Initial Review, 300 Miles on Tires
June 10, 2014

I looked for a few weeks for a good tire that will be able to put up with my aggresive driving and be smooth and quite. I FOUND IT... The Pirelli Centruno P7 All Season Plus is the perfect match for me. I drove it through pouring rain and hot dry days and both the time the tire out perfomed by old noisy GoodYear Eagle GT tires. The nose level is amazing.. it feels like my car is not even making contact with road. And the best part.. with my old tires I was getting 22 mpg on my current commute of 22 miles highway 8 miles city driving; however, now I get over 28 mpg... a 6+ miles improvement. I strongly recommend this tire to anyone looking for a quite touring tire. I have not tried his in snow, but can't wait until winter time.. I'll update the review at that time.

I replaced a set of Riken Raptors with the Goodyears. Much less noise, much better ride, better MPG and improved handling. I drive both mountain twisties and long freeway runs, and in both situations these are superior tires. Good grip under hard corniering and braking. I haven't had them long enough to report on tire wear, as the Z3 is a "third car" even thoug it gets almost 10,000 miles a year. Over all, I will proably get another set for this car, but that's a few years away at the pace we use the car. I also have a 2007 Corvette so the Z3 is a backup, rather than a daily driver. But I do like the Goodyear tire on the Z3. It seems like a good match-up.

I have 18,000 miles on my Sonic LT with the 1.4 turbo and a six speed manual. Fun little car that gets well over 30 mpg around town. The car came with Hankook Optimo tires. The Hankooks were the worst tire I have ever had on any car. It was down right scary to drive in the snow. I put these Eagle Sports on the car on Saturday, and its is like a completely different car in the snow. It's no longer scary to drive. These tires may even be better in the snow than the F1 all season I have on my G8 GT. Very happy with these tires. I see the traction control light come on a fraction of what I had been seeing, even on the wet roads. I will give an update once I drive in other conditions...but since I bought these tires because of issues with the snow, and they fixed that issue, I'm ecstatic!

Bought a whole new set of these tires for my 02 maxima. I also bought a new set of stock wheels. this way everything would be new and i would have no issues. these tires are great and i have no complaints. they look great and do exactly whats needed. im not a speed demon. although i will get on the car sometimes, these tires give me no issues. great in water and snow (only light snow so far). ive read some reviews that say these tires are loud. but in my opinion they are not louder than any other tire ive ever had. the stock tire that comes with my car is around 285 bucks. thats insane. i used to have a set of goodyear eagle gt's. good tire as well but they cost almost 50 bucks more a piece. this tire is around 100 bucks and i think for that price you get a great deal. no slipping. good grip wet or dry. braking feels fine. if i have anything negative to report about in the future i will update.

NOISY.

I expected that, though, and I've driven on worse. These things STICK. I don't advocate law-breaking and I don't want to incriminate myself... that being said, These tires combined with AWD, turbo, and low center of gravity inherent in the Legacy GT, I feel as if the tires allow the car to bend space/time. I seem able to arrive at work before I've left. I'll be trying the Goodyear Eagle F1's next time because somebody said they're quieter... I sure hope they stick like these Conti's. Even if you ultimately decide on something else in the long run, you've got to at least give these a shot.

Excellent tires! I've been driving and buying tires for over 30 years and these are the best tires I've ever had. We just had about a foot of snow in Chicago where I live and I had to go to work and back in this blizzard and I've never had tires that made me feel so secure in snow before. I am very impressed with these tires and would recommend them for anyone, especially people who drive sports cars, of course. My car is front wheel drive and I just wonder what kind of improvement people with rear wheel drive would get with these tires, since I know from experience that rear wheel drive is much harder to handle in the snow.

Initial Review, 16,000 Miles on Tires
April 19, 2011

I purchased these tires looking for a performance all-season upgrade tires that I've had in the past.----The tires I had were (for all-season tires) great in the wet and dry, and acceptable in the snow.----For the Goodyears, in the dry, straight-line grip is as good as I'd need from an all-season tire, and overall cornering GRIP is pretty impressive as well.----In the wet, straight-line grip is good, but cornering grip is seriously lacking.----My older and MUCH cheaper tires cornered harder in the rain than these Eagle GTs do.----Break-away is relatively progressive, with the steering wheel getting lighter as the tires give way, but it just happens too soon.----Snow performance is about what you'd expect from a performance-oriented all-season tire.----It works well if you're careful and gradual with your inputs.----My biggest gripe with these tires, by far, is how they do not feel solid at all.----I don't know if it's soft sidewalls, squirmy tread blocks, or a combination of both, but the car just does not feel right going into corners.----I make the initial turn-in at a corner, then about a second later I feel the whole car roll and settle as I continue through.----This did not happen at all with any of the four other sets of tires I have driven on with this car, and I keep the tires at 40psi, so it's not an issue with the car itself or tire pressure.----In conclusion, they're okay...they work well for commuting and slower-paced, every-day driving, however I would NOT recommend them for anyone wanting a tire that corners nicely.----Tire wear is okay, I like to take corners pretty fast, so at 16,000 miles when these tires are at around 6/32" depth, I don't have much to complain about at all.

Dunlop SP Sport Signature Still a Top Choice in the High Performance All-Season Category

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 by Gary Stanley

With tire technology advancing quickly these days, it's rare to find a model of tire that stands the test of time and remains competitive in its category year after year. First introduced over six years ago, the Dunlop SP Sport Signature is one of those tires. Even after this many years, it continues to hold its own against newer tires in the High Performance All-Season category. If you're looking for a great all-season performance tire at a good price, the Dunlop SP Sport Signature is for you!

With over 2.6 million miles reported, the tire is currently ranked third in our survey results. This is a higher ranking than other popular tires including the Yokohama AVID ENVigor, Goodyear Eagle GT and BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S. The SP Sport Signature is often praised for its good road feel, quick steering response and great combination of wet and dry traction. 

Take a look at what some of our customers are saying about their experience with the Dunlop SP Sport Signature:

"These have been such fantastic tires that I am now on my third set. Great dry weather traction and awesome treadwear. I have been very pleased with these tires." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2003 Infiniti G35 Sedan

"These tires handle great. I have almost no road noise and they handle great on wet pavement. Even with my aggressive driving habits they wore perfectly. They were a great buy for the money." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2001 Lexus ES300

"The Dunlops have transformed my car. I've gone from such noise to such quiet and smooth riding and handling. For a car with 280,000 miles on it, the difference is astounding. I'm very happy with the purchase of these tires." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 1998 Honda Accord Coupe EX V6

Goodyear vs. Michelin Brand Showdown

Thursday, April 18, 2013 by Ben Rooney

Two of the most recognizable and respected brands in the industry are Michelin and Goodyear. Both brands have their fans, both brands have their detractors, but ask any sampling of people in the United States to name a couple of tire brands and Goodyear and Michelin will probably dominate the responses. A common question that we receive is: "Which brand is better?" The answer depends on the tire category and the specific needs of the driver, but I'll try to give an overview by comparing the top tires from each brand by category. This comparison focuses on categories for cars.

Category: Passenger All-Season

Contenders: Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season vs. Michelin Energy Saver A/S

Verdict: The Goodyear has the advantage in bad weather traction. Michelin's Energy Saver A/S optimizes rolling resistance to slightly enhance fuel economy. Both have very good treadwear and rate well in our customer surveys, but the Goodyear is currently higher. Two strong contenders, however the Goodyear wins with superior traction in bad weather.

Category: Standard Touring All-Season

Contenders: Goodyear (none) vs. Michelin Defender

Verdict: No contest here as Michelin has the number one tire in the class and Goodyear has no entry. Michelin wins by default. Goodyear would need a heroic new entry to unseat the current king of this class.

Category: Grand Touring All-Season

Contenders: Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring vs. Michelin Primacy MXV4

Verdict: These two tires are both excellent entries into the category. I've driven both of these and prefer the Michelin, which also has slightly higher survey results over a larger number of miles. This round goes to Michelin.

Category: High Performance All-Season

Contenders: Goodyear Eagle GT vs. Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S

Verdict: The Eagle GT is solid but the Pilot Exalto A/S remains one of the best all-around tires in the category. It blends ride, handling and traction in a wide variety of conditions. The Pilot Exalto A/S takes this round for Michelin as well.

Category: Ultra High Performance All-Season

Contenders: Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season vs. Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus

Verdict: These tires are both right in the top tier of the category. We have not tested them directly against one another, and the Goodyear is relatively new. Both earned similar results against other tires in the category in tests one year apart. This one is too close to call.

Category: Max Performance Summer

Contenders: Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 vs. Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Verdict: This is an excellent match-up of two of the newest and stickiest tires in the Max Performance Summer category. The Michelin won their head-to-head test, and having done some of the driving for the test, I agree with the results. Honorable mention to the Goodyear, which is an excellent tire in its own right, but the Pilot Super Sport is the class of the field right now.

Category: Extreme Performance Summer

Contenders: Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G: 2 vs. Michelin (none)

Verdict: Goodyear makes the Supercar G: 2 in very few sizes, but does enough to take the category unopposed. Any tire that looks this cool merits some points in a brand shoot by virtue of the halo effect it brings to the brand:

 

 

 

 

 


Roundup:

  • Goodyear wins two categories: Passenger All-Season and Extreme Performance Summer.
  • Michelin wins four categories: Standard Touring All-Season, Grand Touring All-Season, High Performance All Season and Max Performance Summer.

Whether you're a Goodyear or Michelin fan, both brands provide great options. Choose the tire from the brand you like that best suits how and where you drive.

This is another follow up from previous reviews. Since I submitted my last review, these tires have been exposed to the icy roasd os Interstate 70 in eastern Colorado and the snow packed roads of Interstate 70 from Denver west. The Eagle GT A/S has exceeded my expectations so far. It probably doesn't hurt that my vehicle is AWD. The only area that I can't comment on yet is treadwear and mileage. I will be satisfied if I get 40,000 miles out of these tires and all indications, so far, are that I will get a few thousand more than that. For my driving style and my vehicle, this is a great tire and I would not hesitate to buy the Eagle GT A/S again.

I've been driving for over 50 years, my wife over 40 years and neither of us have ever hade a tire bulge. Now, with these Goodyears, bulges on two tires purchased less than 2 months ago. I say crap construction - dealer says "potholes" and it's not even pothole season! Will never purchase Goodyear tires again.

Bought the BF Goodrich Radial T/A tire for my GMC Sierra 1500 2WD standard cab stepside pickup as a replacement for Goodyear Eagle GT tires that I religiously ran on for many years (only to learn that Goodyear stopped making that tire in a 15" when it came time to replace them.) I wanted the White Letter tire and as many of you are finding out, 15" RWL this is becoming a dying breed.

This was the first set of BF Goodrich's I have ever owned and I was pleasantly surprised how much better and smoother they ride vs the Goodyears. Dry pavement driving is great, and wet pavement is good and acceptable. I typically tone it down in wet weather just because you can't expect a light truck to handle like a car due to the light rear end.

The raised white lettering is not quite as big as what Goodyear does and the BF Goodrich positioning of the letters are closer to the rim, vs Goodyear, which positions the lettering closer towards the treads. Not really a big deal to some, but if you have attention to detail like I do, its worth noting the appearance difference. Also as a notation, the tire shop filled my BF Goodrich tires with Nitrogen instead of air.

After having owned these tires for over 6 months, I wished I had switched to them earlier based on their ride and appearance. Unless something unforeseen happens, I would be likely to repurchase and recommend to a friend

These were the OEM tires when i got the car new and I hated them. Severe tire hop. Cured tire hop with lowering the car and upgraded trailing arms and upper control arm. I had read that Goodyear had improved the compound of the rubber and at the price i decided the significant savings was worth the try. So far i am very pleased. Will give another update after a few thousand miles. That might be a while as this is just a fun car for weekends.
