Q:

What is the tire rating for Goodyear Viva 2 tires?

A:

The tire rating for Goodyear Viva 2 tires depends on the specific size of the tires; some are S-rated (indicating a maximum speed of 112 mph), and some are T-rated (indicating a maximum speed of 118 mph). It's important to ensure that new tires have a speed rating that is equal to or greater than that of the other tires on the vehicle.

Goodyear Viva 2 tires are all-season black sidewall passenger tires with segmented lugs and wide circumferential grooves for improved traction. The treat pitch is optimized and the tread sequence is randomized for a quieter ride. Viva 2 tires have Uniform Tire Quality Grades of 440 for tread wear, A for traction and B for temperature. Goodyear manufactures Viva 2 tires exclusively for Walmart and its subsidiaries.

  • Q:

    How can you flatten a tire?

    A:

    Safely deflate a tire by depressing the relief valve located at the top of its valve stem. Tires are commonly bled or aired down to one-third of their standard highway-driving pressure to allow for better traction when driven in snow or sand. Bleeding down works by increasing each tire's footprint.
