In a licensing deal with FDP Virginia, Goodyear Brakes announced Sept. 16 it's introducing a full line of braking components.

Wally McCarty, senior vice president of Business Development for Goodyear Brakes, said, "While OEM braking systems have improved and advanced, driver assistance systems (ADAS) have reduced extreme brake wear and increased the brakes’ lifespan. There are very few well-known brand names in the brake category, so this makes it difficult for consumers to determine what are premium quality brake system components and fair prices when replacing brakes on their vehicle.”

Premium quality brake bundles, calipers, rotors, brake pads, and all the hardware for today’s most popular vehicles, from daily drivers to SUVs as well as light trucks are manufactured by Goodyear Brakes.

The Goodyear Brakes Product Line

The Goodyear Brakes product line was developed through decades of friction science experience, advanced engineering, and thorough laboratory and on-road testing. Testing was performed at the company’s labs in Virginia, and third-party testing was conducted by Link Engineering Company (LINK) in Detroit. Testing included Dynomometer Tests, Independent Laboratory Tests, Environmental Tests and Certification, Analytical Tests, Vehicle Traffic Tests, and Performance Vehicle Tests.

Goodyear Brakes braking systems offer superior braking performance and consistent braking through all temperature ranges, as well as excellent corrosion prevention through its proprietary Antiox Max coating for maximum rust and corrosion protection.  This is a critical protection needed for driving in inclement weather and brine-treated streets.

The full product line includes:

  • Goodyear Brakes premium brake pads manufactured in the USA and specifically formulated to provide maximum stopping effectiveness, control, and durability
  • High-performance Goodyear Brakes rotors that are CNC-machined to build maximum performance, durability, and safety into every rotor and feature a proprietary Antiox Max coating for maximum rust and corrosion protection, a critical protection needed for driving in inclement weather and brine-treated streets
  • High-performance Goodyear Brakes calipers built using exacting standards to match original equipment manufacturer (OEM) requirements, feature Antiox Max coating and come with the correct brackets and hardware to ensure a perfect installation
  • Goodyear Brakes hardware accompanies every brake bundle to ensure you have all of the high-quality parts to successfully complete your brake installation
