Has anyone had any experience with these tires? TireRack.com has them for $104 each and they look like a decent tire and have decent reviews. Just wondering what all of you thought.

Sorry late to the party,
had a set on an old s-10 blazer, basic generic lt tire. I think I got aobut 30k out of them before I had to replace. Wasnt impressed with them off road but they were fine for a street tire.

Are you 100% sure that they were General Grabber AT2's and not just another model of General Grabber? The AT2 tire isn't a very old model...

FWIW, the generic/cheap tires tend to be 4 ply body, two ply sidewall, if you look at the specs listed on the sidewall. Just that alone makes me think they will not be as durable (off road) as a comprbly sized tire with more plys. They still could be a good value for the $$$ though.

Fairly clean generic of the BFG AT ko. I'd look for something with a more modern tread design, personally.

Had some General Grabber AT's (not the 2's) on my 87 toyota 4wd pickup - bigest POS tires that I've ever had - couldn't wait to wear them out so I could replace them. Had a hell of a lot of sidewall flex - felt like crap on the road.

General MTs have had issues with weak sidewalls in the past. Don't have any experience with the ATs off-road. For about $30 more per tire (assuming you're looking at 285s), you can get Nitto Terra-Grapplers, which are probably a better tire than the Generals.

I PM'd you back already but I'll post up here too.

I wussed out on the Grabber's and got 285/75/16 BFG A/T's instead.

Next set of tires will probably be M/T's of some sort (Hankook, Kuhmo, one of the "cheaper" good brands), and maybe in 35's.
