The Goodyear Assurance All Season, launched in mid-2014, target directly the value-minded car owner who is looking for an all-season. Knowing this, Goodyear has created a year-round warranty for all sedans, coupes, and minivans.
Goodyear is taking an all-season tread compound and combined it with a symmetrical tread pattern for traction all year long. The larger independent shoulder blocks of the tire are designed to provide more response on dry or wet surfaces.
Four wide annular grooves direct water to wet surfaces, and multiple nibble edges are used to facilitate traction on snow, slush, and ice. The added vultures do their job under most conditions. In deeper snow, traction can be a little more difficult.
The optimized pattern is designed to make less road noise and create a smoother ride feeling overall, which is a plus.
Inside the tire are two steel belts with a polyester cord sheath, which give the tire more strength and durability. Goodyear comes in 14-17 “sizes and all sizes come with a 65,000-mile tread warranty.
• Dry traction and handling;
• Comfortable ride;
• Low road noise.
• Wet draft could be better;
• Treadlife was less expected for some drivers.
Goodyear’s new all-season warranty is their latest entry into the basic all-season category and delivers performance that we feel is in the middle to the upper half of the class. On the positive side, dry grip and tire handling. It handles bends or ramps well on the highway.
Ride comfort is pretty good but slightly lower than the General Altimax RT43 or Continental TrueContact. The tire is also quiet. On the other hand, it is lower wet traction for its class for more energetic drivers. We’ve also heard some drivers mention fewer than expected miles in their reviews from the 65,000-mile tread warranty.
Overall, Goodyear All-Season delivers a pretty good value for money. This makes it a good option for day-to-day work – like back and forth tires.
Goodyear Assurance All-Season prices range from $ 82 and up. You can also find random discounts, discounts, coupons, and specials for this tire.
Goodyear offers a 6-year or 65,000-mile all-season warranty. There is also a one year or first 2/32 inch warranty for even tire wear.
