AKRON (Nov. 21)—Goodyear has signed an agreement that will make its commercial truck tires standard equipment on all Volvo trucks produced in North America during the next three years. The company will supply Volvo with the new-generation G395 LHS, as well as the complete Goodyear commercial portfolio of line-haul, regional and vocational products. The firm's truck tires for Volvo vehicles are made at its plants in Danville, Va., and Topeka, Kan. Goodyear also has renewed its standard pact with Mack Trucks Inc., a subsidiary of Volvo Group. The agreement will run concurrent with the Volvo pact, extending through October 2006
