The new T rated and H,V,Z rated tires from GENERAL with 2 MONITOR TECHNOLOGIES that are used for the first time in the tire industry
The VAI Technology is a unique and innovative system of small sipes of various depths equally positioned around the tyre on both shoulders, It allows the users to check wheels misalignment if any to avoid irregular wear of the tyres.
The VAI is represented three times on the circumference of the tyre by two additional sipes on the opposite shoulder blocks of the tyre. If the sipes of the VAIs wear off differently (one side more than the other for example), it means that there might be a misalignment of the wheels.
The VAI shows on all RT/HP and UHP sizes
The RTM Technology is an innovative and dynamic tread wear indicator system consisting of the words "Replacement Tire Monitor" molded into the central rib of the Altimax HP and UHP.
The RTM (Replacement Tire Monitor) gives the users the warning that the tyre is worn and has to be replaced
The inscription „Replacement Tire Monitor“ shows three times on the circumferential rib of the tyre. Just before the tread reaches the minimum tread depth indicated by the Tread Wear Indicator, the inscription will change to „Replace Tire“
The RTM shows on all HP and UHP sizes
