Initial Review, 3,000 Miles on Tires
July 31, 2013

Beware! These General G-Max AS-03 tires have very weak sidewalls that rupture easily! I have a set of these tires that are only four months old with 3000 miles on them. I was turning into a parking lot and bumped the curb with my right rear tire. I parked my car and went to inspect the tire expecting to see curb rash. What I found was a flat tire with a punctured sidewall. The impact with the curb was minor and at low speed. I have been driving for 30 years and have bumped curbs in the past but have NEVER had a tire rupture from it. My tire dealer covered 2/3 the cost of a replacement under their road hazard warranty. However, I was very displeased that I had to spend any money to replace a tire that should not have failed. I contacted Continental Tire (they own General Tire) and asked them to cover my cost of the replacement tire. They simply told me that they don't a provide a road hazard warranty on their tires and refused to do anything about it.
