I'm considering grabbers for my next tyres.
Herd good things from tyre shops about them but maybe they have a better mark up on them.
In saying that they are one of the top sellers in the us and for the price I recon you can't go wrong.
Check out the general grabber srl

They look awesome and seriously considered getting them but at $360 a tyre I could not justify them as I can get the Grabber AT2'S at $270

So got the tyres fitted yesterday and my initial thoughts are I love these tyres, feels more like a 4be now and not so much a car and that is partially due more road noise and a little harsher ride (which i don't mind). Unfortunately driving home last night from suncorp some f#?k head in a hilux decided to side swipe the front end of my car and then blame me. .
So apart from panel damage I will need a new front left tyre. Anyway I'll post a pic of the tyres tomorrow for who are interested

Cheers Justo
