As the only component of your car that touches the road, tyres have a huge impact on performance, safety and how your car feels to drive. A tyre’s job is to ensure traction and manoeuvrability at all times.
Did you know? A Goodyear tyre tread is highly engineered to deliver excellent grip, performance and safety in a range of conditions. Advanced tyre compounds are engineered on the molecular level to perform on a range of vehicles, while being efficient and durable.
Investing in a high-quality set of tyres is a key consideration for drivers. Here are the key aspects to ensuring that you’re getting the most out of your tyres:
There are three main types of tyres:
Summer tyres are most commonly used in the UK, and are recommended for temperatures of 7°C and above.
All-season tyres deliver grip all year round and offer the best of both between a winter and summer tyre. These tyres are the best option for many drivers in the UK, as the climate is often very wet and icy in winter.
Winter tyres are used less frequently in the UK. Designed for places that receive heavy snowfall, the tread blocks remain flexible at extremely low temperatures and claw snow to provide excellent traction.
Goodyear is working on a number of key innovations that will help drive the industry forward, from intelligent and airless tyres, to the commitment to producing a tyre with 100% renewable and recyclable material by 2030. Last year, Goodyear developed tyres for the futuristic Lancia Pu+Ra HPE concept vehicle. This partnership offered a glimps into the future of electric mobility and Goodyear is committed to contributing to a net-zero future.
Goodyear’s current tyre range is optimised for EVs and designed to give all passenger vehicles optimal performance and efficiency. Goodyear has developed tyre ranges that are packed with the latest technology for optimal performance across EV and ICE (internal combustion engine) vehicles, simplifying the choice for your vehicle.
