When looking for all weather tires I had heard the good year eagles were the way to go so despite the high price tag I bought them anyway. I picked them up for my mazda3 right as the new York winter started. They had decent traction in the snow... but my new pirellis have much better traction. The eagles have very soft rubber so they are very quiet on the road, but I drive a lot of miles so these tires didn't last long at all! I was very disappointed and wound up having them for less than a year before they wore all the way to the metal bands. They also get flats pretty easy which is quite disappointing. All the other tires I've had take well with potholes and nails and such but these went flat twice.
