So, early November saw the first snow to fall here in Halifax, Northern England. Importantly, winter tyres were the order of the day?

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.

We should all be having “fun in the snow”. I certainly did, when I was a kid. Therefore, they should be no reason why we would not do the same as adults.

I know what is not fun? thats driving in snow. Especially in a car fitted on summer tyres. Driving in snow with summer tyres is a miserable experience. We have all done this in the past. Hence, there were times when millions of us just could not get to work. As expected in snowy weather.

In my opinion, this should not happen in modern times. Winter tyres, are not an expensive item any more. The tyre trade has been trying to explain to the motorists about the safety features of fitting winter tyres. Thus , onto their cars, before the bad weather arrives.

I can see a big improvement in way that the public do respond by fitting general altimax arctic. Of course, word of mouth has been a factor of this. Including social media sites. There is no doubt that winter tyres are a major safety feature for the six months of winter. Trying to get out of the snow, very nice winter/snow tyres. In an audi A4. Fun in the snow, General Altimax Arctic Tyres
