In over 80% of independent European tyre tests over the past 5 years, our winter summer and all-season tires 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 tire lead to better driving experiences.

They independently test tyres for an average of 15 key performance criteria, typically including:
Which organisations test our tyres?
We put every new tyre we design through 50 tough tests to make sure they perform as well as they were designed to.

*Based on 208 magazine tests, since 2013, performed by 37 independent European tire magazines. Taken into account are only tests in which Goodyear has participated in. Further information available under https://www.goodyear.eu/en_gb/consumer/legal-disclaimer-80-claim.html. The term “recommended” is based on the individual ranking systems of the different magazine publications and is defined as tests in which Goodyear tires have achieved either ranks between 1 – 3 or a nomination of “very recommendable”, “recommendable”, “very good”, “good”, “exemplary” or “satisfying”.
For those magazines who have a different rating system we have standardised their rating scale to ensure they match our calculation; an ADAC rating of “good” translates to “very recommendable” and a rating of “satisfying” translates to “recommendable.” An Auto Bild (Auto Bild Allrad, Sportscars, Reisemobil) rating of “exemplary” translates to “very recommendable” and a rating of “good” translates to “recommendable”. All other “very good” ratings translate to “very recommendable” and “good” ratings translate to “recommendable.”
