Goodyear launches first ever dedicated coach tyres in Europe

Goodyear has launched its first ever dedicated coach tyres in Europe – the Goodyear all position tyre Marathon Coach and Goodyear Ultra Grip Coach winter drive tyre.

Goodyear’s recently commissioned survey reveals that 89 per cent of the interviewed bus and coach fleets see rising fuel costs as the main key challenge in the road transport sector.

The survey also showed that cost per kilometer was the most important characteristic that operators look for in coach and bus tyres generally, with 64 pe cent of participants listing this as top priority or very important. Second was fuel efficiency / rolling resistance (62 per cent), third mileage (58 per cent). Comfort and wet grip followed with 54 per cent and 48 per cent respectively.

The new Goodyear Coach tyre ranges meet the needs of European coach operators that were revealed by the survey and offer excellent all round performance and label grades.
