Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring review
What is it?
The Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring is a grand touring all season tire designed for standard and luxury coupes, sedans, and minivans.
Strengths and weaknesses?
Very good dry condition grip and handling, as well as excellent comfort characteristics. Treadlife is also above average.
Wet and snow/winter condition performance could be improved as compared to top level grand touring all season options.
How does it compare?
In 2010 Tire Rack comparison testing, the Assurance ComforTred Touring trailed the Continental ContiProContact and Michelin Primacy MXM4 in final overall scoring. In the main, the Assurance ComforTred Touring received demerits for somewhat compromised wet condition performance as compared to contemporaries.
It's an uphill climb in the grand touring all season category right now with standouts like the Bridgestone Driveguard, Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology, and Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus available.
Users rank the Assurance ComforTred Touring eighth out of thirty-give grand touring all season tires. No doubt in part because of its age, it falls short of the top tier grand touring all season options across most evaluative categories.
- Treadlife Warranty: 6 years, 80,000 miles (T & H rated). 6 years, 70,000 miles (V rated)
- Uniformity Warranty: 1 year, first 2/32" wear
Anything else to know?
Does not offer a price advantage over the more modern and superior options mentioned.
Big treadlife warranty is a plus.
"Just ok" wet condition performance has become somewhat standard for Goodyear all season tires. There's room for improvement in this area even with current all season options like the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season. So if rain performance is a top priority, then the aforementioned alternatives from Bridgestone, Continental, and Pirelli offer a clear advantage.
