PHOENIX—Goodyear launched its Eagle Sport All-Season tire May 30 during a ride-n-drive event at the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Phoenix.
The Akron-based tire maker said the mid-tier high performance tire will sit below the Goodyear Eagle F1 asymmetrical all-season tire and will be replacing the Goodyear Eagle GT.
Goodyear introduced a new tread compound for the Eagle Sport All-Season tire, which comes with a 50,000-mile tread wear warranty.
Goodyear reported during its dealer meeting in January that the Eagle Sport All-Season will be available in June at Goodyear retail outlets, with a full line of 47 sizes available by year-end.
The new tire is designed for performance drivers seeking all-season traction, responsiveness and "outstanding" wet and dry handling, Goodyear said. Features include its asymmetric tread pattern, which the company said provides responsive handling and grip while reducing road noise and promoting even wear. The tire also maintains a large tread surface area even at light loads, providing consistent performance across a wide range of vehicles.
The Eagle Sport All-Season was primarily tested against the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval tire in a series of maneuvers at the Bondurant school.
