Goodyear unveils new commercial tire inflation technology

| 9/19/2012

Researchers at The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company have been working on a new Air Maintenance Technology application that they say can improve fuel savings and carbon dioxide reductions while potentially improving performance and eliminating the need for external inflation pressure intervention.

The commercial application of Goodyear’s Air Maintenance Technology made its debut at the 2012 Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover, Germany, on Sept. 19. 

Goodyear’s Air Maintenance Technology mechanism allows tires to maintain constant, optimum pressure without the use of external pumps, electronics and driver intervention.
