Goodyear Eagle LS-2 Tire Review & Rating

The Goodyear Eagle LS-2 has been designed to provide all-season sport traction and handling to go along with a smoother and more comfortable ride. Used also as original equipment on several minivans, crossovers and sport utility vehicles, the LS2 will also fit many luxury sedans and other vehicles.

An all-season premium tread compound and symmetric triple tread block pattern give this tire increased handling performance on dry road surfaces. Independent tread blocks enhance cornering grip and add more responsive steering and control. Tire stability is very good on this tire.

Goodyear Eagle LS2 Tire Review

Handling performance on wet pavement is increased due in part to the tire’s wider circumferential grooves that channel away water and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. Added sipes around the tread provide biting edges on light snow covered pavement. Goodyear’s computer optimized tread blocks lower road noise and improve overall ride quality.

Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are nylon reinforced for added strength and durability at higher speeds, while the polyester cord body increases ride comfort. Sizes are available from 15-20 inches, and the LS-2 comes with either an H or V-speed rating.

Pros

  • Good dry traction
  • Above average cornering grip
  • Responsive steering and tire stability

Cons

  • Wet and winter traction could be better
  • Would like to see improved treadlife
  • Bump up the ride comfort

Overall Thoughts

The LS-2, or Luxury Sport 2 as it’s known as, has been around for a few years now and it may be starting to show its age. We applaud Goodyear in providing this tire with good handling and cornering grip on most road surfaces. You’ll find the steering is responsive and the tire remains stable in all speed ranges. 

While those are the areas where this tire does ok, the areas that need improvement are numerous. Traction on wet pavement is a big area in which we would like to see much better performance. We’ve heard drivers mention the tire slides too easily on wet streets around corners, as well as hydroplaning issues. In addition, winter traction and handling is similar to that on the original LS… quite poor. Finally, treadlife is another area where many drivers have mentioned they have not gotten the life they expected.

Overall, we rate this model in the lower half of the touring all-season category. We feel there are much better models available such as the Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring or Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus to name just a couple.
