    I have just recently put General Grabber At3's on my Jimny, I haven't tested them enough offroad to give a proper opinion, but I am very happy so far. They always seem to be at no1 in the tyre tests in the Drive Out, Sa4x4 & Lesuire wheels if that is anything to go by

    https://www.sa4x4.co.za/sa4x4s-giant...ain-tyre-test/

    https://www.leisurewheels.co.za/blogs/15-at-tyres-tested/


    I don't think you can go wrong with them and the price is very competitive

    also have a look at:
    Wrangler AT/SA+ they are pretty much on a par
    Dunlop has also brought out a new tyre the At5, but there isn't much information on it, but it also looks good.

    I had them on my Jimny in 215/75R15.

    Extremely impressed with them. Great offroad. You wont be disappointed.

    They appear to have a larger footprint at various pressures. It basically means that some tyres will need to be deflated to achieve a footrpint that the Grabber has at 2.4bar

    Here is a comparative table I did and which was published in sa4x4..

    I fitted 215/75 R15 Grabber AT3's onto my new Jimny.

    I have done a long trip from Durban to Jhb on both the OEM and the AT3 tyres, as well as some off roading with the AT3's. I've been very happy with the purchase. The AT3's feel a lot more stable on the road and did a great job off road.

    They were also well priced.

    Hi,
    I fitted a set a few months ago. Went from 205/70R15 dueler H/T To 215/75R15 AT3's
    So far I am very happy with the AT3's.
    Pro's
    • Looks awesome .
    • Preforms well on road.
    • Definitely much better on gravel roads.
    • No real off roading done yet .
    • Price is not bad.


    Con's
    • The fuel consumption went down from 12km/l to 11.0km/l on average.
    • Performance is also down a bit but not by much.


    Overall for my application it preforms well so far.

    Any change in the fuel consumption? I can not feel a difference in performance but the fuel consumption suffered a bit, approx 1.0 km per liter heavier on petrol.

    No it didn't. You aren't compensating for the change in tyre size that is screwing with your odo.

    The only way to really check is using a good GPS in trip mode, full up, drive, then fill up again and verify filled amount with GPS odo.

    Completely different situation, in my case the difference in tyre size is 1,5% compared to a tyre size difference of 5,3% for the Jimny 1,3. This was the reason I asked someone with the same vehicle as mine, as the increased footprint and weight of the new tyres will be the biggest influence on the fuel consumption.

    Unfortunately with the Jimny even a small change in tyre size affects the consumption. And yes, I do take the difference in size into account in my calculations.

    I had them fitted from date of vehicle delivery so never really had a chance to compare. With a Front Runner roof rack fitted I am averaging about 8L/100 km.

    I haven’t noticed any performance difference compared to models I drove before I bought the Jimny.

    I've done two days of off roading across multiple terrains. Rocks, gravel, sand, river crossings etc. No deep mud.

    I’ve also done two long road trips from Durban to Jhb and back in a day and they ran very well.

    I really am very happy with them on and off road and would do it again.

    One interesting item is that with these tyres on, my speedometer reading and gps speed reading are almost identical.

    Thank you for the feedback, Yes I did take the change in consideration and monitored it with the GPS.

    Does anyone know where one can get a good price on General Grabbers in Gauteng?

    Everybody still happy with their AT3's?

    I am moving away from Cooper ST Pro to a less aggressive tire for a couple of reasons:
    1. Fuel consumption
    2. Noise
    3. Not really using the MT capabilities at this stage.


    And I cut two ST PRO's in Moz now, but they already have 90 000km on - they are too expensive for I am using it for.

    The Grabber is currently my first choice.
    Everything is a hammer.
    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Then it it a chisel.

    No issues, quite happy with them. I have done some offroading on Sand, gravel and light mud, no issues at all. Pretty happy overall.

    Had them on my Hilux for 10000km now, very impressed. No balance issues, reasonably quiet, decent on and off road. Certainly better on wet tar than the GY Wranglers I had previously .

    I have the LT spec on my bakkie. Have done 35k KM now, puncture free(A first for any of the tyres I have had on my bakkies)

    They are quiet, grippy and wear well. I expect to get 80k KM+ from this set even with a heavy right foot.
