General or Nexen Tires

Hi -

My 13 LTZ will need new tires soon. I've been looking at a couple of mid-grades - the Nexen N5000 (which is currently on my car), and the General Altimax RT43. Nexen is about 100 cheaper but the General got an excellent rating from CR a couple of years back. Anyone have the General's on their car? I'm looking for a really quiet tire for next 50k or so. The Nexen is pretty quiet. Any other mid-grades i should consider?

thanks in advance.

Still have OEM's on our 2016 Malibu Hybrid, but we do have those tires on our Mazda CX-5. They are quiet, have good grip, and I will put them on the MB-Hy when it is time.

Re: General or Nexen Tires

The General Altimax RT43 will last you a long time. My mom had a set on her 2013 and they lasted about 60-70K

I currently have Kuhmo's but my next tire I ever buy for a car with be the General Altimax RT43.

I think they have 700 ratings which is very high.

Re: General or Nexen Tires

just remember that generally the higher the number the longer the tread wear rating the harder the tire is...harder tires grip less than softer tires...

make an informed choice... https://www.chevymalibuforum.com/for...s-welcome.html
