Continental expands General Altimax line

Posted on July 3, 2014

Continental Tire the Americas LLC has added 37 sizes to the Altimax RT43, the General tire brand’s newest all-season touring tire.

The Altimax RT43 is available in sizes ranging from 13- inch to  18-inch wheels with a UTQG wear rating of 600 for 13-inch to 15-inch wheels and 700 for 16-inch to 18-inch wheels.

The company says the tire’s technologies include the Peak Anti-Slip Sipe Design Technology (PASD) that increases the number of biting edges for traction on slippery roads.

The tire also contains Low Surface Abrasion Technology (LSA), providing construction elements that reduce tread distortion as the tire rolls, resulting in less surface abrasion to promote even tread wear and extended tread life.

Other technologies include the Monitor Technology including Replacement Tire Monitor (RTM) and Visual Alignment Indicators (VAI).  

The all-season touring tire has a 45-day customer satisfaction trial and a 75,000 mile limited tread life warranty.

The Sales Counter Moved Again: And the Sales Floor is Now on the Smartphone

The sales counter just moved. Well, it didn’t “just-move,” it’s been moving. In my early days of selling tires at retail, it all happened in a small area at the store known as the sales floor. Consumers called or visited the store where the initial details of a potential sale were discussed. Today, the initial discussion is digital. The salesperson at the store had a great deal of control because the product and pricing information resided with the salesperson at the store. Today, there’s plenty of product and pricing information available to the consumer before they call or visit.
