Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

OK, so I haven't put enough miles on these yet to determine treadwear and snow performance. All I can say is that, so far, these tires have been a major improvement over the OEM tires. Perfect for a Tundra 4 door with my type of usage. More importantly, I wanted to weigh in on the excelling value of user reviews in making a good decision on new tires. My...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (V-Speed Rated)

These tires offer a good balance between performance & economy. I use snow tires for winter driving, so these will be used for summer driving. I drive nearly 20k miles/year, 8-9k miles/summer. I need tires that will last at least 4 summers, but I like to drive and want good performance too. These Goodyears fit the bill. Dry handling is very good, though not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle GT (V-Speed Rated)

An excellent tire. great cornering ability and a surprising wet weather tire. Goodyear definitely has changed there tire compound over the years as these look like they will be here for the long haul. Tread life is excellent so far.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A

These tires came stock on my 07 Impala SS and I love them! I have put almost 69,000 mile on these tires and I could probably go a few more.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I replaced my OE Potenzas with these F1 all seasons. I got tired of having to swap wheels every winter and put on the Dunlop Winter Sports, so I'm trying all season tires. I put them on in April, so I haven't driven in snow yet, but on dry pavement and rain, the Eagle F1s perform as well as the stock Bridgestones. Cornering is awesome. The F1s handle the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

Shocked with how good these have been in snow and ice. Great in dry too.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I just got this car 6 months ago and it had Goodyear Eagles on it. The ride was O.K. as was the handling. After reading a lot of reviews I decided on the P7 and what a GREAT choice. The ride has improved and also the handling but there is a HUGE difference in the noise! I don't hear well and now my wife does not have to even speak loudly for me to hear her....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

These tires have been on the MDX for about 1 year and I would definitely buy these again. Dry, wet & snow traction has been good in Cleveland, Ohio. The tire noise on my MDX is significantly less than the tire noise on my wife's TSX with Goodyear Eagle GT's [so much so that the GT's need to be replaced]. I rotate them every 3-4 months at every oil change. My...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I had Continentals on the car recently and loved everything but the handling. I have to admit I like to push roundabouts & off ramps faster than the recommended speeds, but there again, that is my preference. The tires were quiet, comfortable & great in poor weather, but under heavy steering, I lost confidence in the car's feeling of stability. These Good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I really like these tires. The tread on them will never allow them to be considered with the best handling tires in the max performance category, but for an all-season tire they are very impressive. I bought them because tread wear was more important to me than handling, but I was pleasantly surprised at how well they hold the road, and how comfortable and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A2

Slightly over 10K miles on my 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack and I driver it hard most of the time. She gets 25MPG on the highway at 80MPH, so I can't complain. Ride comfort is great on these tires and road noise is not a problem. Traction seems to be very good. I only wish they would make them in a little wider size so I could stagger the tire sizes on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I've only had these tires for about 100 miles but they are vast improvement over the goodyear eagles that came with the vehicle. The Michelins are much quieter, I would estimate a 10th of the noise that the goodyear's produced.Lousy experience with installer in my area, actually refused to install tires. I had to have them picked up and brought to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I replaced the original Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric tires after about 30,000 miles. They were noisy and very easy to turn over off the line. Never had any issues with dry traction or grip in the corners but wet driving FORCED me to slow down. As they accumulated miles they remained predictable and consistent but did get much louder as they got closer to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS EMT

These tires have held up over 12 years with 42,000 miles. Have P245/45ZR17 on front and P275/40ZR18 on rear. Mostly highway driving over the 12 years. The tires have two trips to Bowling Green KY , one spirited 2 day session at VIR in Aton Virginia. Tires just passed PA inspection for depth thickness. I keep tire pressure at 29 psi all year round.These are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

Bought set of 4 of these tires when we got a nail through the sidewall of the stock bridgestones at 40k miles.First impression was wow the bridgestones were loud and the good years were near silent. They did not get much louder through the 55k life of usage. They also smoothed out what was a rough OEM ride. Tires were rotated regularly and wore great. They...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

These tires get great traction in all conditions - dry, wet, and snow. Much more grip than the Goodyear Eagle LS-2s that come with the car. I've read reviews reporting disappointing treadwear. I'm not sure if all-wheel drive wears them out faster, but I still have plenty of tread after 37,000 miles, and I have not been feather-footing behind the wheel. These...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

The original Hankooks on my Chevy Sonic were absolutely the worst tires I have ever owned. In the snow, you are better off leaving the car in the driveway. I recently put a set of Goodyear Eagle Sport All Seasons on my Chevrolet Sonic LTZ sedan. Huge improvement over the Hankooks. Ride, handling and noise have improved considerably. The car feels more glued...  Read More
