Grab a Grab­ber GT

NZ4WD - - NEWS -

The Grab­ber GT tyre has ar­rived in New Zealand – and its look­ing like it’s go­ing to be a real win­ner with Kiwi driv­ers. Avail­able in a range of sizes to suit modern SUV and ute fit­ments, the Grab­ber GT from Gen­eral Tire is a truly ver­sa­tile high­way tyre; gen­uinely re­fined on city mo­tor­ways and se­ri­ously ca­pa­ble when you hit the chal­leng­ing and twist­ing roads that never seem to be very far out of town. Founded in the USA over 100 years ago, Gen­eral have been best known in New Zealand for their rugged All Ter­rain and Mud Trac­tion tyre range, so a road-go­ing SUV and ute tyre is a slightly new de­par­ture. But while the GT has ar­rived here rel­a­tively re­cently, it’s al­ready earned its stripes with driv­ers around the world and feed­back so far in­di­cates it’s go­ing to be equally as pop­u­lar in New Zealand. Says the Gen­eral Tire dis­trib­u­tor for New Zealand, “Gen­eral has al­ways de­liv­ered very long tread wear and re­ally good driv­ing con­trol, so we ex­pected that the Grab­ber GT would work well in NZ. But it wasn’t un­til we put them to the test on re­ally chal­leng­ing roads around the coun­try that we re­alised that were on to a real win­ner. We were blown away by the feed­back we re­ceived.” One of the test users who does a reg­u­lar com­mute on chal­leng­ing re­gional roads made spe­cial men­tion of the Grab­ber GT’s per­for­mance in wet con­di­tions, com­ment­ing, “The first thing I no­ticed was how well they hung on in the wet. You ex­pect new tyres to hang on in the dry, but this re­ally sur­prised me. They trans­formed the way the ute han­dled.” Cit­ing com­ments from other test users that noted the GT’s ca­pa­ble road han­dling and very quiet high­way run­ning, Gen­eral Tire’s dis­trib­u­tor is con­fi­dent to rec­om­mend it as a tyre that re­ally gives you driv­ing con­fi­dence, not­ing: “The GT is a re­ally smart-look­ing tread pat­tern that com­ple­ments any modern ve­hi­cle. But it’s the feed­back on its high­way per­for­mance that has us re­ally ex­cited – it re­ally is as good as it looks.” A smart choice whether you’re choos­ing tyre for the ve­hi­cle you drive, or you’re a cor­po­rate fleet man­ager look­ing to keep your driv­ers safer.
