PM'S TIRE TEST: BIGGER IS BETTER

Popular Mechanics tested eight sets of Goodyear tires. Items tested included: coast-down (rolling resistance); quarter-mile acceleration; vehicle handling; braking; skid resistance (steady-state traction); and performance on a half-mile road course. Testing included dry and wet conditions. Significant differences in the performance of the eight tires were found. Results for each tire are reported individually. In conclusion, Goodyear's P205/70R14 Eagle GT was considered the finest passenger car tire of those tested.
