Goodyear Tyres Maintains Efficient Grip Compact
Posted on: 26-Jun-2013         Source: Daily Guide
GOODYEAR has renewed its summer passenger tyre offering with the introduction of the efficient grip performance and compact range.

The new efficient grip performance tyres, available in 39 sizes, deliver some of the highest performance and safety capabilities on the market today.

The compact, which is available in 26 sizes ranging from 13 to 15 inches, is specifically designed for smaller and city cars.

A feature of the new efficient grip compact is its strength in braking on wet roads, driven by multiple biting edges with extra large sipes.

The new efficient grip performance comes with advanced technology as well.

Among these is the company’s WearControl technology, which manages a balanced wear across the tyre, delivering a more optimized road grip and rolling resistance through-out the tire’s life.

An advanced CoolCushion Layer also ensures that heat is managed and reduced across the tyre’s surface area.

An optimized shoulder-block arrangement and extra-thin shoulder grooves deliver additional noise reduction.

“When we develop a tyre, we strive to deliver a product that’s not only right for the region it’s available in, but one that will continue to perform its best throughout its life,” commented Ersin Ozkan, Marketing Director, Goodyear Middle East and Africa.

“Technologies like our CoolCushion Layer are designed with regional hot weather conditions in mind and ensure safety and security.

As with previous Goodyear tyres, thorough tests were run on the efficient grip compact and performance by independent German specialists TÜV SÜD Automotive evaluating the different safety margins of the tires.

The tests found that the tyres not only performed above the specified speed index, but performed admirably under extreme hot weather conditions, making them ideal for the Middle East market.
