Driving on mostly town for 2 easy going miles
My 2021 Kia Sorrento Hybrid tyres only had 20,000 miles on them. They slipped going over a few wet leaves & worse on wet roads that made me feel very unsafe. I decided to charge 1,100$ worth of these tyres. The difference is amazing!! I have not driven in any snow or ice but plenty of rain. Be aware these tyres WILL take a toll on your gas mileage. I have close to 2,000 miles on them now in both city & hiway miles.. I have lost 5 mpg since having them both city & hiway driving. I can no longer return them for their 30 day return. Other then that, I'm pleased. Although they have excellent sticking power, I will not be replacing them with the same.

Driving on a combination of roads for 30000 average miles
Supplied new with a Kia Sorento which does a lot of towing a 1600 kg caravan. Done 30k miles before needing new. No problems with wet or dry grip or on wet grass. Not noisy. Only drive at normal speeds but handles well in sports mode on twisty roads. Will replace with same.

Driving on mostly town for 1000 spirited miles
Had these fitted on the front axle of my 2011 Kia Sorento 2.2 CRDI. Have done only 1000KM so far but impressed with it's performance. It's stiffer than the Landsail 588 tyres we had on before but still very comfortable. Dry grip is superb and can chuck the vehicle into a corner and turn in is very good. Would definitely recommend for drivers who drive aggressively. Feedback is good but hard to judge on the particular vehicle as it's high mileage (210,000KM) and the steering rack is not healthy. Wet grip is very good but I must say this is from only a drive in the rain on the highway (did not feel any weaving or aquaplaning). Braking feels solid, much better than the Landsails and confidence inspiring. I live in Sri Lanka with a mix of rough and smooth roads. Overall it's a good midrange tyre. Recommended!

Driving on a combination of roads for 42000 easy going miles
A good all season tyre, lasted over 40,000 miles and still around 3mm left. Good in snow but could do with being a bit more comfortable

Writing about the Nexen N Fera RU1 given 60% (235-60-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 12000 average miles
Didn't have much problems with the grip. TC would sometimes kick in when starting harder but they felt safe overall. Wear was disappointing, with one rotation they barely managed to do 20.000km. They still had some depth, but front end tires started to chip away at the end of the second season. They aren't bad tires in terms of grip, but they are still a bit to expensive for their wear. You can get premium tires for not much more and they can last for at least 30-35.000km.

Driving on a combination of roads for 4000 spirited miles
I read the reviews of this tyre and got worried it may be too noisy. I've had them fitted and have had no such issue, in fact they're quieter than the OEM Hankooks my car came with.
Excellent wet road grip and handling. Very happy.

Writing about the General Grabber AT3 given 85% (235-70-17-T)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2000 easy going miles
I've rated them against other AT tyres with my marks out of ten....
I've put them on a 2913 Sorento as the occasional off road trip requires them. AT tyres....I think cheaper ones are so noisy with poor performance there not worth the hassle where as better all terrain tyres just have much better design and testing so using them on the road does not become an ordeal.
On the car were Pirelli Verde on the rear and Nexen on the front. On the road these were great.
While tyres is a subject all sorts of people get up on there soapbox for me its a totally personal choice between what you want,how you drive and what you will put up with.
Me I like all terrains on my SUV I believe at the minimum highway terrain's should be fitted as standard.
First off there well made, I do not think tread looks as good as some others(which matters to some) but they do have a nice sidewall.(no white letters on these)
On the road I do not drive fast and to be honest no massive deterioration in handling in the dry, noise it a tiny bit louder but really no great increase. The one place none road tyres(and this includes HT tyres) struggle is that damp condition after a dry spell where suits lifts oils and grime to create a bit of a slime. Here you notice a little more under steer but no great increase. When occasion I've had the push along a bit again excellence.
These are the best handling AT terrain tyres I've used by a mile....
In the recent snow where I actually went up ion higher ground with a foot plus on the lanes and they were excellent. The car actually stayed in front wheel drive mostly with me actually stopping on fairly steep gradient hairpin and pulling away easily. Braking and cornering were excellent. It obviously never got below -10 and in the UK this is where in my opinion an all season tyre suffices. You do have to obviously cut of traction control as it cuts engine power.
They are 3 peaks mountain snowflake labelled.
Off road apart from some tracks I did misread a grass field. I didn't think it was a boggy as it was or wet as I picked the higher line.....
The tyres were sinking in a good 10", the field was grass and soaking with this being one of the worse conditions for traction with the mud and grass creating a really slimy surface. While it wouldn't just drive out I did need to cut traction control and get the tyres spinning a bit.The tyres totally ejected all mud and grass....
They were probably nearly at the point where I would need to air down, in places it had dropped at least a foot bit it still drove out....Fantastic for an all terrain.
It was between these and the Continental ATR with the AT3 being a bit more aggressive. I would have picked the ATR(obviously Continental own General with General offering a more extreme tyre)
On the Sorento is a 235/65 r17 as standard and I just wanted a little more height.
I did need to replace rear springs anyway but fitted a full set of Eiback Pro which have maybe a 20mm lift.
The AT3 is offered in many more sizes and I fitted 235/70 r17. The tyre has totally exceeded expectations in all areas.
As an initial review it ticks all my boxes so highly recommended for the price(I think I paid about £118 a tyres at Boss tyres)
I think the only thing that would hold some people back is like I said earlier the tread is not as good looking as some which to be fair when people are so concerned how there car looks I think the tyres are a big parts of that.
They still look great and I think my Sorento looks so much better with these on so big thumbs up.
