Rated 3 out of 5�by Good tire, but...... This is my first set of General tires and I have several issues with the Altimax HP. The tires need 2 to 3 miles to completely smooth-out as they are just ever-so-slightly bumpy when you first start out. The other issues are my fault for buying 55,000 mile tires. Under hard braking the ABS brakes go nuts because the tires are no match for the brakes. Under moderate acceleration the tires will chirp when the automatic shifts into 2nd gear and when you switch to sport mode it seriously barks the tires shifting into 2nd and 3rd gear. I've never encountered this situation before with my previous tires and I've learned my lesson. I've been running a 30,000 mile tire with-out any of the above mention problems and will go back to a softer tire. I do believe the Altimax Hp is a good tire and a safe tire, but it's just not for me. I've put 10,000 miles on these tires so far and will get back with TireBuyer for my next set. September 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5�by Best tire at any price! Overall, for this kind of money, no other tire out there can touch these...and many that are way more expensive can't either!Great dry and wet handling, very quiet..handles corners well, even if you are a "spirited" driver...I can't speak for their longevity, as I haven't worn a set out yet...but I do about 25k/yr and rotate every 10k and they wear well and evenly.I'm thinking of stocking up on these in case they ever stop making them. i will be buying another set for the aftermarket rims i have for summer.This will be the 4th set of these tires on my 4th differant vehicle...I loved them on my Corolla and when that finally died, I sold them to a friend who is still running them. I bought a 04 Civic that came with new Coopers...the first time i drove it in the rain, i nearly died...the Coopers just flat out had no wet grip. Replaced them soon after with these HP's...problem solved. I now have them on my 05 Civic (again replacing Coopers) and I can't wait to be safe again. My son also ran HPs on his RSX and loved them.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! January 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5�by Great winter tires! We live in a small rural community with few places to choose from when shopping for tires, and when we went looking for new tires for our 2002 Chevy Cavalier, we had trouble finding any that were affordable. We didn't want to put expensive tires on a car with 160K miles on it. We finally decided to try buying tires online. had an amazing selection and excellent prices, not to mention we got free shipping to our home. The tires arrived in 4 days and as soon as I put them on the car we were impressed with the performance on our winter roads. The tires grip well in the snow, making it easy to go through drifts (even hard ones made by the snow plows) and the traction assist hardly comes on anymore! We were a little worried about the handling of our sport suspension when we went with a touring tire instead of performance tires, but so far no problems. We haven't driven in the rain yet, but have had some days where the snow is melting and the roads are wet and the traction is excellent. Overall I would definitely buy these tires again, and recommend to anyone. January 7, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5�by A smooth ride with a good handdling in rain & snow The Altimax-HP tires are a definite improvement compared to the Dunlop Signatures that I exchanged them for. Although we are near the end of the snowy season, I was torn with getting snow tires, tired and embarrassed of getting stuck in my driveway. It hasn't been a problem since I changed the tires. So far driven in about a foot of snow and no slipping & sliding like I did with the Dunlop tires. I have a tendency to take corners faster than I should and almost got into a couple of accidents with the Dunlop tires. I'm also very satisfied with the noise reduction compared to the Dunlops, which is a big issue for me. They are noisier on concrete (as another review stated) but smooth & quiet on blacktop. I've had the tires for a month now and so far, so good with meeting my expectations. My only concern is that the side wall is a bit soft and hoping it's not going to be an issue. The Altimax-HP tires makes my car feel like it's a new ride...with the combination of getting it clean and shinny lol... excellent all weather tires! March 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5�by Great tire I used to be bounced around the road a lot and the steering felt loose. After installing these tires it straightened everything out. It's no longer a chore to drive. July 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5�by great for the price Put them on my S60 T5..saved 240.00 bucks..almost as good as the conti's that where on the car..for the money so worth it...:) November 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5�by Georgia driver I normally purchase Falken or Goodyear tires for my Toyota Collora, after reading some of the reviews I decided to give the General Tire a try, I have to say that I am very satisfied with these tires, they respond well on dry roads, wet Georiga roads, but I was mostly surprised how quiet the tires are. I like the tires so much I think that I will purchase a set of General Tires for my other vehicle. June 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5�by Best Tire for the money! Period! Don't know if I've ever had a better tire on any vehicle. Because of limited options for a Ford Freestyle Limited (225-60-18) I thought I was settling for these Generals as opposed to higher priced options. I couldn't have been more wrong. Unsurpassed wet traction, smooth as silk ride comfort and confidence in spirited driving, all wrapped up in one tire. I even got to work in one of the rare snow storms in NC when no one else made it on snowy roads. The cherry on top is I got 60k miles with still enough tread to pass state inspection.Can't go wrong here. June 17, 2014

So far so good....

I ordered these tires online from 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.
