Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring Tire Review & Rating
With an eye towards providing the best in passenger comfort, all-season traction and a long tread life, the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring has a lot going on.
Designed for drivers of sport coupes, sedans, minivans and other vehicles, Goodyear states that the ComforTred Touring provides up to 20% more cushion than other passenger tires. This is due in part to Goodyear’s Special Comfort Layer, which is basically an added layer of soft rubber, in the tread that fits between the tread and the steel belts. An outer ComfortEdge in the sidewall layer further enhances comfort by absorbing those nasty road shocks.
Delivering a smooth, quiet ride is not all that this tire is about. All-season handling and traction is improved through an asymmetric tread design that includes four wide circumferential grooves, notched intermediate ribs and independent shoulder blocks. They combine to provide enhanced dry pavement grip and improved handling. The on-center feel this tire provides is excellent.
The Inner Handling Sidewall layer is created to further increase handling and steering response at higher speeds. Another thing you’ll find is that it goes through the rain and light to moderate snow and slush better than expected. Numerous notches and tread sipes form biting edges that work together in getting through the snow and other wet road surfaces.
Inside the tread are two steel belts that are spirally wrapped with nylon to give the tire increased strength and stability at higher speeds. They also create a smoother ride and better overall tread life. Sizes are available from 15-18 inches, and speed ratings of T, H and V.
- Dry and wet surface traction is excellent
- Long lasting tread life
- Ride comfort is among the best in touring tires
- Winter weather handling and grip is above average
- Very good tread warranty
- Some have said that road noise increases as tires begin to wear out
The Goodyear ComforTred Touring is one of our better choices in all-season touring tires. We believe the combination of all-weather performance, riding comfort and the longer tread life is right up there among the likes of other tires such as the Michelin Premier A/S, Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus and Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring.
Steering response is quick and precise on this tire, and the handling and cornering stability is far above average. It feels like a high performance tire at times.
The only issue you may find on this tire would be some added road noise once it begins to wear out, but our own experience has not found that to be true. Goodyear provides an 80,000 mile tire warranty which is among the better models in this category.
Overall, we feel this is one of Goodyear’s best models in their lineup and highly recommend it.
