General Altimax Arctic
General Altimax Arctic
I am not complaining! However, we were very busy fitting snow tyres. One of our long standing customers. Hence bought a new set of 185R60T15 General Altimax Arctic Tyres for a total of £284, installed and out the door. The customer took our word for the quality and endurance of these winter tyres.
So, the driver who made this video, went a step further, “Since it seemed hard to find reviews of these online, I thought I’d whip up a short video”. The guy came up with the following facts
General Altimax Arctic some facts
1. These are great on dry roads. Hence, I have been driving them on dry pavements for the last couple of weeks. Consequently, they’re almost unnoticeable. Contrast that to the Winterforce. So, where they would throw you from side to side for the first 1 k to 1.5 k miles (need to really wear them in).
2. Wet pavement:
Successfully, handle beautifully. Perfect traction during the two rain storms we had previously.
3. Sloppy wintery mix:
Unreal. Just watch the video above. The deep tread throws the slush off the wheels so you don’t even notice it. Earlier, on this day, I was driving my all season tires on a different car and the slush would throw the car from side to side and create that nasty sound hitting the wheel-wells.
4. Grip: Perfect.
Last year this Camry had pretty bad tires, so I’ve always viewed it as a death trap, in any type of winter weather. This test proved the complete opposite! So, now the thing feels like it has 4-wheel drive. The grip really is nice. So, early this evening I was driving my Honda Accord. Importantly, with all-season tyres fitted. Subsequently, and was slipping and sliding on the side roads. Importantly, the winter tires on the Camry? Nothing. Felt great.
I’ll post more reviews as we roll into the season and we get deeper snow. I’ll try to make them a little more exciting too:).
Thanks for watching! Any questions, let me know.
