Goodyear Eagle GT are high-performance tires built for all seasons. The tread features separate zones for specialized purposes. The High-Performance Zone on the outside half of the tire works to provide strong handling and grip in dry conditions. The All-Season Zone is designed differently to help provide enhanced traction on wet and snow-covered roads. This is accomplished with TredLock Technology, large blocks with microgrooves that bite together for enhanced wet traction and lock together completely on turns for a stronger grip. Two grooves run the circumference of the tire to evacuate water and allow the tread to contact the pavement more quickly. A rim protector is also designed in to protect the wheels in case of accidental collision with the curb.
