Since 1898, Goodyear's tyre innovation has lead the company to become one of the largest tyre manufacturers in the world.

‘New thinking’ has consistently been at the heart of Goodyear’s approach since 1943 when their major research facility was established. It has since become the birthplace of thousands of patented innovations. These innovations produce numerous award wins every year.
Leading Automotive European magazines chose the Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 as one of the best All Season tyres on the market. The Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 has been recognised with four test awards from European Magazine testing in 2018 alone.
