Hello and Welcome to Flaxley Tyres.
On this page, we would like to tell you a bit more about one of our premium brands
and best-sellers – Goodyear tyres.
In 1898, Frank Seiberling founded the company, which was soon to set standards regarding car tyres with its Goodyear tyres. Named after the inventor of the vulcanization, Charles Goodyear, the Goodyear Tyre & Rubber Company initially made rubber goods of all kinds and only afterwards tyres for carriages and bicycles. With the increasing popularity of the automobile, Goodyear began producing tyres at the beginning of the 20th century and quickly achieved its first successes. For example, the US-company based in Akron, Ohio, invented the world's first universal rim and developed a tyre manufacturing machine that made the production of Goodyear tyres more economical.
When it was founded, there were only 13 employees involved in the production of Goodyear tyres; today there are just under 70,000 employees in 27 countries, spread over more than 90 plants worldwide. Goodyear is considered to be an innovative tyre manufacturer, constantly developing new tyres and improving the main features of summer and winter tyres. Among the most important new developments of the Goodyear, engineers are the first all-weather tyres as radial tyres (1977) and the first high-performance tyres (1987). Also, Goodyear tyres are praised for their Extended Mobility Technology (EMT) - the name of Goodyear Run-flat tyres.
After the company had begun in 1910 with the production of aircraft tyres and Goodyear developed tyres for other special vehicles, brought his tyres even to the moon. The “Lunar Rover” drove more than 55 miles on the moon on three moon missions with special Goodyear tyres. Also in Formula 1 Goodyear tyres were used until 1998 by top teams such as Williams and Ferrari.
Goodyear today builds tyres for all types of vehicles, mainly passenger car tyres and truck tyres. Especially Goodyear all-season tyres enjoy great popularity, as they are considered very reliable. How well Goodyear tyres perform on all kinds of road surfaces and in all weathers is also shown again and again in independent tyre tests.
There, tyres such as the Goodyear UltraGrip 8 regularly occupy front places. In this Goodyear winter tyre, the directional profile of the former test winner UltraGrip 7 has been further improved. This increased traction and further reduced the braking distance. This ensures optimum handling on snow-covered roads but also reduces the aquaplaning risk by a whopping 16 percent.
The all-weather tyre Goodyear Vector 4Seasons, however, can be driven throughout the year. Its driving characteristics reflect what Goodyear tyres stand for longevity, safe handling, good traction on wet and dry roads, snow and ice. Steady-running and cornering stability, low rolling resistance and low noise levels make it ideal for those looking for comfort and safety.
