was doing some research on tires and both evertrek and altimax are good tires. My uncle has evertreks on his corolla s, he likes them very much. I was going to put altimax on my preludes aftermarket wheels but the warehouse did not have my size in stock(anywhere in ontario) and i needed tires badly so went with falken 512'smorkys wrote: ↑Jun 6th, 2009 3:12 pmThese tires are quite similar looking. Does anybody have any experience with either one of these tires? The Evertrek is exclusive to Canadian Tire. I have General Altimax winter tires on my 01 Corolla CE's stock steel 14" x 5.5" wheels. I'm going to get a set of 14" x 6" alloy's to put some high performance/touring all season tires (195/60-14). Anybody familiar with these tires?

What size does your uncle have on his Corolla S? I would guess 185/65-14...correct? Does he have any feedback regarding fuel economy?mau108 wrote: ↑Jun 6th, 2009 6:42 pmwas doing some research on tires and both evertrek and altimax are good tires.

Is that 440 rating on an Altimax HP or on your Altimax Winters (RT?)?

Either way, not much to be concerned about.
High Performance tire treadwear rating is always going to be lower, on the assumption that you are going to be screaming round bends with them at the limit of their adhesion.

Though the treadwear rating portion of the UTQG is perhaps the most useless part of it, and though UTQG isn't a great measure of anything otherwise, UTQG is still what it is. What I mean by this is that even if these two have identical tread patterns, the treadwear difference has to mean something. More likely than not it's the compound that is different. Tread pattern is only one part of the equation; another part is compound.morkys wrote: ↑Jun 6th, 2009 8:21 pmMy only concern is that the Evertrek HP has a 400 treadwear rating vs the Altimax's 440. I don't imagine that would make all that much difference. I want to get the Evertrek because it can go on sale and I can use my CT MC for 6 months zero interest. That's how I bought my General Altimax snow tires.

The HP model is their "High Performance" one, with an H-speed rating (one up from T-speed rating).
