Notable Features

General Altimax One S (presented in 2019) is an asymmetric passenger tire, designed to be used in any weather conditions of the summer period. Its key features include stable handling response, short wet and dry braking distances, high resistance to wear, and long tread life. General Altimax One S Designing the General Tire Altimax One S model, the Continental engineers not just combined the pest qualities of the two existing tires – Altimax Comfort and Altimax Sport – but took them to a whole new level. Obviously, “ONE” in the name of the tire hints at the manufacturer’s following the latest trends of the tire industry, aimed at optimization and curtailing the overly extensive product ranges. And this essentially means that the Altimax Comfort and Altimax Sport will shortly fall out of production.

If we compare the Altimax One S with the Comfort and Sport models, we can safely say that the new model has been improved in every performance area. However, the biggest achievement was made in the field of fuel efficiency and expected mileage. Performance Comparison The completely new tread pattern of the General Altimax One S with stiff dual blocks in the shoulder area ensures crisp steering response, reliable grip, and a short braking distance.

The unique shape of the slit-like sipes contributes to increasing the “edge effect”, efficiently dispelling water from the contact patch, which improves the feedback through the wheel and the handling response on wet and slippery surfaces. Features & Benefits The General Tire Altimax One S tread compound enriched with next-generation silica, and computer-optimized tread design extend tire life by minimizing deformation causing wear.

The Visual Alignment Indicators, located in the shoulder areas, warn the driver after the first 1,000 km about possible misalignment of the wheels. This is another factor that extends the tire’s service life. General Tire's Monitor Technologies The Replacement Tire Monitors, located on one of the central ribs of the General Altimax One S, warn the motorist about the necessity of tire replacement, clearly indicating the fact that the tread has been worn down to the minimum legal tread depth.

In addition to the four-groove design, a version with three circumferential grooves was also developed, designed for less powerful passenger cars. The three-groove version is called General Altimax One.
