Goodyear Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat review
What is it?
The Goodyear Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat is a grand touring all season tire designed for sedans and crossovers. The Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat served as the original equipment tire for certain model BMW 5-series and X3 vehicles.
Strengths and weaknesses?
The good news is that the performance of the standard Goodyear Eagle LS-2 was largely maintained with this Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat iteration.
The bad news is that performance was marginal to begin with.
Like the standard Eagle LS-2, the Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat provides adequate dry condition performance, but falls short across most other evaluative metrics.
Wet condition capabilities are adequate, but still subpar as compared to current grand touring all season category leaders.
With abundant caution, the Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat will get you through some light snow, but it does not maintain competence in heavy snow and ice.
Comfort characteristics are below average, and treadlife is okay at best.
Overall the Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat has far more deficiencies than high points.
How does the Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat compare?
The Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat is the second-most common grand touring all season run-flat tire. Only the Continental ContiProContact SSR has been more widely used. However, this apparent popularity is a function of its original equipment use, not user preference or choice.
Users rank the Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat seventh out of seven grand touring all season run flat tires.
Bottom line: we think that there are clear advantages to looking beyond the Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat (see below).
Anything else to know?
Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat user reports of structural integrity issues and sidewall bubbling are not particularly infrequent.
We cannot identify any good reason to stick with this OE tire.
The Bridgestone Driveguard is the current grand touring all season run flat standard, and it's far more affordable than the Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat.
Willing to forego run-flat technology? Consider the excellent Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology.
