Geneva International Motor Show 2017, The Future Tyre by Goodyear – It’s a Sphere
Goodyear unveiled its latest concept tyre, Eagle-360, at the Geneva International Motor Show. The spherical, 3-D printed tyre highlights Goodyear’s vision for the future and presents an inspiring solution for the long-term future when autonomous driving is expected to be more mainstream.
According to a recent study, 85 million autonomous-capable vehicles are expected to be sold annually around the world by 2035.
Goodyear recommended in 80% of magazine tests.
Summer, Winter and All-Season tyres aren’t just highly rated, they’re also highly recommended.
In over 80% of independent European tyre tests over the past 5 years, our winter summer and all-season tyres were recommended for everything from grip to braking. That’s because Goodyear’s engineers test each new tyre design against more than 50 performance criteria. To ensure each Goodyear tyre lead to better driving experiences.
Winter driving tips from Goodyear Tyres
Driving in snow, slush and ice brings its own problems. Here are a few tips to consider:
Keep your speed down
You shouldn’t exceed the maximum speed that your vehicle recommends for winter tyres – it’s often lower than that of summer tyres.
Check the tyres for wear
Check your tyre pressure and tread depth regularly. Goodyear recommends a minimum tread depth of 4mm for winter tyres to ensure optimal performance, but in colder countries where using winter tyres is mandatory, tread depth will be specified by law.
Use a higher gear to start and pull away
Spinning your wheels can dig the vehicle deeper into the snow.
Don’t ‘pump’ your brakes
If you have anti-lock brakes, keep a steady pressure on the brake pedal instead.
Keep your distance
Braking distances increase in snow and icy conditions.
Be careful over bridges or passes
They are well known locations for icy patches, so lift your foot slightly off the accelerator when going over them.
Don’t overdo the accelerator if stuck in snow
There’s a danger you’ll just end up deeper in a hole. Use the lowest possible gear and rock the tyres back and forth until you’ve got enough forward motion to push yourself forward.
You’ll need all the concentration you can muster in heavy snowy conditions. Don’t take calls or do anything else that could distract you.
