Popular General Grabber Tyres history prior to Continental tyres.
General tyres have always been part of the British and American tyre market. They are now part of the Continental tyre group based in Germany, but for many years they held their own in the Worlds tyre market. They originated in Akron by two businessmen W.F.O Neil and W.E.Fouse.
By the time that General tyres were making tyres in 1915. There were more than 300 other companies making tyres. Hence, this was due to the massive increase in road traffic volumes in both Europe and America. Consequently, things were moving at a rapid rate. For this reason, by the early 1920 s and 30 s people were starting to race cars in competitions. Therefore, tyre development started running ahead. General tyres were no different. Because they then decided to make premium replacement tyres. Hence, for the after car market. The first ones from General tyres were bias belted car ones. These tyres became imported into Britain.
General tyres were a very innovative company inventing carbon black latex and oil extended rubber. They secured orders from all the leading truck companies for their great truck tyres.
Popular General Grabber Tyres
The tyres were very modern, and at the outbreak of World War 2, General tyres secured contracts to supply Popular General Grabber Tyres to vehicle manufacturers as original equipment. General tyres became a much sought after business, and it was no surprise that the tyre section of the firm was bought by the German tyre giant Continental tyres. This acquisition took part in 1987 and made Continental the fourth largest tyre company in the World.
One of the main reasons is value for money. My customers tell me that the performance of the two tyre makers is very similar, but the Popular General Grabber Tyres are now a cheaper tyre to buy and so are proving more popular here at the end of 2014.
