GENERAL GRABBER AT3
£135 ●general-tire.co.uk Rating: ★★★★
After a couple of punctures on my Disco 3 (both were cuts on the sidewalls of the original tyres), I wanted a new set that had a combination of off-road capabilities and confident on-road manners.
In my off-road trips across Portugal, I have to deal with a lot of different terrain – everything from gravel to rocks – so a 50:50 tyre with reinforced walls was a must. In the 255/55 R19 size there are only a couple of options here in Portugal but luckily for me the AT3 from General is one of them.
So far, I’ve done 7000 miles with them in all sorts of conditions and they’ve been superb – a great combination of grip and durability on the off-road tracks, as well as low noise and fuel consumption together with very good manners on the road, even in slippery conditions. VERDICT: A strong, capable and excellent all-round tyre, perfectly suited for the vast majority of surfaces. Just what I need!
