Goodyear’s SoundComfort technology has been voted Product of the Year 2019 in a consumer research survey conducted by Nielsen in Belgium and the Netherlands, the largest survey of its kind in the world.
Goodyear’s SoundComfort tyres are designed with a built-in sound barrier. Like a cushion for the tyres, this acoustical barrier reduces air vibrations and dampens the interior noise in the car while driving, making the vehicle cabin half as quiet compared to regular tyres. This results in a quieter, more relaxed driving experience for the passengers, Goodyear says.
One of the main sources of tyre noise is the tyre air cavity resonance, produced by air vibration inside the tyre and transmitted to the vehicle’s structure. Goodyear’s SoundComfort technology works directly to reduce the tyre air cavity resonance.
Many summer and winter tyres of Goodyear are available with SoundComfort technology in selected sizes.
