DO NOT BUY

Replaced all of my tyres with these on my Ford Territory. Since then, whenever it rains my car has less traction than the bald tyres they replaced. Much like one of these other reviews, I have gone sideways trying to go around a roundabout at 20Km/h. Driving on ice is legitimately easier than these in wet conditions.

Outside of driving in wet conditions, these tyres are nothing special. I dont have any of the road noise issues or anything but then again I have had them for about two months.

I am currently in contact with Mycar to get them replaced. Between this experience and the online reviews I have read, I am never going to buy a Goodyear product again and would advice you all of the same. Show details

Got 60,000kms out of them on my partner's Honda Civic, but very noisy in the end

Rotated every 10,000kms, never had any drama with the tyres. Very good tread life but VERY NOISY on the road when the approaching the wear indicator. When I say noisy I mean VERY NOISY!!! Show details

What a disaster of a product!!!!!

Got two of these put on the front because they were on special, never tried Goodyear before and will never try again. Around town was fine, when I hit 100km/h on open roads the whole car shook violently. It was not shaking from bad balancing or alignment is was bouncing up and down. I've never felt anything like this before, so bad we got home and phoned the store and they said to come straight back. They put some Maxxis on and the problem was gone. It was like the Goodyear weren't round resulting in the bouncing. Never again Good Year!  Show details

Dangerous in wet and dry conditions

Bought 4 of these for about 250$. Have felt the car lose traction on dry conditions twice, and my wife has had the car go into a full skid while driving in the rain (at 20kmph going through a roundabout). Cannot overstate how dangerous these tyres are, despite the cheap price tag. Show details
