General Tire AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated) review
What is it?
The General Tire AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated) is a grand touring all season tire designed for coupes and sedans. Often used as an OE replacement/upgrade tire.
Strengths and weaknesses?
The AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated) is well above average across all evaluative metrics.
Delivers excellent dry and wet condition performance, as well as commendable snow/winter condition capabilities.
Data suggests that it can't quite match grand touring all season category leaders like the Bridgestone DriveGuard when it comes to comfort, and is just short of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology when it comes to outright performance in all conditions.
How does the AltiMAX RT43 compare?
Users rank the AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated) just shy of the very best in the grand touring all season category -- fifth out of thirty-five tires.
Anything else to know?
Falls just short on performance, but bests the class-leaders on price. With the AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated) you'll save ~$100 per set (in a common 17" size) over the aforementioned alternatives from Bridgestone and Continental.
A very solid all-around option, and an optimum blend of performance and value. Recommended.
