    I've had 2 sets of Generals in the past, and have been generally unimpressed. The first was a set of Grabber MT's, and all 4 started seperating within less than 6 months. The second set was on a C-30 Dually, and these too seperated in a short period (ripping off the right rear fender in the process).

    Sergio,

    Yes, I had the Cepek MCIIs a few years ago, in 35''. They were great off road, really good traction and seemed to be tough (never had any punctures). They wore decent on the street, not good, but not bad either. My major gripe with them was that they tended to "vibrate" when coming to a stop or at slow speeds, really got annoying, and got worse as they wore down.

    The General Grabber is the SAME tire, in fact I heard that General made them for Cepek, so I would go with that one if you are gonna buy 'em, they are always cheaper. I went back to BFG Muds and am glad I did, just a better tire all around...
