General Altimax Arctic

AltiMAX Arctic radials are General Tire's Studdable Winter tires developed for the drivers of sport cars, coupes, sedans, vans and crossover vehicles that desire to use traditional methods of enhancing wintertime traction. AltiMAX Arctic radials are designed to offer high levels of traction at low temperatures.

AltiMAX Arctic radials use General Tire's All-WeatherDual Tread compound to enhance cold weather flexibility and wet traction. The compound is molded into a tread design with a Center Stability Rib and directional pattern to combine straight-line stability on dry roads with water evacuation and hydroplaning resistance on wet and slush-covered roads. The AltiMAX Arctic radial's 270-degrees of high-density siping across the face of the tire enhances snow traction when accelerating, cornering or braking. Alternating rows of metal studs can be added in the shoulder and intermediate tread blocks to increase traction on hard packed snow and icy roads. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts on top of a polyester carcass featuring General Tire's Reactive Contour Technology to react to different road conditions and maintain better contact with the road surface.

General AltiMAX Arctic tires meet the industry's severe snow service requirements and are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol.
