Many of the world's leading commercial vehicle manufacturers fit Goodyear truck tyres. These include DAF, Iveco, MAN, Mercedes-Benz, Renault Trucks, Scania and Volvo. We also supply tyres to all major trailer manufacturers like Fliegl, Kögel, Krone, Schmitz Cargobull, Schwarzmüller and many more.
At Goodyear we work closely with these manufacturers in the development of their new models so that the truck tyres we supply help to optimise the performance of their vehicles and to meet the end customers needs.
One of the challenging areas in the development of tyes is to find innovative solutions. For example, we have produced High Load truck tyres to overcome the problem of increasing weight on front axles due to the introduction of Euro VI engines. We have also produced very low profile truck tyres that reduce the ride height of vehicles. This allows increased load height within legal dimensional limitations and without reducing brake size. Further examples are Super Single truck tyres that replace twin wheel fitments on trailers and drive axles. These reduce vehicle weight, and thus increase payload.
