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 tire.
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
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
