About General Tires ...
Building on an 85-year American tradition, General Tire, a brand of Continental General Tire Inc. (CGT), offers affordability, dependability and availability to consumers who search for a sound, confident choice when purchasing tires.
General tires fit every budget without sacrificing safety or dependability. An 80,000-mile treadwear warranty on some product lines exemplifies the company's trust in its tires. In addition, a one-year road hazard coverage plan ensure General tires will deliver America's drivers safely to all destinations from hauling equipment up a steep mountain to shuffling the kids to the city soccer field.
Recognized as part of the fourth largest global tire manufacturer, General Tire is original equipment on many trusted domestic and foreign automobiles from the Ford Windstar and the Chevrolet Suburban to the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, and the new Mercedes Benz M Class SUVs. To maintain this position, General Tire will continue to be at the forefront of standards for design, performance, safety and reliability.
General incorporates consumer input not only into product design, but also environmental responsibility. As an accountable member of its community, General Tire has kept over one million used tires out of landfills in the last year and a half through its recycling program. The State of North Carolina rewarded the company with a $1.2 million state grant to aid General's effort to clean out landfills and better the environment.
Known by tire dealers for dependability in both sales and quality, General brand tires have been an industry standard since 1915. They are available in the replacement market in family, sport utility, light truck, commercial and high-performance models, and are original equipment on a wide range of passenger vehicles including those from Ford, General Motors, Nissan and Mercedes Benz.
In cooperation with 21st Century Tires, General Tire continues to maintain its position as a leading supplier to the automotive industry.
