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.

Square setup on GT500 rims was a good compromise between cornering/handling and fuel economy; a square set of 285s (of the same tire) were greater traction-wise, but dragged down the MPG. I liked the 255s as a good all-around tire. Sold the car with tires a few months ago, regretfully.

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.

On the dry and when they are warmed well they are excellent. NOTE: tire pressure is very important with these - don't rely on a cheap tire gauge. When the correct tire pressure was used the handling improved measurably (3 lbs to hard not good).
Steering response is the best I have ever experienced and would imagine these tires shine on the track as I have not been able to find my personal limits which on my favorite twisties - I have many times with previous tires on different cars.
In the wet I have not found a comfort level yet and will do a follow up after I do ..

Replaced Goodyear triple-tred with Eagle GT and find that this tire exceeds my expectations in all weather. Not a true snow tire so the one time we had heavy snow it was just fair - but got us through w/o trouble. Great tire at very reasonable price..

Goodyear Eagle GT (V-Speed Rated) Review

Wednesday, February 6, 2013 by Gary Stanley

If you ask a random person to name a few tire brands off the top of their head, odds are one of the first to come to their mind is Goodyear. Goodyear tires come as Original Equipment on many makes and models of cars, trucks, SUVs and crossover vehicles. In addition to being one of most well-known brands worldwide, Goodyear makes some of the top tires on the market in various categories.

An oldie but goodie, the Goodyear Eagle GT (V-Speed Rated) is still holding its own against the competition in the High Performance All-Season category. It's currently ranked fourth out of seventeen tires in our Tire Survey Results. During our in-house testing, we liked the tire's reasonable ride quality and good winter weather traction.

The Goodyear Eagle GT has an asymmetric tread pattern so you can rotate them for longer treadlife and help maintain an even treadwear for a quieter ride. To learn more about tire rotation, see my blog post titled "Should I Rotate My Tires?"

Take a look at what some of our customers are saying about the Goodyear Eagle GT (V-Speed Rated):

"These babies are sweet. I've got 20,000 on a set of four and it's like I'm riding on rails still. Treadwear looks normal for my "spirited" driving, probably 50-60% left and looks totally even. For my mom's Hyundai we ordered the Kumhos... On my Mustang I just couldn't do it. Goodyear Eagle GT's go a lot better on Sally."  -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2000 Ford Mustang Convertible.

"Good price, a great tire and good wet road and dry road ride." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2004 Honda Accord Sedan EX V6.

"These are my second set of Goodyears. Old set went over 40,000 miles, much better than the Original Equipment which I only got about 12,000 miles out of. I also tried Yokohamas, which were good but extremely noisy and went about 30,000-35,000 miles; so the Goodyears are great and superior to the other two and I recommend them on your small car." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2005 Suzuki Reno LX.

Excellent tire! Living in Michigan, I wanted a sport orientated tire that would still get me to work during the two or three snowstorms we have a year in Michigan. These fit the bill. They handle great for an all season, good wet and dry performance and really compliment the excellent handling characteristics of a 5-series BMW. With a semi-powerful RWD car that has the sport package (Lowered by an 1" and low profile tires) I was pretty concerned about winter performance and debated getting dedicated snow tires, but I'm glad I didn't. These are VERY adequate in snow. We just had a 6" dumping here and the car was fine. Don't get me wrong, I had to take it slow, drive carefully, and be gentle on the throttle and brakes, but for ultra high performance all seasons + RWD, these are a great tires. I even made it though some major drifts without an issue. If you do your part driving, these tires will do theirs. At the end of the day yes, all season tires are a compromise, but for someone like me who drives a sports sedan in an area that sees serious snow only a few times a year, and someone who doesn't want to deal with the hassle and extra expense of doing summer and winter tires and wheels... these tires are a perfect compromise.

Look. I'm a high school kid, with not much money, and I researched a lot on TireRack to get 4 sumitomo HTR A/S P01s after a sudden accident on the way back from K.C. It was the best tire that the store carries. So I got them for 398. Which is not so cheap but.. hey it is the only thing that touches the road.



Dry and Wet has been excellent. I have to admit sometimes I used the tires too hard and then the ABS warns in the rain... Well. It's my fault not theirs. One time, some nobrainer driver with Pontiac 6.0L even lost me in an unintentional racing in a roundabout.. which shows how good these sumitomos are. Very quiet. There's a section of city 40mph road right outside our hwy exit ramp, and I run that road a lot... Wow. You only can hear the engine! Highway has been impressive, since I go to K.C. frequently with my family... and I always drive; handling has been excellent. Recently we had 2 snows in the city.. and it's a tiny town so not much municipal snow cleanups on the roads. But the tires run nicely. I'm not saying it'll ever beat SNOW TIRES, but if you give them a deal with low speed, early breaking, they can really show you how efficient they work. keep the tire pressure steady, folks... I'm going to bump my tire PSI a little higher too... they say low temps decrease air volumes--> tire rigidity... which sounds make sense. Anyways. Good tires, recommended. Better than the Cooper Cobra GT fronts + Goodyear Eagle G/A rears for sure.

I am very happy with this tire. The previous set were Goodyear Eagle RS-A. The RS-A has better handling, but lousy wear and became very noisy by 20K miles. Also, with the RS-A, you feel every crack in the road. The GT has a slightly softer feel, but a much smoother ride.

These tires really livened up my car's responsiveness. Not only do they corner nicely, but the car feels quicker accelerating as well. These are as quiet as the OEM Dunlop run-flats, but handle better. They really complement the 328's suspension. I was somewhat taking a leap of faith buying these as I havent had Goodyears for 20 years, but so far I am happy with them... will update when I get more miles on them.

My setup:
My Shelby GT500 came equipped with this tire in the following sizes:
F:265/40/ZR19
R:285/35/ZR20

Pros:
- This soft rubber tire has an amazing amount of grip when warmed. (It takes a couple of miles to reach appropriate temperatures and peak performance)
- Rarely lose traction even with the large amount of torque outputted by the car.
- The tire is fairly quiet considering the size that I have installed.

Cons:
- The performance of this tire is reduced significantly when driving in wet conditions.
- The same quality which gives this tire an amazing amount of grip, causes its tread wear to be incredibly high.
- The tire has a very small shallow tread.

Result:
This tire is amazing, both on and off the track, when weather conditions are dry and warm. Traction is significantly reduced in wet conditions, chances of hydroplaning are significantly increased.
The high tread wear, combined with the shallow tread, causes the life of the tire to be short and is definitely not recommended for a daily driver.
I would recommend purchasing this tire if the life of the tire is not a concern and you plan on driving very aggressively on dry roads. This tire will not let you down in dry and warm conditions.
If hydroplaning is a concern(i.e. it rains a lot where you live) or reduced life is a concern or you feel that you may not need the extreme amount of grip, then this tire is not for you.

I appreciate the input from others w/same tires. Bought the car w/3200 miles and oringal tires. Can not find the same tire in any other brand. Reading reviews gives me hope that if I buy a new set they will perform better. Once these have gone over 3 to 4 years the rubber gets very hard and will not hook up. Afraid of corners at speed until I get new set, wish the size came in another brand but such is life. On the GT, absolutely the best American car ever! Tires, fair, car no question.

Replaced the OEM Pirelli PZeros with these. At first I was weary of all-season tires (some call them no-seasons), but now I am definitely sold! When new, the Pirellis had better traction at ambient temperatures over 60 degrees, but not by much. However, at cooler temperatures the Pirellis are useless compared with this tire. My Mustang is now drivable, even spiritedly, at cool or even sub-freezing temperatures. Note that I do NOT intend to drive my Mustang in snowy conditions. I have an alternative vehicle for that. However, it is nice to be able to enjoy my Mustang on dry winter days, or even on most spring/fall mornings.
Here in Iowa, for a daily driven car, these all-seasons will outperform summer tires 9 out of 12 months in a year. Another point in favor of these Good Year all-seasons is that I expect a lot longer tread life from them. The Pirellis only lasted me 10K miles.
I have driven quieter tires than these Good Years. However, compared to the noise the Pirellis were making near the end of their life, they were a much welcome relief. Traction is a lot better than I expected. Another thing I like is that the loss of traction is more gradual and more predictable. The Pirellis’ were the opposite. As a result, there is less axle-hop upon launch. Steering feedback is good, and the car feels well planted. I haven’t driven these long enough yet to comment about their tread wear, and I won’t be driving them on snow.
I would definitely recommend these tires for a daily driven high-performance vehicle in higher latitudes where you won’t get the most from summer tires’ temperature-sensitive compounds throughout most of the year.

 

Lessons Learned at the Arctic Circle: Testing All-Season Tires

Friday, November 16, 2012 by Cy Chowattukunnel

For optimum snow grip, nothing compares to dedicated winter / snow tires. But, what if you live on the edge of the Snowbelt and need to run one set of tires year-round? Then you're better served by purchasing a set of all-season tires with decent light snow capability. 

How do different all-season tires perform in the snow? Our test team has traveled to Sweden the past few winters to find out. Below are brief recaps of five different all-season categories and how certain tires performed during our time near the Arctic Circle.

Ultra High Performance All-Season Test

In comparing the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position, Continental ExtremeContact DWS, Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus and Pirelli PZero Nero All Season we found the Continental ExtremeContact DWS to perform best in the snow with the Pirelli finishing a close second. On ice, the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus led the way with Continental's ExtremeContact DWS and Pirelli's PZero Nero All Season coming in next. Bridgestone's Potenza RE970AS Pole Position trailed the others by a fair margin. Complete test results can be found here.

Eco-Focused All-Season Test

When driving on the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422, Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology, Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max and Yokohama AVID TRZ we found the Goodyear and Bridgestone options to be tops in the snow and on ice. Goodyear's Assurance Fuel Max delivered impressive results, especially under braking. Yokohama AVID TRZ tires were competitive, but showed lower overall snow traction than the other three tires.

High Performance All-Season Test

The Dunlop SP Sport Signature, Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS and Goodyear Eagle GT all offered decent snow and ice performance. The fourth tire in the test, the Yokohama AVID ENVigor, couldn't match the others on both surfaces. It provided a considerably lower level of acceleration, braking and cornering traction. To see how Dunlop's aggressive tread pattern paid a dividend in the snow, read "Testing High Performance All-Season Tires."

Eco-Focused Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season Test

Amongst the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia, Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology and the Goodyear Assurance CS Fuel Max, the Bridgestone did the best in the snow with the Goodyear coming in next. When it came to braking on the ice, Goodyear's Assurance CS Fuel Max edged out the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia. The Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology was fairly easy to control, but showed somewhat lower overall traction than the other two.

Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season Introductory Comparison Test

In assessing the General AltiMAX HP, Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season, Hankook Optimo H727 and Michelin HydroEdge with Green X, the Hankook Optimo H727 performed the best in snow and on ice. It was rather impressive in the snow, delivering very good overall traction and predictable handling. To view results from our test, take a look at "Testing the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season."

October 23, 2012

'13 GT (brembo / track pack) Car came with PZero summer only, which worked tremendously as long as temp is above 50F. No plans to drive car in any snow however in NH we have quite a few days in the fall and spring that are obviously below 50. Wasn't ready to "park it" for the winter so ordered these with a set of ford track pack wheels.

Steering and handling - no noticeable change. Progressive break-away, recover nicely as well. Steering response / turn in just as immediate as the PZeros. Does provide a bit more feedback information through wheel (mostly because of stiffer sidewalls)

Braking - Under hard braking tire does induce more ABS action however still can generate similar braking #s. Wet road braking is probably better than PZeros

Ride / Comfort - Do ride stiffer than the PZeros. Road noise is lower. No change in tracking for car

Wet traction is great; equal to PZero. Zero issue with hydro-planning.

Dry traction is more than adequate but not nearly the bite that PZeros have (provided it was 50 degrees out). My best 0-60 time on Pzero was 4.2 with these it's 4.5 (according to onboard track app)

Overall = Good looking tire, tremendous in wet conditions, rides very quiet. Ride is stiffer and dry-road traction is 90% as good as summer only tires.

Tire-Rack Service : Ordered tires at 3:00pm on monday afternoon. Had them on my car by 10AM tuesday (next day). Wheel balance is spot-on.. no shakes or vibrations on speeds fast enough for a few week stint in the pokey ;)

December 25, 2009

I mounted these on my wife's car after work one night, and drove out on them into a snowstorm- 5 inches accumulated with no plowtrucks in sight, this was in the North Country in New York. They took my wife through some intense snowstorms, without her destroying her car, which speaks volumes of the tires' winter capabilities. Since then til now, they continue to impress. Went from NNY through Chicago, St Louis, OK City, on down to Central Texas, moving home, fully loaded. A pothole bent a rim and the tire survived. Other reviews of this tire feeling too neutral on-center are bogus. Wet weather characteristics are good, the tread voids and pattern work well at all levels, and I've yet to get them numb in any frog-drowners. Highway noise is completely livable. Dry cornering is impeccable with gradual breakaway at the limit. They hold pressure well throughout the seasons. At install, they balanced easily enough, after difficult mounting from some pretty stiff sidewalls. In all, a very fine tire and great value.
