Goodyear (GT -1.2%) pushes the tire envelope with plans to use soybean oil rather than petroleum in the production of its tires. GT says soybean oil can increase the tread life of a tire by 10% while reducing the tire maker’s use of petroleum-based oil by 7M gallons/year. If all goes well, the soybean tires could be sprouting up in tire showrooms by 2015. (also)
