I am curious to hear what sizes will be available for these new tires, and what ratings they will have for wear, traction, and temperature.

Yes a Tire size chart would be excellent way to start off this thread!

I have a 2014 Mustang GT. It came with Goodyear Eagle F1 tires as OEM. I assume the F1's are strictly summer performance tire so would the new Eagle Sport All-Season tire be a better choice for year-around driving in Kansas?

I'm also looking for a tire that works in a wide range of temperatures. In Eastern Colorado we go from below zero to above one hundred. I drive a lot of dirt roads too.

What is the purpose of this thread? Plenty of questions from MF members, but no reply from the blimp.

The Eagle Sport All-Season has an asymmetric tread pattern and is based on the summer tire. Additionally, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season features a Dry Handling Zone on the outside shoulder for enhanced handling and grip, and an All-Season Zone on the inside shoulder for increased water evacuation. Depending on tire size needed, these would likely be good choices for year-round driving in Kansas.

Depending on your vehicle, the Eagle Sport All-Season or the Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season might be worth a look. Both have excellent wet and dry traction, and are good in light snow. However, you also need to decide if you face severe winter weather, which could lead you to choosing a set of winter tires as a complement to the other tires.

A tire that many are using for autocross competition comes from one of Goodyear’s other brands – Dunlop. The Dunlop Direzza Z2 is a choice of many in autocrossing, and it’s available in several sizes. And with track-type competition, we recommend taking off the autocross tires when you leave the track – earmarking a set for autocrossing and a set for street use.

Goodyear offers the Eagle Sport All-Season in these sizes, but in a W speed rating – not a Z. In the Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season, however, we have those sizes in a Z speed rating.

The new Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season has a UTQG rating of 580/A/A and a 50,000-mile tread wear limited warranty. For a list of sizes available in the Eagle Sport All-Season, along with UTQG ratings: Visit www.goodyear.com, select “Tires & Offers, select “Browse all Tires,” select “Eagle Tires,” select “Browse all Eagle Tires,” and then choose the Eagle Sport All-Season.
