The Grabber HTS guarantees great driving fun off-road and on firm surfaces. Innovative tread pattern design from General Tire ensures the perfect synthesis of comfort, performance and durability. This tire has a powerful grip and reacts in an optimal way to all surface demands in the most varied weather conditions. The reduced rolling resistance minimises wear and fuel consumption.
Born in the USA, General Tire offers products for all types of vehicles, for all seasons and all terrains
High performance in extreme conditions and track holding on asphalt

Duragen™: Ultra high strength steel belts, micro-fiber casing reinforcements, and a broad tire contour
Adaptive Performance: Response Grooves™, Stabilink Bars™ and three kinds of siping
Comfort Balance: Tread cushioning system and noise-capturing pockets
Eco-Ride: The latest generation fuel efficient tire compound
Born from competition but adapted for the highway, this technology provides even treadwear for longer mileage and confidence in challenging conditions.
High performance in extreme conditions and track holding on asphalt. DURAGEN technology uses the latest advances in technology. The tread ensures high performance off-road and tracking stability on asphalt.
Outstanding steering precision. The flexibly responsive groove geometry and stabilising tread bands anterior to the shoulder area ensure the Grabber HTS sits firmly and safely on the road and exhibits outstanding steering precision.
Improved traction and reduce aquaplaning risk. Water-repellent lateral grooves constantly channel water away, improve traction and overcome the fear of aquaplaning.
Short braking distances, improve acceleration and steering performance on slippery ground. Optimised longitudinal grooves shorten braking distances and improve acceleration and steering response on slippery surfaces.
Reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The even tread pattern with high-tech contour reduces fuel consumption and thus CO2 emissions.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

11.02.2015fromEddie HAve these tires on both a 2000 Expedition and a 2000 Excursion. Both have NO tread left at 22,000.
20.06.2013fromG I have been a big fan of General tyres for years especially UHP's BUT the HTS is a very good tyre design and an excellent choice for all year round, UK roads but let down by the quality of manufacture and especially the tyre supplier as 2 of the 4 tyres could not be balanced correctly even after 3 balances at 3 different places! All garages suggested a manufacture defect but the tyre seller (mytyres.co.uk) were 100% useless when it came to answering my concerns and exchanging them so i just have a truck whose wheel vibrates at certain speeds, JOY!
28.04.2013fromeric klock They,MY TIRES split from the inside behind the tread , the shop told me they were unrepairable a 3/4 inch l shaped rip .The other day i came out and found the other front tire Completely flatened .. the same condition , i got rid of the of the tires when i was told by professionals that they were finished ,,, appearently there was a protocal i was supposed to follow and didnt the girl i spoke with told me id be reimbursed for the two bad ones within 48 hours back in my bank account,THATS NOT HOW another department handled this issue ,within your company. i run a painting company can afford to be down by not having good tires to run on the road with . i had to go out and get others so i could run my business since your general grabbers didnt hold up
22.04.2013fromJesse Great until the tire just failed on a normal highway drive. Side wall blew causing serious damage to the rim. Had to replace everything. I ahve another Durango and will probably put a different brand on....should have never left Goodyear!
