Questions and Answers for the Goodyear Vector 4 Seasons Gen 2 SUV

2018-06-03 - Hi, We live in the Alpes Maritimes in the South of France and have a Land Rover Freelander 2 4x4. We need a tyre that will run mainly in the dry, but that can handle heavy rain and also ice and snow from time to time. This tyre comes out top in the Auto Bild SUV All year test, but does badly in the snow and ice according to the ADAC all year test, which places Nexen N Blue All season top. So what do I choose for a 4x4? I have never heard of Nexen. I hope you can help.

The Goodyear Vector 4 Seasons Gen 2 SUV is excellent in the snow and ice, far exceeding a summer tyre and on par with some winter tyres. I would choose this tyre over the Nexen.

Given 84% while driving a Volvo XC60 D5 AWD Auto (235/45 R18 V) on mostly country roads for 41,000 average miles
switched over to the Goodyear all seasons gen 2 tyres on my Volvo xc60 after original tyres worn out at 18000 miles. Goodyear fronts just replaced after 41000 miles! the 107 wall rating means they handle English potholes far better than most. the rain and ice grip is good and snow is ok but obviously not as good as a pure snow tyre. Had 4x4 's for many years and wouldn't fit any other tyre now.

Live in Switzerland and have plenty of experience on snowy roads. The Vector Gen 2's performed just as well as a traditional winter tyre (I have alwys had Conti TS series,). A no brainer for me - the cost savings of changing tyres each summer/winter season will buy me a new set every 2 years!

I previously had the gen 1 version of this tyre on my Freelander 2. That tyre was good in year 1 but in year 2 the 2 rears went a little out of shape and became noisey. The 2nd generation tyre has been superb and living in rural SW France has been used in very hot summer conditions, on mountain tracks and in fairly deep snow. Braking and handling has been superb in the dry, wet, and on snow throughout the year and there has been no adverse noise with this tyre. However with no difference in driving style they are on the tread wear markers at barely 20k miles when the 1st generation tyres did 28k.
I've never got less than 25k out of any set of tyres on this car since new, so the wear is the one disappointing thing.
