FORT MILL, S.C.—Continental Tire the Americas L.L.C. introduced the General Grabber APT, an all-purpose-terrain tire designed specifically for on-road, off-road and snow performance.
The Grabber APT is positioned in a spot that was not filled in the current Grabber product portfolio, the tire maker said, and assumes a position in between the current all-terrain Grabber AT2 and the highway-terrain Grabber HTS60.
The tire blends all-terrain, off-road capability with on-road performance designed for all weather conditions, Conti said.
"We think this new 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," said Travis Roffler, General Tire's director of marketing. "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 tire features Comfort Balance Technology which provides a cushioned tread that absorbs road disturbances for a more comfortable ride; grooves in the tread that angle away from the center grooves to help dissipate sound which provides a quiet ride; StabiliTread Technology to promote even wear and longer tread life via even pressure distribution and a robust tread compound; and DuraGen Technology that offers high strength construction for durability in off-road situations and delivers cut-and-chip performance on rough surfaces.
The Grabber APT is available in 26 replacement, mostly metric, sizes ranging from 16- to 22-inch rim diameters. Two additional sizes are OE fitments for the Nissan Titan.
The tire comes with a 60,000-mile limited treadwear warranty and a Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake certification. Sidewall styling is available in black and outline white letter.
