These tires have exceeded my expectations, for the price, you can't go wrong. The General Altimax Artics are very quiet, you don't really notice any sounds while driving, especially on the highway. They were easy to get on the rims I bought and they provide amazing traction, even during snowstorms. We had a snowstorm with over 20 cm of snow and these tires handled the road like a beast. Definitely buying these or another set of General Tires again.
