Tire Pros

Low speed traction

Tire Cons

Radial runout (tires are out of round) Impossible to balance Steering wheel vibrations felt at 50+ mph

These tires are a huge disappointment. At speeds above 50 mph the tires cause massive front end vibrations. Had them rebalanced 3 times, eventually getting a Road Force Balancer report which showed major radial runout. 20 lbs (!!!) of radial runout for 1st tire, 16 lbs for 2nd tire, 12 lbs 3rd tire, 12 lbs 4th tire. This is completely unacceptable, yet General will only replace one tire under warranty. Never had a balancing problem with Kumhos or Bridgestones or even the substandard OEM Good Years that came on the car. The General G-MAX AS-03 are made in Brazil, clearly there is no quality control whatsoever in that plant. Stay away from General at all costs!

Tire Pros

Good price, good wet traction, decent snow traction.

Tire Cons

Have not driven on the tires enough to see how fast they wear.

Good tire for the price. Tires handle puddled roads very well and have done reasonably well with the snows of the 2012 winter.
