Winter driving can be made safer with good tyres!
Tyres are the only point of contact between your car and the road and so ensuring that your tyres are in good order, free from cracks and pumped up to the correct PSI is key to a safe driving experience during the colder and wet months ahead.
GOODYEAR makes new, space-age tyres!
To produce the tyres for the Space Shuttle, Goodyear and NASA teamed up and on several occasions and had to break the mold to produce a tyre for the Shuttle to land on. The tyres that were used on the last few missions contained 800 load bearing springs that negated the need for air and the side walls were developed to allow the enormous forces of landings.
This side wall research lead to run flat tyres that are standard fit on so many new BMW’s today. The tread of the Shuttle tyre was made up of fibrous strands in the rubber and use of this material will lead to tyres with a range of at least 10,000 more miles and more combined Summer/Winter tyres.
