Goodyear Eagle GT (W-Speed Rated)
Follow-Up Review: 46,000 miles on tires
Well, after 46K miles I am now on the market for a replacement set. These performed admirably and would have lasted longer had I done a better job of rotating more frequently. I could get another 5K out of the rears but the fronts are at the tread wear indicator on the outside edges (not the inside though). There are now cheaper and better rated tires available so I am going to try something different but not because of any issues with these.
Initial Review: 1,200 miles on tires
I now have put about 1,200 miles on my new set of Eagle GTs and I love them so far. They have exceeded my expectations; the only thing left to evaluate is snow traction but it is too early for that yet. I was concerned about ride comfort and noise based upon some of the other reviews but I am pleasantly surprised so far. I was exceedingly happy with the OEM Pirelli PZero Rossos that were on the car but found replacing them challenging my budget. The jury is still out for tread wear and as I said snow traction but so far I am very pleased and saved about $100 per tire over the OEM tire.
