ALTIMAX WINTER PLUS

A true expert for the winter

General Tire has been developing tires for almost 100 years. All of this experience, precisely aligned to the winter road conditions, has been optimally combined to create the new ALTIMAX WINTER PLUS.
Distinctive ‘zig-zag’ grooves allow the best possible winter traction and cornering stability on snow and ice. The wide longitudinal and lateral grooves in the tread ensure additional safety on wet roads.

The new tread of the Altimax Winter plus provides direction through the tread design. It firmly guides the vehicle along wintry roads through rain, snow and slush. This provides optimum safety even in the event of hydroplaning with effectively shortened braking distances and greater cornering stability.

 

‘Zig-zag’ ribs for optimum winter traction and cornering stability in snow and ice:

Zig Zag
  • The 'zig-zag' tread keeps the snow in the groove, providing optimal winter traction and cornering stability in snow and ice
  • High number of ‘zig-zag’ sipes at different angles ensure traction and directional control on winter roads

 

Wide longitudinal and lateral grooves reduce the risk of aquaplaning and provide traction:

Wide longitudinal
  • Wide longitudinal and lateral grooves ensure rapid water dispersion for reduced risk of aquaplaning
  • Tapered edge surfaces reduces water pressure in the contact area providing greater traction and cornering stability
