General: Anywhere is Possible

The General Tire and Rubber Company was founded in 1915 by William O’Neil and Winfred E. Fouse in Akron, Ohio, the rubber capital of the world. General Tire entered a booming market with over 300 competitors, so O’Neil and Fouse bypassed the original equipment (OE) market and moved straight on to focus on producing a quality replacement tire.

An early tire that General Tire released was the General Balloon Jumbo, a pneumatic truck tire that required only 12 pounds of air pressure. In 1955, General Tire entered the passenger car OE tire market as the tire supplier for General Motors.

Types of General Tires:

  • Passenger Car Tires
  • Performance Tires
  • SUV/Crossover Tires
  • Minivan Tires
  • Light Truck Tires
  • Summer Tires
  • Winter Tires
  • Commercial Tires

General Tire is Synonymous with Durability and Performance

The General Tire and Rubber Company underwent a name change to GenCorp, Inc. in 1984, then soon sold to Continental AG of Hanover, Germany in 1987. General Tire is currently a branch of Continental Tire North America, Inc. They still are one of the leaders in the pack for marketing, production, and development of superior tires.

General Tire still continues its tradition of manufacturing a comprehensive line of quality, ultra-high performing tires.

Car Care Tips

Car Care Tips

Take a penny and put Abraham Lincoln's head into one of the grooves of the tread. If part of his head is covered by the tread, you're ok. If you can see all of his head, it's time to replace the tire. When the tread is worn down to 1/16 of an inch, tires must be replaced. Also remember to check your tire pressures approximately once a week. Low tire pressures can affect fuel economy, handling and comfort. To accurately measure your tire pressure, check tires when they are cold. Wait at least three hours after driving."
