LinkedIn +

General Tire has launched two new summer tires – the Altimax One and the Altimax One S.

Both tires are said to feature a robust design and high grip. Rigid shoulder blocks and a continuous rib structure in the center ensure precise handling and outstanding braking on dry roads, thanks to the connected shoulder blocks and reinforced stiffness.

The Altimax One and Altimax One S are also said to provide reliable dry performance, increased wet grip and mileage.

The Altimax One features a three-groove tread pattern, designed to deliver precise handling and safe braking in dry conditions. In wet conditions the large number of gripping edges provide increased traction for when conditions get tough.

During the launch phase, the Altimax One will be available in 12 sizes for rims from 15in, including fitments for popular compact models such as the VW Polo and Ford Fiesta.

The Altimax One S, meanwhile, features a four-groove tread pattern, designed for higher performance sizes to ensure improved water dispersal at greater speeds.

The Altimax One S will initially be available in 37 sizes for rims from 15-20in and covers a broad selection of vehicles from compact to mid-size high performance models, from the VW Golf to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
