General Altimax RT43 Rating
General Altimax RT43, released in July 2013, is designed to replace the original Altimax RT and seems like this updated model has done a good job. This new pneumatic tire is intended to offer drivers of cuts and sedans, small trucks, and crossovers improved stability and handling during all seasons with more convenience.
The Asymmetrical pattern blends the high-tech silica tread with peak anti-slip technology, which improves dry and wet traction together with improved trip convenience.

Tread contains two steel loops, a polyester cord body for additional support and strength, and extra comfort for riding. Treadlife is one of the longest in this class of tires and is backed by General with a guarantee of 75,000 miles.
A cool additional touch is a replacement pneumatic monitor with a stamp indicating “replace pneumatics” in terms of treadwear visually. They also provide visual alignment indicators that prolong the life of your vehicle by showing that your car is malaligned. Sizes of 13 to 18 inches and speeds of up to H are affordable.
- Dry and wet traction
- Ride comfort
- Tread life
- 75K mile warranty
- None that would disappoint
In this latest RT43, General has a wonderful tire. They built it for competitors such as Continental TrueContact and Michelin Defender T+H, and this tire is no disappointment in this respect.
Traction on dry or snowy road surfaces is one of the highest in class. The steering is tight and reactive that gives you a feeling of confidence behind the wheel. Tire traction is exceptional through the entire speed spectrum and on all but the toughest road conditions the ride is easy. The noise on this tire is limited due in some cases to the compound twin cushion tread.
Winter traction is very good in light to moderate snow, as well as on lighter amounts of ice. Of course, tread life is another area where this model excels. With a 75,000-mile tread guarantee, you may find yourself trading in your vehicle before ever replacing the tires again. Overall, the Altimax RT43 is among the best all-season tires on the market today.
