General G-MAX AS-03
Follow-Up Review: 1,500 miles on tires

This tire has met my expectations. Tracks a lot better than the Conti DWS. The noise really depends on the road surface material. On newly paved asphalt the tire is very quiet. On concrete, probably no better than any other tire.
Initial Review: 100 miles on tires

I made a mistake and bought the Continental DWS based on the reviews here. On my Genesis, the DWS's pulled hard right even after an alignment. The Genesis has no camber adjustment so whatever tires you put on it better track straight. The dealer believes that it is the tread pattern of the DWS that caused the problem. The dealer sent the DWS back and we replaced them with four of the new General G Max AS-03. The minute we put them on my Genesis, the pulling problem was solved and the car tracked straight. These tires are as quiet as the DWS and the car really feels connected to the road. These General tires are ultra high performance all season. They are not soft mushy tires. I would even consider putting these on my SL500. So far, I am really pleased with these tires. I will write another update after I put a couple of thousand miles on them.
