My current Firestone destination all terrains are getting worn down finally, been a fantastic long life & trouble free tire for me, but last winter they were slipping around more than I am comfortable with. I would purchase these again hands down as they are a solid well made tire...but I like the new design of the General ATX all terrains and they are 3-peak mountain snowflake rated. Alot of the guy's I work with are running BFG KO2's, but they seem to wear quickly on heavy diesel trucks. I have General suv tires (HTS60) on our 3-other suv rigs, and they are great tires (made by Continental in USA).

Grabber? A/T X | General Tire

By any chance, has anyone tried the new General Grabber ATX tires yet?

I ordered my General Grabber ATX tires last friday (315/75R16)...having them delivered to local Walmart in Post Falls Idaho, paid 203.12 each + 6% sales tax. Wally's had the best price around here, even better price than my own dealership I work for could get for me, from the local ATD tire distributor warehouse. I'll try to mount them up by next weekend. Even being an old man, I still get excited about truck stuff.

Got my ATX's mounted up last Thursday (315/75R16). Balanced very well with anywhere from 35-70 grams per tire, set all tires to 44psi. Smooth riding and great steering with no wandering. Ran it up to 90+ and no shake, smooth as can be. Will try to post pics later, gotta run to work now.

Harry, How's the noise and vibration?
They are quiet for an all terrain tread, just a very slight hum, almost unnoticeable. You can slightly feel the tread blocks at slower speeds, but no shake, in other words its a more aggressive tread design than say my old firestones, and highway or high speeds they are smooth and track straight and steer very well. I've adjusted my tire pressures a bit, running 48 psi front and 44 psi rear, this is unloaded for normal day use. I can't wait for the snow to fly and see how they do, so far we have had a bunch of rain and they do well in the wet. When we finally do get snow and ice I will post more pic's.

ATx snow pics attached below....been a slow start to winter, but now were getting really cold weather and snow with more to come...the ATx's have worked better than I expected, they clean out well and stay pliable in the cold, even 5F temps
