Testing General Grabber-ATs on Land Rover Freelander 2 in the Snow of Scotland

Testing General Grabber

Testing new General Grabbers- ATs on Freelander 2, Eastern Highlands, Scotland.

Scotland is probably one of the best tyre testing areas of the UK. Hence, you can guarantee that snow will fall on the upper regions of the mountain ranges.

The General Grabber is famous for its many attributes. As expected, the first thing is that the tyres are not noisy on normal tarmac roads. This has surprised many drivers in the past.

This is because the grabbers have a chunky tread pattern, then our customers think that there will be a noise build up, say in summer when the roads are dry. However, this is not so?

On road tests the General Grabber’s  have compared favourably with many of the”so called” road only tyres. Of course, these tyres are a little noisier. However, the sound difference is negligible. The Pirelli Scorpion verde, which is a road tyre comes it at 71DB. Compared to the grabber coming in at 74 DB. As a result, not much difference.

The reason behind the low noise level. Is the Highly-engineered acoustic tread pattern, designed by General tyres. This and the incredible gripping power in extreme weather conditions is why the Grabber is very popular. hence, amongst the SUV and 4X4 tyre fraternity.

Video shows the tread self-cleaning, with snow been thrown from the tread. The side profile of the tyre gives it superiority over other similar tyres, especially when on a steering wheel lock.
