Initial Review, 25,000 Miles on Tires
December 06, 2013

These 275/55-20's were OE on my 2007 GMC Sierra. Was a great tire all the way around (handling, stopping, quietness) by this semi-aggressive driver. Only real drawback was need to replace them at about 20,000 miles. I replaced with Cooper Zeon (horrible tire; loud, vibration, no traction) then yanked those in less than one year (gave them away). Finally replaced with Michelin LTX M/S2 and put probably 45-50000 on them. The LTX was a nicer tire than the Goodyear LS-2 in every way except mileage. I can't explain it, but I lost almost 2mpg with these LTX M/S2, but they're comfortable and quiet. The LTX M/S2 has a little poorer traction (regular, AWD, and 4WD) than the Goodyear LS-2 in snow, which have pretty decent winter traction. I don't see snow that many days a year, and find myself using AWD more with the Michelins than I ever did with the Goodyears, for both snowy and rainy conditions. If only I could get a 50K version of the Goodyear LS-2...

These tire are very, very good in snow. Since I am currently using them in the winter I am not at all concerned about road noise, etc. However, I do have to say that, for noise, handling, etc., these tires are fine and are no worse than an average all season tire. I live on top of a hill and I have to drive through heavy snow and at times, ice. these tires are very good and provide an exceptional level of confidence when driving in these difficult conditions. As for mileage, I am not certain since I will (hopefully) be able to switch them out with my all season tires in May. At the rate this winter is going I am not certain that will happen (perhaps June?!). regardless, yes, I am confident in these tires and would not hesitate to purchase these tire again.

I live just outside of the Washington, DC area, home of the just about the worst traffic in the country. Luckily, my daily commute consists mostly of free flowing highway driving with light traffic (down the new ICC toll-road) so 70+ mph is my usual pace there. Otherwise, my normal driving is suburban stop & go, daily grind, sort of stuff. These Kumho Ecsta 4X tires are my 3rd set of tires on this vehicle and by FAR the best I've used. The stock tires were Goodyear Eagle RSA's and as the reviews for those state, they were completely average tires with poor handling in anything but dry conditions. My next set of tires, Yokohama Avid V4S were old standby's that I'd had before on a previous vehicle. They were great tires, especially for the money. At 107,500 I was ready to purchase new tires as I usually always can get 50K+ mi. out of my tires. I read a lot of reviews about the newly redesigned Yoko's but couldn't help noticing the great reviews that the Kumho Ecsta's had received. I took a shot many years ago with Yoko's and have been really happy with them on both my G35x, Ford Explorer, and my Honda Accord V6 coupe. Sorry for the rambling, but just wanted to give some background. In any case, the price on the Kumho Ecsta's was great, and the trusted Tire Rack reviews convinced me to give them a shot on my G. I've had these Ecsta's now for 16,500 mi. from 2/20/13 to current (one year) and loved every minute of these tires. The ride is great, the noise level is adequate, and handling whether through our 90+ degree HUMID summer to our 10 degree lows in several inches of snow in the winter has been nothing short of spectacular at every level. I would highly recommend these tires.

I knew when I purchased these tires that they would not be the best for winter driving, but they would be superior for dry and wet driving. This is exactly what I have found to be true. In the dry and wet they are fantastic for sure. My car handles much better than before while using the OE GoodYears. Turn in is excellent and they stick like glue in dry or wet weather. The tradeoff comes with snow and ice. These tires are adequate for winter driving. They do provide reasonable traction in snow.
Would I buy them again now that I have lived with them, the answer is absolutely. Would I recommend them to someone that is looking for more that a reasonable amount of winter traction, maybe not. They certainly meet my needs and expectations. I would rather have a great tire for three seasons and compromise a little with winter driving.
If your looking for better winter driving capability but are willing to loose a bit of handling then you should look at the DWS's.
Its all about tradeoffs.

I live on a mountaintop farm in rural West Virginia. The road into the farm is steep and 1/2 mile long. Plus they don't get around to plowing the county roads for several days after a storm. This season, 2013-14 has been a great test of these tires. My wife and I have two identical 2009 Subaru Forester vehicles. Hers has a new set of all season tires and mine has these Goodyear WRTs. I bought these tires based on the good reviews I have read about them. I am glad to say the reviews are correct. These tires are awesome! I have yet to get stuck or even slide around even in the deepest snow and on glare ice. They go in any conditions. I have to remind myself not to get carried away with driving in bad conditions because it feels like I am on dry pavement. I tackle very steep roads in 10" of fresh snow and barely have any wheelspin. On ice I have tried emergency stopping and fooling around trying to break the tires loose and they amaze me with their gripping and stopping power. Compared to the all season tires on my wife's car they are probably 3 to 4 times better. I now consider the all seasons dangerous to drive. Bottom line is that these tires have exceeded my expectations and get the highest rating from me. Going with a pure winter tire like this is the only way to go. Spring for the spare set of rims and run them just in the winter. That also lets you get pure summer tires for max performance during the rest of the year. I have bought my last set of all season tires. Congrats to Goodyear for a job well done on these tires. I hope when they finally wear out that they will still be available. No sign of wear yet but it is the first season. Surprisingly good handling on dry pavement and very acceptable noise level. They run smooth as silk. Buy these!

These Tires Are Awesome on a small car for winter driving !!I live at the highest point in Pennsylvania - We get snow when most everyone else gets rain or sleet. I got all 4 tires studded and have had a very good experience with these tires. Overall in the last 25 years of driving in heavy snow and winter conditions; THESE TIRES HAVE BEEN THE BEST on a small car. I have tried numerous, many different types of treads, manufacturers and even some different sizes IN THE LAST 25 YEARS BY FAR THESE TIRES OUTPERFORMED THEM ALL. Granted these tires last for one season only for my car, but well worth the investment. On dry pavement with the studs you have to use your head- they will not corner and hug the road they were not intended for that but when the snow comes that's when you will see the payoff. As long as Goodyear offers these tires, I will buy them every year. I would recommend anyone that has a small car to try these tires.

Initial Review, 8,000 Miles on Tires
March 13, 2014

Just moved to Michigan this year from the south... Surprise! Worst winter in 20+ years. I bought these tires as a possible alternative to dedicated winter tires due to the high mileage my car sees. A lot of other reviewers were claiming 70,000+ miles and that sounded great with a tire that could handle winter weather. (they have the mountain/snowflake on the side) I braced myself for a noisy, bumpy ride as the car came with a Michelin touring tire originally. I can honestly say, these tires are quieter and ride almost as smoothly as the Michelin's. That said, the Michelin's were worn when I replaced them so I don't hold the noise against them. These tires have never left me stuck or stranded and I didn't usually spin or slide unless I was trying to. A few times I had to disable the traction control to let them spin and clear. This was only in slow speed situations like cutting fresh tracks in 8+ inches of heavy wet snow. Not sure you can ask anymore for a longer treadlife all-terrain in my opinion. My biggest complaint in the 8,000+ miles I have had them comes from the fact that they tend to "catch" grooves or seams in the highway which can be unnerving when the road is icy. I noticed it the first day I had the tires and now I have gotten more used to it and it is less of an issue but at first it did get my attention. Overall, I would and already have recommend these tires. Not the best winter solution, not the best off-road solution, definitely not the best for mpg's or handling performance. Just a really good mix of life, traction, and so far low noise.

My first ever set of snow tires, I've lived in Michigan my entire life and always thought snow was something you just learned to drive in, tires were less important than your ability to handle conditions. I was wrong, this was the year to learn this lesson, I haven't seen the pavement on my road since December 18th, it snowed 3 more inches this morning, March 1st. These inexpensive tires have turned my old T-bird into a winter driving wonder, I haven't had this much snow fun since I was a teen. Snow tires don't just let you go in the snow, you can turn and stop also. Experimentinig in places I know to always be slippery, I could slamm on the brakes and it just stopped, Ican't say it's like driving on dry pavement but it sure is confidence inspiring. It makes winter driving feel safer. I will never go a winter without again.

These are outstanding tires that I would highly recommend for so owners. Although these are not winter tires they performed flawlessly when traveling in a wicked snow storm,even passing stuck salt trucks on terrible roads. Much quieter than OE Michelin tires. Wet traction, snow, dry are also much improved. Can't comment on wear but they are outstanding tires WAY better than OE set that only lasted for 13000 miles and were down to 2/32 tread depth. I loved the look on peoples faces as they struggled with there 4wd vehicles to get around in snow as I pass them! Must have for northeast winters if all you want to run is all season tires.

So I just bought this car and I needed winter tires badly, and I had them studded for extra peace of mind when I came here to tire rack and bought a winter tire package with steel wheels as these are just for winter and don't need fancy wheels covered in snow and crap all winter. I installed these very recently and first impression were good from the looks in person. I took them for a drive as soon as I installed them with our roads being completely covered in packed snow on plowed roads and 4-7 inches of powder on unplowed roads. We have recently received 18 inches of snow in the last 3 days and these tires take it all on without issue. The only time I had to slow down was when the front bumper was hitting the fresh powder on the roads (6 inches deep powder) and was blowing up and covering my windshield and I couldn't see. I stopped several times on snow covered hills and my car just walked op the hill without issue. Being located in Watertown, NY we get a lot of lake effect snow and it can hit at a moments notice and I spent the most part of my day testing theses tires out. Stopping was easily done as long as you don't just mash on the brakes as to be expected with any tire the ABS kicked in but still stopped controllably. Deep snow wasn't an issue, some icy roads are easily manageable, packed snow covered roads were a cinch and I really enjoyed driving in the fowl weather with these tires. No white knuckles for this guy just ease of travel as I was back to feeling safe and confident behind the wheel with these shoes on the car. Now my car has quite a bit of torque for a Front Wheel Drive vehicle that I was concerned about but the traction control worked well and the tires gripped well. These tires were cheapest offered for my car and I was skeptical as I usually go for blizzaks but these I think perform at the same level easily. I would buy these again without worry and knowing they are lower priced than the other competitors just made it easy to choose

Initial Review, 10,000 Miles on Tires
February 28, 2014

I bought these tires a couple months ago, based on the test ratings on this website. As usual, the Tire Rack ratings were dead on! I drive (on average) about 2,000 miles per week, and live in west Michigan. Due to the unpredictable nature of Michigan weather, I needed a tire that performed well in all weather conditions. These tires do everything they say they do, and at a good price.

I was concerned, having a rear-wheel drive car, that an all-season tire would not perform well enough for winter driving. Acceleration at times can be a struggle, but I've never had an issue with traction, when every other vehicle on the road didn't have the same problems. Stopping on icy, slushy, and snow covered roads is NEVER a problem. I've never had a set of tires that allows me to stop like these tires do.

In dry conditions, I don't think there is an UHP-tire available that out-perfoms these. I'm sure there are others that perform as well, but it would be a stretch to say they are better. The tires that are as good, are generally more than twice the price. The only tires that I would consider relatively equal both in performance and price, would be the Continental Extreme Contact DWS'. I think the tread wear is a little better on the Hankook tires though.

Road noise (on good roads) is all but non-existant. My car runs 40 series up front, with 35 series in the rear. I expected these tires to have a very harsh ride, but they are surprisingly comfortable. As anticipated, corner roll doesn't happen, but it shouldn't with such a low-profile tire. Heat disipation is good. I've only had them in weather up to 65 F at this point, but they have never felt surprisingly warm, even after several miles of spirited curved road driving.

The only complaint I have, is these tires "track" pretty bad on grooved roads. It may be due to the 225 front, and 255 rear widths, but I didn't notice this issue with the Goodyear tires my car came with.

Overall, Exceptional Tires

I believe they are rated for 50,000 miles and since it's not my daily driver anymore I've waited and pushed them through the winter. I'm looking at Michelins that are rated to get 70,000. Only because rating difference and I recently bought a set of Michelins for my car and I'm extremely impressed with them.

I was torn between these tires and and the Firestone Winterforce. I had the Winterforce tires on another vehicle of mine which was a Buick Lesabre the Winterforce made my Lesabre a tank in the snow I always felt safe and in control in any winter driving condition but the tires had to be switched out after winter. I wanted a winter tire that had some all season characteristics so I took a chance on these Goodyears and was immediately impressed they were quieter than the BF Goodrich tire that I had just taken off the car the sidewall is softer than an all-season tire but that is to be expected. I previously had Michelin's winter ice tires on this car for twice the cost the only thing I can say that was better about the Michelins they had a stiffer sidewall. These Goodyear tires so far have more then met my expectations.We have been hammered with lots of snow and sub zero temps in Minnesota this year and the Goodyears have performed flawlessly. I can't recommend these tires enough!

Bought these to go on my girlfriend's infiniti. Replace some old Goodyears. I'm one for spirited driving and these tires hold up well for that. dry grip is solid and it takes some pushing to get these tires to their limits in a big sedan. very stable overall, but there's a very slight hesitation when doing sudden course correction (did a quick homebrew autocross when the tires were new). Most people won't notice it but i'm used to driving an Mr2.
Wet grip is great for an all season and im constantly impressed by how stable it is and its resistance to sliding. You can get it to slide if you push too hard, but i can take the same turns comfortably at 80% speed wet vs dry. wet braking is a little less impressive, as it will engage the ABS quickly if you stab it too hard, but generally good braking performance in light and heavy rain.
Snow/ice performance is average for an all season, Light snow being significantly better than deep, but i've only needed to dig myself out once this winter, so from standstills/parking it gets you going just fine.
I drive with traction control off most of the time and i have to actually try to lose the rear end on anything other than ice. very predictable when a slide begins as well.
For the record, i live in Chicago, so i've seen wet, dry, snow and ice in the same week.
Rides a little harsh and drones a bit at 70mph, but those are acceptable trade-offs for a the perforamnce/price envelope this tire gives.
four/five stars.

I bought these tires for my optima last year and didn't want to review it until i had them a full year to see how they did when i put them back on for winter this year. We generally have around 6+ inches of snow on the ground in winter here and the tires performed wonderfully. I never was stuck once even when the snow around a foot+ it let my little car plow right through and should no signs of slippage. My car doesn't have traction control or abs so for these tires not to spin on ice and snow means there great winter tires. Also after having them on through winter last year and removing them in April and then re installing this year for winter the tires barely show any signs of wear even with 6,000 miles on them. I bought another set for my wife's kia soul and there also working wonderful and no shes not scared when she has to drive to work in the winter.

This is definitely not a tire for winter driving conditions. The Cayenne handled very well in the snow with the OEM Goodyears. As soon as there is a little slush on the road the Continentals get squirrely. In snowy conditions it's difficult to keep the car on the road without going slower than all of the other traffic. Would definitely not recommend for regions that experience much / any snow.

When I was looking at new tires everyone was pretty much in agreement that these were 'the' tires to get for a Jeep. And they were right. I have been extremely happy with them. Half of my daily drive is on gravel (roughly 16 miles) and it amazes me how well the tread has held up, as gravel just eats the tread off most tires.

I don't think that there is any additional road noise on the highway than the stock light truck tires my Jeep originally came with, which surprised me since these have a much more aggressive tread.

I'm getting ready to buy a new set for this coming winter and by then I should have close to 45,000 miles on these.

Initial Review, 3,000 Miles on Tires
January 28, 2014

Without compromise, I normally use snow tires in the winter and performance tires for summer. After getting whacked with the Great Recession I decided to save some money and I purchased these Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Seasons, at the same time thinking it would be a compromise for winter driving. To my surprise these tires work very well in the winter! If you're buying all-season tires you'll be pleased with these.
