FDP Virginia Inc., which develops and sells Goodyear Brakes, announced that it is introducing 63 new parts numbers to its line of premium brake pads, which are manufactured at its headquarters in Tappahannock, Virginia.
The new additions add more than 1,800 unique year/make/model applications totaling more than 59 million U.S. vehicles in operation.
The comprehensive line of Goodyear Brakes, a licensee of the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., provides premium-quality brake kits, calipers, rotors, brake pads and all the hardware for today’s most popular vehicles, from daily drivers to SUVs as well as light trucks. This line of brakes is all backed by a national warranty, decades of production experience and one of the best-known names in automotive excellence.
The new Goodyear Brakes additions cover many late-model applications, including 2019 Honda Accord, 2021 Honda HR-V, 2020 Dodge Durango, 2019 Toyota Highland4er, 2021 Ford Expedition, 2020 Lincoln Navigator, 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2020 Ford Fusion, 2021 Ford Escape and more.
The brake pads are specifically formulated to provide maximum stopping effectiveness, control and durability.
The patented Vulcan Braid Shims technology is designed to eliminate noise during operation. Goodyear Brakes brake-pad slots and chamfers match original-equipment specifications to control vibration and brake fade, according to the company.
All Goodyear Brakes brake pads have a powder-coated backing plate for maximum rust and corrosion protection.
All Goodyear Brakes brake pads meet and exceed the EPA standard for the use of copper and other materials in brake pads, surpassing the standard of < 5% by weight in 2021 and 0.5% by 2025, according to the company.
