Continental’s General-branded AltiMAX RT placed first in Tire Rack’s recent “Touring All-Season Tire Test.” The test was conducted using a size 205/55 R16 T tire on a BMW 328i, and was handled independently by Tire Rack on its test track in South Bend, Ind., according to Continental. The tire distributor tested for noise comfort, ride quality and everyday handling.

The AltiMAX RT, previously rated number one by Tire Rack in an August 2007 test, was again listed as “an excellent all-around standard touring all-season tire.”

Continental said the AltiMax RT features “Visual Alignment Indicators” that help consumers visually identify alignment irregularities so they are able to take proper re-alignment precautions to extend the life of the tire; “Acoustic Modulation Sound Technology,” a sound wave suppression technology that reduces road-tire noise; and a “Twin Cushion Silica Tread Compound,” comprised of high- and low-density treads to deliver ride comfort.
