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

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

This is an initial review of these tires, I will be doing a follow up review once I put more miles on them. They replaced the original 16 Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S that came equipped on my Accord sedan. I had them installed and took them on a short road trip the very next day which was perfect for breaking the tires in. I didn't get to test the handling as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2

These are some really nice tires, almost perfect, really. For my driving style, the car is almost 100% predictable in the wet or dry. The only downside is that these tires will start to chirp a little easier than some Yoko SDrives I've had before, even though the F1's will actually hang on better. The wear, as expected, is pretty quick, although I admit a...  Read More

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

Finally had a chance to test these on a bad black ice day and was blown away by how much traction these had. Cars were sliding all over the road, but I did not lose grip once. Same in light snow. Have not had a chance to try deeper snow yet.Dry traction is superb...just as good cornering as the Conti 5 Summers that these replaced. Road feedback is...  Read More

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

These are very good tires. They are outstanding in the dry and very good in the wet. Very stable and very good steering response. I track my car with Dunlop Direzza ZII ultra high performance tires I put on for that purpose only, and I can say the Eagle F1's 80-90% of that tire in terms of grip. Which is saying a lot because the Direzzas are almost racing...  Read More

These are the best tires I've had as far as tread wear and performance on any Mercedes that I have owned for the last 20 years. I would definitely buy them again.   Read More

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

These tires are a huge improvement to my last set; in all categories (although I haven't been in rain or snow with them. (So Cal is still pretty dry). These tires exhibit outstanding traction in cornering, and a better ride quality than previous Z-speed rated tires I had. Very little road noise, combined with excellent dry handling (rain is probably very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

This tire came with the car, and so far it has performed very well in all kinds of weather. Suffolk New York has been hit with ice and snow and this tire performed beyond my expectations. I just kept the tire to see how it does in the snow before I buy a snow tire, don't need winter tire this is more than capable. I commute 94 miles a day to go to work and I...  Read More

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

I purchased OEM 18's and these tires to use as a winter set up in lieu of the 19 summer tires that come standard on the sport package. Considering that these are an all season tire, I am very impressed with their performance across the board.The dry traction is very impressive, allowing me to take off ramps a little quicker than suggested with great...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

I purchased my AWD Acura TLX in January. I have driven the tires in all conditions including light snow, heavy snow, greasy wet snow, packed snow, dry roads, and wet roads. Based on the reviews I read, I expected the worst. I have been pleasantly surprised by the performance. With that being said, I know Acura's excellent AWD system, the TLX's sound...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2

One of four tires was out of round and could not be balanced. It took three tries to get one that could be kinda balanced and drivability is limited to 70mph. Even with relatively cool summers of Alaska, the tread seemed to melt off. Great concept but poor QA/QC from the factory.   Read More

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

I've owned these tires during a summer in CT, a fall in MI, and the snow-taccular winter in the City of Chicago. Never in any circumstance have these tires let me down. In fact I had to give them a 10 for hydroplaning resistance because these are the first set of tires I've owned (and I used to get new tires every year for awhile) that resisted hydroplaning....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A

I've been reading various good and bad reviews about this tire. Confusing to me that some really don't like this tire. Possibly certain tires suit certain vehicles differently?These tires came as OE on my new 2011 Maxima. The car and the tires are both great in my opinion. The tires are smooth and quiet, which again, is not the experience everyone seems to...  Read More

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

Recently installed a set of Goodyear Eagle A/S on my 2009 Pontiac G8 GT and love them. The previous tires were Michelin Pilot Super Sports, they had good traction on dry, warm, smooth pavement, but rode rough, noisy and had a nasty habit of following every groove and rut in the pavement. Scary as -------- in the wet. Only got 20,000 miles out of them before...  Read More

Direct steering feel. Wife loves it on the minivan. Firm yet very quiet and smooth ride. Driving on curvy roads is much more enjoyable. Changing lanes is immediate. Rain traction is great. Rain traction has gotten better as they break-in. The rim protector is a nice bonus near curbs. We love them. Perfect fit for our tastes in wanting good steering feel and...  Read More

I just put a pair of these Goodyear's on the front of my 2010 Camaro SS/RS to replace a pair of General G-MAX AS-03's. My main reason for the change was noise and I am very impressed with the Goodyear's. They are virtually silent. They also turn great, very responsive. I have not had them out in the rain or snow yet.   Read More
