The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. /zigman2/quotes/210067261/composite GT -3.33% said Wednesday it has commenced a $1 billion offering of high-yield 10-year and 12-year bonds. Proceeds will be used along with cash on hand to redeem in full all outstanding $1 billion 5.125% senior notes due 2023. There are 20 banks underwriting the deal, led by Citigroup and Barclays.
