These days, almost every automative parts are made by carbon fibre. Carbon fibre bonnets, roofts, sport rims and the list goes on. But, carbon fibre tyres? Yes, Goodyear annouced that they would release their new Goodyear Eagle with ResponsEdge Technology which will begin to be sold in May 2006.

The new Goodyear Eagle with ResponsEdge Technology has a outboard sidewall reinforced with carbon fiber inserts. This provides strength to increase it's sidewall stiffness, delivering you excellent handling and steering precision. This would definately reduce tyre screeching.

This award is also known as the Oscars of innovation, so it's big freaking honor to say the least. This tire was created by NASA and Goodyear, so you know it was going to be a big deal out the door, and was made for use on the moon. Moon tires of the past were still just rubber, rubber that didn't exactly hold up in heat, cold, and solar radiation. These new tires basically don't even care about any of that ol' crap.
