Goodyear's Excellence tire is an original equipment model typically found on European performance sedans or sports cars. It offers a mix of decent speed rating, comfort and handling. It is very quiet and provides a comfortable ride while offering an overlay central tread pattern that gives good traction in dry conditions and good braking safety in wet conditions. It has circumferential grooves to evacuate water, and the treads wear evenly to prolong the life of the tire. This is a higher-end model.
