The only experience I've had with Goodyears have been terrible (the goodyear eagle), but that's the only tire they had at Discount Tire and the tread pattern looks decent. It's a quiet ride so far, but when I turn, there is a strange thunka-thunka sound. Like the engineers didn't account for a car's ability to turn . paid $314 total, no alignment, no roadhazard. opinions? i've got a week or so to test them out. if i don't like them, i'd probably go with the yokohama YZ420 or kumho solus kh16's.
