My truck at work has a set of Generals on it. I'd never put Generals on a personal vehicle. Wear is terrible and they're scary in the rain.

I decided to go with these tires for my Wife's 2007 XC90.. Reviews are good and the fact is that it's not a popular brand, nor are they widely distributed, so people don't know about them. I'll let everyone know how they turn out.

Good choice on the yokohamas. Should wear and perform well.

Installed at Discount Tire in NC and drove home to Charleston SC. 4 hour drive and it was nice and quite, very SMOOTH! Love these tires.

I fitted Vredstien Wintrac 4 Extreme's when I first got the XC90 because I wanted a more aggressive off road tread. I ebay'd the original tyres. They've been fantastic. The wear rate is 10,000 miles per milimeter. They start with 8 mm. They are very popular with Land Rover Discovery owners too.
