Goodyear has a long history of producing industry-leading all-season tyres. The brand invented the all-season tire in 1985, with the first iteration of the Goodyear Vector family. Since then, Goodyear has refined the recipe for developing a tire that performs all year long, whether in sun, rain or snow. In recent years, Goodyear has won more all-season tire tests than any other brand.
Laurent Colantonio, Regional Technology Director EMEA, Goodyear: "We're proud that the testers at Auto Bild have awarded Goodyear with their all-season tyre manufacturer of the year award for a second time running. This acknowledgement underlines the development that we have invested in the Vector portfolio, resulting in the current iteration, Vector Seasons Gen-3, which is a test winner in its own right. We will continue to develop all-season technology and remain the industry leader for this growing segment of the tire market."
