General G-Max UHP Tire Line Targets Police Market
The General brand from Continental Tire the Americas LLC is adding to its G-Max lineup of ultra-high performance tires with a product designed for police and pursuit vehicles — the G-Max Justice.
“With the success of the G-Max series of ultra-high performance tires, it made perfect sense that the next iteration of it would be a pursuit-class tire,” says Travis Roffler, director of marketing for General. “It was a natural progression to provide our law enforcement agencies across the United States with a tire that we believe sets a new benchmark in the segment.” The G-Max Justice offers durability along with technoogies for precise handling, all-season traction and a longer tread life.
Manufactured in the United States, the G-Max Justice is designed from the G-Max AS-05 and G-Max RS, and includes the company's SmartGrip Technology, which offers a strong center rib for crisp steering and stable shoulder blocks for maximum grip. Continental's internal tests show the silica-rich all-season compound and siping provide wet and snow grip with up to 15% better wet braking performance compared to the Goodyear Eagle RS-A Pursuit in size P235/55R17 98W.
An internal tread wear test shows the StabiliTread Technology gives the G-Max Justice a wider footprint and provides longer tread life — up to 15% better — than the Goodyear tire.
G-Max Justice will be available in six sizes, fitting the Chevrolet Caprice PPV, Impala Police and Tahoe PPV, the Dodge Charger Pursuit, Ford’s Police Interceptor Sedan and Utility. The G-Max Justice is scheduled to be available beginning in October 2018.
