"Last year was my first year with this car and I was sliding all over. Trying to drive from a stop sign or red light was horrible and if there was even the tiniest of incline.. forget it. I was spinning. Since I have had these tires on we have had a bad snow storm and road conditions *and my driveway) were awful and I was able to drive to and from work like no body's business! The areas were I know I usually slip and slide or spin the tires... was NOT any problem so far with these tires. Driving in the winter/snow is now a pleasure and is not dreaded as it was last year. I am truly impressed with these tires.." - East Syracuse, NY

I am extremely happy with these tires. My confidence on the road in snowy conditions, even up to a few inches deep, is significantly higher than with my stock tires. Additionally I would like to say, the customer service was stellar. The folks behind the counter were absolutely swamped and still managed to keep their cool and treat everyone with respect. Bravo to you and your staff.

superior handling during a recent snowfall. The car handled like an all wheel drive vehicle. I was able to pass stuck vehicles and climb road inclines during a 28 inch Buffalo,NY snow storm with no problem. I will buy these again.

The new tires are amazing. I was skeptical on which type of tire to purchase especially after having an accident not to long ago but Andre really gave me quality information about the different tires, tread types ect. Andre always goes the extra mile to assist customers. A+ job again Mavis!

So far these tires have been great in the snow, A big improvement over all season tires for sure, I didn't realize what a difference snow tires would make. Sort of like the difference between walking in smooth sole shoes versus climbing boots!

With a bit under 1,000 miles, my initial review is cautiously optimistic. I am not a fan of the ride on dry roads, with the steering and cornering feeling somewhat mushy. Rides much better on wet roads. My experience with the little snow/ice we have had reminds me of the big reason for purchasing these snow tires. They performed admirably, with great traction and the confidence to persevere through our anticipated usuall 100+ inches of snow in Western NY.

Being such a lightweight vehicle I needed to put 100 pounds of weight in the trunk for added traction in heavy snow only. I have the same tires on a heavier vehicle and don't need the extra weight.

These snows tires are an excellent choice! The Altimax Arctic performed well in all types of snow conditions. I used them in wet, slushy, and deep snow up to 7 inches. My front wheel drive van performed better than a AWD vehicle without snow tires. I drive for a living. I would not negotiate the roadways in New York State during he winter months without snows tires. The Altimax Arctic is also by far one of the cheaper quality tires on the market. Make sure you spend the extra money and pick up a set of four. This will give you ultimate traction and braking during the worst conditions.

These tires are excellent! The ride, handling, cornering, is all top shelf. They were great in light snow. I expect them to be the same in deep snow, but we really didn't have any deep snow this past winter. The tires rock though! Also, they are much quieter than I expected them to be. The treadler is better than I expected too; they still look new, even with over 8,000 miles on them.

We bought these tires in December on our way to Vermont. Last December, we had difficulty driving in VT snow, so we wanted a good snow tire. The General Altimax Artic Tire exceeded our expectations. We easily drove up steep, snow covered roads in VT and upstate NY, without losing any traction, and drove confidently back to Georgia on Interstate 81, in a snowstorm. I highly recommend these tires.

I go to college in Fredonia and along with my car being very light, I needed some serious tires to drive in the snow. These tires have worked extremely well for me and i've never felt a loss of traction or control on snow, even at higher RPMs. These tires are fantastic.

Since I live in the Great Northeat, I had these installed on my daughters car in anticipation of snow this winter but to no avail, we hardly got any so I really can't comment on these tires performing in the snow. Other than that, they seem to be a decent tire. No complaints.

This is the 4th set of Altimax Arctic tires I've had. You just can't beat them for the price. I've tried many brands of snow tires and these are one of the best I've used. Living in Western New York is definitely a challenge in winter. I live on a steep dirt road that gets very icy in winter and I've never had a problem getting up or down the hill with these tires. I have the same tires on my 2WD Impala as well. I highly recommend these tires. There are better snow tires, but you'll pay double the price for a minimal traction improvement.

The general Altimax Arctic tires is one of the smartest choices I ever made preparing for winter. I used to go with all-season tires but, this year I went full winter' with all the bad snow storms we had this year, and these tires were brilliant. I compared them to Bridgestones Blizzack Tires because I was told those were the best, and when I did a comparison, the generals had a better rating. And they were a lot cheaper. I am proud to have had the opportunity to make it through the winter storms in N.Y.C. Potholed and short breaking drivers out here there, was absolutely no slippage with these tires. Like I said it got me through this season and I would definitely recommended these tires for winter driving.

Excellent tires on the snow and rain. For the past winter storms we had from Dec 2010 til now on Long Island. I didnt had any problem on slipping, sliding, slowing down or existing on an exit ramp nor merge. I never got stuck. Even though I have a small car and low to the ground. I never had any issue. Except for an plowed street and the snow is at 14-18"ht. Its a great tires to have for the winter, til spring. I would recommend this tires at all.

The only complaint I have is that these tires haven't been as good on ice as I expected. HOWEVER, we have a house in upstate NY and the ice has been absolutely the worst I have ever seen. I'm not at all sure any other tire would have been better. For the money, these are as good as it gets.
