General Tire AltiMAX Arctic LT review
What is it?
The General Tire AltiMAX Arctic LT is a studdable winter/snow tire designed for exclusively winter use on heavy-duty pickup trucks, SUV's, full-size vans and commercial vehicles.
Strengths and weaknesses?
Exceptional winter performance, as would be expected. Light snow, deep snow, ice... the AltiMAX Arctic LT does it all with aplomb. Treadlife is also a strong point, as is wet road condition traction.
How does it compare?
Favorably against the limited category competition. There is virtually no performance differential between the AltiMAX Arctic LT and the Firestone Winterforce LT / Firestone Winterforce UV.
- Treadlife Warranty: None
- Uniformity Warranty: 1 year, first 2/32" of wear
Anything else to know?
With essentially equal pricing, it's truly a toss up between the AltiMAX Arctic LT and the aforementioned Firestone options. Any of the above are proven to get you through winter's worst.
With that in mind, we'd recommend the option with the best pricing at the time of purchase. Our Tire Deals area may be of help with that process.
Install in sets of four only, or you'll be dealing with a potentially hazardous handling imbalance.
