I am VERY picky when it comes to tires. I put a set of General Altimax RT43 on my mom's car because they were recommended for driving in snow. I liked them so much, I put a set on my own car, too. For a moderately powerful front wheel drive midsize sedan it was a very good match.
They are European-firm and offer great handling and excellent traction. They are also very good in snow. They are slightly rough, feeling a little bit off-balance at high speed. I even had them re-balanced after a few thousand miles. But I prefer "sporty" to "soft", so they are perfect for me.
They are definitely a big step forward for General, which is usually second-tier to its Continental mother ship. These tires are clearly first-tier. Highly recommended.
