AKRON (Sept. 18, 2003)—Goodyear has launched a Dunlop light truck/sport-utility vehicle tire targeted to young male car enthusiasts.
The Rover RVXT is an all-terrain performance tire that consolidates two product lines—the Dunlop Rover RV and Rover P-Metric. It will be offered in 31 sizes ranging from 15- to 17-inch rim diameters.
The tire features a ventless design, long treadlife and a quiet ride and is built with a circumferential subtread for better handling and on-center feel, Goodyear said.
The tire also has an extended tread design that protects the sidewall from potential scuffing and four ribs for on- and off-road performance. In addition, deep lateral grooves provide extra traction in tough conditions, Goodyear said.
