General Altimax tires feature a replacement tire monitor – TireBuyer.com


Replacement tire monitor, or RTM
technology is exclusive to General Tire’s Altimax HP. This technology is the second part of
the monitor technology system. It consists of the phrase “replacement
tire monitor” on the center rib of the tread, and appears at three equally spaced
locations around the tire. This allows the vehicle
owner to see this monitor system, regardless of the position of the tire
on the parked vehicle. As the Altimax HP runs through
its treadlife, the replacement tire monitor letters
wear away. When the Altimax HP tread depth reaches
the treadwear indicator, or TWI, also referred to as the “treadwear bar”, the phrase “replacement tire monitor” changes to
“replace tire”, giving the vehicle owner an added
measure of security by alerting him or her to the need for
tire replacement.
