Goodyear Tire & Rubber has announced that it is investing in Cycloid Company of Cranberry Township, Penn., a producer of on-board vehicle tire inflation systems.

Under the agreement, Goodyear took a minority interest in Cycloid, which initially developed and marketed the technology for heavy-duty trucks and trailers. Together, the two companies will commercialize continuous tire pressure monitoring and maintenance systems developed by Cycloid for passenger cars, light trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles.
