Backed by more than 30 years of innovation and performance, Goodyear all-season tires are a safe choice for most drivers. But to be totally satisfied with your purchase, you need to know what performance features you’re paying for.
Today’s post lists the top-3 performance features Goodyear all-seasons have to offer. Read on or contact your local TIRECRAFT to speak with a Goodyear all-season tire specialist straight away.
Optimized Rolling Resistance And Fuel Economy With Goodyear All-Season Tires
The term “rolling resistance” refers to the amount of friction that’s created when a tire rolls on a flat surface. To better understand this term, think about the difference in effort when walking on a sandy beach versus a boardwalk—on the beach, a lot of energy is consumed by the friction between shifting grains of sand, so it’s a lot more work. Likewise, driving on tires with greater rolling resistance increases the amount of “energy” (i.e. fuel) needed to get where you want to go.
Tire research has determined that the majority of rolling resistance is caused by the tread design, depth, width, and compound. Thus, by altering the recipe of a tread compound, different levels of friction within the tread rubber can be created.
Enter the Goodyear Assurance FuelMax All-Season Tire, with its reduced rolling resistance and enhanced fuel economy. Goodyear all-season tire research indicates that Assurance FuelMax tires reduce rolling resistance by up to 27%, translating to up to 4,000km worth of gas over the life of 4 tires. So while they do cost a bit more—around $190 per tire in most shops—they really pay off over the long term, especially if you’re using winter tires in the colder months.
Goodyear All-Season Tires “Run On Flat” To Keep Your Safe And Help You Save
Goodyear’s “Run On Flat” all-season tire line is designed to keep drivers safe year-round, even in the event of serious tire damage at high speeds. Using their patented “Extended Mobility Technology” (EMT), Goodyear “Run On Flat” all-seasons continue to perform even while deflating, and even once fully deflated. Goodyear all-season tires like the Eagle LS-2 allow you to drive at a top speed of 80 kph for up to 80km so that you can reach a safe place or TIRECRAFT service center. Additionally, by eliminating the need for a spare tire, this Goodyear all-season tire technology saves you space, tire cost, and weight.
Get Year-round Traction And Comfort With Goodyear All-Season Tires
For cars and minivans, Goodyear offers:
- The Wet Tread Zone of the Goodyear Assurance FuelMax All-Season Tire, which helps evacuate water from the tire tread for better traction on wet roads
- Special comfort layer in the tread of the Assurance ComfoTred Touring tire to provide an average of 20% more cushion than standard passenger tires
- The Assurance TripleTred’s “Ice Zone” technology, which provides interlocking tread pattern to enhance grip in snow and ice
