NEW ORLEANS — Continental Tire the Americas has introduced the next generation General Grabber all-terrain tire, the A/TX, which will replace the A/T2 in the Grabber lineup.
The Grabber A/TX, made available March 1, is described as an aggressive all-terrain tire that provides off-road capability and durability with on-road performance.
"The Grabber A/TX is designed for the all-terrain enthusiast who demands off-road capability balanced with on-road performance," said Travis Roffler, director of marketing for General Tire.
The tire features "aggressive" styling with raised solid white letters and offers year-round traction for all weather conditions, he added.
The Grabber A/TX complements the less aggressive Grabber APT, unveiled last year, and adopts the more aggressive Grabber X3's sidewall styling, Conti said.
The tire features DuraGen Technology for even wear with cut and chip resistance; traction notches for added grip in dirt, snow and loose surfaces; stone bumpers to help release stones and debris; Comfort Balance Technology with a tread cushioning system and an acoustic tread pattern for a quieter ride; and Stabiltread Technology with a larger footprint and optimized pattern stiffness to promote even wear and long tread life.
The tire carries the Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake winter traction symbol on all of its 40 sizes and is studdable.
The tire will be available in 27 LT-metric sizes in 15- to 20-inch rim diameters; 10 flotation sizes in 14- to 20-inch rim diameters; and three metric sizes in 16- to 20-inch rim diameters. The tire carries a 50,000-mile treadwear warranty on flotation and LT-metric sizes.
