    After alot of searching I have put a set of 4 General Grabbers on my fullsize 94 Blazer. Major improvement in the ride over the Wrangler RT/s. Wrangler RT/s tires came with the truck when I ordered it in 94 and I had in the past replaced the tires with the same model over the years. This time the Wrangler RT/s tires were unavailable.

    Noise is significantly reduced, with my new General Grabbers and overall the truck has a much more fresh ride. I am interested in what effect the new tires will have on mpg.
    Well worth the price!

    Whenever you go from a passenger street tire to an offroad type tire you decrease MPG. For instance using a passenger tire on a Tahoe or Blazer vs a Mud Terrain. You increase the size of the tire and increase to a more aggressive tread you decrease MPG. But I wouldn't worry about it as the difference is going to be negligible. If it is even measurable. When you go to a slightly more aggressive tread you have pro's and cons. If you drive offroad you have gains there. You may lose a bit in street performance and MPG's.....There are always trade offs. It all depends on what you are after. If you want the best MPG's then consider a passenger tire IF you have a 1/2 ton and your vehicle is rated for it.
    Which Grabber did you get? There are like 8 different grabbers????
    I would be very surprised that they would be quieter than a passenger tire like the Wrangler RT.
