1. Good price for a performance tyre. I like the looks of the tread pattern. Quiet and comfortable for bad roads with gentle driving (after the Yokohamas). Good wet grip.
2. Dry handling is worse, seems soggy, slurrs when you try and have some fun. Poor response to quick movements, I would say very poor (on my Subaru Impreza WRX).
Maybe the tyre wall on the Goodyear Eagle tyre is over-compliant. When fun driving - body roll seems worse, as does grip (in 5 to 10 deg C) and I reckon I have less acceleration now as well! Feels as though the car has been degraded. I don't think they don't suit the WRX and am overall disapointed, and would not have bought them if I'd known the effects they would have. Upping the pressure to 42PSI helps a little, but they may have to go.
