Great on rain and snow

|

I was worried about buying winter tires for the chicagoland area because they say they wear easily, but i took a chance after i noticed that i kept buying really good name brand tires and they would be horrible on rain and snow, best decision i took because overall they have lasted me 3 years, just bought another set and will never buy another brand again, hopefully general tire dont discontinue this brand or change the way they make them.

Best winter tire for my money

|

I had originally purchased a set of 4 for an 02 Impreza Outback which was totaled shortly after installing those and sold them to a buddy who immediately put them on a Scion XB and swears by them as far as quiet regarding road noise traction and handling in all weather.
I purchased another set for my 05 Legacy Outback wagon and put some 12,000 miles on those before removing them upon the sale of my car and found them to be quite remarkable in all weather conditions. I also noticed a very low noise level and not a lot of we're at 12000 miles considering the aggressive tread pattern. All in all very impressive tire for the money. I bought another set for my girlfriend's Forester and she loves them they've been on her car for two seasons now and show very little wear after almost 18000 miles.

Very Satisfied

I bought these tires in the beginning of the winter and used them throughout the season. The tires that came with my new vehicle were useless on the snow and ice. I live in upstate NY and we have a lot of both. The General tires handled the snow and ice with ease. There was an immediate difference in how my car handled. It hugged the road instead of sliding and braking was noticeably better. The car felt grounded and I felt much safer once these tires were on. They show very little wear after almost 12,000 miles. I would buy them again and recommend them without hesitation.

Awesome winter tires!

This is my fifth set of General Altima’s Artic Tire’s and absolutely love them. Bought them for an F250 to plow snow and am ready to by another set for my 2016 Rogue in the fall.
