Product Tech 1

Visual Alignment Indicator (VAI)

Improved tyre life

Ensure wheel alignment within the first 1,000km, shown by even wear of the Visual Alignment Indicator.

Product Tech 2

Shark Skin Technology

High-Tech lessons from nature!

The surface of a shark’s skin is designed to improve the animals performance in water. Likewise the General Tire shark skin technology transfers the same philosophy into the tread pattern and longitudinal grooves allowing the tyre to evacuate water faster and more efficiently, thereby improving the grip levels and safety of the tyre.

Since 1915.
