Goodyear Accolades!

by: Willie Whitewall

 

New Eagle GT leads the way in recent media coverage

The new Eagle GT is already garnering attention from various outlets, which have been writing about the high performance tire’s eye-catching tread and sidewall design.

Especially targeted at the “tuner” segment – those who consider their car a form of self-expression and pride – the Eagle GT was described by Performance Auto & Sound magazine as “an ultra-high performance tire, with an aggressive tread and clean sidewalls.”

Mike Maez, of Modified magazine wrote, “While many enthusiasts in our particular market segment (tuner cars, sport compacts) consider the inevitable decision of which tire manufacturer to spend their hard-earned dollars, rarely do they consider Goodyear. With the new Eagle GT, however, Goodyear is aiming to change all of that.”

STORE #16 – DILLON, SC

To whom it may concern,

I am writing this letter in response to the service I received in your store on June 28th, 2008. I am from the Indianapolis Indiana metro area and was on vacation in Ocean Isle, North Carolina this past week. My family was returning home and was passing through Dillon on our way to I-95. We pulled up to an intersection in town and noticed a loud, screeching sound coming from the passenger side front tire. I believed this was not a simple brake problem and thought the problem could be serious. I was traveling with my wife, and my two sons (4) and (2) years of age and pictured a major car expense and a hotel room in Dillon in my future. Our goal was to drive the entire distance in one day to make it home by 9 or 10pm, and this vehicle break down could jeopardize this. I pulled into your store and was given superior service on a Saturday morning. I believe the technicians name was T.J. who fixed our tire by replacing a bolt that had broken on the p ...

FLORENCE, SC

We are from Virginia and were travelling back from Key West. When we were leaving the hotel (Thunderbird Motor Lodge)on the morning of the 17th in Florence, S.C., we noticed a nail in the front left tire. The manager at the hotel told us to go to Black’s Tire which was a couple of lights down the road. The people there were awesome. They took the nail out, tested for a leak and told us to have a nice day. That kind of customer service is very rare these days and we just wanted you to know we appreciated it very much. A lot of companies might have tried to take advantage of us since were so far from home and at their mercy. These guys didn’t!

Thank you so much,
Diana & Earl Englehart
