Performance tire for light truck, SUV and crossover vehicle applications, offering a quiet ride and even wear.

The General Tire Grabber™ UHP for light trucks, SUVs and crossover vehicles, has been adapted to deliver exhilarating performance.   And while the tire emphasizes traction, handling and control, it also delivers a remarkably quiet, comfortable ride.

 

Category:  Light Truck/Performance

 

Available Sizes:  15” – 24” with aspect ratios ranging from 35 to 70.

 

Features & Benefits:  The Grabber UHP uses General Tire's second-generation, ultra-high performance silica tread compound molded into a directional tread design that features wide shoulder blocks on top of an optimized contour to combine responsive handling with exceptional wet and dry traction. Advanced sound reduction technology and continuously varying groove angles work together to reduce noise and deliver an impressively quiet ride. 

 

The Grabber UHP’s V-shaped tread design delivers impressive control in wet driving conditions. The directional tread pattern and high void ratio work to effectively sweep water away from between the tire’s contact patch and the road surface -- to reduce the possibility of hydroplaning and improve wet grip.  The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by a spirally-wound jointless nylon cap ply, on top of polyester body plies, to combine responsive handling and cornering stability with high-speed durability.

 

Speed Rating: H, T, V, W
