Very early initial review: Purchased these tires after being extremely pleased with the set of General Altimax RT's on my wife's vehicle. So far, these tires appear superior to the Continentals they replaced on my Charger in every aspect that can be currently evaluated. If I get better treadwear (it would be impossible not to) and decent traction in the snow, they are superior in everyway to the Continentals.
I don't understand why there is such a huge disparity in quality between the two brands considering Continental owns General. I'm not going to complain though seeing as how these Generals are around 40% cheaper than comparable tires. I've said it before, but these tires are easily the best tire for the money.
I will write another review after winter to report on the snow traction/handling.
