While our 2014-15 winter has been very unusual in both temperature and lack of snow, the tires have worked very well in the little snow we have received and in the rain we got as well. They have been great in dry weather (for a snow tire).

Tire Pros

Price. Based off of same mold as a highly regarded Nokian snow tire.

Tire Cons

Due to tread being deep and soft the tires tend to squirm a lot and make the car feel like it wanders a bit.

Ordered a set of these because they got very high ratings on another major tire site and because they are similar to if not out of the same mold as the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 5. They are replacing a set of Hakook iPikes which have a very similar tread pattern and worked quite well in the snow. The Hankooks had a more confidence inspiring feel on the dry pavement as these tend to squirm and require a lot of corrections on the steering wheel. Hopefully I get an opportunity to test them in the snow soon and will report back.

Tire Pros

Reasonably priced, decent rebates, decent in the dry/wet conditions.

Tire Cons

Slightly noisy but that is to be expected from a winter tire in the dry.

This is at least my fourth set of General Altimax Artic tires on three three different vehicles. Usually get 2 winters and 3 summers out of them about 45 to 50,000 miles. They are way less squirmy than other winter tires I have had in the same price range and have always gotten me out of our subdivision in the valley when it does snow in the St Louis area. Which is of course why I run them.
