My first set of 4 General Grabber HTS lasted over 60k miles replacing the stock Dunlop tires which barely got 25k miles. I'm sure the 2nd set of 4 General Grabber HTS tires will do just as well as the first. I highly recommend these tires and feel comfortable saying so.

I usually buy continental tires, but on an 11 year old car that is mostly for station driving it wasn't worth it. Did some research and found out these are actually made by continental. The are basically just as good, but for less money. Good handling wet and dry, good even wear so far, no complaints at all.

My wifes SUV is on the second set of these and we both love them. One of the best all around tires I've bought, end has decent treadwear. There is no such thing as a great 70,000 mile tire. Any tire that lasts that long is gonna be so hard with very little traction.

I love my new tires!! What a difference it has made as I've traveled snowy/icy roads in upstate New York as well as in heavy rains. In all cases, the traction has been superb. The noise level is not bad at all and driving has been wonderful. Thank you! I will definitely buy these tires again!!

These tires ride very nice for a SUV tire. Although I feel that General Tire changed the recipe for this tire and they are not as good as my first set of these tires I bought. The first set gave me better mileage and a softer quieter ride then this second set. All in all this is one of the best tires for the money in this class of tires.

have driven the tires through the best part of a central new york winter(oswego county),and have had no problems at all.The vehicle is driven daily on snow covered and icy roads and I have found the tires to be surefooted.I am anxious for the weather to improve so that I can check my gas mileage against my O.E.M. tires.

I live and work on Long Island and bought these for the wet traction as well as moderate snow. I put about 250 highway and 50 city miles a week on my car. If they do as well or better than my original contitracs I'll be satisfied.

I am enjoying my 4 new General Grabber HTS tires from Mavis Tire for my Toyota Rav4. They handle better that expected in the snow. I live in the Albany, NY area and although it's not Buffalo, we get our share of snow and ice. So far the Grabber HTS tires have far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend these tires to friends and family that are looking for dependable all-season tires that actually work excellently in the snow. PS... 4 Wheel Drive doesn't hurt either ;-)

I am very satisfied with the overall performance of the tires. However, at high speed (70+ MPH) the front end shimmies and the steering wheel vibrates quite a bit. I am in Florida now and plan on bringing it in to Nissan to have it checked out. My old tires never caused this!

Seem to be much better than the OEM Grabber AW's. Hopefully they get the same type of treadwear. I will report back on their snow capabilities after the winter. I felt the AWs were fair at best, so I am hoping these are better.

I replaced the stock Goodyear Wranglers, which were the worst tires I have ever owned, with the Grabbers. It is like night and day, especially in the ride comfort and noise level, as the Grabbers are smooth, responsive and are very quiet compared to the Wranglers. I have driven on both light and deep snow and the traction for both is good, yet not great.

Overall, this an excellent tire with all around good performance and as of this point, I would definitely buy them again.
