Tires Changed From Silverstone to Goodyear

Goodyear Ducaro GA Tires2 weeks ago, I decided to change all the tires to my utility vehicle (the original wheels came with Silverstone’s Powerblitz series). This is my 2nd tires change and I opted for Goodyear’s Duraco GA series. I have always been a fan of Goodyear’s tires since the days of my sedan. On my sedan, I used to have Goodyear’s Eagle GA Plus but unfortunately, for reasons unknown to me, Goodyear stopped production of these magnificant tires.

Pricewise, the Silverstone tires are relatively cheaper than those of Goodyear’s but after using the Ducaro GA, I have had no regrets paying the extra dollars. Here are the comparisons between the 2 brands (yours truly’s personal experience).

The comparisons:

  1. Noise Level – the Ducaro GA is far more quieter compared to the Powerblitz
  2. Road Grip – Somehow, I felt that the Ducaro GA has a better grip compared to the PowerBlitz as I was able to take corners at higher speed
  3. Softness – I don’t know how to describe this attribute but I used softness. When going over potholes, the PowerBlitz has a hard crash-type of feeling whereas the impact of running over a pothole on the Duraco GA is much lesser. The Ducaro GA seems to soften the impact which makes driving more enjoyable.
  4. Price – The Goodyear is retailed at a higher price :(
