I don't think the treadwear on the Goodyear Eagle RS-A have the longest life... But there good all season performance tires! The tires handle well and I have been pleased with performance tho! But I haven't had them in the winter!

I'm due for new meats soon. Was thinking about Pilots, but haven't decided. Certainly not going to go with RSA'* again. Wet traction is not very good, and they absolutely suck in snow.

They weren't very good in dry conditions either

RSAs are good for dry warm weather suck in rain and snow and are noisy on the corners, nevermind that treadwear sucks too

.An excellent choice. Lots of bang for the buck.

I may go with these when it is time to replace the tires
