Grabber Mafia - General Grabbers on a VW Bus

ავტომობილები & ტრანსპორტი

This weeks video is a little out of order on the OVTV timeline because I wanted to put some miles on the Grabbers so I could give a good review on how they perform. Lucky for me there was a couple freak snow storms in TX so I had something challenging to drive in. They're fantastic! Wet roads, snow, dirt, mud, dry pavement, they can do it all! The ride is quiet and well mannered on the street and confident in everything else. When combined with the disk brakes this feels like a whole new bus. Sit back and enjoy the easiest "tech" video I've ever done! Thanks to Tires to You Hutto for the superior install and letting me run around your shop with my camera!

    @Old Volks TV today I removed the axles and replaced the rear brake lines. Tomorrow new axles and work on rear brakes. Then the next week new front brakes and master cylinder. Then I’m down to putting the freshly rebuild motor in.

    What were the downsides of rhe tires?

  • Old Volks TV

    Old Volks TV

    თვის წინ

    So far the only down side is that they're huge. It's a tight fit between the tire and the spring plate, but no rubbing that I can see. Also it takes a lot of power to get them moving, I can definitely feel the difference. The reduction boxes and dual carbs on SP manifolds helps with torque though so I'm not worried about hills too much.

    A PO put 15s on my 71 Westy, thinking about getting some grabbers and original 14s myself! How do 14s handle?

    @Old Volks TV that’s good to hear. The fifteens I’m running rub when making sharp turns, so sharp I feel like if I ran 14s it wouldn’t be there.

    So far so good. Quiet on the road and grippy off road. It's a tight fit, but no rubbing so far.

    @Old Volks TV 11 years for me. I still love them! Great snow tire too. Sand, and a little mud. They don't clean out that well though. Quiet on the highway.

    Good seeing the tyre fitter using a torque wrench on the wheel studs, wondering if they actually removed the sticky label fixed to the tread, they don't like doing that here... Greetings from the UK!

    I made sure he used the torque wrench. And he pulled the stickers AND cleaned the white letters. Very professional!

    What size tires did you get? Would this size allow you to put chains on the tires if needed?

  • Old Volks TV

    I've heard that's what the SST guys do. We've tried to fit cables on the grabbers, but it's super tight.

    @Old Volks TV Thank you for answering me. I would be curious about how chains can be used. I might try getting a slightly smaller size as my spares, and get two wheels to carry around with chains on them.

    These are 27x 8.5x 14. Unfortunately there's no room for even cable chains between the tire and the spring plate. We're working on a fix for that tho.
