Tyre testing is an important part of Goodyear's development process. Goodyear tests truck tyres intensively at the Goodyear Innovation Center in Luxembourg and in Mireval in the south of France. Both locations have different test set-ups in which different conditions can be simulated. This allows tyres to be tested, for example, on road surfaces with varying grip and on slippery surfaces.
