Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3



Manufacturer's description

Excellent wet, dry and snow performance. More test wins than any other brand tested.

  • Better grip on snow (Better grip on snow through large amount of sipes at the center of the tread. The sipes influence each other at their intersection, stimulating their opening for better grip);
  • Shorter dry braking & Improved dry handling (Shorter dry braking & Improved dry handling. Reduced deformation of the tire during heavy maneuvers through strong crown & shoulder blocks);
  • Lifetime aquaplaning resistance (Lifetime Aqua Planing Resistance. Over time grooves evolve to continuously ensure water dispersion).

Notable Features

Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 is an all-season tire with an asymmetric tread pattern, which the manufacturer put on the market in 2020. The tire is characterized by great traction and smooth ride in any weather conditions all year round, combined with low rolling resistance, and long treadlife.

The Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 model came to replace Vector 4Seasons Gen-2, which was put on sale five years ago. The optimized tread pattern underwent a few changes, even though it kept its symmetry and direction, these changes promising 20% higher hydroplaning resistance in comparison with other types of design, as well as more efficient evacuation of water, snow, and slush from the contact patch. Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 / Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 The results of the Goodyear in-company test, which was conducted to compare the performance of Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 and Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 in size 205/55 R16, prove that the new all-season model outstrips its predecessor literally in every respect. And, while the level of snow, wet, and dry traction increased only slightly, the new all-season model is head and shoulders above the old one in terms of rolling resistance and expected mileage. Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 test results At the same time, the test involved the Goodyear’s two main all-season rivals, Continental AllSeasonContact and Michelin CrossClimate+, with the latter being able to surpass the third-generation Vector 4 Seasons model in terms of dry traction and resistance to wear. Tire technologies The all-season model Vector 4Seasons 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.

The version of this all-season model designed specially for vehicles with a high gravity center is named Goodyear Vector 4Seasons SUV Gen-3.

My first all season tires, but they will stay for a long time. The car performs well on dry and wet roads, as well as smoothly starts and brakes on a snow-covered road. Interestingly, on a snow-covered and icy road, they perform better than the "budget" winter tires that I had previously put on - with budget tires, the car skidded right away, while on GY Vector 4S tires the car started moving - towards my a positive surprise (the "test" took place on the same snow-covered road a moment before and after replacing the tires with all-season tires).

The tires are great. I switched from economy class tires to premium class tires and, despite a slight price difference between 175/65 R14 tires, the driving characteristics have improved dramatically. The car enters the corners more confidently, with greater speed. The braking distance has been significantly reduced and, during emergency braking, the car stops faster. In difficult situations, when a sudden change of direction is required, the tires "stick" the car to the road, even in unfavorable road conditions. While driving, water and snow are discharged on a regular basis. You don't feel a drastic drop in grip. The listed driving characteristics contribute to the feeling of safety and safe driving. To sum up: tires are worth recommending for any money, especially when we drive in different conditions and are looking for non-compromise tires.
