Notable Features

General Tire G-Max RS is a directional sports summer tire, designed for sub-compact, compact, and midsize cars. The proprietary technologies used in its production ensure smooth and noiseless ride, as well as excellent driving safety and maneuverability. A 2016 model. G-Max RS The components and technologies, used in the production process of the General Tire G-Max RS, made the tire extra durable, and gave it an ability to absorb all the tiny inequalities of the road surface (the Balance Comfort technology). In addition, its braking and acceleration performance does not raise any questions.

The last-generation tread compound with a high content of silica and special polymers ensures maximum grip in any weather conditions, at the same time reducing braking distance. Directional Tread Pattern The elastic blocks in the shoulder areas and the stiff center rib expand the contact patch, increasing road holding ability, and the transfer of lateral force for better maneuverability. StabiliTREAD Technology The tread design of the General Tire G Max RS model, where all of the elements are positioned asymmetrically, contributes to a significant reduction of the road noise, which will ensure a peaceful trip (AMST, Acoustic Modulation Sound Technology). Wet Traction Another interesting thing about this tire is the use of the Reactive Contour Technology (RCT), which allows the G-Max RS tire to instantaneously react to any changes in the road conditions and maintain steady grip and stable handling response. Replacement Tire Monitor The Visual Alignment Indicators (VAI) and the Replacement Tire Monitor Technology (RTM) indicate the evenness of tread wear, giving the motorist a timely warning about the necessity of tire replacement. This occurs when the remaining tread depth reaches 1.6mm.

General Tire G-Max RS is a tire that ensures the maximum performance of your car in any summer weather conditions.
