Technology & Benefits of General AltiMAX Arctic Tires
General AltiMAX Arctic tires have a high quantity of sipes (narrow grooves in the read blocks). Because of their 270•F range of angles, the biting edges of the sipes provide grip when the roads are terrible. These tires also push water, slush, and snow out of the way quickly, resulting in high-level traction.
The Reactive Contour Technology (RCT) incorporated into these tires gives them the ability to conform to the driving surface optimal traction. That's not something every tire can do when the temperature drops to near freezing. RCT responds to both the weather conditions affecting the road and the shape of the road itself.
Sometimes, when winter rears it's ugly head, tires alone aren't enough to get a grip. That's when you need to add studs to your tires. In some cities and states, studs are required for winter driving. General AltiMAX Arctic tires have you covered because they're ready to be studded whenever you need.
