Overview

General Tire has been designing and manufacturing tyres for over a century, and their innovations continue to improve the safety of drivers around the world. 
The General Altimax Comfort car tyre incorporates new and exciting concepts in tyre design, such as the Visual Alignment Indicator and the Replacement Tyre Monitor, which help to improve safety and improve the tyre's performance. The tyre's unique tread design ensures that water is quickly and efficiently dispersed to ensure the outstanding handling characteristics are never compromised even in the wettest conditions. At the same time, braking distances are decreased, which is an important safety factor, particularly in the rain when braking distances can increase dramatically. The tread compound used in the manufacture of the tyre is designed to minimise any rolling resistance to reduce fuel consumption and increase mileage.

The General Altimax Comfort is designed to minimise the risk of aquaplaning, or hydroplaning as it is also known. Aquaplaning is a very real danger, particularly on British roads where the weather can so often be inclement. It occurs when a car tyre is unable to disperse the water on the road's surface quickly enough. As the layer of water develops in front of the tyre, eventually the pressure of water on the road exceeds the pressure of the tyre, at which point the tyre is raised slightly on to a layer of water, which causes it to lose traction. This is extremely dangerous, as it means that braking and steering control are lost until the car tyres find purchase with the road surface again. With rigid treads on specific areas of the tyre, the General Altimax Comfort creates great stability to ensure that steering is not compromised and the aquaplaning risk is minimised.
Every General Altimax Comfort tyre incorporates a Visual Alignment Indicator (VAI), which allows you to check quickly and easily for any irregular wear to the tyre. There are three sets of VAIs around the tyre's circumference, represented by sipes of 1.6mm situated on opposite shoulder blocks. These should wear evenly, so if one side shows more wear than the other, it indicates wheel misalignment.

The tyres also benefit from General Tire's Replacement Tire Monitor (RTM) technology. The words 'Replacement Tire Monitor' appear three times on the central rib, but as the tyre wears down over time the words develop into the inscription 'Replace Tire', which removes any element of doubt about when to fit new tyres.
