Open Country U/T has been developed to satisfy owners of a wide variety of contemporary luxury Pickups and SUVs requiring quiet and comfortable ride, stable handling capabilities, and low fuel consumption in urban type of road operations. With its purely functional tread design and special silica tread compound the Open Country U/T has accomplished its design goal of low pattern noise, improved fuel consumption, excellent handling and braking performance on both wet and dry road conditions.
Optimized Pattern Arrangement
Approriate block size distribution for improved ride comfort and lower pattern noise.
Five Variable Pitch Pattern
Pattern noise reduction.
Dense serration on the groove wall for pattern noise reduction.
Good cornering performance due to increased lateral block stiffness.
Helps to prevent irregular wear.
The Grabber HTS guarantees great driving fun off-road and on firm surfaces. Innovative tread pattern design from General Tire ensures the perfect synthesis of comfort, performance and durability. This tire has a powerful grip and reacts in an optimal way to all surface demands in the most varied weather conditions. The reduced rolling resistance minimises wear and fuel consumption.
Born from competition but adapted for the highway, this technology provides even treadwear for longer mileage and confidence in challenging conditions.
High performance in extreme conditions and track holding on asphalt. DURAGEN technology uses the latest advances in technology. The tread ensures high performance off-road and tracking stability on asphalt.
Outstanding steering precision. The flexibly responsive groove geometry and stabilising tread bands anterior to the shoulder area ensure the Grabber HTS sits firmly and safely on the road and exhibits outstanding steering precision.
Improved traction and reduce aquaplaning risk. Water-repellent lateral grooves constantly channel water away, improve traction and overcome the fear of aquaplaning.
Short braking distances, improve acceleration and steering performance on slippery ground. Optimised longitudinal grooves shorten braking distances and improve acceleration and steering response on slippery surfaces.
Reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The even tread pattern with high-tech contour reduces fuel consumption and thus CO2 emissions.
5-Rib All-Terrain Design: The modern all-terrain design is engineered to provide outstanding performance in both on-road and off-road driving applications. The A/T3 tread pattern exploits a combination of features specically suited to provide solid all-terrain performance, superior all-season traction, excellent stability, confident handling and reliable tread wear.
Broken Centre Rib: The broken centre rib improves soft surface traction without sacrificing handling.
Dual Draft Tread Element Walls: The dual draft angles on the tread element walls aid in reducing stone retention, stone drilling and assist in cut and chip resistance.
Lateral Groove Protectors: Serrated steps in the lateral grooves of the intermediate tread rib reduce the chance of stone retention and stone drilling.
The Grabber HTS is General Tire's Highway All-Season light truck tire developed for the drivers of crossover and sport utility vehicles, as well as pickup trucks and full-size vans. The Grabber HTS was designed to combine style, comfort, durability and performance in a tire that offers pleasant road manners and a long life, in addition to year-round traction, including in light snow.
The Grabber HTS features General Tire's Eco-Ride tread compound to improve fuel economy molded into a specially engineered symmetric tread design featuring an enlarged contact patch and General Tire's Stabilink system of connecting bars that increase circumferential stability to enhance braking, acceleration and cornering.
Response Grooves provide directional guidance for improved steering and Hydro Channels eject water from between the tread and road to increase hydroplaning resistance while three types of sipes promote traction in dry, wet and wintry weather. The tire's internal structure includes twin, ultra-high tensile steel belts to provide brute strength while an internal cushioning system isolates the vehicle from road vibrations for a smoother ride.
'Superior on-and-off-road capabilities and rugged all-terrain performance.'
The EfficientGrip is the long-lasting tyre that saves you fuel without sacrificing performance.
Fuel-saving and environmentally friendly. Save on petrol and leave a smaller carbon footprint with the EfficientGrip, featuring FuelSaving Technology. Combining a lightweight structure with an advanced tread compound, the EfficientGrip needs less energy to make it roll. The result is lower fuel costs – and CO2 emissions – on every journey.
Long lasting. The EfficientGrip gives you more mileage between tyre changes. Its silica tread compound keeps the tyre working for longer, saving you money.
Better braking on wet roads. With a unique tread surface and a blade arrangement that sheds water, the EfficientGrip offers better wet performance and shorter braking distances than other tyres in its class.*
Quiet, comfortable ride. Enjoy comfortable journeys thanks to the noise-reducing block design.
Introducing the EfficientGrip from Goodyear, the tyre choice for reduced fuel consumption without reducing other performances. It has the great handling and braking qualities you'd expect from a Goodyear tyre, while providing excellent mileage and reduced fuel consumption due to its outstanding rolling resistance. The new EfficientGrip with its FuelSaving Technology provides enhanced driving performance while also doing its bit for the environment - and at the same time, your wallet! The Goodyear EfficientGrip has been independently tested by the German Testing and Certification Company TÜV SÜD Automotive which measured the advantages* of EfficientGrip over 4 leading competitors.
Quiet ride TUV Claims Independent performance tests run by TÜV SÜD Automotive, the German testing and certification company, show that the new Goodyear EfficientGrip performs exceptionally well: TÜV SÜD Automotive Test results: 49% better mileage (free or non driven axle)* 13% better rolling resistance* 8% better mileage (driven axle)* 2% shorter braking distance on wet and dry roads* 2% better wet handling * 1.9% lower fuel consumption* *Compared to the average performance of 4 leading competitors. Tested by TÜV SÜD Automotive in March 2009, Tire Size: 205/55R16, Test Car: VW Golf, Report # 76236753.
