Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 range keeps growing to meet the evolution of driver’s needs

14 additional sizes added to one of the widest all season offers in the market

Brussels, July 2017 – As a result of 40 years of research, development and innovation in all-season tires, Goodyear’s recently launched Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 keeps collecting awards[1] and continues to expand its size range.

Goodyear has introduced 14 new sizes of the Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 to meet the evolution of the market – with the all-season segment growing fastest in the European market[2], as drivers increasingly seek reliable tires that offer great performance and peace of mind in different weather conditions throughout the year.

The line extension is mainly focused on 17 and 18nch tires and thanks to the introduction of new sizes with W and Y speed index, more powerful cars can also be fitted with Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 tires, following the evolution of the car parc.

Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 will be expanded with the following 14 new sizes with the majority already available and the others to be introduced by the end of the year:
