Does anyone have real world experience with General Exclaim. They are well priced at Wal Mart but I get conflicting reports?? 2012 Fusion SEL 225/50 17.

Pretty good tire for a high performance all season. W rated and have a stiff enough sidewall to not roll over and feel mushy. They will wear super fast with only a 380 treadwear rating.

I had them installed 12,000 miles ago on my Subaru June 29. 205/50R17 no complaints.
Twin to the General AltiMAX RT43 with a 700 UTQG for $85 is a great price IMO. Your size is also 700 UTQG.

I think that Exclaim is just a Walmart exclusive private version of General's G-Max AS-05 and is probably OK.

But in Florida, you don't need all-season tires. You may be better served by grand touring summer tires such as these:
Michelin Primacy 3
Goodyear EfficientGrip
Pirelli Cinturato P1 Plus

Walmart has the Falken Azenis FK453 for just a little more than the Exclaim, but the Falken is a high performance summer tire

People seem to like them at Walmart. Although I would get some Viva 3s. They seem to be a ok tire for the money.
