General Tire's new Grabber X3 is included in its new sales promotion.

Fort Mill, SC – General Tire’s new Grabber X3, the highly-anticipated new entry into the mud-terrain segment, is now available in tire stores. The X3 is the latest tire in the popular Grabber family of light truck tires. The new Grabber X3 takes extreme terrain to the power of three.  The mud-terrain tire has been designed to provide extreme performance in mud with a unique optimal void and self-cleaning pattern, extreme performance in dirt with superior grip and stability and extreme performance on rock with excellent adhesion and cut/chip resistance. With bold and aggressive styling, the Grabber X3 is sure to reinforce General Tire’s off-road DNA.

Travis Roffler, director of marketing for General Tire, understands what off-road enthusiasts demand in a tire and he feels confident that the new Grabber X3 will exceed their expectations.

“Our team put in over three years of research and development to get the tire to this point,” stated Roffler.  “We feel very confident that it will provide the performance needed and expected in extreme terrain.  We’re beyond excited to get this X3 out into the market to compliment the already strong line-up of off-road tires that General is known to offer,” stated Roffler.
