Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I live in Mass, and we have some crazy weather throughout the year, especially during the winter months. I got these tires late Jan. 2016 and have more than 8,000 miles on them so far. Pretty much all of driving is during the week and on the highway. They are great in the snow from a few inches to over a foot, no problem in the rain either. There is a trail...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Extremely happy with these tires. 50,000 miles so far, and just starting to notice a little bit of highway howl at 70mph. They have at least another 10,000 miles of tread left, I'll replace them with another set just before next winter. These tires have been great on the highway and great in the snow, on and off-road. Highly recommended for the value.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Short version: 95% of the performance of a summer tire, 95% of the quiet and comfort of a grand touring tire, 90% of the performance of a winter tire. The best all around tire I've found. I have these tires on all my cars, a Chevy Volt, Mercedes SL550, Mercedes E550, and had them on my Mercedes GLK350.In Colorado, conditions can go from dry and warm to snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Since my WRX comes with summer only tires I bought these mounted on rims from Tire Rack. I grew up in Wisconsin but when it snows, Tennessee mountain driving is far more challenging than WI. ever was. Put on 1100 miles last winter and 1900 so far this winter on mostly dry roads - tires have been even better this year due to break in last year. I live on top...  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 Altimax Arctic

I drive mostly city streets during the week, to and from work. Surface streets seem to be the last ones that get the snow removed, so the snow tires are a required tool for Front WD (can't get going at a stoplight otherwise). These tires are great for snow covered roads. I have also taken ski trips to deep snow, and the tires behave admirably with the deep...  Read More

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

In the first thousand miles, I am so far thrilled with this purchase. Other retailers tried to push me into tires that were much more expensive. Working with a Tire Rack specialist, I decided that these were right for my car, my driving needs and for me. I couldn't be happier. In the northeast, we get all kinds of weather, and this year was no exception. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These tires are a great value. Good traction in snow and reasonable on dry roads. I use these for spirited winter TSD rallies and feel safe with them.   Read More

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

Best tire for road warriors with daily commute times of 2- 4 hours a day. Drive confident in rain, snow or dry conditions.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These tires are excellent. I generally run Blizzaks, but we were not planning to keep this car so I wanted something cheaper to get through the winter. These tires were about $150 less for the set 16 car tires, which is a pretty substantial discount. I can say after a season of good snowfall that these tires perform as well as Blizzaks and I will purchase...  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

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

About 3 years ago I ordered new 15 inch wheels and tires here on Tire Rack due to limited stock tire choices. The Michelin Defenders were excellent, but after 70,000 miles, I decided to get new tires for up coming the winter. Since the Fit has a pretty hard ride, I was looking for a comfortable tire with good wear ratings. I love the old Altimax tires on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These tires surprised me on my Fiesta ST. The car came with summer-only tires so had to get a winter set, just put them on some steelies. I was so pleased with how well the tire did in snow. I actually looked for deep, untouched snow to see what they could do and I never got stuck. I'm not saying they could turn your car into a snow mobile but they...  Read More

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

Tires have good traction in wet or dry but they are a bit more noisy than the stock pirellis that I replaced. Driving in the rain i have not had any problems with wheel spin at take off or any issues with loss of traction or hydroplaning. Cornering seems pretty stable with no squealing. My fuel mileage didn't really change with these which was a good thing....  Read More

The Focus is Ford's compact car entry. Introduced in model year 2000, and selling upwards of 200,000 per year, it can be considered a success. Last re-designed in 2010, you will find the entry-level tire size to be 195/65R15. But Ford offers many variations in trim levels, engine sizes and tire sizes, so always double check the size you have on yours before...  Read More
