Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Tire Rack's delivery was faster than what I was expecting! I've used Tire Rack for years and recommend them several times throughout the year. I live near Akron, Ohio, USA, and have had these Generals for a year now. They're GREAT! I use four of them on an AWD Impreza. I drive in the city, on the highway, and occasionally on grass, dirt, or mud. I have them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These Tires are awesome this is the first dedicated snow tire I have ever owned so I have nothing else to compare it to but all the reviews I saw on them convinced me to try them out and I couldn't be happier. I have not been able to get these tires to loose traction on cornering or anything else short of smooth ice but what does grip ice? short of using...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Still running the AT2's I bought in early 2010 for my Honda Pilot. Though nearing the end of their useful life and likely to be replaced this upcoming spring, they still have tread and have never left me disappointed. Road noise has been a bit much on the highway, but never excessive. Deep snow traction has been phenomenal, and I've pulled numerous cars and...  Read More

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

Great all around performer. Smooth, quiet ride, nice stiff sidewalls makes my truck ride all around much better. Stock Dunlops were a joke in comparison. Great in winter conditions. Snow flake rating and new compound deffinately is no lye. Alberta winter conditions are no problem for this tire so far.Brand new tire so I can't comment on wear yet. Overall...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

Living in lake Tahoe basin for 7 years gave me a chance to try most of the winter tires on the market-General,Firestone,Bridgestone,Goodyear,Continental and many many others.I'm a big fan of classic winter tires with studs,gives you the great feel of being safe in any kind of winter conditions.We bought MB ML350 this year and due to the big rim size (20 or...  Read More

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

We were so impressed with our first set of Altimax RT43 tires that we purchased another for our Jetta TDI. The car is mostly driven by my wife 120 miles/day commuting to work. With the winter we've had so far we've had little snow to deal with but again these tires didn't disappoint. Traction is great in the snow when combined to the TDI's DSG transmission....  Read More

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

You'll see 75,000 above and go huh? Well, that's because I bought one set, drove 40,000 miles on them, then purchased another set. I've driven my Camaro across the country from Washington, DC to Seattle, from DC into Canada, from DC to Maine, as well as DC to down south. From tackling the streets of Washington, DC, Boston, New York City, Chicago, Seattle,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I used DWS 205/50's on the 16 rims that came with the car but found them to be ineffective in change of season slush or wet snow even brand new or wet roads at less than 4/32nd. I used 185/65-15 General Arctic winter tires and found them satisfactory as a summer tire when they were too worn for effective winter use. In August, I exchanged the 16 alloy rims...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

I spent way too long looking at winter tire options, and tireracks' website was by far the most useful.Regarding the Winter Maxx, I liked the reports of good tread wear and general all-round high marks for this tire, combined with the price. (There was a rebate going on.) I purchased the tires with new black steel wheels and had them mounted/balanced by...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I'm tellin' you, these tires have made all the difference in winter performance of my '15 Subaru. It came w Goodyear Assurance All Season's and I'm very disappointed in Subaru for shipping a car to New England with these tires. Take 'em off and put these General's on! I can't get enough about how amazing this car now just cuts through the snow. The handling,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Mileage is an estimate, since they are on about 4 months per year. I am now at 7/32 tread. This is their 6th season, and my third Legacy they've been on. I just verified my purchase date as November 2009, because I was replacing one tire that had a slice in the sidewall. Naturally it happened last night just after we got 7 of snow, and temporarily spoiled my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I'm a 71 year old female who drives 25 miles to work each day and back in very hazardous conditions. I called Tire rack to see what I could do about my tires as my car came with 18 inch tires and it was extremely dangerous in the ice and snow. My salesman suggested that I go to a 16 inch tire with studs for the winter here in Ohio, and sold me new rims and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

For having a RWD car as my daily driver and considering the Miata's small size, people said I was going to have a tough time travelling during the winter. My buddy reccomended these tires for winter since he had a set that worked really well. I have not had any issues driving in snow, sleet and freezing rain as they kept traction at all times. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Bought tires just before winter of 2013 and never looked back. Very happy with the tire all around. They wear like iron, have 25,000 miles on the set and can't tell. Winter snow in the Snow Belts in Michigan can be problem for some, but with these tires I never have to worry. Tire noise on dry payment is as good as highway tires on my wife's van. Tire's...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I have had these for over 4 years (2010 build date) on my Subaru Outback as daily usage tires and have over 70,000 miles on them with only 1 rotation. Front wear is nearing limits, rear is still around 60% tread.ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! This is my 3rd set of AltiMAX Arctics on 3 vehicles, prior to that I religiously used Nokian Hakkapellitta Q and RSI models....  Read More

Approx. 1,000 Miles so far on my 2009 Volvo S40-R AWD & I am very Satisfied so far with these tires! Driven during the following Conditions so far: Warm & Dry, Light/Hard Rain, Light 2-3 Snow & Ice (Thanks to Maryland Weather).This is my 18th vehicle that I have owned but only my 4th Car/Sedan, most of the others were lifted off-road 4x4's with 33+ Mud...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Upgraded from all seasons to this winter tire. Best decision I ever made, like night and day. They are fantastic on snow, even deep snow. The end of our road gets snow built up until the plows can get to it so it can be hard to start off into the main road, these plow right thru it from a stop. On dry pavement they are a little bit squirrely, but nothing...  Read More

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

I live in Chicago. I drive a 6 cylinder front-wheel drive pontiac. I drive the car very hard. I bought these tires after hours of research. I could not decide between a set of winter tires or good soft all season tires. I went with these because they are the highest rated all season tires on this website. I am very happy with them. I cannot say enough about...  Read More

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

Very impressed, I bought these tires so i did not have to change out from a summer tire to a winter one and the reputation of the previous generation of BFG AT's. I drive a combination of Canadian 2wd Highway commute, 6x12 dirt bike trailer pulling and 4wd trail driving with the trailer with a Nissan X Terra 6M Off Road. These tires have exceeded my...  Read More
