The G-MAX AS-05 is General’s Ultra High Performance All-Season tire designed for the drivers of performance sedans, sports cars and sporty coupes looking for a tire that effectively blends performance handling in the dry and wet with confident traction in all seasons, including light snow.
General G-MAX AS-05
Utilizing an all-season compound molded into an aggressive, asymmetric tread pattern, the G-MAX AS-05 features SmartGrip Technology to combine sporty handling with all-season traction. Large, stable tread blocks on the outboard and inboard shoulders deliver high levels of grip for confident high-speed handling, and the strong center rib provides solid on-center feel and responsive steering. Wet traction is addressed through the tread’s high silica content, with four wide, circumferential grooves for increased hydroplaning resistance. Specifically designed block edges and strategic placement of tread sipes complete the all-season equation by creating the biting edges necessary for grip in wintry weather.
The G-MAX AS-05 features two-ply sidewall construction for improved handling responsiveness along with added durability. The casing supports two wide, high-strength steel belts, and a one- or two-ply polyamide reinforcement provides added strength for high-speed capabilities.
