Dunlop takes top honors in Asian J.D. Power study

Dec. 21, 2005

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.'s Dunlop brand has received the highest J.D. Power Asia Pacific customer satisfaction rating for its original equipment tires on Japanese compact cars.

Tires were evaluated based on durability, fuel economy, traction and other factors.

Andy Traicoff, Dunlop director of marketing in North America, says Dunlop’s top finish in the Japanese study is important because of the number of Japanese cars that are exported to the United States and Canada.
