    I've been using these tires for years. It seems like I'm always burning through them. And the second I hit any sort of pothole, I get a leak somewhere. I don't beat on them, I just drive back and forth to work. My company does business with Goodyear, so its been a factor with me buying their tires.

    Anyone have a better recommendation for a 215/45R18 in the same pricerange? I do not want dry traction tires either.

    Look into the Continental Extreme Contact DWS. Little more expensive than those Goodyear's but a much better tire.

    I can believe this as I had bought a used set of wheels; 3 were Pirellis and 1 was Goodyear Eagles. The Goodyear had the least amount of tread left and IIRC the guy I bought them from said that one was newer than the other 3....

    I just noticed with mine that they don't grip like AA rated tires, even though thats what they're supposed to be. I really enjoyed the Kumhos and Yokohama AA rated tires I had, but these things suck compared to those two.

    I've never tried Continentals, so I can't speak to any comparisons between them and Kumhos.

    The Continentals are generally a more quieter tire and a more comfortable ride. Same with Michelins...
