Goodyear Summer Tires

The three main tire models from Goodyear that you will be recommended to examine when choosing a tire for the summer are the Goodyear Eagle, Goodyear Excellence and Goodyear Efficient Grip. The Goodyear Eagle F1 GS D3, Eagle F1 GS-2 and Eagle F1 GS EMT are the three Goodyear summer tires that feature direction tread patterns. This translates to ultra performance and guaranteed high speeds. The Goodyear Eagle F1 GS D3 stands out more uniquely than the rest as it has no centre rib. Its grooves align smoothly and diagonally into the centre for maximum wet traction

Goodyear Winter Tires

Goodyear’s Winter tires are supplied under the Ultra Grip line. These tires are designed with tightly grouped sipes and unidirectional tread patterns. They all have broad mid-ribs except for the Goodyear Ultra Grip® Ice WRT which is designed for cars and minivans. It has two dimensional blades along its middle rib which make braking more effective on ice.

They also employ the patented 3D Tredlock technology on the tire’s shoulders that give flawless cornering capacity for a more confident driving experience. These features compare well with the Ultra Grip Winter model whose treads have multiple sharp biting edges and wider grooves that help to disperse snow for enhance traction in snowy terrains.

So maybe you are looking for that variety of tires that will do your car justice in any kind of weather be it rainy, snowy or hot weather. There is an endless sea of options for the all-season driver such as the Goodyear Fortera, Goodyear Assurance, Goodyear Wrangler, Goodyear Integrity and Goodyear Eagle LS series.

They combine features found in summer and winter tires for adaptable performance. Some Assurance tires for instance have a block tread pattern which provides reliable steering control on snowy and icy surfaces. They disperse water well and can thus also function as needed in the hot summer rain.

The Goodyear Assurance Comforted and Tripletred are however even more popular and covered because they have a rib-lug tread pattern that makes them capable of creating sufficient traction in similar snowy condition but they will still produce an extra boost in speed on dry highways.
