dunno, maybe need to check on, on the long run....
One major issue with the Goodyear Eagles is with tyre wear and loss of grip over a period of time. On my OHC I had Eagle Venturas which had lost the grip level progressively and I had to change them at 15K (the tread was still there so I guess it is something to do with the tyre compound or the weather here).

Don't think the yokos should have that problem... only time can tell....

my friend has the same yokos on an automatic city 1.5 for the past year and a half....he sure has no problems....

the main fact of tire wear from the eagles and also gto's experience with them prompted me not to go for eagle's
