The products of this brand are welcomed by many leading automakers, for example, General Motors, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen.In 2012, General Tire gained leadership in the development, manufacture, and selling of high-class tyres for off-road vehicles. The brand is famous for its strong and long-lasting 4x4 tyres.
