This is the second set of Altimax HPs on my Charger as the first set went for 47,000 miles and still wasn't completely worn out. I was so pleased in every aspect with the first set, I never seriously considered any other tire except the Michelin MXV4. The Michelins, however, cost 30% more and are rated higher by only the slightest margin. Since I've had great experiences with General Altimaxs (4th set on 3 different cars) it was really a no-brainer. This past weekend I put about 200 highway miles on the tires in nonstop rain and they handled wonderfully just as they always have. Best tire for the money!
