Eagle GT is Goodyear’s Latest High-Performance Tire
Continuing the momentum of new product development, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has announced another in a line of high-performance tires, the Eagle GT, is now available the thousands of locations in the Goodyear retail network.
The Eagle GT begins availability in July with the initial 24 sizes, representing 70 percent of the volume potential in this segment. Overall, the line has now 19 more sizes available since September, creating a 43-size lineup, ranging from 15- to 22-inch wheel diameters to fit a wide range of high-performance vehicles.
Design features include an aggressive dual zone asymmetric tread with an outboard High Performance Zone to aid grip and responsive handling, and an All Season Zone on the inboard side for all-season traction. Goodyear’s TredLock™ Technology microgrooves in the All Season Zone help provide all-season traction during normal driving, but lock together in handling maneuvers to provide a solid foundation for cornering.
“The sidewall styling and tread pattern are progressive and youth-influenced,” said Joey Viselli, Goodyear brand director. “These consumers, particularly younger performance drivers, want a tire with styling and handling, yet they drive their cars all year long, so all-season capability is a must.”
The new Eagle GT completes the Goodyear performance tire lineup, offering an all-season high-performance Eagle, at an attractive price and complementing the brand’s three premium ultra-high performance offerings: the Eagle F1 GS-D3; Eagle F1 All-Season; and Eagle F1 Asymmetric.
