General’s Altimax Tops Tire Rack Survey

General Tire’s Altimax HP has earned the number one ranking in the Grand Touring All-Season Tire category in an online consumer survey of tires performed by Tire Rack.

Consumers cited the Altimax’s wet and dry traction, hydroplaning resistance, cornering stability, steering response, noise and ride comfort and tread wear as pluses for the tire. Tire Rack conducts these independent consumer surveys, in addition to their own tire tests, to help drivers share their long term tire experiences with fellow consumers researching their next tire purchase, according to Tire Rack’s Web site.

“We are very pleased that the General Tire Altimax HP performed so well in this survey,” said Andreas Gerstenberger, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Continental Tire North America, Inc., General Tire’s parent company. “The Altimax is a key component in our revitalization of the General Tire brand, and since its launch this past spring, the tire has continually delivered a smooth, comfortable ride and long tread life.”

Aside from the General Tire Altimax, the survey included 16 other all-season touring tires from competing brands, including tires from Continental. The ContiProContact SSR finished third and the ContiProContact finished sixth. The entire results for the survey are available at: (Tire Review/Akron)
