As the vehicle’s only point of contact with the road, tyre development was an important component of the overall performance equation. Goodyear engineers worked closely with the Camaro development team to design and engineer tyres to deliver superior performance. The project, which included more than 13,000 hours of tyre development and testing, resulted in three unique tyre fitments engineered to complement the performance and character of the new Camaro.

“Goodyear and Chevrolet share a similar heritage, built on both performance and innovation,” said Johann Finkelmeier, Goodyear’s vice president of North America original equipment sales. “Each of our Eagle performance tyres have been tuned to the Camaro chassis, and incorporate Goodyear’s innovative advancements in tyre technology to deliver superior traction and handling.”

In L​T trim, the Camaro features standard 18-inch wheels with Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season tyres in size 245/50R18. The Eagle Sport All-Season, featuring an innovative tread compound, offers powerful performance with responsive handling and strong grip in all-season conditions.

 

Also available are optional 20-inch wheels, wrapped with Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season RunOnFlat® tyres in size 245/40R20. The Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season is Goodyear’s premium ultra-high performance all-season tyre. It features a dual-zone asymmetric tread pattern, which includes a Dry Handling Zone on the outside shoulder for enhanced handling and grip and an All-Season Zone on the inside shoulder to help shed water and slush for enhanced wet traction.

The Camaro SS features 20-inch aluminum wheels equipped with Goodyear’s next-generation ultra-high performance summer tyre—the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3RunOnFlat®—in size 245/40ZR20 (front) and 275/35ZR20 (rear). The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is Goodyear’s premium offering for responsive handling and control in both dry and wet conditions, and will debut on the Camaro SS before its full release in 2016. The tyre was extensively tested on the 2016 Camaro SS at a number of world-renowned race tracks, including Virginia International Raceway, Road Atlanta and Germany’s NürburgringNordschleife.

Both the Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season and the EagleF1 Asymmetric 3 feature Goodyear’s RunOnFlat® technology, which allows consumers to drive up to 50 miles on a deflating or deflated tyre at a top speed of 50 mph.

Goodyear tyres are on more new vehicles in North America than any other brand, including many from Acura, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda, Infiniti, Jeep, Land Rover, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, Scion, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen.
