Initial Review, 45000 Miles on Tires
The Goodyear Eagle RSAs were the OEM tires installed on my Challenger. I was suprised by the decent tread life of the RSAs, as none of the tires on other new vehicles I've owned ever made it past 35,000 miles. However, the dry traction is only adequate, and much like other reviewers have noted, the wet weather traction is pretty awful, even when these tires were new. The car's traction control system engaged regularly in the wet, even under low-to-moderate acceleration. My pickup truck (with no load in the bed) had better wet weather performance! No problems with noise, for the most part, but they did become markedly louder on smooth roads during the last 5K miles. They also stayed balanced, as I only needed to rotate the tires at the factory recommended 6K mile interval.
