The Goodyear Eagle RS-A 235/50-18 tires that came with my 2006 Impala SS are excellent tires. The handle well in both wet and dry conditions and the wear is quite acceptable. I have no complaints whatsoever about them.

I have Gooodyear on my 08 LTZ. At 6000iles, no unusual wear. I keep them inflated, and watch folr unusual wear. I have original Goodyears on my 03 Buick Le Sabre. At 49000 miles I will be replacing them next spring. No unusual wear. My 00 Impala had Goodyears and were no problem when I sold it at about 40000 miles. I have no problems with Goodyear. Currious that the person in post#1 knows that all 200 plus units have erosion of the shoulders? I wonder how this will create a bad ride? What is an acute blow out? Doesn't sound plausable to me.

I know this because I'm seeing it, every working day. At the moment, we have about 30 LSs idle, simply bedcause of this situation. (mileage is 15/30 K)
We have about 250/300 07/08 LS Impalas in our fleet.
I might mention however, I am just questioning the LS, the LT and LTZ are demonstrating no problems.
It creates a bad ride, for eventually it goes down, into, and through the steel belt.
An acute blow out, is where the tire essentially disintegrates, leaving little but the bead around the rim.
#53 of 69 06 LT Tires

I replaced my 06 Impala LT1 Tiires at 25k miles. The goodyear integrity tires are not the best. Wear was on outside of front tires. I rotated every 8k miles. They could of lasted a little longer but I like to be safe. Replacement tires seem to be wearing fine after 7k miles.

Tires on mine are really bad. I started complaining about the noise and a bounce/vibration within 2 months of purchase. Dealer said normal, nothing wrong. They started wearing and dealer said I needed a rotation. Rotated. Still wearing quickly, dealer said no alignment needed. Would not check balance or anything. Finally said I missed a rotation and that was what was wearing the tires. Two tire companies said the wear problem was due to alignment and that it had probably been misaligned since manufactured. Dealer still says it's my fault.

I know the latest thread is about the LS tires but I thought I'd give my opinion on the subject. My '06 SS has the GoodYear RS-A, 235/50-18 and I would give them a decent rating. They were much better than expected when new but now at 30K, the treadwear looks fine but they are really bad in wet weather. Sadly, this doesn't suprise me as I have had terrible luck with GoodYears. The set on my '02 Monte Carlo, I believe they were also RS-As, were terrible from day one. Two of them turned out to be defective (out of round) and were replaced. I suspected the remaining two were also out of round but they were "within specs" and weren't replaced. After those tires wore, I replaced them with Bridgestone Turanza LS-Hs and was very pleased. Aside from the money I'll spend, I'm looking forward to changing the tires currently on my car. If anyone out there has had some good luck with replacement for the SS' tires, please share.

I would recommend the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S's. They rank very highly on the Tire Rack site. I am going to consider them when it comes time for tire replacement although I must say I have not had any trouble with the Goodyear RS-A's which came stock on the car.

hey I am a new owner of an 06 impala SS and I am thinking about putting rims on the ride but concerned how they would effect the TPMS (tire pressure managment system). Any advice?
#59 of 69 Summer Tires for 2010 Impala
Dec 28, 2010 (4:30 pm)
I am looking to purchase summer-only tires and am looking for a good step up from stock.
I would like 40K miles from these with better handling while still maintaining a quiet comfortable ride. Tires need to perform well in rain.
Budget not beyond $250 ea.
