What is OE?
OE stands for Original Equipment - the parts that your vehicle was fitted with at the factory. Original equipment can include key components under the bonnet through to your car tyres.
OE tyres are developed by tyre manufacturers in conjunction with the vehicle manufacturer. This process takes place during the early development cycle of a new vehicle. During this cycle, the tyre manufacturer will look at various aspects of tyre performance, such as dry and wet handling, dry and wet braking and tyre noise.
Goodyear work with many vehicle manufacturers to develop high performance tyres for new car models. You can discover more about tyres we’ve designed for Audi, BMW, Land Rover, and many more.
Tyre specifications are unique to each manufacturer and follow their own brand philosophy and DNA. Only OE approved tyres are fitted to new vehicles on the assembly line.
