Initial Review, 1,000 Miles on Tires
January 08, 2014

This is my first set of General Tires. The General AltiMAX RT43 replaced the OEM Yokohama Geolanders that came on the Forester. They Geolanders were not a good all season tire. I did not feel safe on snow and ice even with the all wheel drive.

I had the General tires installed on a snowy day and it was really an impulse buy because of the lack of traction I was getting that day. What a great surprise it was when these tires really showed how well they are suited for this type of weather. So far, I have driven them in snow, deep fresh snow and ice and they have handled flawlessly. I have also driven them in dry and wet weather. No hard rain yet. They handle very well in those situations as well. They are very quiet and comfortable at freeway speeds. They do not flatspot as bad as the Yokohama tires did when they sit over night in the cold. Overall, I am very very happy with this purchase. I have had Michelin Primacy MXM4, MXV4 and Latitude Tours on different vehicles over the last couple of years. These tires are half the price and handle the different elements better than any of those did! I will post an update when these get some more miles on them. Hopefully they will hold up to the stated 75k miles warranty. I would highly recommend this tire! General Tire has a new fan!

January 29, 2014

Posting as a follow-up to an earlier review. I've owned these tires since May, 2013. Unfortunately, after the 2nd rebalancing attempt by Costco, I was past the 30-day warranty exchange period. Spent $160 at the top balancing shop in early July, trying to get the vibration issues sorted out. Had them check the suspension for wear or damage - none found. They 'matched' the tires to the rims (high to low) and checked rims for true - everything was perfect. At or above 50mph, I still have vibration in these tires. Called Bridgestone - that was a waste of time - 'you are out of your 30-day guarantee period' but if you have less than 2/32nds of wear on the tires, we will replace two of them for ride disturbance. All four tires have been rotated around each time they have been rebalanced - the problem exists with all four tires. Very disappointed in what is supposed to be a 'premium' tire. The problems started the day they were put on the car - shame on me for not making Costco replace them after the 2nd balancing - but shame on Bridgestone for making such a poor quality product. If I weren't throwing $900 out the window (after buying the tires, mounting/balancing, road hazard, and the body shop expense), I'd replace them today. I also noticed a 2 to 3 mpg drop in fuel mileage over the OEM Michelins that came on the car (and lasted to almost 60,000 miles). Never again - it'll be Michelins or Yokohamas from this point forward on any of our vehicles.

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.

 

Need Tires for a Classic MINI?

Thursday, January 30, 2014 by Ben Rooney

With the trend for larger wheel diameters, it can be hard to find tires for some of the classic vehicles that used small-diameter wheels. The legendary MINI is a victim of this trend, with virtually no tires available in its usual 10" wheel diameter.

However, there is still at least one excellent option for enthusiast owners: the Yokohama A008. This sticky, handling-oriented tire will enhance the sporting character of your classic MINI. Currently available in the 165/70R10 size with an H-speed rating, this tire is perfect for any sporty driving, including some track and autocross use.

The A008 has been very well liked by the enthusiasts who have installed a set on their vehicle. See what drivers are saying about their experience with the tire.

"These tires are brilliant. The car was transformed, and handles significantly better on the tires these replaced, or my recollection of any MINI tires I had run in the past. Overall, I don't believe there is a better choice for a Classic MINI (unless snows are required)!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 1978 MINI Classic

"Very good tire. It performs well on this little car!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 1978 MINI

"Great tire with lots of good stickiness. Grip is very good. The soft compound makes for good ease into long sweeping curves. 100 predictable!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2002 MINI Cooper Standard

If you have an old MINI sitting in the garage on aged, dried out tires, breathe some new life into it with a fresh set of sticky tires and rediscover how much fun it can be.

I have been extremely pleased with this tire purchase. I have had them on my 08 Maxima for about a year and a half and now considering them for my Honda CRV. They excel in tread life, and both wet and dry handling. I have about 8/32 tread left after 20-k miles. Not bad for 18" 45 series tires. The only slight complaint is that they did begin to hum at about 15-k miles. The hum is tolerable considering the wear and handling. I rotate and check pressure every 5-7-k miles. These tires provide much more confidence than the OEM Goodyear RSAs, however, I did get 47-k miles out of the Goodyear's. I would buy the Yokos again.

Trying these tires out on my Odyssey Touring (changed the OE wheel/tire combo to some Acura MDX wheels & regular tires). Previous set of regular tires were Bridgestone Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza's. These Yokohama's have given me better steering response and overall grip in both wet & dry conditions. Road noise is only slightly worse than the Bridgestones. Treadlife will not be as good as the Bridgestones (I got over 50,000 miles on the Bridgestones; I'm thinking these Yokohama's might not make 40,000). I've also noticed a drop in my overall fuel economy (usually 22 mpg w/ the Bridgestones, around 20.5 with these Yoko's).

Overall a good tire that gives a nice, sporty feel. I may end up going back to the Bridgestones when these wear out, though I'm not 100% sure about that at this point.

This is a follow up now that I have more miles on these tires. I am still lovin these tires. This is the original equipment tire for this car and the only tire that feels right. I tried other brands of tires always with negative results. If you own a 5 series BMW don't try to second guess the BMW engineers. I have driven in light snow and ice with no problems. These are not Winter tires and you must use caution as with any other all season tire. Handling is excellent and steering response is superb. The best of all the tires I tried on this car including Continental and Yokohama. No balance issues at all. These tires are straight and true. This tire is the best compromise between high performance and touring. I would say it leans more toward the performance feel with excellent manners.

I live in MD and we don't get much snow around here so a winter tire is overkill, unless like me you go looking for snow to get your skiing fix. Purchased these Conti's two weeks ago and already took a trip up to Vermont over MLK holiday. I'm very impressed by this tire. I read all the reviews about winter tires and road noise in dry conditions but I didn't notice any difference between these and my OEM Yokohama's. It could be the weight of the car that makes things better, noise wise, as compared to what other reviewers noticed. The stability is a bit off but I'm driving a minivan so I was not expecting much. On our recent trip to VT (with a return detour through the Poconos PA) we hit snow, slush, ice and windy roads. The tires performed admirably again and again. Up moderately steep mountain roads covered with 4in of fresh snow and hard packed snow under... no problem (but I had to use the manual shifter to keep it steady traction in 3rd gear and engine brake going down), slush on the highways... no problem, ice on some of the byways... well, abs engaged when stopping a few times but I think that's how it's suppose to work. I was originally worried about the unique pattern of the Conti's and was going to go with the Michelin's (used them and lowed them when I lived in the snowy part of Europe) but the price difference was a big factor for me given that I would be using these tires max 3 mo out of the year. Tirerack delivery was great. Got my tires in two days.

Mostly would like to comment on winter performance of this tire. This rear wheel drive car is not noted for great winter performance and up until now I was afraid to take it out of my driveway in winter weather. Put 2 RT43s on the rear drive wheels and now this car is my go to vehicle in winter weather. We have had 3 major storms and these tires have pushed this car thru snow,snow covered ice, ice , and frozen slush. They have also pushed this car up snow covered hills from a standing start. I have Yokohama avids on a Grand Marquis and they have stranded me in a snow storm. The Tire Rack survey on the Yokohama avid is accurate on its poor winter performance. The RT43s have exceeded my expectations and would like to say this is about as good as it gets for winter performance from an all season tire.

I've been through three sets of these tires and they have all been out-of-round, which caused annoying vibrations and steering wheel shimmy. I really liked the look of these tires, but it was not worth the constant annoyance caused by the vibrations. Had them road-force balanced multiple times and all four tires from the most recent set were under 8 lbs (very good), but the vibrations were still there. Road force matching only works if the wheel has a heavy/light spot as well. My wheels were pretty much perfect so there was nothing that could have been done. I replaced the Geolanders with a set of Michelin Latitude Tours and the vibrations are now gone. I will never buy Yokohama again.

Wanted to replace replace the OEM Goodyear LS2s as I didn't trust them for dirt, snow and ice. I was hesitant to replace them after just 8k miles, but I knew this car do do better. Our Outlander is mainly a city car but we do occasional Ski and Camping trips and really wanted to get the most of the S-AWC of the Outlander. I was concerned about noise, ride comfort and mpg so I held on to the LS2s in case the Yokos were not suitable for city life. LS2s are now for sale. The Geolanders thrived in off road the ice and snow, really letting the Outlander shine. On freeways and city streets they are as 9/10ths as quiet as the Goodyears, which is saying a lot, and there's better road feel, ride quality and handling in the corners. The Goodyears were just too soft. The stiffer sidewall on the Geolander really compliments the Outlander on and off road, and the traction off road was tremendous for how civil they are on the streets. MPG has not suffered either. This should be the 2nd set of tires for all Outlander owners, I totally recommend!

This tire has amazed me since it was installed 10,000 miles ago. Immediately, I noticed a difference in decreased road noise and increased ride comfort over the OE Continental's. It has been a great tire while driving in heavy rain and an equally as great tire when taking corners a little faster then you should. Yes, I drive a 2011 Outback 2.5i Limited, but still love to take corners above the posted limit. What has brought me to write this review was an experience I had today. I drove my wife's Forester that is equipped with the OE Yokohama Geolander's. I had good thoughts about the Geolander and have always liked Yokohama tires. That was until I drove the Forester in the snow and compared it to my Outback that is equipped with the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires. The Pirelli's are SUPERIOR!! Even with AWD, I found myself slipping around a bit in the Forester with the Geolander's. In my Outback with the Pirelli's it has been a totally different experience. There is very little wheel spin when launching from a stop on snow covered roads. The stopping distance is equally as amazing when driving on the Pirelli's. These tires have been great, a lot of fun and from what I can feel, the safest tire produced. When it is time to get new tires on our Forester we will be purchasing the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires. Thank you Pirelli, for producing and ACTUAL All Season tire that is outstanding in ALL conditions!!

I've owned a lot of cars and a lot of different tires: Michelin, Dunlop, Continental, Pirelli, Semperit, Bridgestone, Falken, Goodyear, BF Goodrich, Firestone, Uniroyal. The only tires I've ever owned that were a close match to these were a set of Semperit M-401's I owned back in the late 70's. I put these tires on my front drive Volvo S60. I drive fairly hard and I have yet to get a squeal out of these on a curve on dry pavement. The car is like it's on rails. Very solid on wet roads where they feel almost as secure as on dry pavement. I've experienced no indication of hydroplaning. They will lose traction a bit when starting up quickly on wet pavement, but squeal almost like they would on dry pavement when doing so. We've been having a bit of a wild winter here in the mid-atlantic and I've gotten caught out in some fairly substantial snow several times over the past few weeks. A couple of times I've had to stop on steep hills behind other cars that have gotten stuck. In every case I've been able to wait for traffic to clear and drive right around the stuck car(s) with little effort, at times having to use the uncleared shoulder to get through. They aren't snow tires, but they're darned close. These replaced a set of Michelins and I've seen no noticeable change in fuel economy, but the car noticeably rides and handles better. Compared to the Michelins they replaced these tires seem to ride more smoothly over small imperfections, but slighty more harshly over large bumps and potholes. They are very quiet. I'm not able to rate tread life as I've only had them for a couple of thousand miles, but I am so impressed that I wanted to get this review out on the web for the benefit of others. Highly recommended.

This is the best street tire out there if your looking for the fastest lap times. Dry grip is amazing, steering feel is sharp and super fast, wet grip is even very good at 100+mph felt no loss of traction with wet track conditions and pouring rain, I was impressed. They never overheated on the road course with 30min sessions. Braking grip is very good too.
Very stiff sidewalls and these tires do run very wide. I've done 6 trackdays and the tires still look great! So treadwear is lasting longer than i expected. And I drive to and from the track.
Overall performed excellent in every way, except price...it is very expensive compared to other extreme performance tires but I think its still worth it.
Buy this tire you won't be disappointed! And now they have the updated AD08-R version?
So even better??

 

Yokohama's PARADA Spec-X is a Proven All-Season Performer for Your SUV

Thursday, January 23, 2014 by Doc Horvath

Currently sitting at the top of our survey results in the Street/Sport Truck All-Season category, the Yokohama PARADA Spec-X continues to impress SUV and light truck owners with superior wet and dry traction, as well as a quiet ride. Available in sizes ranging from 17" up to 28" wheel diameters, the PARADA Spec-X has built a strong reputation over its life by using a directional tread pattern and wide center grooves to resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction. Recently, Yokohama added more sizes to provide owners of "modern" muscle cars with confidence in year-round conditions, even light snow. Now, vehicles like the Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro can trade their fast wearing Original Equipment tires for extended life and improved comfort.

The range of available sizes means the PARADA Spec-X can be used on a variety of vehicles including:

  • Late-model GM SUVs
  • Cadillac Escalades
  • Chevrolet Suburbans 
  • Acura MDX and RDX
  • Honda Ridgeline
  • Mazda CX-9

Dunlop SP Sport Signature Still a Top Choice in the High Performance All-Season Category

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 by Gary Stanley

With tire technology advancing quickly these days, it's rare to find a model of tire that stands the test of time and remains competitive in its category year after year. First introduced over six years ago, the Dunlop SP Sport Signature is one of those tires. Even after this many years, it continues to hold its own against newer tires in the High Performance All-Season category. If you're looking for a great all-season performance tire at a good price, the Dunlop SP Sport Signature is for you!

With over 2.6 million miles reported, the tire is currently ranked third in our survey results. This is a higher ranking than other popular tires including the Yokohama AVID ENVigor, Goodyear Eagle GT and BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S. The SP Sport Signature is often praised for its good road feel, quick steering response and great combination of wet and dry traction. 

Take a look at what some of our customers are saying about their experience with the Dunlop SP Sport Signature:

"These have been such fantastic tires that I am now on my third set. Great dry weather traction and awesome treadwear. I have been very pleased with these tires." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2003 Infiniti G35 Sedan

"These tires handle great. I have almost no road noise and they handle great on wet pavement. Even with my aggressive driving habits they wore perfectly. They were a great buy for the money." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2001 Lexus ES300

"The Dunlops have transformed my car. I've gone from such noise to such quiet and smooth riding and handling. For a car with 280,000 miles on it, the difference is astounding. I'm very happy with the purchase of these tires." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 1998 Honda Accord Coupe EX V6

I bought these as a budget-level replacement for a set of Yokohama S-drives. They look aggressive, but have much less dry traction than the s-drives. If you just want a tire for looks and want to save some money they are ok, but I would not consider them a high performance tire. They do seem to work well in the rain.
