The Goodyear® Story
Goodyear is an iconic brand built on 120 years of dedication to uncompromising standards and performance. Founder Frank Seiberling began building The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company in 1898 when he entered the accelerating race for bicycle and carriage tires that outperformed the competition on rough roads. The company's name was a tribute to Charles Goodyear to recognize his discovery of rubber vulcanization after a long and courageous search.
An American brand synonymous with winning in Formula One, NASCAR, and NHRA drag racing, Goodyear designs and manufactures tires for aviation, commercial trucking, and heavy earth-moving equipment in addition to passenger cars and light trucks. Today, the Goodyear brand can be found on footwear, apparel, accessories, luggage and sports equipment, promotional items, car accessories, safety products, toys, and memorabilia.
