German magazine ‘Auto Bild’ named the Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 winner in its latest All Season tire test. According to the magazine, Goodyear’s All Season tire demonstrated the best driving performance in all weather conditions, especially in wet and snow conditions.

In wet conditions, Goodyear recorded an impressive braking performance compared to tested competitors. Driving at a speed of 100km/h the Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 stopped in just 41.6 meters, while its closest competitors needed at least 2 more meters.

When driving on a wet circle the Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 showed its wet grip capabilities, outperforming certain summer tires in that respect. 

In addition to top performance on wet, the Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 was among the best rated tires during the test on snow conditions. The German magazine praised the tire for its good performance on snow.

“We are delighted with the test result,” said Mike Rytokoski, Chief Marketing Officer Goodyear Europe. “It shows that we, as the inventor of the All Season tire, understand that consumers need a very well-balanced tire and have the know-how to create a tire that performs exceptionally in different driving conditions all year long.”
