The General Altimax UHP is a high performance summer tire manufactured for passenger vehicles. This summer tire has great dry and wet traction, but it will not perform well in winter conditions. The tire’s tread channels water from its footprint, effectively resisting hydroplaning. This model’s larger footprint reduces the tread stress, which slows down the tread wear rate, making the tire last longer. The Visual Alignment Indicator alerts the driver to irregular wear, while the Replacement Tire System clearly indicates when the tire needs to be changed.
The tire’s center grooves and the V-shaped lateral grooves in the tread pattern eliminate water and help resist hydroplaning.
For the first 600 miles of the tire’s life, the Visual Alignment Indicator (VIA) warns the driver of uneven wear on the tires.
Replacement Tire System
The driver is notified by the RTM, or Replacement Tire Monitor, when the tire needs to be changed.
Constant Road Contact
The Reactive Contour Technology allows the tire to react to different road conditions, maintaining constant road contact.
The tire’s tread pattern reduces the road noise by channeling the soundwaves through the tread grooves.
Longer Tread Life
The StabiliTread technology reduces the tread stress on the tire by providing a larger and flatter footprint, extending the tire’s life.
