It will make a difference if you drive really fast, but I think the answer is "NO". Where are you buying from?

I'm glad you like the Eagle GTs. I found they lost their good traction after about 5,000 miles. I swapped to Falkens, so far so good.
EDIT;; that info was on another ride not the G6, I do plan to put the Falkens on the G6 in a month.

Yokohamas here and very happy....
Hell, I'll comment on those too.
I like the Yoks, that was my perfered tire till I got 17" rims and the price went up into the $140 range. Traction stayed steady the whole life of the tire. Tread wear was moderate.
Back to the GoodYears; The Wally World version of low priced Eagles sucked butt water! The worse tire I ever owned.:mad: I drove moderately with a mix of city and highway and theystill sucked butt water.:mad::mad:

My bad, WalMart sells a G/Y tire by the name "American Eagle" or they used to.. That tire is only at WalMart and it is that tire that sucks so bad.

I owned several sets of the Eagle GTs and they're ok.
