"Great dry traction and more than acceptable wet traction from these low profile tires. While not made for serious winter conditions, they did OK in light snow. Ride comfort is not the strength of short sidewall low profile tires and potholes can be teeth jarring." - Malvern, PA

so far so good...tire has been holding out with close to no problems...the smallest issue is the tire pressure. Sometimes deflated and needs more air

I did some reviewing before I bought these tires and by far a great choice. The stock tires let me down after about 30k on them. These Generals so far feel great...

I've driven over 1000 miles on these tires with a mix of highway and city and I'm 100% happy with my purchase. At $90 a tire these are middle of the road price wise but outperform at their price point. I tend to drive a little hard at times and these tires are up to the task. They are much quieter than the last two sets of tires I had on the car; Milestar and the OEM Yokohama. Nice and grippy in the corners with just a bit of flex and pretty smooth over road imperfections. I can't say much as far as the treadwear as I've only covered 1000 miles. Good in the snow because they are new and have a lot of tread on them. For all season tires that won't break the bank, I give them a thumbs up and if they are still available in the future, I would not think twice about buying them again. Basically a $110-120 tire for $90. Great deal.

Love these tires. They are new but have had good experience in all conditions. Snow is coming on and so far they are good to excellent. Smoother and quieter than the original tire brand for this car type.

An absolutely great tire. No idea about snow yet but rain and dry pavement excellent. So quiet I donít even know they are there as compared to the Mercedes OEM Continental ContacPro I saved a lot of money with the General tires and this will be my replacement tire for now on. Canít beat the price and quality The quietness is amazing.
