The top performer around bends

For compact- and middle-class, sporty cars and MPVs.

The new Altimax Sport guarantees precise steering response and safe driving on curvy and also on wet roads. Furthermore the modern silica tread compound bridges the gap between the target conflict wet performance and rolling resistance.

  • Born in the USA, General Tire offers products for all types of vehicles, for all seasons and all terrains
  • Shorter braking distance
  • Precise steering response and safe driving on curvy roads
  • Low fuel consumption and high mileage
  • Fits perfectly for example to VW Golf, BMW 3 Series and Ford S-Max

Precise steering response and safe driving on curvy roads. Outer shoulder blocks give the tyre lateral rigidity and optimum stability. The steering response is always precise – for safe driving even on winding roads.

Shorter braking distances on wet roads. Wide grooves running around the circumference and open shoulder blocks quickly displace water from the tyre contact area. This shortens the stopping distance.

Low fuel consumption and high mileage. In order to achieve both good performance in wet conditions and low rolling resistance, the innovative silica compound ensures minimal deformation and optimum hysteresis. This decreases fuel consumption and increases mileage.

VAI - Visual Alignment Indicator signals incorrect alignment. Over the first 1,000 kilometres, Visual Alignment Indicator technology (VAI) signals to the driver if the tread is not wearing evenly due to incorrect alignment. This significantly increases the service life of the tyre.

RTM - Replacement Tire Monitor for greater safety. RTM technology tells the driver in good time when a tyre change is due, which increases safety.

 EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.

Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.

The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.

With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.

Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.

Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
