Given 77% while driving a Toyota Yaris (175/65 R14 T) on mostly town for 40,000 average miles
Reasonable tire with higher than normal road noise but good durability. Lasted 45k on Toyota Yaris.

Given 74% while driving a Opel Corsa C (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 40,000 average miles
Very good tire when it came to lasting. I bought a new opel corsa in year 2000 with these tires, and have bought 3 sets since then. They are noisy however, but the fact they last forever made me buy them again.
Overall handling and performance was fairly good as well.

Given 76% while driving a Land Rover Freelander 2 (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 55,000 spirited miles
These tires were fitted to a Land Rover Freelander 2 when the OEM tires needed replacement. The front tires suffered from poor wheel alignment and needed replacing after 32000 km. The rears lasted much longer and with wheel rotation, they are now getting close to needing to be replaced after 55000 km.
The mix of driving is 20% city and 80% country driving with about 5% of the overall distance on well maintained gravel roads.
The small sipes catch stones which stay in the tread for quite some distance, although in comparison to the OEM Continental Crosscontact UHP, they are very similar.
The tires were comfortable and handle well, with the only exception that on wet, slippery gravel roads the performance was below that of the original tires.
A good, quiet tire well suited for highway, city or good unsealed roads.

Given 100% while driving a Chrysler voyager (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 40,000 average miles
I have had 3 sets of Goodyear GT2 tires under my Chrysler Voyager and I can say they are excellent. Each set lasted 40,000 miles they are very reliable have driven around Europe in the summer when temperatures on the tarmac were 65 degrees and air temp. 40 degrees with a full load in the car. These tires have never let me down these journeys have been made numerous times driving for 24 hours with a small breaks covering 5,000 miles in 2 weeks. Good grip in the wet what else can I say apart from GREAT TYRES! Only negative is that after 30,000 miles they become a little hard and slippery on the wet.

Given 44% while driving a Toyota Corolla (175/65 R14 T) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
Positive: Very little if any visible wear in the year I kept these tires on my corrola. Not too bad in snow surprisingly...

Negative: Very loud tire which OK in the dry was lethal in the wet hence me binning them way before their time.

Overall very disappointing tire from Goodyear - the year they were on my car was not a Goodyear!

Stuck some conti premium contact 2 on and the car now feels planted in any condition and is much quieter.

Given 66% while driving a Ford Fiesta (155/70 R13 T) on a combination of roads for 12,000 average miles
These tires were on our Fiesta when we bought it over 2 years ago. I suspect they've been on the car for a long time, as they are quite hard and have minute cracks in the rubber all over the surface of the tire and in between the tread blocks. Consequently, these have been shocking when the roads are anything other than bone-dry! In wet conditions, even the mildest corner or roundabout results in severe understeer, following immediately by oversteer! This isn't being driven at speed either. In the dry I have no complaints, and I will say these tires have lasted seemingly forever. However, I've managed to wear out the fronts so at last I can justify changing at least two of them! I would not buy them again - there are plenty of significantly better tires out there for the same or less money.

Given 64% while driving a Citro├źn berlingo (175/70 R14 T) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
I've nearly always had Goodyear tires on my cars as they wear well. And sit nice and square on the road, with hardly any feathering at the front. They were rubbish in the snow last year when nearly new. And this year, after another 8000 miles, I've been house bound as I couldn't get my car out of the drive and back again in the snow. I've now bought new Avon ZT5's, which have been brilliant in the bad weather.

Given 80% while driving a Toyota Yaris (175/65 R14 T) on a combination of roads for 70,000 spirited miles
These came on my Toyota Yaris and I have done 79k (have since shifted use to the Duragrip)

Great grip in dry and wet - snow, obviously a little more iffy but was only stuck once and that was at about 6 inches depth.

Road feedback is not so good but possibly due to the lack of feedback in the Yaris. Overall, Great tires but I would get the Duragrips if you are buying a Goodyear.

Given 60% while driving a Renault Clio 1.8 16v (175/65 R14) on a combination of roads for 18,000 average miles
I've had these tires for almost 5 years and I have driven 18000miles with them. At first the tires were good on dry (in air temperature up to 40C) and wet roads.
Visible wear started to appear after 15000miles, cracks are visible on the entire surface and the rear tires started to make noises.
I do not recommend driving in winter with these tires. Control of the vehicle is very hard on slush and stopping distace doubles or even triples. On 2-3cm of snow the car is unable to stop.

Lovely tires that were comfortable and instantly offfered good grip compared to previous budget tires. they grip really well in the dry and wet and have lasted quite well and still going strong. Highly Recommended for a smaller car.
