ALTIMAX ARCTIC 12
General Altimax Arctic 12 Tire
The General Altimax Arctic 12 studdable winter tire is designed to offer passenger cars, minivans, compact SUVs, and crossover owners the traction, handling, and grip you need when driving in harsh winter conditions. Built to replace the older Altimax Arctic, General has added a range of features on this new model that is engineered to provide drivers with improved safety and performance on snow and ice.
This Winter tire gives you much-improved braking and grip when driving in dry, moist, and severely cold conditions, as the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol sports. An innovative winter tread compound is developed to stay flexible at cold temperatures, while a directional tread pattern provides additional tension on both dry and wet flooring.

This pneumatic continuous center rib enhances steering responsiveness and strengthens the handling of dry road surfaces to increase the efficiency of the pneumatic process. (General said the Arctic 12 gives the older Arctic 18 percent longer treadwear.)
Exclusive tire-stitched sips combine grippy dirt, hard-pack, and ice with angled tread blocks. We’ve heard that a number of drivers talk about excellent traction, reduced braking distance, and safe acceleration on this model.
General Tire has pinned the Arctic 12 to accept TSMI #12 silver-colored metallic studs for additional traction. In the event you need even further performance. General offers 14 to 19-inch sizes, with all sizes having a T-speed rating. There’s also a limited tread warranty included.
