Managing a fleet efficiently requires meticulous planning and resource optimization to ensure timely job completion and minimal vehicle downtime. This becomes even more crucial during the winter months when adverse weather conditions can significantly impact vehicle performance and cause delays, thereby straining delivery quotas.

One effective solution for fleets to maintain optimal performance year-round is to switch to all-season tyre fitments. Goodyear's Vector 4Seasons Cargo tyre is a prime example of this, as its technology allows it to rival the benefits of interchangeable summer and winter tyres, often making it the preferred choice for fleets.

The new sizes available in the Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Cargo range are:

  • 185/65R15C 97/95S
  • 185/75R16C 104/102R
  • 205/70R17C 115/113R
  • 225/75R16C 118/116R
  • 205/70R15C 106/104S
  • 205/70R17C 115/113R
  • 215/60R16C 103/101T
  • 215/60R17C 104/102H
  • 235/60R17C 114/112R

The Vector 4Seasons Cargo tyre has received numerous accolades, including being named 'Green Tire' and Eco-Master 2023 by AutoBild. It incorporates the latest technologies to ensure fleets can operate smoothly throughout the year. In wet conditions, the tyre's Aqua Control Technology disperses water evenly across its contact patch, delivering exceptional performance. Additionally, the Snow Grip Technology features numerous sipes in the tread's center, which helps to claw snow and enhance grip. The Eco Cushion Technology further maximizes efficiency by reducing rolling resistance. The tyre also carries the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) approval mark, certifying its capability to handle winter driving conditions such as ice, slush, and snow.

Sonia Leneveu, Goodyear Director Marketing Consumer Europe, commented on the market's growth, stating, "The market for premium LCT tyres in Europe has grown 13% since 2020 and is expected to continue growing. With the rise in popularity, Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Cargo is the ideal product for LCV fleets operating in areas where weather conditions and topography recommend the use of an all-season product."

Laurent Colantonio, Goodyear Senior Director Technology Consumer EMEA, emphasised the importance of minimising downtime for fleets. "We understand how crucial it is for fleets to keep moving regardless of the weather. With Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Cargo, we've created the perfect tyre to meet the needs of light commercial vehicle fleets whose profitability hinges on minimizing downtime and maximizing resources. To ensure optimal performance over its lifetime, we recommend switching all-season tyres from front to rear at least once a year."
