Introducing the Goodyear ElectricDriveGT
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company just recently unveiled its new ElectricDrive GT, the company’s first replacement tire in North America specifically tuned for electric vehicles. According to the manufacturer, the ElectricDrive GT is an ultra-high performance, all-season tire designed to deliver a long-lasting tread wear with a quiet ride. The ElectricDrive GT features Goodyear’s SoundComfort Technology that the manufacturer describes as a built-in sound barrier to reduce as much road noise as possible. This tire is recognizable by its asymmetric tread pattern. It also includes a specialized tread compound to provide enhanced all-season traction aimed at giving the EV driver the handling he is expecting in both wet and dry road conditions, according to Goodyear’s announcement. The initial release of the Electric Drive GT will be in size 225/45R19 104W XL but Goodyear plans to expand its portfolio during 2022.
