A summer tyre with SUV-dedicated robustness and lower rolling resistance
With the new Grabber GT Plus, off-road 4×4 tyre specialist, General Tire is launching an innovative summer tyre for SUVs and 4×4 vehicles. Drivers who opt for this tyre will experience what the Plus in the name promises: a marked improvement in performance in all areas affecting economy and safety. By way of example, the tyre developers have managed to reduce the rolling resistance of the Grabber GT Plus by a substantial 12 percent compared to its proven predecessor, while at the same time achieving five percent more mileage. This is even more remarkable, given that they have also succeeded in delivering a tangible boost in wet-weather performance. On the EU tyre label, all Grabber GT Plus products show A-class performance for wet grip. On dry roads, the Grabber GT Plus offers substantially shorter braking distances, improved handling performance and the EU label noise category will enjoy a 17% improvement over its predecessor.
