Goodyear Eagle Sport All Season
Tire Review & Rating
Goodyear's new Eagle Sport All Season is quickly becoming one
of the more popular high performance all-season tires on the market today. Designed for drivers of all types of
sport coupes, sedans and sport trucks, the Eagle Sport AS offers more responsive handling to go with dependable
traction in year round weather conditions.
A high-tech all-season tread compound and asymmetric tread pattern provide
increased dry and wet road performance. Dry traction and cornering grip are enhanced through larger outer shoulder
blocks and notched center ribs. It further increases steering response and feel, which is quite noticeable on this
Driving on wet surfaces is aided by four circumferential grooves around the tread
that channel away water and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. Goodyear has also added full-depth sipes on this model
that work to provide biting edges in rain, snow and ice.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are reinforced with polyamide
for added strength and increased durability at higher speeds. Goodyear has also used their unique RaceWrap
Construction Technology that is used in their racing tires on the NASCAR circuit which increase handling stability
and steering response.
There is also a built-in rim protector that helps prevent damage to expensive
wheels. Sizes are available from 15 to 20 inches, and speed ratings of V and W. A somewhat surprising 50,000 mile
tread guarantee is also included on this model.
Dry and wet traction
Steering is very responsive
Impressive cornering grip
Goodyear has a very good model in the new Eagle Sport All Season. We feel that
it's a higher performer than the legendary Eagle GT, yet priced well below Eagle F1 models. Traction on both dry or
wet pavement is excellent, but it's the cornering grip and steering response that stick out the most. We really
like the grip and feel this tire provides.
Ride comfort is better than many tires in this class. There is not a lot of
unwanted road noise to have to deal with, and the bumps are not as harsh as many others. Tread life is longer
lasting than we expected and backed up with an excellent 50,000 mile warranty.
Overall, if you're looking for a top performing all-season tire, the Eagle Sport
is a solid choice. Not only that, but Goodyear has priced it lower than you might expect, making it a good value
for the money.
Goodyear provides a 6-year or 50,000 mile tread warranty on the Eagle Sport.
Mileage is reduced by half on rear if differently sized than front. Tire uniformity is guaranteed for the first
year or first 2/32 inch of wear.
Materials and workmanship are warranted for 6-years and include free replacement
during the first year or first 2/32 inch of wear. A prorated amount is given for the remaining time period or down
to the final 2/32 inch of tread depth.
