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
