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

Far exceeded expectations, especially in snow. After buying a CPO Q5 3.2 late in the winter and experiencing the oem Dunlops, I needed to decide on some a/s tires, and many of the usual go-to tires were sold out.I knew the Conti-General product line is excellent, based on my experience with a few models, so I took a chance on these RT tires. I hoped that 700...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax HP

I'm really trying to find a reason not to like this tire. For this size, there are very few choices that aren't Z rated and wear out way too fast. So far (after 2000 miles)these are quiet, smooth riding and stable. I had Generals on a Corvette once and they were great. These are even better. Half the price of other choices...what else can I say?   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax HP

These are good sets of tires for those who want a good balance between comfort, performance and economy, since they are very affordable and perform quite well. However, I wouldn't recommend driving them during winter, I was stuck in a parking spot in light melting snow once during spring season and had a really hard time have traction to get out of the spot,...  Read More

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

Bought these tires based on other customers reviews. As of yet these tires have far exceeded the OEM Bridgestone dueler h/t that we're on this vehicle. The ride comfort and decreased noise were noticed on first test drive. I haven't tried these in snow yet so when I do that review will follow. These tires have been great and for the price and rebate a deal....  Read More

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

Previously had installed Hankook H727 and had big problems with wet and snow traction, although they handled great on dry pavement and were super-quiet. I had never been a fan of Generals before but decided to install them after reading some good reviews and getting a great price. After 10,000 miles I can say I made a great decision. Wet and snow handling...  Read More

Purchased these tires before going on vacation to the mountains of North Carolina last spring. These tires were far superior to the original Micheline tires the Honda came with. We experienced several days of heavy rains and we were driving on switchback mountain roads. Please remember that an Accord sedan is not a sports car, but I have to say that these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Purchased these tires back in 2011 and put about 60k on it. Although its rated as Snow tires, I rode them through all seasons on nyc, nj, and RI till Nov 2014.no problem. Also, I'm a vivid snowboarder so I took these tires up to Mt. Tremblant in canada, and vermont where heavy snow are common. It worked beautifully and got me up the mountain no problem....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

An excellent snow tire. I'd been driving on all-seasons many years before I bought a set of these and the difference was amazing. The tires I bought were larger (taller sidewall) that my car called for, so I didn't rate steering/cornering, because that hurt the cornering stability of course, BUT grip-wise they're great, dry, wet, and especially on snow. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Previous tires on this vehicle were Pirelli PZero (OEM), Bridgestone RE760 Sport. Living in SoCal the wet performance is estimated based on limited experience in damp conditions, without standing water and sustained rain. In general these are excellent tires, not quite as grippy as the PZeros and significantly grippier than the RE760s. Wear seems to be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This is my 4th season on the Altimax Arctic; having had Michelin's, Bridgestone's and Conti's in the past for snow tires these were recommended to me, I figured at the cost it would be worth a shot. I've been very happy with both the performance and tread-wear on these tires, so much so that I recently bought a pair for our Jetta Sportwagen. The only issue...  Read More

I did a lot of research before purchasing these tires. I previously had Blizzaks on my old truck but went with these as I could buy the rims and tires for the price of the Blizzaks. I prefer them, and I never thought I would.I love these tires! It usually only snows a few times a year but when it does we need to be able to get around as they don't plough the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Turned my Yaris into a winter beast! After last winter (2013 in Southeast Michigan), I was sold on getting snow tires for the following winter. I'm glad I did, although winter 2014 didn't yield as much snow as winter 2013, these tires have been tested on snowy, icy, wintery roads and have not failed, even on the dry cold concrete, I'm a very confident...  Read More

The testing and the results posted from Tire Rack helped my decision to get these tires. I chose them because of the results for snow traction as well as the overall results. Very happy with them, especially considering all of the snow we've gotten lately. They seem to handle better in the deeper snow than a small amount though. They handle rain with no...  Read More

Bought these in a 20mm section width downsize. Car is extremely confident in the snow, very little to no wheelspin even in deep snow. In the dry the car still feels stable and secure. Every non performance AWD/FWD vehicle will be getting a set of these tires for winter duty from here on. If you drive a RWD performance vehicle other snow tires may be more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Had Brigestone Revo ATS tires before and I loved them. I found out they changed the Brigestones and were not as good as the original. Bought the General AT2 tires based on the reviews and crossed my fingers. Turns out to be a great choice and for a super price. After installation they rode soooo much smoother than the Bridgestones, I almost assumed they...  Read More

After 20+K miles, these tires are still riding great and remain quiet. Just got back from a ski trip to the NC Mountains during a cold spell (3 degrees). A snow storm came-in during a day of skiing and I was worried about getting back down to the main roads travelling on a extreme down-hill, cork-screw narrow road covered in slush they had salted before the...  Read More
