Goodyear expands EV tyre offering

Goodyear has bolstered its electric vehicle tyre lineup with the launch of the all-new ElectricDrive all-season tyre. The tyre maker has also added two new sizes for its ultra-high performance tyre, the ElectricDrive GT.

Available in sizes 215/50R17 95V XL and 215/55R17 94V SL, Goodyear says the new ElectricDrive is ideal for cars such as the Nissan Leaf and Kia Niro EV, and offers a V speed rating.

Goodyear’s ElectricDrive tyres are engineered with a load index to account for the heavier load capacity of EVs and features SoundComfort Technology designed to help reduce the level of interior vehicle noise.

The new EV tyre also features a specialised tread compound for all-season traction and long-lasting tread life, while an asymmetric tread pattern provides confident handling for wet or dry road conditions.

Additionally, Goodyear launched two new sizes for its ElectricDrive GT tyre that was originally introduced in December 2021.

“The addition of the new ElectricDrive GT sizes allow us to meet the unique needs of more electric vehicle drivers with premium, performance Goodyear products,” said a Goodyear spokesperson.

The ElectricDrive GT comes with a W speed rating and is now available in sizes 255/45R19 104W XL, 235/45R18 98W XL and 235/40R19 96W XL.
