This past New Year's weekend, my wife and I took a trip to spend time with some friends about 45 miles from our home. We expected food, fun and festivities, however what we got was an unexpected 4" of snow and freezing mist on the plowed roads.
Thankfully, we put a set of General AltiMAX Arctic winter / snow tires on her Honda Fit a couple of months ago when she took a road trip to New York. This was my first winter driving experience in the Fit and I'm glad we made the decision to go with the General AltiMAX Arctic.
The following reasons are why we decided to install the General AltiMAX Arctic tires on the Honda Fit:
- Dual tread compound to help with cold weather flexibility and wet traction
- Directional ribbed tread pattern for straight-line stability and water/slush evacuation
- Top-ranked tire in "Winter Testing at the Arctic Circle: Studdable Winter / Snow" and our Tire Survey Results
- Branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol
These General winter tires came in handy when we encountered one of those "surprise" winter driving situations. My wife's car zipped through the snow while others were slipping around.
Since the General AltiMAX Arctic is a studdable winter tire, we can stud your set for a cost of $15.00 per tire. If you choose to stud the tire, please be mindful of the studding laws in your state and that there is a brief break-in period.
