Initial Review, 2,000 Miles on Tires

If you live in an area where snow isn't a big issue, these are great handling A/S tires. I'm a bit disappointed in winter traction, however. Tread design or compound, not sure which, really doesn't like snow very much. I also think mpg dropped by 3 from the Eagle F1 summer tires that came on this car. If you don't care about that, live where snow is rare and want full dry weather performance in an A/S tire, this is it. Even with AWD and the best ABS system made, my A6 might need a tire change this winter. They were a little scary in the first snow of the season, which wasn't very bad.

Wow. This tire tread looks to be fairly aggressive, and looks like it would probably not be good for the cold and snow. However, that sunflower oil in the compound really keeps this rubber pliable in the cold. In the warmer weather, this tire is smooth, responsive, fairly quiet, with just the slightest hint of vagueness on-center - you really have to be paying attention to notice it. In the snow, you can feel that the tires remain pliable, and that keeps traction even for a tire that does not have very aggressive sipes or grooves for snow. You get very little wheelspin in snow, and letting up on the go pedal or going easy on the clutch keeps the car moving in bad weather. Impressive.



For grand touring tires, these do well on the grand touring front, and respectably well in the cold. Even when it has been in the single digit temps recently, they are still pliable and grip in the slop. Pricey tires, but worth it.

The dry and wet weather performance of this tire is excellent at low temperatures in fact I would say the car handles better than it does on the OEM Continental Run-Flats. The tires are good in light snow and traction is excellent but when snow gets deeper, although the car never gets stuck,the tires do not feel as if they are gripping that well and you have to be careful not to brake too hard or they will slide. The tread pattern is not an aggressive winter tire patten. I have had no problems so far due to the fact I drive on roads that usually get ploughed soon after a snow fall but if I was diring in deeper snow more often I'd get something with a slightly more agressive winter tread and forego some of the really excellent dry and wet wether performance.

I bought this set after reading reviews online and was more geared towards reliability. After getting them installed, I could tell right away how much quieter, responsiveness, and clean (with a notable brand name) looking this set is. I haven't put that much time on these tires and the weather here in KS is pretty unpredictable. I will always have backup tools and stuff for crazy snow/ice days but just to make it home with these tires will boost my confidence. I will re-evaluate again after having some time behind the wheel and going to places where I can really get on them without fear of slipping on ice/snow. It's like driving a new car almost since the tread noise has made it really quiet.

I purchased these Hankook tires based upon the TireRack customer reviews and the TireRack video test summary. I found these tires to be excellent in the short 500 miles for which I have driven on them. The Mid-Atlantic’s unpredictable winter weather have proven to be simply a test for these Hankook tires for which they have passed, graciously. In this week’s time I have driven on dry, wet, snow and ice covered streets and felt confident the entire way. The comfort and quietness was very noticeable over the Dunlop’s these replaced, so quiet I easily find myself exceeding the speed I believe I am traveling. On dry pavement these tires have given positive feedback, track and stick in the turns, and they have been stable to 110mph. I am thoroughly enjoying these Hankook Ventus S1’s and look forward to updating my review after a few thousand more miles.

I have these mounted on a 2013 Mustang GT, with 245front, 275 rear. For the most part, I am very pleased with the tire. My only concern is in wet weather, during spirited acceleration, these will break loose pretty quickly. Not just during active rain, just on wet roads, these will start spinning if I am not careful. Wet braking is very good, and if I had to choose, I would much rather have the tires hold during braking. Having the back tires break loose when you hit third gear on wet roads reduces trust in the tire. I have had other high performance cars and tire, but never one with 420 hp, so that could be part of the problem(?) Tires look great, would buy them again.

The All-Season General AltiMAX RT43 is Number One

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 by Gary Stanley

With its generous treadwear warranty, great ride quality and class-leading handling and traction, the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated) is a customer favorite for tires in the Standard Touring All-Season performance category. In a recent test, we concluded that the tire had impressive traction in both wet and dry conditions, very good handling and reasonable road manners. It finished in first place in our test, "Testing Standard Touring All-Season Tires: Which Tires Strike the Perfect Balance?

The General AltiMAX RT43 is available in a wide range of sizes, making it a great choice for a large variety of vehicles from compact cars like the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, to popular crossovers like the Nissan Rogue. Take a look at what some of our customers are saying about their experience with this tire:

"These are the best all-season tires I've ever purchased (and I've bought probably 15-20 sets of tires for various vehicles over the past 15 years, everything from snow tires to racing slicks). They actually defeat the purpose of my snow tires, as they offer about 8/10th of the snowy driving performance of them. This has to be the best all-season tire on the market. It just can't be beat for the price, performance, comfort and treadwear."  -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 1985 BMW 535i

"Great tire thus far. Not many miles driven but they have already seen the worst of Pennsylvania's weather and potholes. These tires are impressively quiet, comfortable over bumps and potholes. It's near impossible to avoid them all now, and these tire seem up to the worst of them with no harshness at all. Great tire." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2004 Subaru Forester

The General AltiMax RT43 is Leading Its Class

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 by Neal O'Neal

General has hit a home run with their AltiMAX RT43. Although fairly new to the market, this tire has already received great feedback from our customers. The most positive comments have focused around the great ride quality, quietness, wet traction and all-season capability.

Strong all-season capability and a comfortable ride is due to the tire's Twin Cushion Silica Tread Compound that places a high-density all-season compound up top with a low-density foundation compound underneath. A symmetrical tread design helps keep noise down and allows for unlimited rotation options. General’s Anti-Slip Sipe Design Technology increases the number of biting edges to enhance traction on slippery roads. Another great feature is General's Low Surface Abrasion Technology which helps reduce tread distortion as the tire rolls. This results in less road abrasion and ultimately promotes longer, more even treadlife.

Take a look at what some of our customers are saying about their experience with the General AltiMAX RT43:

"I put these tires on because the lightness of the rear of the truck made it slip and slide and break loose on corners when the road was slick. That's all gone now. The unique tread design includes little fish hook like cuts which attracted me to the tread design. My choice was justified. Even with light snow on the roads, I have a confident feeling of total control. I'm telling everyone who will listen what I think of these tires. I will buy them for my other vehicle when it becomes necessary." -- Tire Rack Customer Review, 2001 Toyota Tacoma 2wd

"I drive about 100,000 miles a year. These tires have 60,000 miles on them now. This car has driven all over this region of the U.S. The General AltiMAX RT43 is EXCELLENT in every weather situation I have been in. The tires look to have about 5/32" of tread depth remaining. I rotate them every 10,000 miles. They are very comfortable, handle great, don't hydroplane, are great in the snow and on ice. Absolutely the best "budget" tire I have ever had. I will take these over the Goodyear and Michelin tires I have had any day. I really recommend these tires to anyone." - Tire Rack Customer Review, 2007 Honda Civic EX Sedan

The General AltiMAX RT43 is available in H-, V- and T-speed ratings. Shop by vehicle and see if this great tire is available for your application today!

Initial Review, 10,000 Miles on Tires
March 10, 2014

After 10,000 miles, I'm impressed with these tires. While not as tenacious as studdable snows, these tires dont suffer from the noise issues with which studdable snow tires are burdened. The ride comfort is a fair trade, as these tires still provide very nice light and deep snow grip, and they seem additionally competent on the ice.

This was a tough winter with lots of opportunities to drive in challenging conditions. I drove through deep snow, across hard packed snow, two inch thick ice on the freeway. My Prius tore through it all. 7 plus inches of unplowed snow posed no issue. I drove at over 60 mph on two inch thick ice (just east of Lake Michigan) and found myself laughing at how easy it was.

What's more, and this is why I find myself buying Michelin tires over and over again, the tires are remarkably quiet in the dry. Although I have a separate set of summer wheels and tires (purchased from Tire Rack) I could easily run these tires with few issues. But I won't.

For those of you who drive a Prius or other hybrid, or are simply concerned with the mileage impact, I have found these tires, which are LRR, to be very good. I can easily average over 50mpg with my Prius in the warm, on fair weather tires. With these winter tires, I found my mileage to be closer to 44. How much of the decline is attributable to the tires, and how much is attributable to the cold weather, I cannot be certain. But now that it's a bit warmer, Ive seen my mileage climb back up to 50mpg, even though the winter tires are still mounted.

I would definitely buy these again, and I would recommend them. I hope this review has been helpful.

March 11, 2014

Living in central Alabama, I needed a tire capable of handling a little bit of anything. We get plenty of rain, and the occasional dusting of snow. However, I didn't want to totally compromise dry handling characteristics. This tire fit that bill quite well.

For pure dry grip levels, it's an all-season. Don't expect sports car levels of grip. However, it handles mild spirited driving just fine (even did an autocross or two on these). It doesn't make too much noise either. Treadlife and wear is nice, and appear that these will last most drivers well.

In the wet, they are great. We get some heavy downpours here, and I've always had full confidence hitting even large puddles on the highway at reasonable speeds. Wet traction is well maintained, and very respectable.

What little bit of snow we get (as well as the bit I've experienced with these during my travels out of state) was handled well by these tires. Obviously not a dedicated snow tire, but in light snow, slush, and even patches of ice they remained a solid choice.

If you're looking for an all-around go to tire that you won't have to worry about what the weather will be, at a great price, you won't be disappointed with the Kumho Ecsta 4X!

Initial Review, 8,000 Miles on Tires
March 13, 2014

Just moved to Michigan this year from the south... Surprise! Worst winter in 20+ years. I bought these tires as a possible alternative to dedicated winter tires due to the high mileage my car sees. A lot of other reviewers were claiming 70,000+ miles and that sounded great with a tire that could handle winter weather. (they have the mountain/snowflake on the side) I braced myself for a noisy, bumpy ride as the car came with a Michelin touring tire originally. I can honestly say, these tires are quieter and ride almost as smoothly as the Michelin's. That said, the Michelin's were worn when I replaced them so I don't hold the noise against them. These tires have never left me stuck or stranded and I didn't usually spin or slide unless I was trying to. A few times I had to disable the traction control to let them spin and clear. This was only in slow speed situations like cutting fresh tracks in 8+ inches of heavy wet snow. Not sure you can ask anymore for a longer treadlife all-terrain in my opinion. My biggest complaint in the 8,000+ miles I have had them comes from the fact that they tend to "catch" grooves or seams in the highway which can be unnerving when the road is icy. I noticed it the first day I had the tires and now I have gotten more used to it and it is less of an issue but at first it did get my attention. Overall, I would and already have recommend these tires. Not the best winter solution, not the best off-road solution, definitely not the best for mpg's or handling performance. Just a really good mix of life, traction, and so far low noise.

Overall these tires have performed well above the price range. This is my 3rd set of tire on the car since purchased new. The last set was a set of Goodrich Comp 2's that where wonderful except for the road noise that got loader as the tread wore down. The Hankook S1 on the other hand are quite as a mouse but hold the road like a tiger around corners. In the rain the S1 lets you know there will be no problems if a quick response is required. I find the tires to be responsive to input and hold center well. I will say that the tires will bark but quickly regain traction off the line in hammered hard. They are, all season tire after all and these test where done in 20 degree weather. I will see how they do once we get some nice 85 degree weather and warm road surfaces I feel the take off response will improve in warmer weather. In an all season I know you can pay more, much more, and still not have better performance. Matter of fact I can't see spending more for any all season tire. I don't think you will be any happier. For most people I think these tires will save changing between summer and winter tires and they would not miss the summer performance difference. Plus, you gain longer tread life and save money to boot. That is a win, win for anyone.

245/45R20 - Great tire for winter weather, which we have had a boatload of this year. The tire takes the worry right out of bad weather commuting. It cuts right through the snow and slush and seems to offer a decent grip on glare ice. Coupled with the car's AWD, it's like I'm driving a rally car/tank when other cars around me struggle to move. I probably drive with too much confidence, to be honest. The dry performance sees a reduction in steering precision and ultimate dry traction, which is standard for a winter tire. The noise is also somewhat elevated due to the open block design and high sipe density. I purchased a second set of these for my wife's SUV, which now enjoys the same benefits.

Keeping in mind the price-point of these tires, I have been very impressed with their performance to this point. I have about 2000 miles on them and have driven them in just about every weather condition. Wet/dry traction has been impressive and I quickly gained confidence in these tires in light snow. In heavier snowfall, I adjust my driving style to the conditions, but, have had no problems whatsoever with takeoffs or turns. Ride comfort and noise level are at least on par with the OE Eagle RS-As. As others have stated, treadwear will ultimately determine if this was a great buy.

Great tire... lives up to the reviews. Not noisey at all on my CTS-V, quiet on the highway. Very good wet and dry grip. The response on these tires is better than summer tires I've had before. Very good on-center feel and the car reacts instantaneously to inputs. Good acceleration grip with 400hp, difficult to spin the tires. Was able to pull 1.03G around a cloverleaf and the tires had not even begun to make noise, and that was in 28 degrees. Have not used them in the summer yet though but I imagine they will be even better than they were in cool weather. HUGE NOTE - these tires will not get you through a real winter. I am in MN and use winter tires but got stuck with these in a few inches of unplowed city streets. They do work well enough to get you around on packed snow and ice but unless you have AWD these tires WILL leave you stranded on any type of snowfall. Other than that these are awesome tires.

Are Sumitomo Tires Good?

Tuesday, March 11, 2014 by Ben Rooney

Customers often ask me about the Sumitomo brand. The tires are often very attractively priced, but many drivers are not as familiar with this brand as they are with some of the traditional names like Goodyear and Michelin. Are they really a great value, or are they too good of a price to be true?

How is Sumitomo pronounced?

This one stumps many people, however the pronunciation is actually easier than it looks at first glance. I find that breaking it in half makes it much easier. "Sumi" is pronounced pretty much how it looks: soo-me. It rhymes with Zoomy. Then the second half, "tomo" rhymes with Romo.

Where do they come from?

Sumitomo is a Japanese company. They're part of the Sumitomo Group, which has many diverse businesses under its umbrella. Sumitomo manufactures in a number of Asian countries, including Thailand, China and Japan.

Are they good?

Yes, Sumitomo makes a good tire. Like any manufacturer, Sumitomo makes a number of different models to fit different driving styles and customer needs. Are you in the market for high performance handling and excellent wet and dry traction? Try the Sumitomo HTR Z III. Do you need something a little bit sporty, but with the ability to handle cold weather and some light snow? Sumitomo's HTR A/S P01 might fit your needs. As long as you choose a tire that suits your application and driving style, they offer a very good combination of quality and value.

Why haven't I heard of them before?

You probably have and don't know it. Sumitomo builds tires for other brands as well. The most notable is Dunlop, which is one of the oldest names in the business. They do not do as much marketing of their own tire brand compared to many of the other brands. So while they fly a little bit under the radar, they have plenty of expertise in building tires.

Take a look at all offerings available from Sumitomo.

I,ve had these tires for a short period,the ride comfort is very good almost feels like a conventional tire. The road noise is a different story these tires are noisey almost pickup truck noise.I'm hoping warmer weather brings a softer tire and less noise.I had the continental ssr all season run flats less noise but harder ride overall the bridgestone is a good tire but they need to fix the tire noise
