Questions and Answers for the Goodyear Excellence

2017-02-07 - Hi, can anyone tell me if this is a directional tyre or not? I need one for a full size spare wheel, which should ideally NOT be directional.

The Goodyear Excellent is an asymmetric tyre.

BMW 730d (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 52,000 average miles
Have this on BMW 730d from April 2009 (I know somebody will classify me as mad). Run for app. 52000 miles, 95% on highways. App. speed 150 km/h (app 94 mph). We use this car rarely, but tires still with no breaks on sides like described in some reviews. Changed them for same new set bought through internet site. Will see how will they perform and last.

Given 71% while driving a BMW F11 M550d xDrive (245/40 R19 W) on mostly motorways for 9,000 average miles
These tyres came factory-fitted to a set of OEM rims. When I purchased them, they had already seen quite some miles and were in their third season. They had about 5,5 mm tread left. I was originally just interested in the rims but decided to give the tyres a chance as well. Let me also mention that these were the run-flat version of the Goodyear Excellence.

The tyres have impressed me. They are a bit noisy on rough asphalt like the one we usually have in Norway. But during a trip to Italy and on the Autobahn, noise was no issue. Dry grip is also fair. But when pushed, they will slip. As for wet performance; well I have had better tyres. They are quite OK but when going fast in heavy rain you notice that they will gradually loose contact. The good thing is that this happens gracefully so you do get some warnings.

All in all I can recommend the tyres if you are after all round performance and don't need tyres that excel under specific conditions.

Given 49% while driving a Land Rover Range Rover Sport (275/40 R20 W) on mostly motorways for 20,000 average miles
Tyre blew after about 20,000 miles and on inspection showed that the tyre had broken down and split around the inner rim.
For safety reasons have replaced with a set of Pirelli’s.

Given 70% while driving a BMW 520d Sport (245/40 R19 W) on mostly motorways for 5,000 average miles
Have had three of these tyres on the front of my BMW and all three have failed due to pothole damage.

Coincidence? I think not.
