Goodyear Vector 4 Seasons
Exceptional performance, all year round
The Vector 4Seasons is the all-weather tyre that gives you exceptional performance all year round.
- Excellent year-round performance
- Traction for all road conditions
- Environmentally friendly
- Better control on wet and dry roads
- Exceptional performance, all year round
Excellent year-round performance. Enjoy performance all year round with a tyre that copes with different types of weather. Goodyear’s Weather Reactive Technology helps the Vector 4Seasons adapt to seasonal changes. The unique SmartTRED design features specific tread zones that adjust to road conditions.
Good handling on wet and dry. Designed for high performance driving, the UltraGrip Performance 2 maintains optimal stiffness to give you confident wet and dry handling. The centre line provides continuous contact with the road surface, leading to more precise steering in dry conditions.
Environmentally friendly. Go further on less fuel with a tyre that rolls more easily. The Vector 4Seasons also gives you more mileage, thanks to its all-weather compound and a flatter contour that spreads pressure evenly.
Traction for all road conditions. Keep your grip with an all-weather compound that performs in summer and winter temperatures. Featuring high-density 3D waffle blades, the Vector 4Seasons offers better ice and snow traction than its competitors.*The tyre is certified with the snowflake symbol, which means it meets the official standards of dedicated winter tyres.
Better control on wet and dry roads. Stay in control in rain or snow. The Vector 4Seasons offers better aquaplaning resistance on wet roads and 11% shorter braking distances on ice.*Dry handling is reliable, with stiff tread blocks that give you extra stability when steering and cornering.

TUV Claims Snow: 5% more grip 2.4% shorter braking distance Ice: 2.4% shorter braking distance 11% shorter braking distance Wet: 4% better aquaplaning resistance Tested against two leading competitors, from March to April 2008 by TÜV SÜD Automotive, Tyre size: 175/65 R14, Car: VW Polo, Report #76230122-2.
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
