Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

These tires are very good all around tires. They stick to the dry road, and there is minimal hydroplaning on wet roads. However they do tend to hydroplane in deeper standing water, at speeds above 60 mph. Overall I would buy this tire again, and I would recommend them to my friends and family.....   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS

Got just over 30k miles on this tire. I was very impressed with these initially. They felt a bit softer than the ultra High performance OEM tire but that was expected for a touring tire. Generally they gave me best of both worlds, performance and ride quality. My biggest disappointment is the tread wear. According to my dealer the fronts are at 3/32 and the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I use these only during spring through fall, and put on four Blizzaks for the winter. With only 6500 miles so far I'm not sure I can accurately address the durability/tread life of the tires, but generally speaking I'm pleased with them. They seem to have plenty of grip in both wet and dry conditions though I tend to spin one wheel very slightly (I don't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Just like the Tirerack reviews say. These tires perform just as good as the Goodyear comfortred in dry, but way much better in rain. My truck is only 116 hp, but would fishtail in wet with the goodyear. When it rain I had to slowly accelerate with these no problem at all. I have push this tire on ramp rate 35mph at 65mph and wow. These tires stick! Road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax RT

Bought these for my VW based on previous reviews, and they weren't wrong. An EXCELLENT tire. Put about 25,000 on them before selling the car and the tread life was great with a proper tire rotation schedule. Excellent in the snow (including a drive home with 8 of unplowed snow). Great in the rain. And very quiet. Can't say enough good about these so I'll...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

This tire while is fairly ok. The side walls on these tires are a joke! I had to replace to tires hitting potholes the side walls are very weak. A decent size piece tore off one time when i curb rashed the tire. Will not buy again!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

I purchased these tires as a replacement for the Goodyear Eagle RS-As that were on the car previously. I tend to drive gently and sit in traffic most days...I need a quiet, smooth tire with good traction for less than 70MPH situations. This General Tire has filled the purpose so well, at such an affordable price ($110/tire) that I am BEYOND THRILLED! I'm so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Great winter tires! I had Blizzak before, and these are cheaper and just as good. Really quiet on the highway, smooth ride, and excellent snow grip. I would absolutely buy again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

I live in Michigan and anyone who lives here knows its the roads here that kill more tires then milage... Very good tires I have an AWD car and these things handle great in all types of weather. It states that these are for light snow but I have had NO problems driving in blizzard conditions with these tires. Ones driving ability's are everything when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I have used General winter tires on my X3 for many years and this year I have tried an all season. These new all season tires are unbelievable! I had a chance to put them to the test this month when we received our first good snowfall in the mountains of Utah.I was able to climb unplowed snow covered hills with about 4-5 inches of wet snow without ANY...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Initially this tire was great! After first rotation @ 5000 miles, the tires began a balancing issue. Found out two of my four are out of round and it takes a bunch of weight to balance them. This will never get any better on this set. It is a great tire in light snow and ice conditions if driven properly. I would use this tire in the future on a serparate...  Read More

The typical top requirements tend to be snow traction, longevity and ride quality.   Keep in mind there are a number of different size options used on the Camry....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

I just recently installed the BFG KO2's on my 2011 Ford F-150 5.0. So far I pretty much have nothing but good things to say about this tire. I'm pretty easy-going in my driving, so I haven't really push these tires to their limits on or off R so I haven't really push these tires to their limits on or off road. The three immediate differences that I noticed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

I have a 2005 SLK 350 that had the Bridgestone Potenza's on it since it was new, while these are great tires they also cost. I myself read reviews on the G-Max tires and liked what people had to say, so I took a chance and bought them, I am so happy with these tires in all aspects, handling, road noise, the general look of them, and the fact that I was able...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

Best tires I've had, Aggressive driving. I wore them out in 8000 miles doing burnouts and autocrossing the truck. I have an LS3 Corvette V8 in my single cab pickup. When the tires were new, they made ZERO road noise and rode smoothly. I took them through 8 of slushy snow and they performed. I took them through severly soft sand in a well traveled river bed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Great looking tire, great handling tire, great wearing tire, great priced tire... only drawback is that these tires have gotten EXTREMELY LOUD as they get older. Funny - because they are wearing very evenly, but the wa-wa-wa noise like an off road tire has really spoiled an otherwise favorable review. Doubt that I would buy these again - too bad, I like...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

I've had these tires on this car for almost 50K and have had great success with them. In fact I'm going to buy another set before the winter. They drive nicely, I don't notice any noise, and they have gotten through a bunch of Northeast winters without problems.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I held off on reviewing this tire until I had a few miles on this set. I now have almost 20,000 miles on them and they look like new. I had Michelins on my Mazda 6 prior to replacing them with the Generals. I have replaced Michelins in the past because I found them to be terrible in the rain and snow as well as noisy when cornering. The Altimax tires corner...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought these for my wife. Immediately noticed a marked reduction in gas mileage. There goes any money we hoped to save! And because the Civic has that dumb (and numb) electric steering, these tires require constant correction - very aggravating and tiring, especially on longer trips. The sidewalls are way too soft and make the car lean heavily while...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I am very particular about my tires. Here is why and this is my story. I have driven many types of vehicles with many different makes of tires. The difference between a good and bad tire can be the difference between life or death!! That said, everyone has near misses with the crazies on the road! No one is perfect but, you get what you pay for. When I...  Read More
