As luck would have it, I just got some info on these recently.  What
Goodyear did was reduce the sidewall and make it rather stiff, then they
used a moderate compound to produce a very deep tread.  These tire were not
intended for high speed use nor would I try to use them as high performance
tires.  They were intended to last a looong time, and that they  probably
will do.
