Goodyear juggles 5 issues to remain profitable

July 30, 2015

By the numbers, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. enjoyed very positive results in the second quarter of its 2015 fiscal year.

How it turned a $192 million profit, and posted record operating income to boot, was discussed during the company's conference call on July 29. Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich listened in; his latest blog details what was said, and helps explain why Goodyear Chairman and CEO Rich Kramer is so happy.

Ulrich keys on five topics:

1. Global pricing,

2. Online tire sales,

3. The Kelly Edge powerline,

4. Latin American economics, and

5. Winter tire sales in Europe.
