Goodyear Eagle LS-2
Follow-Up Review: 25,001 miles on tires
February 11, 2014
Note: I only have 4000-miles on this new set of LS-2; TireRack website won't allow me to put under 25000 (my original set of LS-2's)...<br><br>Following-up: after switching from my Michelin LTX M/S2 back to these Goodyear LS-2, I saw only 0.3MPG better performance with the Goodyears... but the road-noise and comfort was WAY worse than the Michelins.<br><br>The LTX is a better tire all the way around except for price. I'm regretting going back to the LS-2, though these LTX tires still perform better in hard cornering (the LS-2 would roll-over a little with my heavy truck in hard cornering).
Initial Review: 25,000 miles on tires

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...
