The new General Grabber APT from Continental Tire the Americas LLC is an all-purpose-terrain tire designed for on-road, off-road and snow performance.

The General Grabber APT is the newest member of the Grabber family of light truck and SUV tires. It is positioned in a spot that was not filled in the current Grabber product portfolio.

Continental says that on the aggressiveness chart, the Grabber APT holds the spot in between the current all-terrain G Grabber AT2 and the highway-terrain G Grabber HTS60. This tire is the perfect blend of all-terrain, off-road capability and excellent on-road performance designed for all weather conditions, according to the company.

Travis Roffler, director of marketing for the General brand, expects the Grabber APT will be a popular tire for those drivers looking for a tire that is mostly driven on the road during the week but can hold its own during weekend adventures. “It offers the best of both worlds with very strong on-road manners but still enough off-road capability to get the job done.”

The new Grabber APT features three exclusive General technologies.

  1. Comfort Balance Technology provides a cushioned tread that absorbs road disturbances for a more comfortable and pleasant ride. Grooves in the tread are angled away from the center grooves to help dissipate sound which provides a quiet ride.
  2. StabiliTread Technology promotes even wear and longer tread life via even pressure distribution and a robust tread compound.
  3. DuraGen Technology offers high strength construction for impressive durability in off-road situations and delivers cut and chip performance on rough surfaces.

The Grabber APT is available in 26 replacement articles in mostly metric sizes of 16 inches to 22 inches. Two additional tires are OE fitments for the Nissan Titan. A 60,000-mile limited tread wear warranty supports the tire along with Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake Certification. Sidewall styling is available in black and outline white letter.
