We have a 2006 Honda Accord that used to have what many folks would call "top-notch" Michelin tires on it. Nevertherless, the difference between the Altimax HP and the Michelins is astounding. With the Generals, you feel like you are really gripping the road instead of skating along like we felt from day one with the Michelins. In every category, whether it is wet weather traction, dry weather traction, snow, ride quality, you name it, this tire is a top perfromer and exudes confidence. The only down side if you want to call it that, is when it comes to spirited driving. The Generals will take fast turns with slightly more sway and give than the Michelins but not enough in my book to matter a hoot. It's hard to describe in a review like this the significant difference these tires have made on our car so all I can say is if you are in the market, buy this tire. You will not regret it. Oh, and I forgot to mention that you can buy about four of these for what you'd spend on two replacement equivalent Michelins. Amazing. The real question is how does Michelin compete?

When the local shop told me that my tires where bad and that to replace all 4 would cost $500, I got a sick feeling in my stomach. Then I thought why not try our Walmart, and good for me that I did, they have these for $64 each and the reviews for this tire on the internet are very good. See tirerack and consumer reports reviews, they give it high marks, but the V rated tire gets low marks, so dont waste your money on the V rated, stick with H. I had them mounted at Walmart without lifetime balance or road hazard for a mere $48 with valve stems. So far, the ride is very very smooth, braking is improved and the ride is very quiet, I dont realize how fast I am driving, cause it all feels like 30mph. I normally purchase better named brand tires, but this time I thought I would try out Generals, they are not that generic and the warranty is just as good as the rest.

This tire has to be one of the most overlooked tires for someone looking to replace the tires on their large automobile (2000 Grand Marq) . It has many built-in aids for determining overall wear, wheel alignment issues and special rubber compounding for a smooth ride. Reviews I have read noted this tire is supposed to be excellent in wet or slippery conditions, something the previous tires were deficient in. These tires replaced some aged Michelins and the ride and handling differences were noticeable even at low speeds. It also is a good-looking tire on the car. I paid $20 less per tire than the comparable Michelins, as well. Overall, with only a few thousand miles on them, an excellent tire.

At first I couldn't decide between General Altimax and Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus with lower rolling resistance, but went with these because I couldn't find a rebate at the time for the former and these seemed like a decent value. I don't know how they'll perform in the long run (and so I'm slightly ambivalent about saying yes to recommending to a friend), but so far I like the wet traction and the noise level is generally good. I did inflate them to 8 PSI over the automaker's recommendation of 30 PSI, because to me they were a little too soft & bouncy, and may not have yielded the best MPG either. Ride quality hasn't suffered much, and judging by the road grime on the tread I have the pressure about right for my car (the contact patch is reasonable for tread life and safety). If they hold up as long as my previous set with no problems, I'll be happy.

I bought these tires for a 99 Mazda 626. I traveled through a terrible rainstorm last night and these tires performed exceptionally well!!! There were rain puddles on the road of about 3-4 inches and the car did not pull or slide at all when I traveled through them. I am very glad that I purchased these tires from Walmart.com

  • A. The only applicable treadwear rating is the Uniform Tire Quality Grading (UTQG). The UTQG is made up of 3 components, treadwear, traction, and temperature. The treadwear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test track. The AltiMAX HP has a UTQG grade of 440, this means it wore 4.4 twice as long on the government test course under specified test conditions as one graded 100. It is wrong to link treadwear grades with your projected tire mileage. The relative performance of tires depends upon the actual conditions of their use and may vary due to driving habits, service practices, differences in road characteristics and climate.

  • A. Look under specifications and check to see the speed rating. It's either one of these two: 55,000 Mile Limited Treadwear WARRANTY - All H Rated 40,000 Mile Limited Treadwear WARRANTY - All V Rated the 195/60R14's are H rated = 55k.
