Top General AltiMAX HP Review

Given 42% while driving a Volkswagen Passat (225/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
These tyres offer good grip in the dry and average in the wet. They have very weak walls and I have had 4 damaged tyres due to small pot holes. Very poor strength.

At the moment - good tyres.
Silent, good grip in dry, on some dust, in the wet and puddle of water on the road. And even in the pouring rain.
Very good in gravel road. But not good on garden grass (a lot of wheelspin). Comfortable and easy to drive. Feedback is good, but it could be better (like Michelin, Pirelli etc.)
But the main plus is that the the full set of NEW tyres (4 TYRES) costs 200 EUROS, so they are very CHEAP. For this reason, and for good grip and silent drive, I would buy them again, BUT,
I have only driven 20 000 km which is 12500 miles little over a year and tyres are worn little bit too quickly. When I bought, there was 8 mm of pattern. Now there is little below 5 mm pattern. For safe use, under 3 mm I wouldn't go. So I can drive about 10 000 km (6250miles) more. So these tyres last only 30 000 km/18750 miles and they are on 3 mm wear. Yes, you can drive them to 1,6mm, but this is too dangerous with rainy conditions.
They have m+s label on them, so you can use them in snowy condition too?

These are the best tyres in the world. Watch now!
Given 81% while driving a Opel Corsa (185/60 R14 H) on mostly motorways for 37,500 easy going miles
Good tires for those not interested in high performance tires and that has a easy going drive style.
If you are looking for a good tire that lasts very well, I think its a good choice. I used mine for 62.000km and still have rubber to do more 10.000km at least.
It has good grip on dry and curves and it could be a little bit better on wet, but nothing that bad.

Given 23% while driving a Ford S Max (225/50 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
Fitted by local Ford dealer as new replacements - done just under 8000 miles and they need replacing already - budget tyres that really aren't worth the money.
Definitely not buying these again and not going to trust the dealership that sold them on!

Given 86% while driving a Volkswagen Passat (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 26,875 spirited miles
Bought my tyres (UHP version) and have religiously rotated at every 10000km. Currently doing 43000km. Not bad considering the treadwear indicator is only 280.
They replaced a full set of Bridgestone Turanzas that had 3mm-4mm on them. The reason being the car was very twitchy on wet roads and I definitely had no confidence on icy roads with them. That changed completely on these tyres. Now before anyone says that this is an unfair comparison the tyres now have 3mm in front and 2mm in the rear. They too became nervous (only in the wet with standing water) at 3mm. Otherwise I am very happy with them.

I use the car equipped with them in all conditions and now that I am getting ready to replace them will definitely consider getting another set. After all this is really a Continental subbrand that I have done over 40000km with.
