Tyres for the middle SUV Segment
The middle SUV segment is clearly a growing market, and is expected to increase with a compound annual growth rate of more than 12% from 2012 to 2020 . This is evident as sales of SUVs in Malaysia grew 21.3% per cent YTD in June 2016 . In order to meet the growing demand, Goodyear will continue to be committed to innovate and offer high performance products to our consumers.

With consumer-driven needs at the center of its tire innovations, the new Wrangler TripleMax provides peace-of-mind when driving, keeping families safer across road conditions. Goodyear developed the Wrangler TripleMax with an improved version of its proprietary HYDROGRIP Technology®, along with its innovative tread design, optimized carcass and high grip compound, delivers shorter wet braking performance.

|Superior Braking Performance, the Wrangler TripleMax comes with large blocks and biting edges, providing an increased road contact for better braking and grip on both wet and dry roads.|
Goodyear's HYDROGRIP Technology
Its proprietary HYDROGRIP Technology features superior braking performance. The tread and cavity design of the new Wrangler TripleMax with its larger surface area contact patch, ensures an enhanced braking ability through biting edges and large block elements.
The proprietary HYDROGRIP Technology is a combination of three elements:
- Superior Braking Performance: The HydroGrip Technology used for the Wrangler TripleMax, is made with large blocks and a high number of biting edges to increase contact to road asperity. This delivers better braking and grip on wet and dry roads.
- Wet Performance: The HydroGrip Technology used for the Wrangler TripleMax, is made with enhanced ESBR compound for multipurpose performances to improve braking and grip on both wet and dry roads.
- Road Hazard Resistant: The Wrangler TripleMax designed with rim flange protector, provides more material on the sidewall to protect the rim and tire against road hazards.

For the Malaysian market, Goodyear Malaysia is offering 16", 17" and 18" rim diameter variants, with the subsequent sizes being added to the range in due time. The Goodyear Wrangler TripleMax tire retails from RM443.72 to RM675.22 inclusive of GST, depending on different sizes.
