The new line will be available in May with 24 sizes targeting performance touring sedans.
The new Eagle featuring ResponsEdge Technology features an outboard sidewall reinforced with a carbon fiber insert for stiffness, resulting in “responsive handling and steering precision,” according to Goodyear.
The tire’s belt package includes Goodyear’s Kevlar-based InsuLayer, “to help provide a smooth, quiet ride, along with promoting even treadwear,” said the company.
A dual-compound, asymmetric tread has an “all-season zone” with an open tread pattern, aquachutes for water dispersion, and TredLock technology microgrooves. The outboard “Performance Zone” consists of “performance tread blocks and a solid circumferential rib made with a "grip-enhancing compound” to aid traction, handing and braking, said Goodyear.
Additionally, the Eagle featuring ResponsEdge Technology offers a rim protector, and PermaBlack sidewall compound for new-tire appearance throughout the tire’s life.
The tire will be offered with Goodyear’s Eagle Performance Package, which includes a 30-day no-obligation trial, roadside assistance program, nationwide warranty service and e-mail tire rotation reminders.
