Goodyear Tire – The Highlights
In the 1960’s, the Goodyear technical team discovered a phenomenon that had yet to be explained: hydroplaning. Different demonstrations of this phenomenon attracted international attention and the Goodyear team was rewarded for their efforts. After completing multiple tests, Goodyear increased the number and approximation of sipes on the surface of the tire tread and they added ribs on the side to allow the water to disperse more easily.
In 1984, Goodyear consolidated its tire-related activity in Europe, the USA and Japan with the Japanese group Sumitomo. Later on in 1999, Sumitomo and The Goodyear Tire Rubber Company finalized a global partnership. Today Goodyear Tire forms part of the Goodyear Tire Group.
The Goodyear Tire Group works with many different original equipment manufacturers in Japan, Europe and across the Americas, more so than any other tire company. Some of the manufacturers that use Goodyear tires as original equipment on their vehicles are: Audi, Aston Martin, BMW, Honda, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, Renault, Toyota, Volkswagen and many others.
