Goodyear Eagle LS Tire Review & Rating
Used as original equipment on several different coupes, sedans, minivans and crossovers, the Goodyear Eagle LS is one of the company’s biggest selling tires. Designed for all-season use, the LS is engineered to provide good traction and a smoother ride.
An all-season tread compound is combined with a symmetrical tread pattern and Goodyear triple tread block geometry to provide enhanced handling on dry or wet road surfaces. The rounded shoulders and larger outer tread blocks are created to increase cornering and add quicker steering response, which this model does a nice job with.
Wide circumferential grooves and additional siping around the tread are built to improve wet road performance and reduce the risk of hydroplaning, while maximizing traction in light snow. Curved pitch boundaries in the tread design enhance ride quality by eliminating road noise and keeping things quiet inside the vehicle.
The Eagle LS sports two steel belts with nylon reinforcement for added strength and durability when driving at higher speeds. They also add more even treadwear and a longer lifespan, which Goodyear backs up with a 70,000 mile tread guarantee. You will find many sizes available in several different speed ratings.
- Dry traction handling and cornering are excellent
- Steering response is crisp and provides good feedback
- Comfortable riding tire
- Would like to see better wet handling performance
- Winter traction and handling is poor
- Treadwear issues
The Eagle LS is one of those kind of tires that you would think would perform much better than it actually does, especially due to its use as OE on so many different types of vehicles. Unfortunately, its performance is not up to par. Sure, it does a few things very well, such as traction on dry pavement and it has good cornering abilities for the most part. Ride comfort is ok as well.
Where the tire falls short is certainly in winter road conditions. We’ve heard this from reviews by other drivers all stating how poor the traction is on snow and ice. Beyond that, wet road grip is not up to levels of other top tires in this class, and treadlife has shown to be shorter than expected.
Overall, we give it a rank in the bottom half of the touring all-season category.
