Goodyear announces that the award winning[1] Ultra-High Performance Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 tire, equipped with Goodyear’s latest SealTech technology, has been accredited by VW for original equipment fitment on the new Arteon.

SealTech is Goodyear’s latest extended mobility solution, based on a post-cure sealant technology. SealTech seals punctures of up to 5mm diameter in the tread area of the tire, providing an excellent and balanced driving performance. The SealTech marking will be visible on the sidewall of the tire.

We are proud to broaden our portfolio and to introduce Goodyear SealTech on the new VW Arteon. There is a growing interest in extended mobility solutions from both vehicle manufacturers and consumers, and we continue to invest in the development of technologies such as SealTech to fulfil that demand”, says Nick Harley, Managing Director OE Consumer Goodyear EMEA.

The new Volkswagen Arteon is a four-door fastback that impresses through the innovative, yet practical design. To deliver a premium driving experience, the car will be fitted with the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 tires in size 225/55R17 97W and 245/45R18 96W featuring the new Goodyear SealTech technology.
