The Goodyear Assurance featuring New Fuel Max Technology is a passenger all season tire. Goodyear’s Assurance Fuel Max was designed for the drivers of cars, coupes, vans and crossover vehicles looking for affordably priced tires offering long wear, wet traction and low rolling resistance as some of their top priorities. The Assurance Fuel Max is designed to provide year-round confidence in wet, dry and winter weather conditions. The Assurance Fuel Max can perform even in light snow while offering lower rolling resistance to enhance vehicle fuel economy over the tire’s lifetime.
The Assurance Fuel Max tire molds feature a low rolling resistance all season compound into a tread design featuring distinct zones. Inboard and outboard dry tread zones feature strong shoulder blocks to enhance handling in dry conditions, while a central wet tread zone features dual aqua channel grooves that evacuate water to promote traction in wet weather. A virtually continuous notched center rib combined with circumferential shoulder grooves blend dry road stability and even treadwear with traction in snowy conditions. The tire's internal structure features twin steel belts (H-speed rated sizes are reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon belt edge strips) on top of a polyester carcass that enhances ride quality.
