Goodyear Eagle GT Tire Review & Rating

At first glance it may seem like the Goodyear Eagle GT has been around forever. Although it has been available for more than a few years, there is a good reason for it… the tire flat out performs.

Designed for owners of all types of sport coupes and sedans, the Eagle GT of today is not the one from years ago. Goodyear has added the latest in tire technology to give this tire some very good all-season performance. The asymmetric tread pattern features an aggressive look and sports a dual zone tread compound.

Eagle GT

First up is the All-Season Zone. It provides increased traction on wet or snow covered roads by utilizing two continuous center ribs and circumferential grooves. They work together with Goodyear’s sipe technology to better evacuate water from under the tire and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. The result is more confidence behind the wheel regardless of weather conditions.

The High-Performance Zone enhances grip and handling on dry road surfaces by using larger shoulder and intermediate tread blocks. The result is a more sticky grip on dry pavement, which leads to more fun in the corners and better overall driving enjoyment.

Inside the tread you will find two steel belts that are nylon wrapped for added strength and stability at higher speeds, as well as a better overall riding comfort. Goodyear has also included a rim protector in the sidewall to help prevent possible damage to your wheels from curbing.

Pros

Cons

  • Tread wear can be an issue for some

Overall Thoughts

Note: Goodyear has since created the Eagle Sport All-Season to replace this older GT model in 2013. You may still find some of these tires sold, but eventually they will be out of stock. You can read our review on the Eagle Sport here.

As all-season sports tires go, the Goodyear Eagle GT is definitely one of the company’s better performance tires in its lineup. Grip on dry pavement is downright fun and on par with many summer performance models costing much more. Wet road handling is equally impressive and inspires confidence when the weather turns bad.

Although we have heard from some owners about shorter than expected tread wear, others have praised it for giving them more miles than expected. If an American made all-season performance tire is what you are looking for, it’s hard to go wrong with this model.
