Need to replace the Michelin Symetry tires
225-60r-16 on my car. Have used Michelin X-One in the past w/great results. However, the set is $150. more than Goodyear Eagle LS.

Anyone have any experience with the
Goodyear Eagle LS?

The Eagles will not last nearly as long. If $150 is all the difference, get the X-ones. They will more than pay for themselves.

Goodyear tires are terrible in wet weather and wear out superquick. Go to TireRack to review all tires in your size. They're very informative and list prices, dry traction, wet traction, tread wear, etc.etc. You may want to consider the ECSTA Supra 712 or Sumitomo HTR ZII if you need high performance tires. These two tires (275 x 40 x 17) sell for $113.00 and $127.00 respectively for my car. They are probably cheaper for your car tire sizes.

Michelins have a softer side wall which will give them a better ride, But if your an agressive driver you would want to go with the goodyears because they are a little stiffer and you will not roll the side wall over as easy. As for tread wear, I have not had any problems with the Eagles wearing out fast.

Goodyears or Michelins are much better than the Sumitomos or the like. Also, I too have never had quick wear out problems with Goodyears and my Eagle HPs handle very well in the wet.
