General Grabber UHP Tire Review & Rating
The General Grabber UHP is General Tire’s high performance summer model that is designed to provide a high level of traction and grip to go with better overall ride comfort. Engineered for sport trucks and SUV’s, the UHP focus is all about performance.
General uses a 2nd generation silica tread compound that is matched up with a directional tread pattern to increase dry and wet traction. Wide shoulder blocks with multiple edges combine with unique V-shaped grooves to enhance dry pavement traction and cornering grip, which is an area that this tire excels in.
On wet pavement, the V-shaped grooves also work to evacuate water from under the tread. The results are better handling and grip, as well as reducing the risk of hydroplaning. This is another area where this tire does quite well.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are reinforced with a jointless wrapped nylon for added strength and durability throughout the speed zone. They also promote more even tread wear and a longer lifespan. General has sizes available from 16-24 inches to fit most any application. T, H, V and W-speed ratings are also available.
- Outstanding traction on dry or wet pavement
- Cornering grip and steering response are excellent
- Ride is smooth and comfortable
- Aggressive good looks
- Good value for the money
- Tires have been noisy for some drivers as they wear down
- Not suited for winter driving conditions
These General UHP tires provide some of the best straight line and cornering performance of any street SUV or truck tire you’ll find available today. You’ll love the grip they give, and the ride is surprisingly comfortable for this type of high-performance tire.
We would advise against driving these when winter rolls around if you live in a part of the country that sees any snow because traction is not good. Then again, this is not a winter tire in the least. It’s designed to provide high performance on dry or wet road surfaces, and to that end it does a great job of it.
Overall, this is one of the top high performance street tires on the market for trucks/SUV’s. Highly recommended.
