I'm going to be getting new tires for my Jimmy after I replace the engine with one that's a little less used. I'm looking at either Goodyear Wrangler RT/S (highway/all-season) or General Grabbers (on/off-road). Tirerack has them for about a $10 difference. The Grabbers are more, but I'd get the warranty on the Wranglers which isn't offered on the Grabbers. The warranty would put them at almost exactly the same price. I can drive to South Bend where the company is located so shipping won't be an issue. Which tires would you go with? The Grabbers are looking to be the way to go based on reviews and what I want out of them. I do a some off roading and I have the Wranglers right now. They do a decent job, but I have had some off road traction issues with them.

Well sell the grabbers at the shop I am at right now. And a few others shop I been at. I have used them myself. They are great for the money. I say. And just like any other tire keep up with the rotates. And you will get a long life out of them.

Thanks. I'm pretty sure that's what I'm going to go with. I'm going to be tempted to get a Grabber for the spare on the back too, just to have them all the same. That would probably be a total waste of money though because my spare is in great shape and I don't rotate the spare in when I rotate the tires because, although it's a full size, it's on a different rim and it would look dumb.
