With the downpours in florida, this tire is great in the rain. It handles well, cornering is sharp, quiet and smooth. Without a doubt, the best tire I have ever owned. I would say, buy it!!

I ordered this tire from TD and received it within the promised amount of time. I would definitely buy from TD again. Pros: Quiet ride, seems like gas mileage has increased a bit. I am still trying to figure out how these tires will perform in light to medium snow. They are supposed to have good wet performance but actual driving will be the key. Sometimes the tires feel like they lose their grip on the road when I take sharp turns and I do not know how this will translate to when it starts snowing. The front tires seem to grip the road but the rears are what feel like they are slipping. If possible, I will update once I have some more experience with these tires in wet and snowy conditions.

I have had these tires on for 2000 miles and I am completely satisfied with them. It is hard to find a quality tire for a fair price in this size. It has a tread depth indicator built into the tread. They were easy to balance tires with no match mounting required. I took off BFgoodrich tires and they were very noisy. They begin cracking after just 3 years. I highly recommended tire brand!

I purchased these tires for my daughter and grandson. She wanted a tire that was great in the snow, but all season. After a lot of research settled on this tire. She has driven here in Salt Lake on very snowy days and she says these tires are great, up and down hill in the snow, and she has driven in 6 inch snow. Will see how long they wear, but so far they are a quiet, comfortable ride.

Excellent Value

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful:

2nd day they were on my car, I hit ice and snow, and I can say these tires were superior to the factory Michelin's that came with the vehicle. They are also quieter than the factory tires when they were new, forget about them when they were 1/2 worn, the factory tires became very loud, and worthless in the rain and snow. The Generals are just an exceptional tire, and the best value. My second set of Generals and I am very impressed. As far as wear, time will tell... If you need a great tire reasonably priced, Generals should be at the top of your list!

Great Tires

This is my second set (4) of these tires. First set went on my '93 Buick Regal last fall. 15000 miles on these and wear is very even and only down to about 90%. (currently 10/32 on rear and 9/32 on front and they only start with 11/32) They did great in upstate NY snow. Not as good as studded but as a professional truck driver with a couple million accident free miles IMO these tires are well built. I installed these myself and two of them took no weights to balance. Second set (4) was for my Daughter's Intrigue. Notice I put aggressive driving style above. She's young and very confident. Hope it doesn't get her in trouble. She learned from the best.

Tires are just what treadepot said they would be. They ride very good and are much quitter than the firestones they replaced. This is a much better tire in the rain.

After about 800 miles, I think these tires are going to be very good. Mileage is better than it was on a set of old Michelins. The handling is very good. The tires are smooth and quiet. No complaints. I don't know how the wear is going to be yet, but unless it is atrocious, I will buy these tires again. The guy who balanced these tires was very picky, and got it right. With all tires, it is better to pay a little more, and get the job done correctly. If you don't, you will never know how good a tire really is. These tires balanced well and are very uniform.

TIRE RIDES AND HANDLES GOOD. WEAR IS GOOD. HYDROPLANES A LITTLE BUT STILL GOOD TIRE. CHOSE GENERAL TIRE OVER MICHELIN AND GOODYEAR AS THEY WERE BETTER PRICED FOR A 75000 MILE TIRE. HAVE BEEN VERY PLEASED WITH THIS TIRE MAY NOT GET 75000 OUT OF THEM, 40000 IS ABOUT ALL I GET OUT OF ANY TIRE THAT I'VE BOUGHT OVER THE LAST 30 YRS.

I got these tires in the hope that I could avoid getting dedicated winter tires for my car. I was hopeful because of the great snow rating that they received, but in practice for me they still slip around far more than a good tire should in the snow. No tires have ever been good on this car in the snow, so it seems like a dedicated set of winters are what I need. Other than the mediocre winter handling they have performed well with no noticeable road noise or issues yet.

These Altimax RT43s are the worst tires I've ever bought. They would not balance. I bought the tires in August 2014. One was replaced in October that was defective. The vibration still continued. I had the front hubs, bearings and half shaft replaced. The vibration continued. I was advised by the Hyundai tech to try to road force balance them. I did and 3 of the 4 remaining tires had excessive road force. On May 12, the dealer replaced the RT 43 with Cooper CS3 Touring and all is well. The Cooper CS3 gives a better ride, it is quieter and has better dry traction. I'm waiting on rain for the wet handling.
