Goodyear premiers Kelly Navigator Touring Gold

Feb. 3, 2006

The Kelly Navigator Touring Gold premium touring tire from the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is available in 17 sizes with H or V speed ratings.

The new tire’s tread design provides a consistent footprint for a quiet ride and long, even wear, the company says.

Three-dimensional tread elements near the center rib in the five-rib tread design help to evacuate water. An optimized footprint shape distributes pressure to allow more of the tire to maintain contact with the road.

Underneath the tread, a spiral-wound polyester cap ply helps provide enhanced ride comfort while Kelly’s ventless technology offers a premium appearance. Additionally, high-performance tread compounding helps deliver performance-like handling.

The Navigator Touring Gold will be supported with retail outlet point-of-sale materials, radio scripts for retailers and 30-second television spots that can be personalized by local outlets.
