Great Snow tire

|

I have been using the Altimax Arctic's for a long time. I have tried other brands of snow tires and these always work great. This was my first set with the new tread redesign. I feel that the new design which seems to have a tighter tread patter vs. the old generation is a slight improvement in some area and a draw back in others. I felt that the new design offered better handling in dry pavement and road noise was reduced. The tighter tread pattern was less effective in deeper snow and slush and that was noticeable right away. I put about 8,500 miles on them this winter and the tread looks great. I do believe this new design is not as good as the earlier design but I would still recommend these tires.

AltiMAX Arctic - Pontiac Vibe

|

Tires have been great in the snow. A Vibe with 'All Season' tires is just about useless. These tires make a tremendous difference in the ability of the car to be driven in the winter.
