The Road Hugger GT Eco is an all-season tire intended primarily for sedans and compact cars. It is available in 15, 16 and 17 inches.

Road Hugger GT Eco tires have four large circumferential grooves and crossing grooves to help prevent hydroplaning, an optimized contact patch to maintain constant road contact and full depth sides to improve all-season traction. New tires also come with a 60,000-mile warranty. Some vehicles that the Road Hugger tires are designed to fit are the Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic, Hyundai Accent, Kia Spectra, Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry and Corolla, and the VW Golf and Jetta.
