General G-Max AS-03

I recently got some General Tire G-Max AS-03's in the stock size 215/45/R17 installed on my car and are loving them so far. I mainly got new tires because I was going on a road trip just this past weekend to "Tail of The Dragon" at Deals Gap, NC for those that don't know what that is here is the site and all of the info about it http://www.tailofthedragon.com/ its a stretch of 11 miles with 318 curves! The main point of this post is that once we got on the Tail these tires performed great I may not have had a different set of tires to compare them to but just around Springfield I could get my old tires to squeal around turns and those were Kumho ASX's, all you head from these tires was them gripping the road surface and they stuck really well for being an all season tire. At one point it rained and since I just had these put on and haven't had any wet weather to test them in I did some abrupt swerves to see if I could purposely loose grip in the wet, other than a very little bit of slippage from the rear tires while swerving these tires gripped extremely well on wet pavement. I will have to wait till winter to see how they do in some snow but Overall I would definitely recommend these tires to anyone looking for a good performing all season tire.

I would have to agree with everything you said. And I think you'll be pretty happy with the snow performance as well. They do pretty well in our testings. Be sure to let me know what you think.
