Goodyear Eagle Sport All Season Tire Review & Rating

Built to replace the popular Eagle GT, the new Goodyear Eagle Sport All Season has quickly become one of Goodyear’s best-selling 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.

Goodyear Eagle Sport All Season Tire Review

Driving on wet surfaces is aided by four circumferential grooves around the tread that channel away water and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. This is a strength for this tire and one that is often mentioned in other driver reviews. 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 Race Wrap 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.

Pros

  • Dry and wet traction
  • Steering is very responsive
  • Impressive cornering grip
  • Excellent warranty

Cons

  • Winter traction
  • Lower the road noise a bit

Overall Thoughts

Goodyear has a very good model in the new Eagle Sport All Season. We feel that it’s a much higher performing tire than the legendary Eagle GT, yet priced below their line of 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 and it is just a step behind that of the F1 Asymmetric All Season.

Ride comfort is better than many tires in this class. However, you can expect to hear a little more road noise than you’ll find on other top tires like the Continental DWS06 or Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3 Plus. Tread life is better than average and comes backed with an excellent 50,000 mile warranty.

Overall, if you’re looking for a top performing all-season tire, the Eagle Sport is not a bad choice, especially if you do not put a premium on noise and winter traction. In addition, Goodyear has priced it lower than you might expect.

  1. I had gotten these tires last year, and I think I made a mistake. The road noise it’s like if you have a bad wheel bearing. It’s just terrible. I should’ve bought the continental tires my car first came with. But anyways, they still look like new, they do amazingly good in the snow and rain.

  2. It’s a Sport Tire! It differs from a touring tire. I put a complete set on my 2002 BMW 330Ci convertible. The tire performs as it should, and provides the type of response I expected in dry and rain conditions.

    I have not and likely will not test these in the snow, as the convertible usually hangs out in the garage during the winter (Chicago). Even though the tire is considered All Season, people need to understand that an actual snow tire (perhaps even with chains) should be considered for some geographic regions. That is, these tires would probably not fare well in upper New England or Siberia during the winter…you know? They are not snow tires and are not marketed as such.

    Overall, I like the performance and the appearance of these tires on my Bimmer.

  3. Bought these tires for my 2014 Nissan Altima 2.5SV. There is noticeable noise from the tires as you drive, more so if you have the windows down. It is by far not unbearable to have to listen to. It’s slightly louder than the norm. Regarding tires gripping the roadway while driving, they are by far superior to any other tires I have used on any vehicle. I’ve currently put 28k miles on them and they still look near new. I believe I’ll be able to achieve 55-60k miles before needing new tires. For the price and quality this by far is the best tire.

  4. Just awesome tire. I have used eagle sport for my car, just an awesome experience. Many many thanks for sharing with us. I’m going to share with my social media network.

    Thanks.

    1. I just ordered these tires for my 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback. I should’ve read these reviews first. I’m a little concerned about winter, I live in Chicago. Also, a little concerned about road noise. Goodyear however says in their website these aren’t too noisy?
