Default General Grabber red letter tires, opinions?

How good are the general grabber red letters, tread wear? Mileage warrantee? What are some tires that would compete with these for a low price?

I hadn't heard red letter and low price in the same sentence before.

Are red letters a special tire or something? I have a set of General Grabbers. They have red letters on them. I assume this is the tire you are referring to.

I like mine, but they are very soft. I don't even really know how many miles I have on them. They seem to wear pretty good for being a daily driver.

They are not a mud tire. They are like sex with an 18 year old in sand, it's what they are made for.

First I have never had the General Grabbers. I almost bought a set of 35x12.50 grabbers, but then the tire store said they are one of the heaviest tires in that size and have very soft tread so I opted for KM2s instead. Main issue with them for me was weight, though $40/tire cheaper was almost worth it.

harbor freight if you're that worried about it. Your nearest gas station should allow you to air up. There is no excuse to not be able to wear down. I've driven quite a few miles with 15-17 psi in my tires. I do not recommend high speeds at that pressure though.

How much is a small harbor freight air compressor? I'd rather buy a cheap little air compressor than a brand new set of tires.

Get a cheap co2 tank from an old kegerator, stick a air hose off the regulator and your good to go for next to nothing, right now mine tops out at 60 psi, not enough to run air tools, but can air up a tire, ill be getting a new regulator here soon

I just picked up a scuba tank to do the same thing a few weeks ago
