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.
