Competition Won – General Tire Grabber tyres winner

Congratulations to Chris Hill, the winner of our General Tire tyres giveaway, he had a set of tyres fitted to his new Toyota Prado VX just before Christmas.

LATE LAST YEAR, Practical Motoring, together with General Tire ran a competition to give one lucky reader a set of General Tire Grabber AT3 or X3 tyres, depending on their vehicle. It was a simple process, readers simply had to tell us about their most recent off-road adventure. We had more than 250 entries submitted and every single one of them was excellent, from weekend escapes to desert crossings; Practical Motoring readers really are an adventurous lot.

But, in the end, the winner of the new set of tyres, drum roll, please, was Chris Hill who told us about his adventures with his brand-new Toyota Prado and learning all about its capability at a 4×4 driver training course, and his subsequent trips on some of the tracks near his home.

Continental Tyres Australia Marketing Manager Russel Stewart said for Australians who enjoy the thrill and adventure of off-road driving, the new range of General Tire’s robust and durable tyres are the key to taking full advantage of our great Australian backyard.

“We know that for most Ute owners and 4×4 driving enthusiasts, capability of a 4×4 tyre is truly important, which is why the Grabber AT3 and X3 range has been tested extensively to ensure safety under all off-road conditions. We are confident that any buyer of these products will truly enjoy what they have to offer,” he said.

A total of 40 sizes will be included in rim diameters ranging from 15-inch up to 20-inch in the Grabber AT3. While the Grabber X3 will come in 20 different sizes, with a rim diameter range of 15-inch to 18-inches.
