An American based company, The General Tire Rubber Company was founded in Akron, Ohio in 1915. Their factory in Mt Vernon, Illinois is one of the largest in North America producing over 10 million tires annually. They are the largest employer in Illinois south of Peoria. In 1987 the General brand was acquired by Continental A/G, a tire and auto parts manufacturer based in Germany. Continental is renowned for its manufacturing prowess and has modernized the Mount Vernon Factory and built a second factory in Sumter, South Carolina.
General Altimax RT43
For the last several years, the General Altimax RT43 has been our #1 selling passenger car tire, due to its long 80,000-mile tread life warranty, great all-season traction, and durability. It has a wide range of sizes to fit many cars and SUVs and last year was ranked as the #1 all-season tire on the market by a famous consumer reporting magazine. Here’s a short video the Nathan did about it:
General Grabber A/TX
For light trucks we carry the General Grabber A/TX which has proven to be just as good for on and off road driving as several more popular all-terrain tires that are much higher priced. These high-quality, budget-friendly tires are perfect for customers who want an off-road look, comfortable on-road driving, and great traction in mud, snow, or rain.
Suburban Tire Auto Repair Centers is proud to include General tires in our hand-picked tire collection.
