    Default General Grabber AT2s on my '04 XC70

    Hey guys! First of all, I'm brand new to this forum, so... wazzup niggas

    Secondly, I wanna get some decent bigger off road/snow tires for my '04 XC70. I've seen several people with General Grabber AT2s on their XCs, and I really like the way they look - and I've also seen nothing but awesome reviews for the tires. Here's the issue - I've gone to several tire retailer sites, but almost all of them give me the middle finger when I try to find a set that fits my car, which is strange considering I've seen like 2-3 XC70s ('03-'07 body style) with those tires. One thing I've noticed, though, is that the majority of these have Tellus wheels, while I have a set of Xenias on mine. Does that make a difference? Aren't they the same size?

    Secondly, I wanna get a set of mudflaps/splash guards, front and rear if possible. Any pointers?

    Sorry if I rambled. Coffee and ADHD don't go well together.

    Cheers!

    Haha. Ice is about all we get here. I AM moving to Colorado in September though, where snow is quite plentiful, so I think these tires (or something similar) are necessary.

    If you're in Colorado, do yourself a favor and get four dedicated winter tires. Real winter tires perform dramatically better than all seasons in snow and on ice.
