Volkswagen selects Goodyear for ID. Buzz

Volkswagen has selected Goodyear all-season, summer and winter tyres as original equipment options for the ID. Buzz and ID.Buzz Cargo.

The Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3, Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5, and UltraGrip Performance+ have all been OE-approved by the German automotive brand.

The Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 is Goodyear’s all-season solution and will be fitted as 235/60R18 (front) and 255/55R18 (rear) for those wanting the best all-round performance in any weather condition. This tyre model also comes with the 3PMSF (Three Peak Mountain Snowflake) logo.

The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 has been selected for its handling in dry and wet weather conditions, and will be available for 18-inch fitments. The tyre is a proven test winner that strands up impressively in wet weather and efficiency.

Being an electric vehicle, the ID. Buzz requires a tyre that can handle the characteristics of an electric powertrain while remaining comfortable and quiet.

Goodyear’s UltraGrip Performance+, meanwhile, is designed to give optimum performance in snow and ice while maintaining a strong level of grip in the dry.

Available on 18 and 20-inch rims, the tyre includes features that yield excellent braking distances on snow, optimised tread wear and reduced risk of aquaplaning. As part of Goodyear’s extensive winter tyre range, the UltraGrip Performance+ comes with the 3PMSF logo, designating it as designed specifically for ice and snow conditions.

Hans Vrijsen, managing director consumer OE, Goodyear EMEA said: “We are privileged to have been selected by Volkswagen to supply the tyres for the ID. Buzz. With the three tyres available, we have every condition covered.

“As an EV, we have put extra consideration into minimising rolling resistance, and with electrification being a key part of Goodyear’s strategy, we have a wide range of tyres suited to the demands and performance of electric cars.”
