Goodyear vs M/T?

Heard Goodyear is testing a new tire to compete with the Bubba tires from M/T...can anyone confirm? Anyone know anyone testing the tires for Goodyear?

Hoosier clearly failed in all attempts so far...just an observation and no one is claiming the Hoosier is better so far.

At roughly $900.00 a pair I was looking for an alternative that will hold air without soaping and doesn't require a ton of weight to balance like all my Bubba's have required in the last 2 years?

Anyone have any info?

If you can't "fix" your chassis adjustments to run a Hoosier without shaking you should just give New Jersey a call...…………. Falling of chair laughing

I just had to check the calendar for April Fools day !

But to answer your question, GY has been trying for years!! And not just a few either. They once had a very good tire over ten years ago, the 2032 was very good, only big issue was shake in the burnout. They certainly messed that tire up.

SO ya they got tires to try for you! And I'd bet they won't be on long enough to require soap either.
