General G-Max AS-03 availability?

245/40/19

Are these on backorder? Just tried to order some from a local discount tire...and they informed me they were on a backorder? Like only 5 available nationally?

DTD says "on order 3-5 days"

Any info?

I just returned mine last week same size.
I bought the gmax on March 1 and the rear end kept swinging out from me around the neighborhood corners at 20 mph. No traction. Don't waste your money unless you live in the snow area and really really need snow tires other than that they suck for dry traction.

I dropped another 3 hundred to get the Nitto Invo's couldn't be happier way way more grippier than the RE11's I had before and I thought RE11's were king.

I ordered some VB3's from VMR on the 7th and they were going to mount & balance some G-Max's on them before shipping. They called yesterday and said the tires were backordered until April 13.

Thank you for the post Xx srs bsns xX.

The 245/40-19 94W G-Max is going through a mold change right now meaning the internal construction for this size is being changed slightly. The new production run of this model (245/40-19 98W) will not be available until mid May and General no longer has the original model available.

We don't stock them in this size but, if they are available from General, we can order them in for you.
