Goodyear has worked on its new rubber compound, the tyre’s weight and tread blocks to reduce the tyre’s rolling resistance without compromising safety.

• Inspired from the "FuelSaving Technology", the rubber compound uses new generation polymers that improve the tyre’s rolling resistance thus reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

• Traction resins are used to improve wet braking.
• Shorter braking distance on dry roads thanks to 3D sipes at the shoulders and the improved circumferential stiffness.

• The lower tyre weight and increased tread pattern lateral stiffness improves steering precision and road handling.

Better mileage
• Computer optimised cavity shape and tread stiffness, a higher sea/land ratio tread design (+4% compared with its predecessor) for a better mileage.

• The increased number of blocks and the optimised pitch sequence offer a smooth, quiet ride.
