All references to the Existing Guarantee and Collateral Agreement in any Credit Document or other document or instrument delivered in connection therewith shall be deemed to refer to the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement and the provisions thereof. It is understood and agreed that the Existing Guarantee and Collateral Agreement is being amended and restated by entry into this Agreement on the date hereof.

A.    The Lenders (such term and each other capitalized term used and not otherwise defined herein having the meaning assigned to it in Article I) have agreed to extend credit to the Company on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Credit Agreement. The obligations of the Lenders to extend such credit are conditioned upon the execution and delivery of this Agreement by the Company, the Subsidiary Grantors and the Subsidiary Guarantors. The Subsidiary Grantors and Subsidiary Guarantors are subsidiaries of the Company, have derived and will derive substantial benefits from the extension of credit to the Company pursuant to the Credit Agreement and are willing to execute and deliver this Agreement in order to induce the Lenders to continue to extend such credit.

B.    The Obligations have been designated as “Designated Senior Obligations” or otherwise constitute “Senior Obligations” under the Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement, and the Liens securing the Obligations are accordingly senior to the Liens securing the Junior Obligations (as defined in the Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement) on the terms set forth in the Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement.

C.     The Obligations constitute “Second Lien Obligations” under the Lenders Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement, and the Liens securing the Obligations are accordingly junior to the Liens securing the First Lien Obligations (as defined in the Lenders Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement) on the terms set forth in the Lenders Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement.

Accordingly, the parties hereto agree as follows:

REFERENCE IS MADE TO THE LENDERS LIEN SUBORDINATION AND INTERCREDITOR AGREEMENT DATED AS OF APRIL 8, 2005, AMONG JPMORGAN CHASE BANK, N.A., AS COLLATERAL AGENT FOR THE FIRST LIEN SECURED PARTIES REFERRED TO THEREIN; THE COLLATERAL AGENT; THE COMPANY; AND THE SUBSIDIARIES OF THE COMPANY NAMED THEREIN. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION CONTAINED HEREIN, THIS AGREEMENT, THE LIENS CREATED HEREBY AND THE RIGHTS, REMEDIES, DUTIES AND OBLIGATIONS PROVIDED FOR HEREIN ARE SUBJECT IN ALL RESPECTS TO THE PROVISIONS OF THE LENDERS LIEN SUBORDINATION AND INTERCREDITOR AGREEMENT AND, TO THE EXTENT PROVIDED THEREIN, THE FIRST LIEN OBLIGATIONS SECURITY DOCUMENTS (AS DEFINED IN THE LENDERS LIEN SUBORDINATION AND INTERCREDITOR AGREEMENT). IN THE EVENT OF ANY CONFLICT OR INCONSISTENCY BETWEEN THE PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THE LENDERS LIEN SUBORDINATION AND INTERCREDITOR AGREEMENT, THE PROVISIONS OF THE LENDERS LIEN SUBORDINATION AND INTERCREDITOR AGREEMENT SHALL CONTROL.

Section 2.03    No Limitations. (a)Except for termination of a Guarantor’s obligations hereunder as expressly provided in Section 12.13, the obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, impairment or termination for any reason, including any claim of waiver, release, surrender, alteration or compromise, and shall not be subject to any defense or set-off, counterclaim, recoupment or termination whatsoever by reason of the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of the Obligations or otherwise. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall not be discharged or impaired or otherwise affected by (i) the failure of the Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party to assert any claim or demand or to enforce any right or remedy under the provisions of any Credit Document or otherwise; (ii) any rescission, waiver, amendment or modification of, or any release from any of the terms or provisions of, any Credit Document or any other agreement, including with respect to any other Guarantor under this Agreement; (iii) the release of any security held by the Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party for the Obligations; (iv) any default, failure or delay, wilful or otherwise, in the performance of the Obligations; or (v) any other act or omission that may or might in any manner or to any extent vary the risk of such Guarantor or otherwise operate as a discharge of such Guarantor as a matter of law or equity (other than the indefeasible payment in full in cash of all the Obligations).

(b)    To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each Guarantor waives any defense based on or arising out of any defense of the Company or any other Credit Party or the unenforceability of the Obligations or any part thereof from any cause, or the cessation from any cause of the liability of the Company or any other Credit Party, other than the indefeasible payment in full in cash of all the Obligations.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each Guarantor waives any defense arising out of any such election even though such election operates, pursuant to applicable law, to impair or to extinguish any right of reimbursement or subrogation or other right or remedy of such Guarantor against the Company or any other Credit Party, as the case may be, or any security.

Section 2.04    Reinstatement. Each of the Guarantors agrees that its guarantee hereunder shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if

Upon payment by any Guarantor of any sums to the Collateral Agent as provided above, all rights of such Guarantor against the Company or any other Credit Party arising as a result thereof by way of right of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement, indemnity or otherwise shall in all respects be subordinate to the Obligations of the Company or such Credit Party on the terms set forth in Article XI.

Section 2.06    Information. Each Guarantor assumes all responsibility for being and keeping itself informed of the Company’s and each other Credit Party’s financial condition and assets, and of all other circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of the Obligations and the nature, scope and extent of the risks that such Guarantor assumes and incurs hereunder, and agrees that none of the Collateral Agent or the other Secured Parties will have any duty to advise such Guarantor of information known to it or any of them regarding such circumstances or risks.

(c)    Each Grantor (either itself or through its licensees or sublicensees) will, for each work covered by a Copyright constituting Material Intellectual Property, continue to publish, reproduce, display, adopt and distribute the work with appropriate copyright notice consistent with good business judgment to establish and preserve its rights under applicable copyright laws.

(d)    Each Grantor shall notify the Collateral Agent promptly if it knows or has reason to know that any Patent, Trademark or Copyright constituting Material Intellectual Property may become abandoned, lost or dedicated to the public, or of any materially adverse determination or development (including the institution of, or any such determination or development in, any proceeding in the United States Patent and Trademark Office, United States Copyright Office or any court or similar office of any country) regarding such Grantor’s ownership of any Patent, Trademark or Copyright, its right to register the same, or its right to keep and maintain the same; provided that such notification need not be given if such impairment of such Intellectual Property is not material viewed against the Material Intellectual Property as a whole.

(e)    Each Grantor will take all steps consistent with good business judgment that are consistent with the practice in any proceeding before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, United States Copyright Office or any office or agency in any political subdivision of the United States or in any other country or any political subdivision thereof, to maintain and pursue each application relating to the Patents, Trademarks and/or Copyrights constituting Material Intellectual Property (and to obtain the relevant grant or registration) and to maintain each issued Patent and each registration of the Trademarks and Copyrights constituting Material Intellectual Property, including

timely filings of applications for renewal, affidavits of use, affidavits of incontestability and payment of maintenance fees, and, if consistent with good business judgment, to initiate opposition, interference and cancelation proceedings against third parties.

(f)    Upon and during the continuance of an Event of Default, each Grantor shall endeavor in good faith to obtain all requisite consents or approvals by the licensor of each Copyright License, Patent License or Trademark License to effect the assignment of all such Grantor’s right, title and interest thereunder to the Collateral Agent or its designee.

Section 5.07    Lockbox System. (a) The Grantors agree, at all times when the First Lien Agreement shall remain in effect, to comply, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, with the requirements of Section 5.07 of the First Lien Guarantee and Collateral Agreement, and compliance with such requirements shall, at all times when the First Lien Agreement shall remain in effect, be deemed to satisfy the requirements of paragraph (b) below, notwithstanding anything in such paragraph (b) to the contrary.

(b)    The Grantors shall maintain, subject to the control of the Collateral Agent pursuant to the Account Control Agreements, a system of lockboxes and related Deposit Accounts (the “Lockbox System”). Each Grantor agrees that it shall have no Deposit Accounts other than (A) Deposit Accounts in the Lockbox System, (B) Excluded Operating Accounts and (C) Local Collection Accounts. Each Grantor further agrees (i) to cause at all times to be in effect with respect to each Deposit Account Institution at which any Deposit Account (other than an Excluded Operating Account or a Local Collection Account) is maintained an Account Control Agreement with respect to each such Deposit Account, (ii) to notify and direct promptly each Account Debtor and every other Person obligated to make payments on Accounts or in respect of any Inventory to make all such payments directly to one or more Deposit Accounts in the Lockbox System (or, in the case of Accounts or Inventory of the Company’s retail or Wingfoot divisions, Local Collection Accounts) or related lockboxes, (iii) to use all reasonable efforts to cause each such Account Debtor and other Person to make all payments with respect to Accounts and Inventory directly to one or more Deposit Accounts in the Lockbox System (or, in the case of Accounts or Inventory of the Company’s retail or Wingfoot divisions, Local Collection Accounts) or related lockboxes, (iv) promptly to deposit all payments received by it on account of Accounts and Inventory, whether in the form of cash, checks, notes, drafts, bills of exchange, money orders or otherwise, in one or more Deposit Accounts in the Lockbox System (or, in the case of Accounts or Inventory of the Company’s retail or Wingfoot divisions, Local Collection Accounts) or related lockboxes in the form in which received (but with any endorsements of such Grantor necessary for deposit or collection), (v) to maintain at all times a Collateral Proceeds Account in the United States, a U.S. dollar Collateral Proceeds Account in Canada and a Canadian dollar Collateral Proceeds Account in Canada, in each case on terms reasonably satisfactory to the Collateral Agent, (vi) to cause all funds on deposit in Local Collection Accounts to be remitted periodically, but in no event less frequently than weekly, to a Deposit Account in the Lockbox System which is subject to an Account Control Agreement, and (vii) to maintain in effect agreements

with the applicable Deposit Account Institutions under which amounts on deposit in each Deposit Account (other than Excluded Operating Accounts and Local Collection Accounts) located in the United States and in Canada will not less often than weekly be paid to the Collateral Agent for deposit in same day funds in the Collateral Proceeds Account located in the United States or in the Collateral Proceeds Account in Canada; provided, that so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Grantors shall be permitted to retain in the Deposit Accounts (including Local Collection Accounts, but excluding (I) Excluded Operating Accounts and (II) each Collateral Proceeds Account) which are subject to clauses (vi) and (vii) above, an amount, in the aggregate for all such Deposit Accounts, not to exceed $10,000,000, which amount is to be calculated following the sweep of any such Deposit Account on each date for which the standing instructions to sweep such Deposit Account are applicable. So long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Collateral Agent shall promptly (and no less frequently than each Business Day) remit any funds on deposit in each Collateral Proceeds Account to one or more accounts of the Company that have been designated by the Company. Effective upon notice to the Company after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, each Collateral Proceeds Account and each Deposit Account (other than Excluded Operating Accounts and Local Collection Accounts) will, without further action on the part of any Grantor or the Collateral Agent, convert into a closed lockbox account under the sole dominion and control of the Collateral Agent in which all funds are held subject to the rights of the Collateral Agent hereunder. Without the prior written consent of the Collateral Agent, no Grantor shall, in a manner adverse to the Secured Parties, change the general instructions given to Account Debtors in respect of payments to be deposited in the Lockbox System. Each Grantor irrevocably authorizes the Collateral Agent, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, to deliver a Control Notice under each Account Control Agreement. The Collateral Agent agrees with each Grantor that the Collateral Agent shall not give any instructions pursuant to any Account Control Agreement terminating such Account Control Agreement or the right of such Grantor to make withdrawals from any Deposit Account in the Lockbox System unless an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing or, after giving effect to any withdrawal, would occur.

Section 5.08    Insurance. Each Grantor shall cause the Collateral Agent to be named as loss payee on all property insurance maintained in respect of property subject to the Mortgages.

Section 5.09    Securities Accounts. If any securities, whether certificated or uncertificated, or other investment property now or hereafter acquired by any Grantor are held by such Grantor or its nominee in an account with a securities intermediary, such Grantor shall promptly notify the Collateral Agent thereof and, at the Collateral Agent’s request and option, pursuant to an agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, cause such securities intermediary to agree to comply with entitlement orders or other instructions from the Collateral Agent to such securities intermediary as to such security entitlements without further consent of any Grantor, such nominee, or any other Person (each such agreement, a “Securities Account Control Agreement”). The Collateral Agent agrees with each of the Grantors that the Collateral Agent shall not give any such entitlement orders or instructions or directions to any such issuer or securities intermediary unless an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.

ARTICLE VI.

Other Pledges, Mortgages and Security Interests

Section 6.01    Other Security Documents. In addition to the security interests created under Articles IV and V, the parties acknowledge that:

(a)    The applicable Grantors and the Collateral Agent are parties to the Foreign Pledge Agreements listed in Schedule II under which such Grantors have pledged (and the applicable Grantors may in the future enter into additional Foreign Pledge Agreements under which such Grantors may pledge) Equity Interests in Foreign Subsidiaries owned by them on a senior basis to secure the Obligations.

(b)    The Grantors and the Collateral Agent are parties to the Mortgages as listed in Schedule III, under which they have mortgaged the real properties and interests in the Mortgaged Properties to secure the Obligations.

Section 6.02    Other Security Documents Subject to This Agreement. (a) The parties hereto and to the Other Security Documents agree that they will observe and be bound by, and that the Other Security Documents will in all respects be subject to, the following provisions: (i) to the extent applicable, the provisions of Section 5.01(c) (limiting the amount of the obligations secured by the Indenture Properties owned by the Company); (ii) the provisions of Sections 7.02 and 7.03 (governing the exercise of remedies under the Other Security Documents and the distribution of the proceeds realized from the exercise of remedies under the Security Documents); (iii) the provisions of Articles IX and X (relating to the duties and responsibilities of the Collateral Agent); and (iv) the provisions of Section 12.13 (providing for releases of Guarantees of and Collateral securing the Obligations).

(b)    Each of the Mortgages (other than any Mortgage that sets forth in full the provisions referred to in clauses (i) through (iv) of paragraph (a) above) contains or, with respect to any future mortgage, shall contain a provision substantially to the

effect set forth below (in the language of such Mortgage) and satisfactory to the Collateral Agent and its counsel:

“THIS AGREEMENT AND THE PLEDGES, SECURITY INTERESTS AND OTHER LIENS AND CHARGES CREATED HEREBY ARE SUBJECT IN ALL RESPECTS TO THE PROVISIONS OF THE SECOND LIEN GUARANTEE AND COLLATERAL AGREEMENT DATED AS OF APRIL 8, 2005, AS AMENDED, AMONG THE GOODYEAR TIRE & RUBBER COMPANY, CERTAIN OF ITS SUBSIDIARIES AND DEUTSCHE BANK TRUST COMPANY AMERICAS, AS COLLATERAL AGENT, AND ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT THAT IS INCONSISTENT WITH THE PROVISIONS OF SUCH SECOND LIEN GUARANTEE AND COLLATERAL AGREEMENT SHALL BE DEEMED FOR ALL PURPOSES TO HAVE BEEN AMENDED TO CONFORM IN ALL RESPECTS TO SUCH PROVISIONS.”

ARTICLE VII.

Remedies

Section 7.01    Remedies Upon Default. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default under and as defined in the Credit Agreement, to the extent permitted by law, and subject to the provisions of the Lender Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement, (a) the Collateral Agent may demand that each Grantor deliver each item of Collateral owned or held by it to the Collateral Agent, and each Grantor agrees so to deliver all such Collateral, and (b) the Collateral Agent shall have the right to take any of or all the following actions at the same or different times with respect to any Collateral: (i) with respect to any Collateral consisting of Intellectual Property, on demand, to cause its security interest in such Collateral to become an assignment, transfer and conveyance of any of or all such Collateral by the applicable Grantors to the Collateral Agent, or to grant any license or sublicense, whether general, special or otherwise, and whether on an exclusive or nonexclusive basis, with respect to any such Collateral throughout the world on such terms and conditions and in such manner as the Collateral Agent shall determine (other than in violation of any then-existing licensing arrangements to the extent that waivers cannot be obtained), and (ii) with or without legal process and with or without prior notice or demand for performance, to take possession of the Collateral and without liability for trespass to enter any premises where the Collateral may be located for the purpose of taking possession of or removing the Collateral and, generally, to exercise any and all rights afforded to a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code or other applicable law. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Grantor agrees that the Collateral Agent shall have the right, subject to the mandatory requirements of applicable law and to the provisions of the Lender Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement, to sell or otherwise dispose of all or any part of the Collateral at a public or private sale or at any broker’s board or on any securities exchange, for cash, upon credit or for future delivery as the Collateral Agent shall deem appropriate. The Collateral Agent shall be authorized at any such sale of securities (if it deems it advisable to do so) to restrict the prospective bidders or purchasers to Persons who will represent and agree that they are purchasing the Collateral for their own account for investment and not with a view to the distribution

22


or sale thereof, and upon consummation of any such sale the Collateral Agent shall have the right to assign, transfer and deliver to the purchaser or purchasers thereof the Collateral so sold. Each such purchaser at any sale of Collateral shall (to the extent permitted by law) hold the property sold absolutely, free from any claim or right on the part of any Grantor, and each Grantor hereby waives (to the extent permitted by law) all rights of redemption, stay and appraisal which such Grantor now has or may at any time in the future have under any rule of law or statute now existing or hereafter enacted.

In the case of any Collateral that constitutes Article 9 Collateral, the Collateral Agent shall give the applicable Grantors 10 days’ prior written notice (which each Grantor agrees is reasonable notice within the meaning of Section 9-611 of the New York UCC or its equivalent in other jurisdictions) of the Collateral Agent’s intention to make any sale of Collateral. Such notice, in the case of a public sale, shall state the time and place for such sale and, in the case of a sale at a broker’s board or on a securities exchange, shall state the board or exchange at which such sale is to be made and the day on which the Collateral, or portion thereof, will first be offered for sale at such board or exchange. Any such public sale shall be held at such time or times within ordinary business hours and at such place or places as the Collateral Agent may fix and state in the notice (if any) of such sale. At any such sale, the Collateral, or portion thereof, to be sold may be sold in one lot as an entirety or in separate parcels, as the Collateral Agent may (in its sole and absolute discretion) determine. The Collateral Agent shall not be obligated to make any sale of any Collateral if it shall determine not to do so, regardless of the fact that notice of sale of such Collateral shall have been given. The Collateral Agent may, without notice or publication, adjourn any public or private sale or cause the same to be adjourned from time to time by announcement at the time and place fixed for sale, and such sale may, without further notice, be made at the time and place to which the same was so adjourned. In case any sale of all or any part of the Collateral is made on credit or for future delivery, the Collateral so sold may be retained by the Collateral Agent until the sale price is paid by the purchaser or purchasers thereof, but the Collateral Agent shall not incur any liability in case any such purchaser or purchasers shall fail to take up and pay for the Collateral so sold and, in case of any such failure, such Collateral may be sold again upon like notice. At any public (or, to the extent permitted by law, private) sale made pursuant to this Agreement, any Secured Party may bid for or purchase, free (to the extent permitted by law) from any right of redemption, stay, valuation or appraisal on the part of any Grantor (all said rights being also hereby waived and released to the extent permitted by law), the Collateral or any part thereof offered for sale and may make payment on account thereof by using any claim then due and payable to such Secured Party from any Grantor as a credit against the purchase price, and such Secured Party may, upon compliance with the terms of sale, hold, retain and dispose of such property without further accountability to any Grantor therefor (to the extent permitted by law). For purposes hereof, a written agreement to purchase any Collateral or portion thereof shall be treated as a sale thereof; the Collateral Agent shall be free to carry out such sale pursuant to such agreement and no Grantor shall be entitled to the return of the Collateral or any portion thereof subject thereto, notwithstanding the fact that after the Collateral Agent shall have entered into such an agreement all Events of Default shall have been remedied and the Obligations paid in full. As an alternative to

exercising the power of sale herein conferred upon it, the Collateral Agent may proceed by a suit or suits at law or in equity to foreclose this Agreement and to sell the Collateral or any portion thereof pursuant to a judgment or decree of a court or courts having competent jurisdiction or pursuant to a proceeding by a court-appointed receiver. Any sale pursuant to the provisions of this Section shall be deemed to conform to the commercially reasonable standards as provided in Section 9-610(b) of the New York UCC or its equivalent in other jurisdictions.

Section 7.02    Exercise of Remedies under Other Security Documents. The Collateral Agent shall also have, subject to the provisions of the Lender Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement, the right to exercise remedies provided for in each Other Security Document upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default.

Section 7.03    Application of Proceeds. (a)Unless otherwise required by applicable law, the Collateral Agent shall, subject to the provisions of the Lender Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement, apply the proceeds of the collection or sale of any Collateral, including any Collateral consisting of cash, as follows:

FIRST, to the payment of all costs and expenses incurred by the Collateral Agent in connection with such collection or sale or otherwise in connection with this Agreement or any other Credit Document, or otherwise in connection with any of the Obligations, including all court costs and the fees and expenses of its agents and legal counsel, the repayment of all advances made by the Collateral Agent hereunder or under any other Credit Document on behalf of any Grantor and any other costs or expenses incurred in connection with the exercise of any right or remedy hereunder or under any other Credit Document at the direction or for the benefit of holders of the Obligations;

SECOND, to the payment of all such Obligations as shall be owed to the Administrative Agent (in such capacity) and all such Obligations for fees, indemnification or the reimbursement of expenses as shall be owed to any Issuing Bank;

THIRD, to the payment in full of the other Obligations secured by such Collateral, ratably in accordance with the amounts of such Obligations on the date of such application;

FOURTH, to the Junior Collateral Agents (as such term is defined in the Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement) for application as provided in the Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement; and

FIFTH, if there shall be no outstanding “Junior Obligations”, as defined in the Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement, or if the Collateral Agent shall be advised by each Junior Collateral Agent (as such term is defined in the Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement) that there are no persons entitled under the documents governing “Junior Obligations”, as defined in the Lien

Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement, to receive such proceeds or cash, to the applicable Grantors, their successors or assigns, or as a court of competent jurisdiction may otherwise direct.

The Collateral Agent shall have absolute discretion as to the time of application of any such proceeds, moneys or balances in accordance with this Agreement. Upon any sale of Collateral by the Collateral Agent (including pursuant to a power of sale granted by statute or under a judicial proceeding), the receipt of the Collateral Agent or of the officer making the sale shall be a sufficient discharge to the purchaser or purchasers of the Collateral so sold and such purchaser or purchasers shall not be obligated to see to the application of any part of the purchase money paid over to the Collateral Agent or such officer or be answerable in any way for the misapplication thereof. Notwithstanding the provisions of clause THIRD above, any Article 9 Collateral consisting of cash deposited to collateralize Letter of Credit reimbursement obligations pursuant to the Credit Agreement will be applied first against such reimbursement obligations.

Section 7.04    Grant of License to Use Intellectual Property. (a)Each Grantor hereby grants to the Collateral Agent, to the extent necessary to enable the Collateral Agent to exercise rights and remedies under this Agreement and the Other Security Documents at such time as the Collateral Agent shall be lawfully entitled to exercise such rights and remedies, an irrevocable, nonexclusive license (exercisable without payment of royalty or other compensation to the Grantors) to use, license or sublicense any Intellectual Property now owned or hereafter acquired by such Grantor, and wherever the same may be located, including in such license reasonable access to all media in which any of the licensed items may be recorded or stored and to all computer software and programs used for the compilation or printout thereof, to the extent and only to the extent such license would not violate or result in a default under any license or other agreement, whether express or implied, between the Grantor and any Person other than a Wholly Owned Subsidiary. The rights of the Collateral Agent under such license may be exercised, at the option of the Collateral Agent, solely upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default; provided that any license, sublicense or other transaction entered into by the Collateral Agent in accordance herewith shall be binding upon the Grantors notwithstanding any subsequent cure of any Event of Default.

(b)    Notwithstanding any other provision contained in this Agreement, any security interest granted hereunder in any Collateral consisting of Intellectual Property to secure the Obligations shall be subject to the license granted under the First Lien Guarantee and Collateral Agreement, as such license may be exercised for the benefit of the holders of any Obligations (as defined in the First Lien Collateral Agreement), and any sale or transfer of Collateral consisting of Intellectual Property upon any exercise of remedies under this Agreement shall be made expressly subject to such license.

Section 7.05    Securities Act. In view of the position of the Grantors in relation to the Pledged Collateral, or because of other current or future circumstances, a question may arise under the Securities Act of 1933, as now or hereafter in effect, or any

 

THE GOODYEAR TIRE & RUBBER COMPANY

SECOND LIEN GUARANTEE AND COLLATERAL AGREEMENT

25


similar statute hereafter enacted analogous in purpose or effect (such Act and any such similar statute as from time to time in effect being called the “Federal Securities Laws”) with respect to any disposition of the Pledged Collateral permitted hereunder. Each Grantor understands that compliance with the Federal Securities Laws might very strictly limit the course of conduct of the Collateral Agent if the Collateral Agent were to attempt to dispose of all or any part of the Pledged Collateral, and might also limit the extent to which or the manner in which any subsequent transferee of any Pledged Collateral could dispose of the same. Similarly, there may be other legal restrictions or limitations affecting the Collateral Agent in any attempt to dispose of all or part of the Pledged Collateral under applicable Blue Sky or other state securities laws or similar laws analogous in purpose or effect. Each Grantor recognizes that in light of such restrictions and limitations the Collateral Agent may, with respect to any sale of the Pledged Collateral, limit the purchasers to those who will agree, among other things, to acquire such Pledged Collateral for their own account, for investment, and not with a view to the distribution or resale thereof. Each Grantor acknowledges and agrees that in light of such restrictions and limitations, the Collateral Agent, in its sole and absolute discretion (a) may proceed to make such a sale whether or not a registration statement for the purpose of registering such Pledged Collateral or part thereof shall have been filed under the Federal Securities Laws and (b) may approach and negotiate with a single potential purchaser to effect such sale. Each Grantor acknowledges and agrees that any such sale might result in prices and other terms less favorable than if such sale were a public sale without such restrictions. In the event of any such sale, the Collateral Agent shall incur no responsibility or liability for selling all or any part of the Pledged Collateral at a price that the Collateral Agent, in its sole and absolute discretion, may in good faith deem reasonable under the circumstances, notwithstanding the possibility that a substantially higher price might have been realized if the sale were deferred until after registration as aforesaid or if more than a single purchaser were approached. The provisions of this Section will apply notwithstanding the existence of a public or private market upon which the quotations or sales prices may exceed substantially the price at which the Collateral Agent sells.

Section 7.06    Registration. Each Grantor agrees that, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, if for any reason the Collateral Agent desires to sell any of the Pledged Collateral at a public sale, it will, at any time and from time to time, upon the written request of the Collateral Agent, use its best efforts to take or to cause the issuer of such Pledged Collateral to take such action and prepare, distribute and/or file such documents, as are required or advisable in the reasonable opinion of counsel for the Collateral Agent to permit the public sale of such Pledged Collateral under applicable law. Each Grantor further agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Collateral Agent, each other Secured Party, any underwriter and their respective officers, directors, affiliates and controlling persons from and against all loss, liability, expenses, costs of counsel (including, without limitation, reasonable fees and expenses of the Collateral Agent’s legal counsel), and claims (including the costs of investigation) that they may incur insofar as such loss, liability, expense or claim arises out of or is based upon any alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto) or in any notification or

offering circular relating to the offering for sale of any Pledged Collateral, or arises out of or is based upon any alleged omission to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements in any thereof not misleading, except insofar as the same may have been caused by any untrue statement or omission based upon information furnished in writing to such Grantor or the issuer of such Pledged Collateral by the Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party expressly for use therein. Each Grantor further agrees, upon such written request referred to above, to use its best efforts to qualify, file or register, or cause the issuer of such Pledged Collateral to qualify, file or register, any of the Pledged Collateral under the Blue Sky or other securities laws of such jurisdictions as may be requested by the Collateral Agent and keep effective, or cause to be kept effective, all such qualifications, filings or registrations. Each Grantor will bear all costs and expenses of carrying out its obligations under this Section. Each Grantor acknowledges that there is no adequate remedy at law for failure by it to comply with the provisions of this Section and that such failure would not be adequately compensable in damages, and therefore agrees that its agreements contained in this Section may be specifically enforced.

ARTICLE VIII.

Indemnity, Subrogation and Subordination

Section 8.01    Indemnity and Subrogation. In addition to all such rights of indemnity and subrogation as the Grantors and Guarantors may have under applicable law (but subject to Section 8.03), the Company agrees that (a) in the event a payment shall be made by any Guarantor under this Agreement in respect of an Obligation of the Company or of any Subsidiary other than such Guarantor or one of its Subsidiaries, the Company shall indemnify such Guarantor for the full amount of such payment and such Guarantor shall be subrogated to the rights of the Person to whom such payment shall have been made to the extent of such payment and (b) in the event any assets of any Grantor shall be sold pursuant to this Agreement or any Other Security Document to satisfy in whole or in part an Obligation of the Company or of any Subsidiary other than such Grantor or one of its Subsidiaries, the Company shall indemnify such Grantor in an amount equal to the greater of the book value or the fair market value of the assets so sold.

Section 8.02    Contribution and Subrogation. Each Guarantor and Grantor, other than the Company, that has guaranteed, or granted Liens to secure, the Obligations (a “Contributing Party”) agrees (subject to Section 8.03) that, in the event (a) a payment shall be made by any other Guarantor (other than the Company) hereunder in respect of any Obligations or (b) assets of any other Grantor (other than the Company) shall be sold pursuant to any Security Document to satisfy any Obligations, and such other Guarantor or Grantor (the “Claiming Party”) shall not have been fully indemnified by the Company as provided in Section 8.01, the Contributing Party shall indemnify the Claiming Party in an amount equal to the amount of such payment or the greater of the book value or the fair market value of such assets, as the case may be, in each case

multiplied by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the net worth of the Contributing Party and the denominator shall be the aggregate net worth of all the Guarantors and Grantors, other than the Company. For the purposes of the previous sentence, the net worth of each Guarantor and Grantor shall be determined on the date hereof (or, in the case of any Guarantor or Grantor becoming a Guarantor or Grantor after the date hereof, the date on which such Guarantor or Grantor shall have become a Guarantor or Grantor). Any Contributing Party making any payment to a Claiming Party pursuant to this Section shall be subrogated to the rights of such Claiming Party under Section 8.01 to the extent of such payment.

Section 8.03    Subordination. (a)Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, all rights of the Guarantors and Grantors under Sections 8.01 and 8.02 and all other rights of indemnity, contribution or subrogation under applicable law or otherwise shall be fully subordinated to the indefeasible payment in full in cash of the Obligations, and no Guarantor or Grantor shall seek to enforce any of such rights until the Obligations have been paid in full. No failure on the part of the Company or any other Guarantor or Grantor to make the payments required by Sections 8.01 and 8.02 (or any other payments required under applicable law or otherwise) shall in any respect limit the obligations and liabilities of any Guarantor or Grantor with respect to its obligations hereunder, and each Guarantor and Grantor shall remain liable for the full amount of the obligations of such Guarantor or Grantor hereunder.

ARTICLE IX.

Duties of Collateral Agent

Section 9.01    Actions Under This Agreement. (a)The Collateral Agent shall not be obligated to take any action under this Agreement or any Other Security Document except for the performance of such duties as are specifically set forth herein and therein. Subject to the provisions of Article X of this Agreement and to the succeeding provisions of this Section, the Collateral Agent shall take such actions, and only such actions, under this Agreement and the Other Security Documents with respect to any Collateral as are requested by the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Majority Lenders, under the Credit Agreement and as are not inconsistent with or contrary to the provisions of this Agreement, any Other Security Document, the Lender Lien Subordination and Intercreditor Agreement or the Credit Agreement, as well as ministerial and/or administrative actions required or permitted by this Agreement and the Other Security Documents.

(b)    THE COLLATERAL AGENT HAS CONSENTED TO SERVE AS COLLATERAL AGENT HEREUNDER ON THE EXPRESS UNDERSTANDING, AND THE HOLDERS OF THE OBLIGATIONS, BY ACCEPTING THE BENEFITS OF THIS AGREEMENT, SHALL BE DEEMED TO HAVE AGREED, THAT THE COLLATERAL AGENT SHALL HAVE NO DUTY AND SHALL OWE NO OBLIGATION OR RESPONSIBILITY (FIDUCIARY OR OTHERWISE) TO THE

HOLDERS OF ANY OBLIGATIONS, OTHER THAN THE DUTY TO PERFORM ITS EXPRESS OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THEIR TERMS, SUBJECT IN ALL EVENTS TO THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE X AND THE OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT LIMITING THE RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY OF THE COLLATERAL AGENT HEREUNDER.

ARTICLE X.

Concerning the Collateral Agent

Section 10.01    Limitations on Responsibility of Collateral Agent. The Collateral Agent shall not be responsible in any manner whatsoever for the correctness of any recitals, statements, representations or warranties contained herein or in any Other Security Document. The Collateral Agent makes no representation as to the value or condition of the Collateral or any part thereof, as to the title of any Grantor to the Collateral, as to the security afforded by this Agreement or any Other Security Document or as to the validity, execution, enforceability, legality or sufficiency of this Agreement or any Other Security Document, and the Collateral Agent shall incur no liability or responsibility in respect of any such matters. The Collateral Agent shall not be responsible for insuring the Collateral, for the payment of taxes, charges, assessments or Liens upon the Collateral or otherwise for the maintenance of the Collateral, except as provided in the immediately following sentence when the Collateral Agent has possession or control of the Collateral.

All communications and notices hereunder to any Grantor or Guarantor other than the Company shall be given to it in care of the Company as provided in the Credit Agreement.

Section 12.02    Waivers; Amendment. (a)No failure or delay by the Collateral Agent or any Secured Party in exercising any right or power hereunder or under any other Credit Document shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the Collateral Agent and the Secured Parties hereunder and under the other Credit Documents are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies that they would otherwise have. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement or consent to any departure by any Credit Party therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by paragraph (b) of this Section, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, no extension of credit by any Secured Party under the Credit Agreement or otherwise shall be construed as a waiver of any default hereunder, regardless of whether the Collateral Agent or any Secured Party may have had notice or knowledge of such default at the time. No notice or demand on any Credit Party in any case shall entitle such Credit Party to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances.

(b)    Neither this Agreement nor any provision hereof may be waived, amended or modified except pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Collateral Agent and the Credit Party or Credit Parties with respect to which such waiver, amendment or modification is to apply, subject to any consent required under the Credit Agreement.

(c)    The provisions of this Section shall remain operative and in full force and effect regardless of the termination of this Agreement or any other Credit Document, the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of any of the Obligations, the invalidity or unenforceability of any term or provision of this Agreement or any other Credit Document, or any investigation made by or on behalf of the Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party.

This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall constitute an original but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract, and shall become effective as provided in this Section.

Section 12.07    Severability.

Section 12.08    Right of Set-Off. Without limitation to the provisions of Section 5.07, if an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing and the Loans shall have become due and payable pursuant to Article VII of the Credit Agreement, each Lender and each of its Affiliates is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) at any time held and other obligations at any time owing by such Lender or Affiliate to or for the credit or the account of any Credit Party against any of and all the obligations of such Credit Party now or hereafter existing under this Agreement or any other Credit Document and owed to such Lender, irrespective of whether or not such Lender shall have made any demand under this Agreement and although such obligations may be unmatured. The rights of each Lender under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of set-off) that such Lender may have.
