The Assurance ComforTred Touring is
Goodyear's Grand Touring All Season tire developed for the drivers
of mid-range and upscale coupes, sedans and minivans. The Assurance
ComforTred Touring was designed to combine looks, ride comfort and
long wear with all-season traction, even in light snow.
The Assurance ComforTred Touring features a mildly asymmetric tread
design that combines independent shoulder blocks with notched
intermediate and center ribs to blend dry and wet road traction and
handling. Four wide circumferential grooves evacuate water from
under the tread to enhance wet traction while the tread grooves,
notches and sipes form biting edges that deliver all-season traction
in light snow.
The tires' internal construction includes a super shock absorbent
Comfort Layer of rubber sandwiched between the tread and steel belts
(that provides on average, 20% more cushion than standard auto
tires) to insulate vibration and impacts with expansion joints,
potholes and bumps. The tires also feature Goodyear's dual-layer
ComfortEdge sidewall supports to provide a balance of ride comfort
The Assurance ComforTred Touring features an internal structure that
includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon on
top of a polyester cord body to combine strength and durability with
a smooth ride.
Assurance ComforTred Touring radials feature Goodyear's PermaBlack
compound additive that helps maintain like new tire appearance
throughout the life of the tire.
