Over the past 5 years Goodyear has been ‘recommended’* in over 80% of European magazine tire tests. 

Brussels, August 2017 –  In 208 magazine tire tests, carried out by 37 European reputable automotive magazines – including ADAC, Auto Bild, Auto Bild Allrad, Auto Zeitung, Auto Express, Gute Fahrt, Auto Moto and ACE/GTÜ – Goodyear tires have been recommended* in more than 80% of their tests in the last 5 years. Goodyear ranked 1st in 43 of these tests.

Every time a new tire is designed and developed, Goodyear’s engineers test it against more than 50 performance criteria before it goes into production. This ensures that each new Goodyear tire meets the highest demands and ultimately leads to better driving experiences.

“We are very proud to be able to announce this great accomplishment. It highlights once again Goodyear’s commitment to continuously deliver stand-out performance when it comes to product excellence and innovation” says Martijn De Jonge, Brand Director Consumer PBU EMEA.
