Product description & features
The Goodyear Excellence has been developed to deliver high performance in three key areas - grip, handling and comfort.
Goodyear constructed the compound of the Excellence tyre with special polymer material to enhance gripping properties, meaning the tyre is capable of recording shorter braking distances - especially in wet conditions.
To deliver precise and consistent handling Goodyear have included shoulder stabilisers in the construction of the tyre to help keep a firm grip on the road, even when tackling corners.
Goodyear have also designed the tyre to equally distribute pressure evenly throughout the tyre when in motion for a reliable performance and even wear.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
