General G-MAX AS-05

Ultra High Performance All-Season
  • Designed with sporty handling in mind
  • Ideal for performance cars
  • OE fitment for margues like Porsche, BMW
  • The highest level of performance many street drivers will ever need for most weather conditions.

    These tires are much the same as UHP summer tires, but with siping or other technologies added to enhance wet grip and hydroplaning resistance. Despite the all-season label, with the notable exception of the Conti DWS, these are not usually tires to be trusted in any kind of snow or ice.

    Key Facts


    General G-MAX AS-05

    Description

    The General G-Max AS-05 is the new generation of the popular G-Max AS-03 tire. Described by General as “a smarter tire for a smarter driver,” this ultra high performance tire features Smart Grip technology, which allows it to react to weather conditions and offer the best traction possible on dry roads, wet roads, and light snow. Smart Monitors in the tire’s tread alert the driver to the need for new tires or a wheel alignment. And Stabilitread Technology optimizes rubber-to-road contact for long-lasting, even tire wear.

    • Stabilitread Technology optimizes the tire’s contact patch, for even wear and long life
    • Silica-enhanced tread compound provides strong grip in rain and light snow
    • Smart Grip Technology delivers spirited performance on dry roads and powerful traction in wet and snowy conditions
    • Smart Monitor indicators in the tire’s tread let you know when new tires are needed, or if the vehicle’s wheels are misaligned
    • Asymmetric tread pattern promotes reliable all-season traction
