The Goodyear Assurance ComforTred, as the name implies, promises a comfortable performance and exceptional tread life. The tire is built specifically for drivers of minivans, coupes, sedans, and various other commercial vehicles.
The tire is available in a decent range of sizes and specs, ranging from 15 to 18 inches, making it an ideal fit for a lot of old and new vehicles.
This is fundamentally a passenger tire, which means that it places a huge emphasis on offering a comfortable ride quality with minimal road noise. Does it succeed in doing so? This review attempts to address that question.
Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring (Our Review)
The Assurance ComforTred Touring utilizes some of Goodyear’s latest technologies to deliver a great deal of comfort. The manufacturer actually claims that this tire is able to provide 20% more cushioning than comparable passenger tires.
One of the technologies that this tire relies on for its performance is the Special Comfort Layer technology, which comes in the form of an additional layer of soft rubber fitted between the steel belts and the tread. Further, it utilizes an external ComfortEdge sidewall that does an excellent job of absorbing road shocks for an ultra-comfortable driving experience.
Aside from being a passenger tire, the Assurance ComforTred Touring is also an all-season tire, so you should expect reliable traction, grip, and handling on both dry and wet terrain.
The tire is equipped with an asymmetrical tread compound with wide circumferential grooves for reduced risk of hydroplaning. There are also independent shoulder blocks and intermediate ribs that add to the tire’s traction and handling capabilities on both dry and wet pavement.
The Assurance ComforTred Touring is also equipped with an internal sidewall layer that boosts its steering response and handling even at higher speeds. Over and above, the tire features an abundance of tread sipes and notches that help form biting edges of improved performance on light snow and wet terrains.
As you can see, there’s a lot to like about the Assurance ComforTred, but there’s no such thing as a perfect tire. This tire does suffer from a couple of drawbacks. First of all, it gets fairly noisy later in the tread’s lifespan. And secondly, cornering capabilities could use some improvements.
- Excellent traction, handling, and braking
- Adequate performance over slight snow
- Great resistance against hydroplaning
- Extremely comfortable riding experience
- Superb 80,000-mile treadwear warranty
- Cornering can use come improvements
- Noisier performance as the tread wears
