Everyone’s talking about Elon Musk and Tesla’s Cyber Truck. It’s not just its distinctive design, it’s also its impressive figures. According to Tesla, the tri-motor version of the Cyber Truck will be capable of 0-60mph in 2.9 seconds, which means its 35-inch wheels will need W, Y or Z-rated SUV tyres.
The Cyber Truck’s wheels feature neat wheel covers that appear to merge with the angular design of the tyres. However, as interesting as the Cyber Truck and its wheels are, we wanted to know what tyres it is on.
After spending far too long looking at videos of the Cyber Truck’s launch, a certain member of the WhatTyre team discovered that Goodyear is responsible for the Cyber Truck’s chunky-but-fast tyres. Look close-up and you can see the company’s wingfoot logo on the CyberTruck’s tyre sidewalls.
So does this mean that Goodyear come on all new Cyber Trucks? Not necessarily. However, tyre makers generally work closely with OEMs in the development stage, so it is very likely the two US companies are collaborating. We contacted Goodyear and Tesla for comment, but we haven’t heard back yet.
