Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring is an asymmetric all-season tire designed for a wide range of passenger cars.
All-season Goodyear Assurance ComforTred model for premium cars. It is characterized by increased comfort and durability. The manufacturer guarantees a mileage with preservation of properties up to 80 thousand miles.
The non-directional tread is represented in the central area by three ribs, which have an integral structure and are complemented by numerous notches. This achieves good handling with a high level of grip. At the same time, excess moisture, snow, and dirt from the contact area are removed using the tubules, maintaining the adhesion at the same level.
A distinctive feature is the special arrangement of the grooves, due to which the bulk of the arising noise is suppressed. And the soft compound does not allow vibrations to pass to the car body. As a result, the tire is characterized by increased comfort, even at high speeds.

The treadmill is divided into two dedicated dry and wet areas. Dual Aquachannel grooves in the center of the tread accelerate water drainage for reliable traction on wet asphalt. Heavyweight shoulder blocks improve dry maneuverability and reduce uneven wear. Rigid central ribs are responsible for directional stability and stability when driving in a straight line.
A special layer under the tire tread absorbs vibrations and minor shock loads. Resilient construction smooths out bumps and potholes for a more comfortable ride on rough roads. The compact arrangement of the blocks helps to reduce noise and rolling resistance.
They are characterized by a high level of comfort and good handling on wet and dry asphalt.
The new model in the ComforTred range has an asymmetrical tread pattern that provides the perfect balance of performance on both dry and wet surfaces. Numerous sipes and drainage grooves ensure effective removal of water from the contact patch, thereby guaranteeing reliable grip and protection from aquaplaning. The inner layer of the ComfortLayer tread has excellent cushioning properties and provides an average of 20% softer and more comfortable ride.
Another innovation is the special DualComfort zones located in the tread and sidewalls to optimize comfort and handling. The ComfortEdge technology, applied during the tire design phase, reduces vibration and improves straight-line stability and stability when maneuvering.
