General Altimax ArcticThe General AltiMAX Arctic has proven to be a great value for the drivers of coupes, sedans, minivans and crossovers during the winter months. It's also the truck tire chosen for winter driving by many light duty pickup truck owners.

A set of these General winter tires have the option of being equipped with studs to boost your vehicle's ice and hard packed snow traction. Utilizing a multi angle sipe system results in 270 degrees of interlocking sipes that offer the benefit of thousands of biting edges that maximize traction in any direction. The directional tread pattern performs water and slush evacuation. There is a solid center rib as well to instill confidence during straight line traveling in inclement weather. The tire also reacts to different road conditions to keep the most rubber on the ground for the best traction, which General calls Reactive Contour Technology (RCT). 

The winter tire reviews for the AltiMAX Arctic show the tire to have high rankings in light snow traction, deep snow traction and ice traction. And, having used a set of these General snow tires on one of my vehicles, I can say they provide safety and mobility in extreme winter weather. General offers sizes covering 75% of the market, which means there is a great chance they are available for your vehicle.

Shop by vehicle to find the winter / snow tire that works best for your winter driving needs.
