Goodyear adds some (carbon) fiber to its diet

Is there any application that wouldn’t benefit from the addition of carbon fiber? You can strike tire technology from the list, as Goodyear has announced a new line of Eagle tires that features ResponsEdge Technology. The outboard sidewall of these new shoes are reinforced with a carbon fiber insert that improves stiffness for sharper handling.
Goodyear has also added a sound- and shock-absorbing layer, called InsuLayer in marketing speak, that’s comprised of Kevlar. These new technologies create what Goodyear claims is a “performance tire with manners” and further contributes to the mass proliferation of our favorite exotic material.
