NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Goodyear rolled out a pair of new passenger tires at its 2018 Customer Conference in Nashville, one designed for the police pursuit market and one that offers the highest-mileage rating in the company's history.
The new tires are the Eagle Enforcer All Weather and Assurance MaxLife.
The Eagle Enforcer All Weather, which features an asymmetric tread pattern and multi-zone tread compounds, is designed to provide responsive performance for police vehicles in all weather conditions.
"This tire is for law enforcement agencies that need the enhanced winter traction of a mountain snowflake tire and the reliability and responsiveness of a pursuit tire," Andy Traicoff, vice president, North America sales, said.
Available in the most popular pursuit vehicle sizes in the market — 265/60R17, 225/60R18 and 245/55R18 — the tire features a soy-based rubber compound with silica for stable traction and enhancing tread life, as well as aggressive shoulder blocks and wide lateral grooves for "confident" maneuverability in all weather conditions, Goodyear said.
