Initial Review, 1,000 Miles on Tires
June 26, 2014

I have recently installed these tires on my Focus and they are great! They are better than the Goodyear Eagle RS-A's that I previously had. I have only had them for about a month but so far, they have been stellar in heavy rain as well as dry roads. These tires inspire confidence and I will buy these tires again. Hopefully I get more mileage out of these than I did with the Goodyear's. The Goodyear's were good for the first 20k miles but then the performance exponentially declined shortly after. Thus far, the Altimax's have proven themselves better than the Goodyear's that they replace. Updates to follow after I put more mileage on them.

Initial Review, 60 Miles on Tires
July 29, 2014

Ok, I just got these tires so this is my very initial experience with them. I got them because the Michelin tires on my wife's car had gotten so noisy and wanted something other than Michelin's as the last 2 sets had done the same thing (very noisy after 12K miles. We had more than 12K on both sets of course but had to deal with the noise for a long time. Bad thing is I read the reviews here for the first time a few minutes ago about this tire being noisy so I hope I haven't got into the same situation again. However, driving on these Goodyear's so far has been pleasant and very quiet. They have a soft ride even with the tire pressure at 35lbs here in the North Carolina in July. News flash for some of you. Don't expect any tire to live up to it's warranty. I used to love Michelins but they ain't what they used to be. Oh, those old X-Radial tires were wonderful but not so much the newer styles I've experienced. A couple years ago I picked up a young guy who ran out of gas fresh out of the military. He was heading home up north. His father had worked for Michelin and he told me the same thing, that they weren't what they once were. I don't know that I'm better off buying these yet than with a Michelin but from my past experience I definitely don't think I'm worse off. I'll report again when I have some real miles on them. Good luck in your selection.
