GEN­ERAL GRABBER AT3

LRO (UK) - - Used & Abused -

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!
