and all-terrain tyres. In line with this focus, and with the motto “anywhere is possible”, it offers a wide range of tyres for SUVs and all-wheel-drive vehicles, and suitable for road use as well as use off-road terrain.
With the Grabber GT, all-wheel tyre specialist General offers a road tyre specially developed for the demands placed on SUVs and all-wheel-drive vehicles. Its particular advantages include a high safety factor when braking on wet and dry roads, precise handling, and safe aquaplaning characteristics.
To limit fuel consumption, the development team kept the rolling resistance low while also raising the mileage performance and increasing the ride comfort.
The Grabber GT is available in 30 sizes, with approvals granted for speeds between 190 and 300 km/h. The tyre sizes are suitable for various SUVs used primarily on the road, such as the Audi Q3, Honda CR-V, Range Rover Evoque, and Porsche Cayenne.
The tread pattern of the Grabber AT has been designed to suit off-road terrain as well as road use. This all-terrain expert features a large number of robust blocks that interlock with the ground, and allow the vehicle to move forward, steer precisely, and ensure short braking distances even on off-road terrain.
The deep tread grooves provide additional grip when the vehicle is traveling over muddy roads or slippery grassland. Aggressive shoulder blocks that reach into the side wall of the tyre prevent the side wall from being damaged.
The Grabber AT has also been designed in such a way that it offers high tread strength for driving on the road, and thus carries out steering and brake commands precisely. General Tire manufactures the model in 17 sizes covering a wide range of rim sizes, between 15 and 20 inches in diameter, and approved for speeds of up to 210 km/h.
As a thoroughbred specialist tyre suited to hard off-road use, the Grabber MT features an open, self-cleaning tread with solid blocks. These interlock with rocks, stony ground, sand and mud to ensure
ultra-high traction, even on the most difficult of trails.
To protect the tyre from impact breaks and damage, its three-layer carcass was designed to be particularly robust (and hence long-lasting), even in extreme off-road use. These features ensure that the Grabber MT is a safe and highly resilient companion on rough terrain.
General Tire manufactures the Grabber MT for 15 and 16-inch rim diameters. It is approved for speeds of up to 160 km/h.
