I don't know about General's summer or all season tires, but I've put the Altimax Arctic on two of our cars. Like 'em and will buy them again--good value. Quiet for a winter tire, but are come up a bit short of highway trips in terms of ride an handling at 75 mph. But they get through snow really well. Good tire for the money.
However, they do no do well with potholes. We had two tires develop large bubbles in the sidewalls after hitting potholes. Hadn't bought the road hazard warranty so I had to eat the replacement cost. I don't know if General's other tires have the same issue, but if you get them a road hazard warranty might be a good idea.
