The General Altimax Arctic is a studdable winter tire specially designed for drivers who are looking for superior wintertime traction, stability, and reliable handling. Ideal for coupes, sedans, minivans, and crossovers, the General Altimax Arctic performs best during low temperatures especially since it is molded to accommodate metal studs which are optional to add upon use. It features an all-weather dual tread compound which further enhances its performance in cold and wet weather. The tread design has a directional pattern combined with a center stability rib to provide straight-line stability on roads that are dry. It also has the ability to evacuate water efficiently while increasing resistance to hydroplaning when driving on roads that are wet and slush-covered. To further enhance this is the high-density siping which gives it superior traction during acceleration, cornering, and braking. To get the most out of the General Altimax Arctic, it is recommended to use it in sets of four.

  • Reactive Contour Technology allows it to react according to road conditions while maintaining contact on the road
