"Goodyear?"
"No, it was the worst"

Good for them. Since the California courts are just a big freaking joke, this mockery has been a long time coming.

/are you allowed to get behind the wheel at all on a suspended license, even for driving lessons?

Yes.
Because they are rich enough (ironic)
Hot enough( unlikely)
And gosh, darn it, people like them (trainwrecks)

Well I know they can get away with it, that's clear. I just wondered if it was legal.

Pure awesome, I will be buying Goodyear tires for the forseeable future based solely upon this.
 
2012-09-26 08:39:25 PM
I can't believe that Goodyear is still in the passenger car/SUV business. They spend a lot on adverts, and every time I go to buy tires for my SUV, car or truck my price is $15-150 more per tire vs. similar tires from other companies (like Cooper Tire, National Tire or imports such as Yokohama, Toyo, Falken or Hakkipalitta). They are on par with Bridgestone or Continental (Japanese and German respectively). Maybe a lot of people just don't shop around or want to try a tire that's not a big name brand...

They have a lot of other business also (like tires for NASA, and other rubber products) including contract sales of tires (OEM's) and I used to buy from them when we got government pricing.

I guess it's just a "keep the name out there" thing.

"...opportunistic PR..." Just like this particular article the writer submitted.

How dare he pan Goodyear for doing something he does.

I'd wager that most name-brand tires do their business with government (which you mentioned) or are auto manufacturers OEM suppliers for new car tires. My car had Goodyear's when bought new, but I've bought pretty much the cheapest tire I can get when I've needed them.

Lindsey should take them up on the offer. It could only help, then the next time she's in an accident she can blame it on the Goodyear driving teachers.

For Pete's sake...Her name is spelled L-I-N-D-S-A-Y. Lindsay. "Lindsey" is a man's name.

i've noticed a crapload of cars now have Hankook tires. our mechanic even put them on Mrs.Kritter's Saturn. if i knew they were crap from Korea i never would have let that happen.

Some people just aren't able to drive. What's wrong with losing their license long-term, if it saves theirs, or someone else's life?
 
2012-09-27 01:01:44 AM
Presuming, of course, they aren't rich enough not to have to follow the rules.
 
2012-09-27 01:47:58 AM
I'd teach Amanda Bynes to drive. My stick
 
2012-09-27 05:55:35 AM
But is such snarky newsjacking a smart move for this iconic brand?

Seriously? Is someone afraid that they've offended these two "powerful" celebrities? It's funny and few people give a fark what those stupid whores think about anything.

Tires are not the place I'm willing to cheap out on. I don't want to find out that the off-brand has issues at 70 miles per hour.

I'm with you on this but if you're going to a reputable shop, you're going to find cheaper alternatives to the largest names and they wont fall apart. $400 for a pair of replacement GoodYears or $250 for the other ones?
(can't remember the brand, but it's a reputable one)
The other ones are working just fine and I'm not gentle on tires, or your mother.
