Road Hugger GT Eco Tire Review & Rating

Built with sporty handling and dependable traction in mind, the Road Hugger GT Eco also features a comfortable ride and an eco-friendly tread design for drivers of all types of coupes and sedans who are looking for a value priced all season tire.

A special tread compound lowers rolling resistance for increased fuel efficiency, while also lowering CO2 emissions and being more environmentally friendly. The five rib pattern utilizes interlocking tread blocks that work to enhance handling and stability throughout the speed range. Further, the tire incorporates an apex filler that extends up into the sidewall for additional handling and cornering performance.

Road Hugger GT Eco Reviews

The tire’s four large circumferential grooves and crossover grooves increase traction on wet road surfaces and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. Full-depth sipes around the tread add biting edges for some extra grip in light snow and other winter conditions.

Inside the tire you’ll find two steel belted construction and a polyester cord body for added strength and durability, as well as improved ride comfort. Sizes are available from 15-17 inches, and a 60,000 mile tread warranty is also provided.

Pros

  • Dry and wet traction
  • Cornering grip
  • Comfortable ride
  • Budget-friendly cost

Cons

  • Winter handling

Overall Thoughts

With a tread design similar to the Kumho KH30, we found the Road Hugger GT Eco delivers some pretty good overall performance. Grip and handling on dry pavement feels confident and like that which you would find on more expensive all-season tires. The ride is comfortable, and while there is a little road noise we don’t find it to be anything too excessive.

Winter handling is not a strong point for this model, although you can say that for most any all-season tire. It holds its own in light snow, but don’t expect too much when conditions get worse.

Overall, with its low price and decent performance this is not a bad choice in new tires.
