The General Altimax RT is General Tire's standard touring all season tire. General developed the Altimax RT to address the many challenges faced by today’s coupe, sedan, van, crossover and SUV drivers. The RT is designed to combine reliability, comfort and tire tread life, as well as provide year round traction, even in light snow.
The General Altimax RT features a Twin Cushion Silica Tread Compound. General Tire features a high density all season top compound for year round traction and long wear above a low density foundation compound that absorbs road vibrations to provide a comfortable ride. The tread compound is molded into a symmetric tire tread design featuring sweeping, high angle tread grooves that are sized using sound wave suppression to reduce road noise for a quiet ride. Twin steel belts stabilize the tread area for great handling, while a polyester cord body enhances ride quality and offers low tire tread noise.
