Hanover, August 2020. General Tire is further expanding the Grabber X3 line-up. The tire brand with its American heritage now offers a total of 38 versions of this off-road specialist, nine of them with red sidewall lettering.
“The latest additions to the range starting this fall include the LT 265/60 R 18 size,” says Matthias Bartz, Business Development Manager, General Tire EMEA. “This fits a number of key models in the pick-up segment, like the Ford Ranger, VW Amarok, Nissan Navarra NP 300 and Jeep Wrangler. With these new products we now have one of the widest ranges of off-road tires on the market and can equip virtually any SUV for off-road outings.”
In the Grabber X3, the American tire brand has developed an SUV/all-terrain model for both on- and off-road use. The emphasis, though, is clearly on off-road applications with an 80/20 off-/on-road weighting. To help them meet demanding specifications, the development engineers at General Tire came up with three main technologies: Extreme Mud (X Mud) for maximum traction in deep mud, Extreme Dirt (X Dirt) for driving on gravel, and Extreme Rock (X Rock) for mastering rocky terrain. The Grabber X3 is available for 15- to 20-inch rims, while all sizes of this off-road specialist are approved for speeds of up to 160 km/h.
