Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

A winter/snow/ice tire is not the general purchase of a south Texas driver but after rolling my previous vehicle 2 years ago in an ice event in Colorado my wife insisted that I purchase some dedicated winter tires if we drove out to Colorado again. All I can say is thanks for the missus being so insistent. I purchased a set of these tires for our 2015 Subaru...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber Arctic LT

Great snow/ice tires! I put these on my Tahoe in Colorado this winter and rarely had to use 4 wheel drive with these babies on. The wear is great but I don't plan on using them year round (only in winter) so that is yet to be determined. But they run circles around the Bridgestone all terrains that I took off for these. Highly recommend for winter drving   Read More

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

Just got a set of these to replace the stock Hankook H428 tires. This car now handles like a fun small hatchback should. The traction in snow is orders of magnitude better then stock tires. I am no longer afraid to drive in an inch of snow. The ride is much smoother and I no longer get jolted over every small bump. The cornering is much more responsive and I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber Arctic LT

Great tires! Live in Colorado mountains. Constant changing weather and road conditions. Even in conditions of water on ice, a true test for any tire, no slippage. I drive in both 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive, depending upon time of day, road conditions, and traffic volume. Hunted off road with theses tires on truck in 8 inches of snow for three days. No issues,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I waited several months to post this review because I wanted to see how these tires handled my New England winter. I was looking for that utopia of both great summer and winter performance - at speed - and would last a while. I was replacing some very expensive Michelin's which were 90% of the way to that goal - but wore out quickly (which I accept for what...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This is the 2nd set of Arctic Altimax tires for me. Two different Volvos.The traction on snowy Maine roads is phenomenal. If driven through 2 inches of fresh powder this season, slushy stuff, you name it and we hit it this year. My plow guy seems to create a skating rink in our driveway, so I've used it to test starting and stopping on ice and I couldn't...  Read More

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

Purchased a set of 4 of the Altimax RT43's, waited until I put some good mileage on them (10K) under various driving conditions to write this review. Had tires delivered to a tire shop I use close to work (Arrived the day after I ordered them) and the technician commented how well they balanced with the road force balancing procedure I requested. I am a...  Read More

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

These tire have noticeably softer side walls than any performance tires I've used in the past 30+ years. Definitely soften the ride. Turn-in is not as sharp as most Ultra High performance tires, but in this case it was what I was looking for, it reduced some of the twitchiness in the Fit's electrically assisted steering. Braking is strong wet or dry. Handing...  Read More

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

This tire is the Bee's knees! The stock Kumho's were trash, didn't last very long and did awful if there was anything but pavement under them. This are very responsive, smooth, and great traction in wet conditions. I've only had a couple days on light snow and ice, but didn't have any slippage yet. Makes my car fun to drive again! Also can't beat the price.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Bought them used on rims that fit my car, they are the skinniest option offered for my car. second winter I've had them on now and they work great on the unplowed roads I often encounter driving home from work at 4 A.M. I recently found a second set of stock rims for my wife's van and plan to buy a set for that as well.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

I bought a set of General Grabber HTS' about two months ago. They are exactly what I wanted on this vehicle -- a good value, great in rain and snow, and acceptable for dry-weather driving. I've already taken two trips of around 500 miles and each time had opportunities to run them in snow. On an all-wheel-drive SUV I had no problems in up to 6 or 8 inches of...  Read More

I bought this tire on a suggestion from my tech I talked to and have been more than pleased and am really thankful for Keith's input.   Read More

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

The factory tires that came on the Honda did not provide good winter weather traction and were very noisy. These General tires are awesome. Great winter weather traction and very quiet. Honda should install these tires at the factory. We will buy this brand again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

wanted white letter tires and looking for the 215/60r14 was impossible. so I switched my search to the light truck tires and found these tires and they fit perfectly. I have moved 3 times 3 states and they have performed flawlessly well beyond expectations all around. the tread wear so far they still look new. will buy again without hesitation.   Read More

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

I have purchased General Altimax tires for years and they have always lived up to my expectations. The ride quality and performance are great and when considering their price, it becomes a very easy decision. You can spend twice the price for other brands, but you will be much more satisfied with the Altimax tire and have a noticeable bulge left in your...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I live just outside of Boston so we get the occasion big nor'easter. These tires have been fantastic on both ice and in the snow compared to my all-seasons. I can be out there surrounded by trucks and SUVs and the Fit can totally hold its own now. I used to have to maintain momentum going into intersections with any kind of plow induced snowbanks and now,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These are a great snow tire. Don't let the cheaper price of these tires dissuade your from purchasing them. These tires along with my WRX's AWD system handle snow better than the Jeep that I previously owned. Would definetly recommend these tires to anyone looking for a snow tire.   Read More

Best All-Season Tires for Subaru Outback (2017)

Over the past few years,  the best tires for the Subaru Outback have changed. The last time we discussed this topic in 2014, the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus was ranked number one in the Grand Touring All-Season category by our customers, and for good reason! With its smooth, quiet ride and long treadwear, the P7 All Season Plus remains an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I have put 40,000 miles on these tires, and I will be putting on a set of the newer AS3+ this weekend. I have been buying, researching, and driving tires for 2 decades. I am a true car guy, and I love driving, and I really wanted to drive the -------- out of these to see what they could do. First, I know it may sound crazy, but I never once rotated them. Yet...  Read More
