General Altimax Arctic
Initial Review: 3,000 miles on tires
Going into the 2011 winter I decide to put snow tires on my second car as it's mostly in use from Nov to March in the Midwest. For a rear wheel drive car, it was fantastic in the snow with the Generals. The sidewalls are very soft so responsiveness and turn-in are fairly delayed, but then again these really aren't meant for the Blizzak crowd.
If the need exists for an inexpensive winter tire, look no further.
