GOODYEAR EAGLE PERFORMANCE TIRES STAR ON CHEVROLET SSR
When the highly anticipated Chevrolet SSR roadster pickup hits the streets, it will be riding on Goodyear Eagle performance tires. General Motors selected Goodyear to develop tires for the innovative specialty vehicle that goes into production in late 2002. Goodyear engineers used computer modeling to develop super-wide Eagle RS-A performance tires in an accelerated program. "Think of it as tire development on steroids," says John Eagleburger, Goodyear team leader for the General Motors account.
