General Truck Tire Grabber Oa Wide Base

General Truck Tires’ all-position Grabber OA Wide Base tire is available in size 445/65R22.5 for fleets operating in severe-service and construction applications such as fire service, waste hauling and concrete mixing. The Grabber OA (Off Road, All Position) Wide Base, designed for super-single fitment for steer and trailer positions, is designed to provide high carrying capacity and has a reinforced shoulder to add protection against curbing and abrasions.

The tire is designed to carry up to 12,800 pounds in a super-single fitment, and its 21/32nds of tread depth, coupled with a cut- and chip-resistant tread compound, helps extend tire life. The deep grooves in the tread elements and an aggressive pattern help improve traction on soft soil and muddy roadways. The thick undertread also resists casing penetrations from stones and other debris often found in offroad applications, allowing for multiple retreads. Additional sizes (385/65R22.5 and 425/65R22.5) are scheduled for introduction in 2011.
