General Tire AltiMAX Arctic review
What is it?
The General Tire AltiMAX Arctic is a studdable snow/winter tire designed for exclusively winter use on coupes, sedans, minivans and crossovers, as well as passenger-oriented light duty pickup trucks and SUV's.
Strengths and weaknesses?
Excellent overall snow performance in both light and deep snow conditions. Dry and wet road condition capabilities are on par with other studdable winter/snow tires, and ice handling is best in class.
The AltiMAX Arctic also delivers the best ride quality and the least noise out of the studdable winter/snow tire options.
How does the AltiMAX Arctic compare?
The AltiMAX Arctic is the second most popular studdable winter/snow tire on the market (only the Firestone Winterforce has more reported miles), and has received almost unanimous top marks from users, and significant user loyalty.
Anything else to know?
Hard to go wrong within the studdable winter/snow tire category, but on an all-around performance and comfort basis, the AltiMAX Arctic is perhaps the most ideal option of them all.
Install in sets of four only, or you'll be dealing with a potentially hazardous handling imbalance.
