SOYBEANS AS FIBER
Ask your tire dealer for soy-based tires.
Soybean oil improves tire flexibility at lower temperatures, allowing for increasing rubber pliability and traction in cold temperatures, rain or snow. Additionally, soybean oil mixes better with rubber compounds in the tire leading to reduced energy consumption and a more efficient manufacturing process.
The Goodyear® Tire and Rubber Company has successfully developed innovative lines of soy-based tires. Supported by U.S. soybean farmers, Goodyear is committed to sustainability by increasing amounts of soybean oil in their tires and reducing the amount of petroleum oil.
Supported by U.S. soybean farmers through the United Soybean board and the soy checkoff, Goodyear is committed to sustainability by increasing amounts of soybean oil in their tires and reducing the amount of petroleum oil. Their soy-based tires are available in more than 40 sizes to fit a range of passenger vehicles.
Goodyear’s sustainability goals outlined in their Corporate Responsibility Report included increased consumption of soybean oil by 25 percent by 2020 and to fully replace petroleum-derived oils by 2040.
