Has anyone gone through winter snow driving in their OUTLOOK FWD with Goodyear Eagle RSA tires? If you did please tell how they did.

Yes they are. I've read the reviews from some tire retailers and its a mixed bag from consumers. This winter will tell in my XR FWD.

They are really for highway driving and I would say rain more then snow. I have high speed tires on my supercharged G/P and I did good in the Midwest snow storm we just got, It drove better with the traction control off then it did on.

I have AWD but can still vouch for the RSAs. I have 17760 miles on my Outlook and have rotated the tires every 6000 miles.
This past weekend the tires have driven in 5" of snow on Saturday and heavy rain downpours o n Monday on the highway. The tires performed very well on the highway despite the "rivers" of water flowing on it. No issue with hydroplaning or slippage. In the snow it did well enough with the AWD kicking in a few times. Usually from a stop and then turning.
I live in the Everett area north of Seattle. We went from 25 degrees on Friday night to 55 degrees today. Snow and then loads of rain.

scotted73,
The weather in your neck of the woods sounds rediculous! I've been watching the news and maybe you should get some orr's and a paddle for your OUTLOOK just to get around town! :) Are you anywhere near that 1400 year old tree that broke in half?

Luckily not near the old tree. Unfortunately I live in a convergence zone 20 miles north of Seattle which generates some crazy weather in itself.
The wet weather here really tests the traction abilities of tires.

I live in the midwest as well and we got about five inches of snow here. My FWD OUTLOOK did just fine in it. The traction control kicked in a few times and the GOODYEAR RSA'S did better than I would have thought. They are still pretty new yet though with only 7600 miles on them, the tread hardly even looks used. All in all it was still only 5" of snow and not a foot, I will be sure to test them then, well then again with that much snow I should probably just stay home and snow blow instead of riding around and looking to see what I can drive through. ;)

Very cool I am glad you had no problems, theres nothing more then worrying about if you are going to slip and slide in the snow.
