Off-road desert racing tires
General Tire landed the top three winning spots in the Best in the Desert Vegas to Reno race on August 23, 2008 with its off-road desert racing tires. General Grabber competition tires got their first win in the Trick Truck class, when Rick Johnson of Team 71 piloted his General Tire Trick Truck to an overall race and class victory. Johnson crossed the finish line more than seven minutes ahead of the competition, and his victory was even sweeter in light of the fact that he started in 17th position. Mike Horner of Synergy Motorsports took 2nd place in Class 8000 competition, and Kent Kroeker of KORE placed 3rd in the full-size production stock class. Designed with a tough, three-ply Duragen-reinforced body construction to stand up to the rigors of off-road conditions, the Grabber also features a newly-developed competition-specific tread compound. In addition, the Grabber name and General Tire logo are prominently featured on the sidewall in red and white letters. The Grabber competition tires are designed in size 37x12.50R17 for class 1, 7S, 7 unlimited, 8 and trophy truck/trick truck. General Tire also has a complete line of Grabber tires for the passenger and light truck market, including the new Grabber HTS, which delivers the perfect synergy of comfort, durability and performance; the Grabber UHP, which sets a whole new standard in performance and ride quality for SUVs, light trucks and crossover vehicles; and Grabber AT2, designed for aggressive all-terrain traction in all weather conditions.
