Description:
The Altimax HP features a Twin Cushion Silica Tread Compound that places a high-density, all-season top compound for year-round traction and long wear above a low-density foundation compound that absorbs road vibrations to provide a comfortable ride. The tread compound is molded into a directional tread design featuring sweeping, high-angle tread grooves that are sized using sound wave suppression to reduce road noise for a quiet ride.

Review 5 of 10

Price Paid:  $0.00 from Tire Warehouse

Year / Model Reviewed:
2005 Pontiac Sunfire

Strengths:
Quieter than the Dunlop Sports I replaced. Good in/on snow; so-so on ice; good in rain. Reliable. Reasonably priced.

Weaknesses:
I haven't found any weaknesses. I've read about "pulling," but those people may have needed a front end alignment.

Summary:
These were suggested to me seven months ago, based on my driving style, to replace my discontinued Dunlops. At first I wasn't sure if I liked them, and the first few rainy days I drove with them I drifted on tight turns, but I chalked that up to their newness and my initial unfamiliarity with them. Now I don't drift in the rain and I have no trouble getting through several inches of snow on unplowed roads. I like them better than the Dunlops and would get them again. Not sure if my performance differs because they are nitrogen filled. I would not hesitate to buy them again.
