Now, wait a sec. I think the general concensus is that Eagle
GAs suck real bad. But A4Q's don't come with GAs. They come
with RS-As (for the most part). They're decent... nothing
spectacular, but as far as all-seasons go, they don't really
Eagle GAs are probably the single most common original equipment
tire out there. A huge corporate discount is a big part of
the story, but not all. The GAs are designed to accomplish
two things only: first, ultra-low rolling resistance (hence
better EPA numbers), and second, ultra-low noise. At these,
the tire excels. At everything else a tire does, they suck.
