Hey guys, I'm going to be getting some new rubber coming up before winter. Well, my wife and I have decided that I will be going with an all season tire. Now, of course I want to get the best performing tire that I can get while it still being a all season rated tire. I currently have Fuszion ZR-i's on it right now. So, I'm thinking anything will be an upgrade.
I had to replace the tires on my Spec-V when I owned it. I went from the original Continental Conti-Sport Contacts to the Sumitomo HTR+'s. They were a decent tire but compared to the Conti's they definitely didn't handle as well. Great in the snow though.
I try and stay true to the Goodyear brand because my grandfather worked in one of their plants for 40 years and gets great rebate coupons for them. So, I've been looking at the Goodyear Eagle GT. They look like a great tire at a really good price.
Has anyone used these on a DSM? Are they any good? If you've used the Conti's and the GT's how would they compare with each other?
Here's the info on them:
From Tire Rack:
The Eagle GT is Goodyear's Ultra High Performance All-Season tire developed for the drivers of sports cars, coupes and sedans looking for style, handling and all-season capabilities. The Eagle GT is designed to combine an eye-catching tread pattern that delivers in dry and wet conditions, along with all-season versatility, even in light snow.
The Eagle GT features an all-season tread compound molded into a dual-zone asymmetric tread design. The outboard high-performance zone features large independent shoulder and intermediate tread blocks to enhance steering response and provide predictable handling, along with sweeping Aquachute tread grooves that help evacuate water to enhance wet traction. The inboard all-season zone features a continuous rib flanked by dual circumferential grooves to help evacuate water and the inboard shoulder blocks feature Tredlock sipes to blend stability on the road with traction in snow. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon to combine uniform ride quality with high-speed capability, along with a polyester cord casing.
