I apparently never posted mine. 225/55/17 Bridgestone Potenza RE92As on '11 WRX wheels. Insanely quieter and more comfortable than the 215/65/16 Grabber AT2s that they replaced.

It's been a few years for me, but I ordered/bought mine from a physical Big O tires store.

yeah. I tried Big O and they show nothing in an AT tread in that size anymore...

I checked every local place I could find, and nothing, so I ended up ordering some Geolandars from TireRack...

So I'm getting due for some new tires and after going through all the pages and threads I have found that i either want the General Grabbers AT2's or the Yokohama Geo's ATS. My question is which is better I really like the look the AT2's give the baja and price wise there the same I'm just concerned with drop in gas mileage as I drive the highway about 100 miles a week? Also what am I looking at for wearing in the tread in these. I have the geo's ats on my jeep patriot and love them so I'm not to concerned that i won't love them on the baja, just like the look of the generals better.

In the burlington area, just got my baja in dec love it probably the best decision i've made. Looking to add some lights and nice tires but have to unload the snuglid it came with first.

I've got BF goodrich Touring T/A Pro series tires on my baja, they have a fairly aggressive tread, yet amazing handling in all conditions. Bought mine for 94 dollars a piece with a 70,000 mile warranty. I looked at the General Grabbers and they were too expensive for me at the time.

So ended up going with the grabbers, let me just say they give the baja an amazing look, just drove from VT to CO (2,000miles) and didn't really notice much of a noise issue, rode super nice, happy with wear so far and mpg is staying pretty good lost about 2mpg about.

Hey man.

What size grabbers did you go with, and did you keep them on your stock 16's?

I have run 215/70 16 grabbers on my lifted Baja, I think they will fit without a lift , but you will have rubbing when turning.
