NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Goodyear Tire & Rubber (GT) - Get Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company Report were tumbling 11.88% to $27.30 at the start of trading on Friday after the company posted soft revenue for the 2016 third quarter and lowered its guidance.

Before the market open, the Akron, OH-based tire maker reported revenue of $3.85 billion, while analysts surveyed by FactSet were projecting $3.97 billion.

Adjusted earnings of $1.17 per share beat analysts' estimates by one cent.

Goodyear now expects its full-year total operating income to be between $2.000 billion and $2.025 billion vs. its prior view for $2.100 billion to $2.200 billion.

"Our revised 2016 outlook reflects recent volatility impacting our U.S. commercial truck tire business. This near-term headwind will not have an impact on our value proposition or our ability to execute on our long-term plan," CEO Richard Kramer said in a statement.
