Genreal tire G-MAX AS-03
 
Are these any good for My camaro ss? Has anyone drove with this in the winter and rain? My camaro is a DD and i was thinking of getting these..Thanks all

although I have an RS, I love them, I have put about 10,000 on mine so far. Never been in the snow, but LOT of rain and they have good wet adhesion. They will last a lot longer than the stock tires as well, ass they have a bit harder compound.

Thanks for the reply

Ran them through the winter here in NC and was really impressed with the cold and wet traction. The were quieter on dry roads than the factory Pirelli's and didn't kick up gravel and debris the way the Pirelli did either. Great tire, especially for the price.

I am not satisfied with them, they were noisy from day one. Thought their quality was subpar as well. And good luck if you have issues with them and contact the company.

I have used these tires on my 2011 LT/RS and now on my 2013 SS/RS. They do quite well in my opinion. I don't feel they perform any less than the Pirelli's and they aren't any louder. They do weigh less than the Pirelli's though.

3.75" of snow....

I haven't had this car or my 2011 stuck ever.

I saw the G Max tires on a used SS at a dealership and I just didn't like the way they looked on the car. There's a Challenger SRT at work that has them and they look great on that car, though. I saw another SS with Cooper Zeon RS3-S tires and thought they looked much better.

I feel traction on the pavement is better with these...I will choose the gmax tires over the Pirelli's anyday!

I have had them for a few weeks now. No complaints. They have been great.

They are very solid rain tires. They will get you through a light snow (2-3 inches). More snow that and look at snow tires.

Better just say it like it is. Anymore snow than 3-3.5" you might as well stay home or drive the truck. Just for the simple fact of overall ground clearance.

More road noise than the factory Pirelli's? I find that hard to believe. Please describe what is sub-par about the quality.

I've had mine for over a year now and they're doing great! They do have a little less traction than the Pirelli's but not way less... Remember, they are an all-season tire so there is some give and take from the summer only. Wet traction is really good and will definitely last longer, as long as you keep the foot off the floor on the skinny pedal! Lol... Great price for a great tire. You definitely get your money's worth from them!

Aequitas & Veritas 09-02-2013 09:32 AM

I'd had mine for 18 months and they are fantastic. Good in the summer, great in the rain, and excellent in under 2" of snow. Like ^ said if it's over 3" of snow you shouldn't drive a Camaro you'd just be pushing the snow around.

But I love these tires, never had anything wrong with them, sound is the same, and from the pattern you wouldn't think they were all seasons. Good price for them too

currently running these with no complaints, best bang for your buck.

Glad Im not the only one that thought this... They just don't look like a performance tire from the side, despite the aggressive tread pattern. My little brother has them on his car. He likes them and says traction is good and they are a good tire for the price.
