New puncture sealing technology for a new executive car

Announced with great fanfare at the Geneva International Motor Show in March, the Volkswagen Arteon will be fitted with Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 tyres as original equipment.

This gives Goodyear the opportunity to showcase its brand new puncture sealing technology. Known as “SealTech”, this solution seals punctures in the tyre tread of up to 5mm in diameter, and this without affecting performance. 

“We are proud to broaden our portfolio and to introduce Goodyear SealTech on the new Volkswagen Arteon. There is a growing interest in extended mobility solutions from both vehicle manufacturers and consumers. This is why we continue to invest in the development of technologies such as SealTech" says Nick Harley, Managing Director OE Consumer Goodyear EMEA.

The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is approved for the Arteon in sizes 225/55R17 97W and 245/45R18 96W and the new “SealTech” marking will be visible on the sidewall of the tyre. Volkswagen’s new executive car is already available for sale.
