With over a century's experience in the design and manufacture of road tyres, General Tire is well known as a leading tyre company. It was originally formed in 1915, and technology may have changed beyond all recognition since those early days, but the company's commitment to providing the motorist with great choices continues today under the ownership of Continental.
The General Altimax Sport car tyre has been carefully designed to provide the highest levels of performance possible in a summer tyre. This makes it the ideal choice for anyone wanting that all-important extra grip, which is so necessary on winding roads. The manufacturer guarantees that steering precision is maintained on both wet and dry roads, ensuring driver and passenger safety at all times.
General Tire has used its considerable experience to create the Altimax Sport tyre, including open shoulder blocks which, combined with the wide grooves around the circumference of the tyre, help to disperse water quickly in wet conditions, ensuring shorter braking distances. The shoulder blocks provide a great degree of stability on the road, allowing extremely precise responses to the steering, which makes for safer driving on winding roads. At the same time, the silica tread compound provides a safe and stable driving experience, whether you are driving on wet or dry roads, helping to improve fuel consumption.
The Altimax Sport features Replacement Tyre Monitor technology (RTM), which allows the driver to see at a glance whether the tyre needs replacing. The words 'Replacement Tyre Monitor' appears three times on the circumference of the tyre, but this changes to 'Replace Tyre' just before the tread wears down to the minimum depth, as indicated by the Tread Wear Indicator bars. This feature does away with guesswork and ensures that you can arrange for replacement tyres before the current tyres become dangerous.
All Altimax Sport tyres also feature a Visual Alignment Indicator (VAI), which helps to prevent uneven wearing of your tyres when in use. This clever feature makes use of two extra sipes (the grooves on a tyre that help with grip and road holding), located on opposite sides of the tyre. They should wear evenly, but if one side wears quicker than the other, then it indicates that the wheels are not perfectly aligned.
The Altimax Sport tyre is backed by General Tire's Accident Warranty, which ensures peace of mind should you experience any problems. As long as the tread of your tyre is above the minimum depth of 3mm, the company will refund a significant proportion of the purchase price to use against a replacement.
