Goodyear has designed and developed the ‘Tall and Narrow’ specifically for the new Renault Scenic.
‘Tall’ relates to the rim diameter. A larger diameter implies less tire deformation and thus less heat generated within the tire, with lower rolling resistance and lower fuel consumption as a result. A taller tire has more wearable rubber volume due to its larger circumference which enhances mileage.
‘Narrow’ indicates a narrower section width, providing better aerodynamics (=lower fuel consumption), less noise and better aquaplaning resistance*.
The Tall and Narrow tire will be available in the following patterns:
|• Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance:||195/55R20 95H XL|
|• Vector 4Seasons Gen-2:||195/55R20 95H XL|
|• UltraGrip Performance Gen-1:||195/55R20 95H XL (under development)|
*Testing undertaken between September 2013 and April 2016 at Goodyear Proving Ground Mireval and Renault’s Proving Ground in Aubevoye.
We’re proud of our achievements over that time. We don’t like to boast, but:
Our engineers and scientists are still at the cutting edge of innovation today, not only in rubber and polymer science but also in diverse fields including computing, physics and mathematics.
But there’s more to us than tyres. Our inventions and breakthroughs are also used in areas like adhesives, food packaging and even artificial hearts.
From tyres for tough conditions, to tyres that last longer, we want to do more for the people who buy and use what we make.
