Enhanced construction has given General Tire's all-season touring tire, the AltiMAX™ RT43, a quiet and comfortable ride, year-round traction, even wear, and extended treadlife.

  • Replacement Tire Monitor Technology (RTM®):
    Unique stamp that visually indicates need for tire replacement by changing from “Replacement Tire Monitor” to “Replace Tire” based on tread wear
  • Visual Alignment Indicators (VAI®):
    Extends the life of the tire by visually identifying vehicle misalignment
  • Peak Anti-Slip Sipe Design Technology (PASD®):
    Increases the number of biting edges for traction on slippery roads
  • Low Surface Abrasion Technology (LSA®):
    Construction that reduces tread distortion as the tire rolls, resulting in less surface abrasion and promoting even treadwear and extended treadlife
  • Acoustic Modulation Sound Technology (AMS®):
    Sound wave suppression technology that works to reduce road tire noise for a quiet ride
  • Twin Cushion Silica Tread Compound:
    High and low density tread delivers the extraordinary ride comfort
  • Reactive Contour Technology:
    Smart contour reacts to differing road conditions to maintain contact with road surface for increased driving confidence

Have these on a 86 Toyota 2WD truck with 468,000 miles and any sets of tires. Pirelli, Bridgestone, Yokohama, BF Goodrich, General GT These are the best overall daily driver tires out of all of them. These replaced the excellent General Altimax RT they stopped making. Those had a better handling tread, but these handle almost as well. Dry and wet traction is very good. You can drive in the rain as aggressively as on dry roads. Never slip in the wet. Also a very quiet tire. Tread wear is good. Three years old tires with 21,000 miles and treads look like new. For the low price this quality tire is hard to beat for daily and spirited driving. I drive the truck hard and the tires grip.

Nice deep tread. Seems to wear very well. Performance is good. With the tread being so deep and somewhat aggressive, it is a loud tire. I'd buy them again because of how long lasting they are though. I can live with the noise.

I would recommend these tires , they are a very quite good handling tire. I only installed the tires a month ago and so far I am very pleased with the ride.
