Aloha ,
Iím having a hard time finding a 27x8.5 14 inch general grabber at2 tire for my 84 vanagon. Has anybody ever tried atx as a replacement ? I have 3 good at2 tires and really donít want a different tire. I live on Maui and the shipping is insane from some suppliers I found a at2 from Morris off-road but they want 199 to ship f that !
Mahalo for the help

I wouldn't run 3 and 1, but you could order 2 and put the 2 newer ones on the front (or back if low traction driving is a regular thing for you.)

Keep the 3rd used good one as a spare tire.

https://simpletire.com/hankook-vantra-ltra18tires I purchased these this year and I have been very pleased. I kept checking the price because it fluctuated from as low as 60 to 115. I think I bought them at 76/apiece and had them installed at a firestone location.

You can see if the shipping is high to Maui, I had a good experience with simple tire

General Grabber ATX is very similar to AT2, some difference in the design of shoulder and sidewall, may be rubber compound but not sure.

I have a 2WD tintop van with AT2 all around, on a trip one tire had a severe damage on the sidewall and replaced it with an ATX (can't find AT2)... no problem since 2 years ago... I run a match pair in the front...

Aloha,
Ended up just getting a pair of grabber atx. 14 inch off-road tires are getting hard to find. May have to go to 15 inch tires next time around. Got free shipping from amazon and signed up for the credit card and got 70.00 off the price. I think I paid about 75.00 a tire.
