Goodyears are famous for being a softer compound that wears out very quickly. At least every set I've ever had were like that.

1st Mustang - 215/60-R14 Eagle GTs (80% tread gone after 25K miles)
'85 Nissan 4x4 - 33x12.50 Wrangler ATs (60% tread gone after 3 years/20,000-ish miles)
'97 Dodge Ram 4x4 - 265/75-R16 Wrangler RT-S (90% tread gone after 29,000 miles - stock tires supposedly 40,000 mile tires)
'96 Cavalier Z-24 - 215/55-R16 Eagle LSs (lasted about 24,000 - supposedly 40,000 mile tires)
'01 Grand Prix GT - 215/55-R16 Eagle LSs (lasted about 26,000 - ditto above)

On my Mustang and '85 Nissan 4x4, I actually purchased those tires new and watched them wear out. The other cars had come with the tires and those were approximate mileage on the odometers when I replaced them with something that lasted a LOT longer.

I'm not really a big fan of Goodyears anymore - good-lookin' tires, but overpriced and too soft for any longevity.

i'm not going with good year tires anymore either! for our daily drivers i'm going with warranty tires only. on the mach 1, i'm going with some 15k warranty nitto 555 cuz it'll take forever to put that many miles on her.

Just reading this reminded me of the Goodyears I had on my 84 Buick T-type( my first and last time I bought a car from the General)

I used to swear that on a hot day I was leaving twin rubber marks down the road just at highway speed....I think they were Radial TAs and may have lasted about 40K....not miles but KM so about 22k miles or so.

All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy
