General Altimax Arctic
Follow-Up Review: 16,000 miles on tires
2nd winter on these tires and finally where getting a real winter these tires are worth every penny. They have awesome traction on snow ice and water. I have a heavy foot and these tires have worn very well. Don't waste your money on more expensive tires that are in the same class. Remember they are not performance tires there for snow so expect to have less handling , but it's worth it when your driving on unplowed roads with confendence.
Initial Review: 3,500 miles on tires
These tires are awesome in the snow what a difference from the summer tires last year. No sliding no skidding they get traction everywhere. Nice job general for making a good affordable tire for people to buy.
