The General Altimax RT has a UTQG rating of 600-A-B (tread wear = 600, traction = A, temperature resistance = B). The manufacturer offers a tread-wear warranty of 70,000 miles. A self-described conservative driver who posted a review on a consumer products testing site says the tires are still going strong after almost 80,000 miles. The speed capacity is rated T, or 118 mph. In addition, this tire comes equipped with special features such as a replacement monitor that indicates when the tire's tread has worn down and a Visual Alignment Indicator to help identify when the tires should be realigned to help extend the tread life.
The General Altimax RT receives high praise from users as an all-season tire that performs exceptionally well on wet and dry pavement, although some users caution that it could do better in winter weather. While this may not be the best all-season option for drivers in regions such as the snowy Northeast, it's an excellent choice for moderate climates and for drivers who switch to snow tires during the winter.
