To be honest, I haven't had them on long enough to really tell. I've had my truck parked most all summer, driving my Metro to and from work, and only recently started packing miles back on it, and the LB7 I had to sell a few months after I put them on...

dcfarm Well I've had mine on now for about 10000km. They are showing wear. If I were to guess though. I would think I should get roughly 40000km out of them. Now I've only run goodyear silent armour pro grade tires before these generals and only gotten 40000km out of them too! That's why I wanted to try something different. Its looking like between the gravel roads I live on and the trailer towing I do (only about 30% of tthe time), I am just gonna have to live with short lived tires. But to say the generals are not as good as the goodyears because they are way cheaper would be a wrong assumption. They are every bit as good a tire as the goodyears, and cheaper.as well!

Now saying that my next tire purchase will be either michelin ms2, toyo at2 or bridgstone revos. I wanna try something with the high mileage warranty because I'm tired of changing tires every 40000km.

Runs2rch The Grabber's are not a bad tire by any means. I ran a set on a half ton. They performed just like BFG all terrains. I was happy with them.

They also got me in and out of fields, and muddy B roads with no problems during hunting season. I liked them so much, I bought another set in the same size for my half ton.

They do put out a little bit of noise on the highway, but it's not noticeable over the exhaust note, only when I'm coasting down hill or to a stop.

I've never run Toyo's, and don't know anyone off the forum that runs or has run them, so I can't give an accurate comparison

LsUtIGeRs Ive had several different brand tires and these toyo's are awesome, 40k on them and I might be able to squeeze another 30k if they dont dry rot first. I have always bought the more expensive tires and I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for. The best tire I have ever had was the bfg km2, could have gotten 80k out of them but they were louder then my toyo at's. I will buy toyo again
