Goodyear’s recently-launched DuraPlus tyre for the passenger car segment aims to deliver outstanding mileage on Asia’s roads.
In a statement here today, Goodyear said the tyre, incorporating its TredLife Technology, achieved mileage as much as 100,000 km, or 80 percent, longer that its leading competitor.
“The tyre was tested on the company’s tracks in Mireval (France), Colmar-Berg (Luxembourg) as well as open roads in Thailand against competitors in the same category,” it said.

“Our research indicates that drivers of smaller passenger cars are looking to get longer tread life and more mileage out of their tyres,” he said.
He said over 100 engineers; physicists, chemical experts and tyre evalution specialists had worked to develop DuraPlus.
Smytka said the tyre also offered improved fuel, precise handling and increased comfort
