These tires seemed OK when first installed. We run them in Canada during the summer months only. As the tires got worn they got extremely noisy to the point of distraction. We just had them rebalanced after winter storage and they run terrible, sound terrible and handle terrible. Estimate that they are about half life on tread wear, but we'll be scrapping them. By comparison our winter tires are much, much less noisy and handle much better. (read more)

I've got over 40,000 miles out of this set of tyres and there is still plenty of tread left. Not bad for a heavy powerful car. MPG is good with these tyres and the tracking perfect. (read more)

Brilliant durability! 42000 miles of my 'questionable' driving and im finally having to change them, although the front tires (which were the back) probably have a few k in them yet tbh.
The only reason i knock a star off for is the tyres tendancy to aquaplane. (read more)

Goodyear NCT5 standard fitment to a brand new VW GOlf Hatch in 2007. 40 months later they are being replaced at 77000km. Absolutly no problems with them in terms of handling, braking, wet weather driveability or in the dry. No doubt the manner in which I have driven has a lot to do with it too. I'm heading back to Goodyear for a new set, althought NCT5's aren't available any longer. (read more)

Had a full set put on my Boxster S about a year ago and felt very uneasy from the start! In the wet the back end felt very twitchy. I have now replaced the back with Avon ZZ3 and the difference is astonishing in the wet and dry and replacing the front soon. I know I won't get as many miles out of the Avon's but I would rather have the confidence in knowing I've got some decent grip below me. (read more)

Had these fitted for 20,000 miles so far. On current wear trend i expect they will just do 30,000 miles. Good grip wet or dry, they seem happy on my AWD car, no unexpected noise or feedback through the steering. A good all round tyre in my view. I understand that they arn't produced anymore? (read more)

My Skoda Octovia came with Goodyear Eagle NCT5 91H tyres when new, and now I've gone back to these Goodyear tyres and repalced all four at 56,000km. In the meantime the original front tyres only lasted 36,000 km and I replaced them with economy ones which didn't last as long. So the tyres on the back gave me 56K and there was still plenty of thread on them.
The grip is fine. I drive in rain and sleet on motorways and minor country roads. Surley long wearing tyres means the rubber is harder... (read more)

My Fusion came with Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 tyres on. I do a lot of motorway driving and don't push it in handling terms so perhaps I'm not typical. However, the front set lasted 47,000 miles and the rear set have now run through 62,000 miles and still have 3 mm of tread left. The Continental Contipremium Contacts that replaced the front set are down to 2 mm after only 15,000 miles so I know which ones I will choose in the future if I were paying!
Grip in snow, slush or ice is poor but a... (read more)

I fitted these thinking they would last 20000-30000 miles that's 30000-45000Kms. No such luck - I have just had to replace the rear tyres after less than 10000 miles and the fronts might last another couple of thousand. Poor wear characteristics or what! My car is also underpowered for its weight at 67 BHP ands 0-60 mph is 20 secs so I am not shredding them at all.
I won't be buying these again any time soon! (read more)

I got the tyres as standard on my Ford Focus. (205/50 17)
The tyres lasted 56000km of abuse, so it is hard wearing no doubt.
The dry grip is fine, but wet grip is questionable.
I agree with other reviewers that this tyre requires a lot of wheel balancing. (read more)

These tyres seem to have lasted well - I'm nearly up to 40K on them and the tread still has a little way to go.
However, I'm about to replace them anyway as my confidence in them is dropping rapidly. I'm no expert on tyres but the handling in wet or slushy conditions is terrible and rapidly getting worse.
In summary - long lasting, low wet performance. (read more)

This is the worst tire I have purchased in my life. The tire is pathetic and it took more than 120grams of weight when you balance the tire. After balancing it vibrated a lot after 60km/h. The Dealer Parimalam tyres, Erode, Tamilnadu, India refused to accept the fault and refused to change it.
After driven 3000Kms, I have changed to MICHELIN Energy MVX8 now. It took only 20grams of balance weight and ride is smooth now. No more vibrations in the steering wheel.

Average life, about 32,000km (has had regular wheel alignment checks and regular rotation, I am an automotive mechanic) but I agree with other reviews re, tyre balance and wet handling. Tyres have needed rebalancing at regular intervals. Grip is OK dry but give zero confidence when driving in wet conditions. Tread depth is now averaging 2.5 mm and wet grip is even worse. I am changing them before they get to the minimum legal tread depth of 1.6mm, would hate to think how they would perform... (read more)

Got a reasonable price for 4 eagle NCT 5 tyres fitted to the car. The wife normaly drives it. I drive it when we are towing the caravan. First time out it was raining and towing the caravan, the tyres did nothing but slip and had hardly any grip. Not much better when dry. Without the caravan they are a bit better but in the wet they give you no confidence at all and if you run a manhole cover you can feel the front slide.

I put these on as I wanted balance between grip and longevity and a few people said these sit between Pirelli and Michelin.
I have had a nightmare getting them balanced and indeed the car is going back in tomorrow for another go. I had the back step out on me unexpectedly in the wet the other day as I took a corner at what I would say is a normal speed, over a brow. The lift in weight seemed to allow the Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 tyre to give up on me. Held it ok but with a bus coming could... (read more)

Done about 16,000 miles on a Mercedes C180K saloon - these Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 tyres came with the car. They seem a very hard wearing and hard compound and this is ok in the dry. In the wet / ice / snow they are terrible and lose grip very quickly on corners (I've driven to police Class 1 standard so I'm pretty sure it's not just me!). I came on this site looking for advice on alternatives, and thought I'd share my experiences. (read more)

These Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 tyres were great when new. Quiet and comfortable with reasonable grip, though handling was not as sharp as my old Firestone Firehawks. HOWEVER, there must be something wrong with these NCT 5s. I've had these tyres for several years and it's about time to replace them. Over the years, I've had to get the tyres re-balanced about every 4-6 months or 2000-3000 kms. These darned things have cost me a fortune in wheel balancing over their life and I'm not buying another... (read more)

Have these goodyear eagle nct tyres on a Subaru Forester, did 40K+ on the first set, in snow, on gravel, highways, motorways and around town (typical New Zealand conditions) also towing a boat long distances.... wet and dry grip have both been exceptional (4wd may help with this) am now on my second set.

The Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 has long Tyre Life in average to dry conditions. 55 000km in South Africa. Good roadholding and attractively priced in a rare size. Poor performance on unsurfaced roads with a guaranteed flat should you venture out more than 10 kms at a time on dirt roads. Good overall on-road tyre for medium to high speed SUV travel. (read more)

The majority of tyres perform well for most drivers. This is no exception. A decent tyre in all respects. Most people in a 'blind driving' couldn't tell one tyre from another. This is a good balance of tyre life, wet grip, dry grip, noise level, and build strength that will be fine for the majority of drivers. (read more)

If you live in a dry country, or avoid driving in the wet, this tyre will give exceptional wear and be fairly comfortable (both absorbing pot hole noise and being quite). But I live north England where it doesn't rain it pours! Even without an enthusiastic driving style the wet weather grip gives cause for concern and this affects both cornering (or lack of!) and braking. Due to the tyres weakness in the wet I cannot recommend it. (read more)

Although the grip and handling in the dry seem ok its another story in wet or even damp conditions.
I have these tyres as a standard fit to a Diahatsu Sirion 1.3 so the tyres handling the power should not be a problem but in the wet the tyres will spin even in 3rd gear. Pulling away from a junction can be quite heart stopping because even if there was plenty of distance between myself and the approaching vehicle by the time the tyres actually find purchase and you have forward momentum the...

In general a tyre to avoid if you like to drive progressively. OK for general round town or straight motorway driving, or if you are a slow driver.

I have had NCT tyres for twelve years, from the NCT3's to the current NCT5's, and I have been happy with them, grippy in the dry and the wet. But this latest generation of eco NCT5's are a different case, I have noticed from new they are not as grippy in the dry and more noticeably in the wet, probably ok for motorway driving, but not for me as I live in the country with windy roads. Also there is an increased road noise. These tyres are said to reduce fuel consumption, but not for me, just... (read more)

The Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 are fitted to a Toyota estate car - to me road noise is more important than ultimate grip. I don't drive fast ! so the 'grip' seems like any other tyre . They are quiet :-), previously had Michelin Energy :-( and some Wingo cheapies - good wear and cracking value for £'s, but noisy :-0. Made up with these Goodyears though. This could change as they age though. Dealers always recommend whichever tyre they get best % on - bear this in mind folks!! (read more)
