February 25, 2014

This is my 3rd set of General Altimax Arctic snow tires. Live in the foothills west of Golden, CO, up a canyon and off on a steep gravel county road. I have to work real hard at getting these tires to spin in packed snow or plowed roads conditions. They just grip and GO! Plus they have excellent stopping grip. I do have to be careful stopping so cars behind do not get too close. I seem to be able to out-brake most other vehicles. I leave them on all year on my Forester since they wear so well and do fine on dry roads and rain/mud. I find them to be a great tire value for their cost level. I hope they keep making them.

i had these tires on my ranger and they transformed the truck from a something that i hated driving to something that handled great, rode nice and had almost no tire noise unless i was above 75 mph. they held up to the occasional power braking really well and made the truck fun to drive. there definitely going on my new ranger they were oversize for the truck and soaked up the bumps great. and i even used them to get into a friends camp that was two miles of dirt roads that were unmaintained and even a few small mud holes and i didn't have any problems

put these on and drove from Austin to Boise and back before breaking them in. The trip included 90 degree dry pavement, rain, sleet, ice, deep offroad snow (to the bell housing), offroad dirt and mud, and highway snow (shallow 1-2"). Drove them through an ice storm up ramps with large trucks and 4x4's with normal street tires stuck. the most remarkable thing is my AWD system has not kicked in since i've put these tires on! impressive. I will definitely buy these again. Oh yeah, and I get 1-2 mpg more than my stock tires gave me. nice...

I have been fortunate enough if you want to call it that to really get a good feel for these tires in snow, ice, freezing rain, rain, gravel, and mud. Light snow is not an issue at all. Deeper snow has little to no effect on these tires. I have been averaging driving in 8in to 13in+ with little to no problems. The only issue was on about 6in of ice the truck sank into. These tires have been great and look like they are wearing very even. Great buy.

I just purchased these tires and installed today. They look awesome! I took it down to the lake right away and went through deep mud, the sandy beach and through the icy brook full of shale rock. Never slipped or slowed even once. Best purchasing experience ever. Felt like Christmas morning coming home to new ultra rims and general grabbers paired and balanced already. With the hardware sent also, installation was a breeze and now my souped up Hemi has some new hiking boots to explore. Thank you tirerack.com!

Bought these for my wife's 2013 Explorer Limited. I had to drop down to the base 17" wheel size due to the lack of available snow tires in her 20" wheel size. I've used BF Goodrich on most of my 4x4 trucks and these are certainly the best road tire I've used! I live overseas where marble is used as an aggregate for the roads and these grip the road like no other tire I've used. It handles snow and ice with ease and even grips well in the mud.

The only down side is the road noise. It's not bad at all but you will hear them. After 2500 miles on them it hasn't changed much. Good trade in my opinion for a tire that you can feel confident driving on in bad weather.

I have a 2011 F-150 supercab 4x4 with the 5.0, i have the 275-55-20's. I got over 66,000 miles on these tires. They were awesome until about 45,000 miles then seemed to lose their traction in the rain. they are very quiet and resist punctures. I had them rotated every 5000 miles with my oil changes by the ford dealer. They are way better then the good years which are so loud they will give you a headache. they have outlasted any other tire i have ever owned. They are better then any other tire on dry pavement, but the BF Goodrich all terrain t/a's are much better in the sand and mud if you can take the noise. The only down fall is the price.

Initial Review, 70,000 Miles on Tires

Got these tires on my Yukon when I bought it. The tires were obviously not new. I remember about half the tread remained when I bought the car. Amazingly, It took twice as long as I thought it would to get to the wear bar on these! I put 40,000 HARD miles on these tires, with half their tread. I tow a trailer, I go off-roading, i commute, I work out of this truck, I go on long trips. No matter what, this tire on this vehicle took anything I threw at it and asked for more. I only got stuck twice with these tires off roading. Both times I was somewhere I had no business being. Once was in the sand dunes in the Outer Banks, the other was at an off road park in a 12" mud bog. Clearly i exceeded the limit of my tire and vehicle setup! But on pack sand at the beach, rocky trails, gravel mountain roads, in DC city traffic, or any other off-road situation, the tire performed beautifully. ON the highway, the tire was respectably quiet, smooth and wore EXCEPTIONALLY well. Some of my surprise is that I am used to performance cars that need tires about 3x as often, but this 60,000 mile tire was worth every penny and I bought a set of LE2's to replace these. Stand by for a review of those!

I drive a 97 Grand Cherokee ZJ with 4" of lift and installed these tires in a 31x10.50x15 size. They've exceeded my expectations in every respect. They're quite for an aggressive tread pattern on the highway, handle well for the tread pattern in highway driving, and perform excellently off road. I primarily use my Jeep for off road use but it does drive upwards of 200 highway miles one way to different parks. I've also used it to travel to work when the weather is too bad to travel in my other vehicle. They handle very well in the snow, packed or deep, and even do well on ice. For a tire that's not a mud terrain tire, they do surprisingly well in the mud but I wouldn't say it's a replacement for a traditional mud terrain. I haven't had them in sand so I cannot comment on their sand capabilities. I only have about 5k miles on them so far but they seem to be wearing well and evenly, if they're even wearing at all yet. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a good all around tire for a vehicle that sees a multitude of uses. I'll most definitely be purchasing another set when the time comes.

I've put over 65000 miles on these tires in all kinds of driving conditions. The only time I've had some concern with these tires is when I'm on ice or deep mud. But this is an All-Terrain tire meaning it's good in all conditions (if you want a tire that specialized in going through mud, get a mud tire! Same goes for driving in winter/ice). I rotate my tires every 5000 miles and after putting 65000 miles on the guy at my tire shop told me I could probably put another 10K-15K on them. As far as reliability goes. I've never had a flat. On numerous occasions when I've brought my truck in for rotations the service people have pulled out nails or bolts from my tires (they're usually stuck in the tread).. again, I've never had a flat tire! These tires are a little more $$$ and they will cut your mpg's down compared to a regular all season or typical OE radial, but this tire CAN do it all and it WILL last!

I live in Western, NY, and travel for work in WV,OH,PA,VA. These Tires can handle as much snow as my car can push. The Tires Handled perfectly the day after I bought them PA 219 was closed for Trucks, bc of the icy/ heavy snow condition on the Mountains. Most the roads that night I traveled weren't plowed or pre-treated (i.e) Sand, Salt,Brine). There was parts of the road that had up to 18"+ it drifted. The tires are very affective in wet, mudding, ice, light/deep snow and ice. I would keep these tires on all year round on my AWD. I've had them for just about a year now, and they still handle like the day I bought them.

So I really researched the heck out of what tire was right for my 4x4 tacoma. We live at 6000 ft and can get up to a foot of snow at a time in winter. We needed a fairly aggressive tire tread for winter. But I also was weary of tire noise and the mileage hit you get with some AT tires. This tire hit the sweet spot. I had to back up a fairly steep incline on my property with a moderately loaded trailer in snowy mud. Although this probably speaks as much to the capability of a 4x4 tacoma with the locking diff I know I couldn't have made it with the dueler h/t that came on the truck. This tire has very little road noise and has just aggressive enough tread to get it done while offroad. I would highly recommend this tire to someone in my situation where you frequently drive unimproved roads as well as highway. Also, get the load range E light truck tire because the ride is no worse and for a nominal increase in cost you get a bit more tread depth and load rating which is well worth the money. Kudos to Michelin on a well balanced light truck tire!

Interesting how mostly Ford F-150 drivers hate these tires. I happen to buy a brand new set real cheap from a guy who didn't drive his new F-150 off the lot with these tires because of the F-150 forums bashing them so much. So I put them on my 2010 Sequoia and could not be happier. I've been in the sand, grass, a little mud, TONS of snow and wet roads and I tow a 25' travel trailer. I love these tires, but I don't like the new cost, which is a little high. So while I have ZERO COMPLAINTS, I'm not sure I would buy these again unless the cost came down a little.

I bought these for my 6,000 mile Alaskan expedition. The tires were surprisingly quiet and comfort despite their aggressive tread patterns. They perform well on pavement (obviously) and excellent off-road. I don't do any recreational off-roading but for driving through gravel, mud, dirt, etc., these tires are really excellent. I just placed an order for the new set of Geolandars.

This is by far the best tire I have ever owned, and it's not even close.

The ride is smooth and quiet. The traction is amazing, on both dry and wet roads. These tires cut through water and all but eliminate hydroplaning. When I need to use 4WD at job sites to get through mud, I have few problems for a road tire.

In snow and ice, no problem. Winter traction is fantastic. One morning I was the first vehicle on the road with 16" of snow, and with 4WD these tires plowed right through it.

I love these tires. I'm at 68k with rotations every 5-6k miles, and will get 5k more before it's time to replace them. Over 70k miles in a full size truck is great.

I'm getting these tires installed on my wife's Jeep Commander tomorrow.

While Maryland isnt exactly the snowbelt, Im actually from NY, and my girlfriend (its her truck) is from Idaho. Were driving out to her hometown this fall and Ill be staying there probably through November, then driving back East. Since I do heavy construction, and construction sites are often muddy and difficult, combined with the snow in upstate NY, we wanted good AT tires on the truck. So far these are performing excellent, with phenomenal dry traction and good mud traction. I drove ambulances for a living, for fourteen years in NYC, so I have a great appreciation for tires that grip the road. These AT2s are doing a great job so far and I expect them to handle the coming Northern Idaho winter travel with ease.



About the only negative Ive found with these tires, so far, is that my gas mileage dropped quite a bit. I had been getting about 18 mpg highway and I now seem to be getting about 15.5, even with inflation pressures on the hard side. Well see if that changes any as the tires get broken in.

This is a really great tire. So good, i just bought a new truck, and immediately had its stock tires swapped out for these Destination A/Ts. I had 37,000 miles on them when I sold the truck, and they still had between 8/32" and 9/32" tread left. That's more than 50%! They would have easily lasted past 55k before i would have wanted to take them off. When they were new, they were excellent in the snow- recent snowfalls I can tell they're slipping a little, but still get the job done safetly. But hey, 37k on them, it's expected. I did a lot of highway driving with these tires, and they are smooth and quite. They did not affect my gas mileage, as some people have claimed. I drive in the sand a lot in the summer, and I've never gotten stuck once, even on a sandy uphill slope, from a dead stop, they pull you forward. I've owned a lot of mud tires in the past, including the Destination M/T. These A/Ts perform surprisingly well in all condition. They're no M/T, but they're pretty close. I recently considered going to the BF Goodrich all-terrain KOs, just to switch it up. I knew what to expect because I've owned them in the past, but I honestly believe that the Destination A/T is an equally effective tire in most normal conditions. I just couldnt bring myself to spend $80 more per tire for the BFs. The value for the Firestone is the best, in my opinion vs virtually every comparable tire out there. $145/ tire is great!!! I'm a tire fanatic, this is my second set of destination A/Ts and my 4th set of firestones. Highly recommended.
