Goodyear Vector 4Seasons SUV Gen-3 is an SUV and CUV high-performance all-season tire with a directional symmetric tread pattern, which was launched to the European market in 2020. The tire is characterized by great traction and smooth ride in any weather conditions all year round, low rolling resistance, and long treadlife.
The Goodyear Vector 4Seasons SUV Gen-3 model came to replace Vector 4Seasons SUV Gen-2, which was put on sale four years ago. The optimized tread pattern underwent a few changes, even though it kept its symmetry and direction, these changes promising a 20% boost in hydroplaning resistance in comparison with other types of tread design, as well as more efficient evacuation of water, snow, and slush from the contact patch.
The all-season model Vector 4Seasons SUV Gen-3 has wide curvilinear tread blocks and extra sipes (also known as lamellas) in the central section of the tread pattern. They form a lot of biting edges that ensure dependable traction on winter roads, hills, and during sharp cornering. The engineers were able to achieve more effective water and slush dispersion thanks to the deep and wide drainage grooves, while the tire’s deformation during emergency maneuvers on dry pavement was reduced thanks to the reinforced shoulder areas of Vector 4Seasons SUV Gen-3.
The version of this all-season model designed for passenger cars is named accordingly — Goodyear Vector 4Seasons SUV Gen-3.
