Grabber AT2 vs. Open Country AT2

I'm about to make a decision on future rubbers, and I have narrowed it down to the General Grabber AT2 or the Toyo Open Country AT2 in 35x12.5x20. I already have a good idea on which brand I am going to get. But for S&G's I'll run it by the forum. So what do the guys, who have run either of these tires on their rig, think? Thanks for your insight!

You know this because you ran both the Toyo's and General's?

I have a buddy who put the generals on his dodge and they wore like dog shit. Toyo tires always receive very high customer satisfaction. General's are cheaper than Nittos, BFG's, and Toyo's for a reason.

The grabber's are just the BFG AT look on the cheap. IMO you might not be satisfied with how a A/T looks in a 35" tire

I have run both at this point.

See here:
My new tires

I REALLY like the new pattern and design of the AT2. I "liked" my Generals, but the Toyos have already by far impressed me more in the ~5k miles I have put on them than the Generals ever did. In my opinion 2 completely different scope and quaity of tire.

Unless you "know" a shop that has a set of the 35x12.50x20, you will be waiting until March. I have scoured the country for 2 sets through the wholesalers with zero luck.

Thanks for the info! Are you referring to the Grabbers being hard to get ahold of, or the Toyos?

Toyo. Demand far exceeded the sales expectations on several sizes.

The Grabbers are definitely cheaper, however they also have been scoring some good reviews on the tire websites I've looked at. I'm wondering what tread life is like.

Another point scored for the Toyo's are they start life with 17/32" compared to General's 16/32" in the size I'm looking for, although it's a really quite negligible difference. But the 50,000 mile warranty is awesome compared to General's 00,000 mile warranty.

The back order is nuts!!! OP go with the Toyo Open Country M/T's. Rotated every oil change they will last 40k. I live in So Cal as well. Check out tire crawler.com they are located in Downey. Good pricing and service.

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
