Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company Introduces its Newest Performer, the Eagle Sport All-Season
Jun 10 13
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has introduced its newest performer, the Eagle Sport All-Season. Initial sizes of the new Eagle tire are available at thousands of retail outlets, with a full lineup of 47 sizes offered by the end of 2013. The full range of tire sizes will allow Goodyear to offer Eagle Sport All-Season fitments for everything from Honda Accord to Audi A4 and Ford Mustang vehicles. The Eagle Sport All-Season is designed for responsiveness, all-season traction, and outstanding wet and dry handling with performance drivers in mind. An asymmetric tread pattern, which includes angled tread block edges, helps provide responsive handling and grip while reducing road noise and promoting even wear. Another key feature of the new tire is its ability to maintain a large tread surface area - its footprint on the road surface - even at light loads. This helps provide consistent performance across a wide range of vehicles. Additionally, the new tire offers these technical features: outstanding wet and dry performance with enhanced grip in ice and snow from an innovative tread compound. Confident grip as the tire wears as a result of numerous full-depth tread sipes. Enhanced wheel protection against accidental curb damage from its rim protector. The Eagle Sport All-Season carries a 50,000-mile/80,000-kilometer tread life limited warranty, is tunable for original equipment applications, carries V- and W-speed ratings, and the 47 replacement sizes will cover most of the popular cars on the road.
