Lightyear is a tire trademark in the Cars universe. The Piston Cup Racing Series has a partnership with Lightyear, and because of this, all of its competitors are required to use Lightyear tires.
Additionally, during races, Lightyear's blimp, Al Oft, can be seen flying over the stadiums, advertising for the company.
- Lightyear is a parody of the real-life Goodyear company, which has a similar partnership with NASCAR.
- The name "Lightyear" is most likely a reference to w:c:pixar:Buzz Lightyear from the Toy Story franchise, another series created by Pixar.
- This can be further refuted by the fact that the tires have text visible on them which says, "Sector 4 Gamma Quad". This is a reference to where Buzz Lightyear is supposedly stationed in "Sector 4 of the Gamma Quadrant".
- There is a counterfeit of this brand, called "Lite Yeer", that also sells tires. It was created by Big D.
