    I have the original Red Letter Grabbers on my Gen 1 and I am considering the black sidewall Grabber X3s for my Gen 2. Can someone who has them compare how loud they are when driving on the highway vs the BGF OEM or Toyo MTs?

    Here they are on an ADD bumper Gen 2.

    I upgraded fro the originals to the X3's a couple weeks ago. I love them. They're quieter than the Toyo MT's I've had before but they aren't as quiet as the originals were. I barely notice them, my exhaust is too loud.

    Side note, if you're getting generals, you gotta get the red letters! They're just too sexy

    My Gen 1 is black, so I agree they looked great on a blacked out Raptor! However, I went with Magnetic on my Gen 2, so I am not so sure they will look as good with that color.

    I am looking at the Fuel Trophy's which are black with a gray ring to give the tires/wheels a little pop. Plus, I heard the gray ring almost matches the Magnetic color perfectly...

    I’m running X3’s and IMO they are on the quiet side for a fairly aggressive tread. They do better on wet pavement than the old grabbers did too.

    I went to x3s 3 weeks ago and have been very happy with them so far. They do not seem loud at all as compared to original ko and ko2s I last ran for 2.5 years. Of course I did just take off my winters which were studded Nokian Hakkapeliitta LT2 so that might also be why they sound quieter. They are a lot better for traction on wet pavement compared to the original ko tires. I go out in less then 2 weeks to try them out off road so will see how they do then. Another member (scarrjack) switched to them last year and was very impressed with them on wet pavement, dirt, gravel and mud/clay areas we went on.

    I wonder how the red letters would look on terrain...

    We have used the X3's on our Raptors and Tow Pigs. Just like other tires, if you keep up with rotation they are pretty quiet for a "MT" classification. We have also gotten 50k miles plus on the tires we havent absolutely abused! We have installed them on a bunch of customers trucks with great success as well. Hope this helps.
