Rated 4.5 out of 5�by 367reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5�by Mr. I drive 25 miles each way 5 days a week. I bought these General Altimax Arctic tires for winter driving around Pittsburgh, PA. I am a master Honda technician, and I am very pleased with these tires. I even got a set for my mother's Honda Fit. Dry traction is excellent, wet traction is very good, and snow traction is very good as well. At the time of this review, there is about 6 inches of snow on the ground, so these got a thorough snow test this past week. I have yet to deal with ice, hence the (3) score. These tires ride relatively smooth and quiet. Minimal noise can be heard, but it is a snow tire compound so that is to be expected. They are still quiet though. I believe these tires can be studded as well. I drive a mix of hills and twists every day, including back roads to 2 and 4 lane highways. I drive with some enthusiasm from time to time, so I feel these tires have great traction overall. These tires are a great deal from Tire Buyer. December 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5�by going around macho 4x4s from a stop on ice I live in the city and commute to work 26 miles into the CO mountains. I go from 5800' up to 8600' then back down a windy canyon to work at 7500'. the climb starts 6 miles into my commute. my car is FWD so I got Altimax all seasons for warmer weather and these for Oct-May. after 4 winters, it's almost time for a new set. do the math... my commute alone is around 7700 high speed, curvy mountain miles per season. add another 1000-2500 winter city miles, that's over 35k moderately aggressive miles on a set that probably could make it thru one more (mild) Colorado winter. but I'm not gambling. last spring we had a spring storm that dropped 6" snow on sun warmed roads. thanks to a cold front, the bottom layer turned to ice that made me Bambi on my driveway. but work had not been called off and no delayed start called so I joined the bumper cars. 7 miles into my drive I get to the Lookout Mtn stretch and traffic is mostly stopped, spinning tires on ice, 18 wheelers jackknifing and sliding backwards. the big wheel 4x4 in the fast lane is spinning knobbies and torquing sideways. I come to a stop to wait to see how far they'll both slide. Knobbie hits the median strip and pounds his steering wheel, finally taking his foot off the gas. Trucker jackknifing into middle lane gets tires slid to stop on right edge rumble strip. from dead stop, I put my automatic sport coupe in 2nd gear and putt-putt S curves around the noses of the vehicles. trucker waves and grins. knobbie grips steering wheel and glares at silver-hair maneuvering around his spun-out SUV.lesson here? It's not the 4wd it's the 5" of rubber that meets the road. and in the winter, it better be wriggley-soft and well siped..these do very well at siphoning water to prevent hydroplaning. quite good at 5" or less of snow but a more aggressive sidewall would improve moving in foot-deep stuff. they are fairly quiet, and aside from a bit of jello wiggle on warm highways that takes a few days to adjust your driving to, the dry grip is very good. I feel totally in control moving to avoid elk, on long downhill curves, or on hard braking, when you really need straight tracking.I love driving on these. I know what my car is going to do, and I can avoid the airport rental ski-rack SUVs with hard rubber all seasons.if you think these handle poorly, then you've not driven them on ice or sub-zero days when you NEED soft rubber. Those of you who like me, aren't wealthy but enjoy fine vehicles and equipment should appreciate the low price and nice performance of these. October 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5�by Second time I've bought these Bought my first set three winters ago. Had them studded just as I will be doing t this set. I only rated these good on quietness because of the studs. If I can find them in 2018, I'll be getting another set. Highly recommend them. October 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5�by Very pleased with overall performance Excellent snow tire, never left me stranded in deep snow or ice covered roads October 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5�by Mr The general tire company has always been a good choice for me.I recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable tire source for wear and dependability. August 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5�by Excellent winter tire I have dedicated winter tires for all my autos. These tires are almost as good as Nokians Hakka LT2. Would recommend these to everyone. Excellent for snow but not as good as Nokians on ice. Steering response is a bit sluggish but that is the characteristic of winter tires. The only reason for not buying Nokians was the price difference. August 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5�by Just as good as Blizzak Tire. They handles as good or better than the Bridgestone Blizzak tire I had and they ride smoother and are less expensive .Would recommend them to anyone for winter driving. October 8, 2014

TIREBUYER CUSTOMER REVIEWS

So far so good....

I ordered these tires online from TireBuyer.com and they were delivered overnight. Great customer service. As far as the tires go, I have had them installed for about 3 weeks now and so far so good.
