Tire Pros

Good grip (better than OEM tires) Moderate price Excellent wear

Tire Cons

None

I purchased these with my new wheels, replacing the horrible OEM Dunlop tires that came with my GLI. The stock tires were noisy and offer poor grip. Often spinning the tires under acceleration and pushing when under hard cornering. The General G-MAX tires are not only quieter, but have far more grip than the OEM dunlops, exceeding every Ultra Performance All Season tire I have used to date. My GLI is stage 1 tuned, so about 260hp and now I have to make an effort to spin the tires. Wet traction is improved as well. The tire shoulders are moderately stiff, so some bumps are felt a bit more, but cornering grip is very good. Tire wear to date is almost non existent at 3500 miles. They are rated to 40k miles and based on what I see so far, they should hit close to that mark before needing to be retired.
