When Goodyear first released the original TripleTred, it completely revolutionized the market of all-season tires by providing an unprecedented level of traction on dry and wet terrain. Well, the 2nd generation version promises to push the envelope even further by improving traction as well as steering, handling, and overall ride quality.
This Goodyear Assurance TripleTred review covers everything you need to know about the tire, from its strengths and weaknesses of its sizes and specs to its pricing and warranty policy, so stick around.
Goodyear Assurance TripleTred (Our Review)
How does the Assurance TripleTred attempt to capitalize on the already impressive traction of its predecessor, exactly? Well, it utilizes unique tread zones that function in unison to deliver a level of traction that will have you treading the dry and wet terrain with complete confidence.
We have three different tread zones here that we need to talk about. Firstly, we have the Dry Zone, which is the outer layer of the three. This layer consists of large tread blocks that help improve the tire’s cornering and steering capabilities on dry terrain.
Secondly, we have the Water Zone, which, as the name implies, helps provide optimal traction on wet terrain by evacuating water away from the tread with the aid of Aqua Chutes. This layer is also responsible for reducing the risk of hydroplaning.
And lastly, we have the Ice Zone. This zone is quite impressive in the sense that it implements an interlocking tread pattern into Goodyear’s advanced tread compound. It also incorporates a continuous center rib as well as lots of biting edges that aid in improving traction in the snow and on the ice. The layer also features Goodyear’s Evolving Traction Grooves, which help the tire retain its traction as the tread starts to deteriorate.
Aside from being an impressive tire in almost every aspect, the strongest selling point of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred is its extensive 80,000-mile tread warranty.
Comfort-wise, the tire offers a pleasant ride quality. However, a lot of users complained about the road noise being a bit amplified later in the tread life, but that’s a pretty minor issue.
- Backed by an outstanding warranty policy
- Great traction on both dry and wet surfaces
- Extremely comfortable driving experience
- Superior handling and steering capabilities
- Available at a pretty reasonable price tag
- Road noise is amplified as the tread wears
