All-season tires are becoming more and more popular: Every year more and more automakers equip their cars with all-season tires as standard, whether they are sedans or crossovers. But are they good enough to replace their summer and winter “friends”?
Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season is created for cars with powerful engines. The presented tire model is endowed with well-developed technical and operational characteristics that allow the driver to fully control the movement of the car on different surfaces and in any weather. Rubber, due to its high-speed index, is characterized by an increased coefficient of adhesion, traction properties, especially on wet and slippery roads, guarantees confident and safe movement and control
- Good grip on dry and wet surfaces.
- Responsive steering.
- Good warranty.
- The traction in the winter could be better.
- Little noise is heard at high speeds.
The innovative Active CornerGrip Technology, used in the development of rubber, provides it with agility, confident handling, and polished feedback for complete driving safety. Good grip and braking, stability, and handling are based on an even distribution of pressure in the contact zone, which gives a tight tread to the road surface.
Strengthening the structural rigidity of the shoulder areas with an additional medial belt ensures improved handling in turns and when maneuvering, and provides a reduction in braking distance.
The manufacturer took care of ensuring maximum tire resistance to sudden temperature changes by creating a special compound with a complex of polymer compounds that form optimal elasticity in a different range of air temperatures. This not only guarantees a high level of tire performance, in particular grip and braking but also provides resistance to pattern abrasion.
Driving on dry, wet, and snowy roads
Goodyear’s proprietary TripleTred technology features a distinctive directional tread pattern with three different zones for increased traction in all weather conditions: on dry, wet, and snowy surfaces.
Special zones were named according to weather conditions: Water Zone, Dry Zone, and Ice Zone. Each of them has its own purpose. So, Ice Zone provides traction on icy and snowy roads. It is a combination of winter rubber with fiberglass and volcanic sand.
The Water Zone has been enhanced with silica to provide extended durability and maximum traction in wet conditions. This area drains water out of the tire tread. Finally, Dry Zone is specially formulated to provide high performance and confident stability when maneuvering on dry surfaces.
The tires have full protection against aqua and slashplaining, which is formed due to the efficient operation of the drainage system with a developed network of longitudinal-transverse channels and sipes. Therefore, you do not have to worry about the safety of driving on wet roads.
Is it comfortable?
The ComforTred tire features a symmetrical tread pattern on the outside, which includes a system of closely spaced blocks for a smooth, quiet, and comfortable ride. The absorbent layer of rubber under the tread reduces vibrations and shocks from bumps and other road surface roughness. Fuel Max technology also includes a special tread pattern and depth that helps reduce fuel consumption.
Introduced and first tested in 2013, Goodyear’s Eagle Sport All-Season all-weather rubber was designed to provide maximum climatic adaptation and ride stability on all types of surfaces encountered over 4 seasons.
Many drivers commented that the tires handled well even in heavy snow. On the wet road and in the snow, the tires behave perfectly according to the drivers, they are soft but tenacious – there are no drifts even at high speed. Many drivers, when deciding to buy the first all-season tires, preferred this particular model.
