General Tires started in the United States in the early 20th century. At the time General Tire entered the tire business there were more than 300 companies making tires. Originally, General Tire decided to pass up the original equipment market and to produce only premium replacement tires. The first was called the oversized General Jumbo, and was considered an industry standard for many years. The manufacturer went on to build heavy duty truck tires and expanded their factories. During WWII, there was a shortage of tires to equip military vehicles, and General dedicated an entire plant in Waco, Texas to support the war effort. In the 50s, General started supplying original equipment tires to the likes of Ford, GM, and International Harvester. In 1987, General Tire was acquired by Continental AG of Hanover, Germany.
Over the years, the quality of General tires has benefited from the association with Continental, as well as from the German's global distribution network. Today, General Tires are exported around the world, for both replacement and OE passenger vehicle and heavy truck tire markets. They have expanded their tire lines to include the following types of tires:
● Sport performance tires - Great handling and responsive feedback in the G-MAX AS-03 and Grabber UHP
● Passenger car and minivan tires - Long wear and excellent mileage warranties in the AltiMAX RT tire, G-MAX AS-03, & Grabber HTS
● Light truck and SUV tires - The full spectrum of extreme off-road to smooth riding highway tires in the Grabber M/T tire, Grabber AT2, Grabber HTS, and Grabber UHP
