Goodyear Eagle GT (V-Speed Rated)
Follow-Up Review: 25,000 miles on tires
February 01, 2014
I've had these quite a while. They're still reasonably quiet, smooth and still grip well. Since this is a third car, it has three different drivers, and none of us have any complaints. There is still plenty of tread left so I'll be keeping them for a while yet. I'll get another set, provided I don't sell the car.<br>We haven't had much rain in the last 2 years, so wet traction isn't a big thing at this point. But for driving where there are lots of curves with safe pavement, I really like them.
Initial Review: 3,500 miles on tires

I replaced a set of Riken Raptors with the Goodyears. Much less noise, much better ride, better MPG and improved handling. I drive both mountain twisties and long freeway runs, and in both situations these are superior tires. Good grip under hard corniering and braking. I haven't had them long enough to report on tire wear, as the Z3 is a third car even thoug it gets almost 10,000 miles a year. Over all, I will proably get another set for this car, but that's a few years away at the pace we use the car. I also have a 2007 Corvette so the Z3 is a backup, rather than a daily driver. But I do like the Goodyear tire on the Z3. It seems like a good match-up.
