    Default General Grabber X3 muds rotation

    Hi guys.

    I am coming up to 5000km on my new muds. What is the rotation schedule for them? Cross and front to back?

    Love them. No regrets. Quiet on tar, 3 ply tyre and nice tread pattern.

    I have them on my farm bakkie. They do tar, gravel, sand and mountain terrain weekly. 55 000km on the clock and still going strong. I rotate them every 10 000km. Click image for larger version.

    Did you guys notice any change in fuel consumption when changing to these?

    I will be going from Goodyear Wrangler a/t tyres to these.

    From what I could find the 235/85/16 is between 4-7kg heaver than the current 245/70/16, so I do expect a reduction.

    But I do get to lift the diff by almost 30mm in doing so!

    Honestly I couldn't really tell any difference, but I don't really check that carefully.

    For me I love the looks, and the extra grip offroad is epic.
