Easy braking on wet roads The Goodyear Excellence tyre is made with a new polymer compound that helps it grip the road, even in the wettest of conditions. This feature delivers a shorter braking distance, so you can enjoy peace of mind when driving in the rain.
Even wear and smooth handling Excellence tyres are designed to distribute pressure evenly across their surface, which means more even wear in the long term and smoother handling, even at higher speeds on the motorway. Additional shoulder stabilisers also help improve performance while taking corners, so you can feel confident on every journey.
Quiet, comfortable driving Enjoy a quiet, comfortable trip every time with a tread designed to reduce excess noise.
Goodyear’s revolutionary RunOnFlat technology allows you to drive for up to 80km on a flat tire, so you can reach a suitable place to have it changed. Reinforced sidewalls in the tire mean it can support your car’s weight even with zero air pressure, making dangerous roadside tire changes a thing of the past.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
