||Got 2 General Altimax Artic last year to replace Mastercraft Glacier, which, by the way, were good. The Altimax Artic are simply the best winter tires I have ever had, surpassing the Pirelli and even the Bridgestone Blizzak I had some bad winters ago. Wet traction is excellent; no slipping when accelerating from a stop and braking is smooth. Snow traction is also excellent, no matter its depth. Will definitely buy again!
