In my experience a very capable all round tyre.

Lee and I had a day out in North Wales with 2 Pinzgaurs and went everywhere they went wearing GG AT2's.

Big difference to my new boots that you can see here halfway down the page on link below

I'm going to keep the new Maxxis for off road weekends and use GG's for on road every day.

In short, buy them!!

Hope that helps

Cheers Rich

Depending on the tyre size you may need to make some adjustments to the front wheel arches and rear swinging arms, not sure about spacers.

We have GG ATs (not AT2s) fitted to 15 Mefros on our 14" Syncro. 215/75/15s

They are great on the road and will be put through their paces at Mendips this weekend (sunday only :( :( )

We will also play with tyre pressures a little to see what difference it makes.

I'm also running 215-75-15 GG AT2 on 15 inch Mefros. Had no problem off road on the weekend, though I reckon if you're going serious mud-plugging, you might need a more open tread. Otherwise, I'd say they are a very capable multi-purpose tyre.

They performed superbly during mondays lanes, even in the wet and very muddy steps section which I thought we would struggle on.

Absolutely fine during the lanes, but also great on the motorway. A good all rounder.
Very happy indeed.

I bought new boots for Helga because the side walls had perished on my Grabbers. Without mentioning anything I asked my trusted tyre man his thoughts and he said "They are great for tread but the side walls tend to go first"
I went with Wranglers and they are fabulous
