Goodyear Assurance All Season Tire Review & Rating

The Goodyear Assurance All-Season, released in mid-2014, is aimed squarely at the value-conscious vehicle owner looking for an all-season tire from a trusted name brand. With that in mind, Goodyear created the Assurance All-Season for all types of coupes, sedans and minivans.

Goodyear has taken an all-season tread compound and matched it to a symmetric tread pattern for dependable year-round traction. The tire’s larger independent shoulder blocks are designed to promote more responsive handling on dry or wet road surfaces.

Goodyear Assurance All-Season Tire Review

Four wide circumferential grooves channel away water on wet pavement, while multiple biting edges are used to help with grip on snow, slush and ice. The added sipes do their job in most conditions up to a point. In deeper amounts of snow you may find traction a bit more difficult.

An optimized tread pattern is designed to assist in lowering road noise and creating a smoother overall ride, which is a plus for this tire.

Inside the tire are two steel belts with a polyester cord body that add more strength and durability to the tire. Goodyear has 14-17 inch sizes available, and all sizes are covered by a 65,000 mile tread warranty.

Pros

  • Dry traction and handling
  • Comfortable ride
  • Low road noise

Cons

  • Wet traction could be better
  • Treadlife has been less than expected for some drivers

Overall Thoughts

The new Assurance All-Season from Goodyear is their latest entry into the basic all-season category and delivers performance that we feel is in the middle to upper half of the class. On the plus side is the tire’s dry traction and handling. It handles itself well when cornering or taking on/off ramps on the highway.

Ride comfort is pretty good, but a touch below that of the General Altimax RT43 or Continental TrueContact. The tire is quiet as well. On the negative side is the lower for its class wet traction for more spirited drivers. We’ve also heard a few drivers mention in reviews of less than expected miles from the 65,000 mile tread guarantee.

Overall, the Goodyear All-Season provides pretty good value for the money. It makes a nice option for an everyday back and forth to work type of tire.
