I bought these tires to replace OEM Goodyear Eagle LS2s. I immediatly noticed dramatic improvements in ride noise, ride quality and cornering stability. Can a tire be quieter, smoother and still outcorner its OEM predecessor? Absolutely. These tires are whisper-quiet and have a good dampening effect over rough surfaces. This is my second set: We are well into a set on my other car (a small GM SUV) and could not be more pleased with the treadwear, the noise level and the ride quality. Buy these tires. You will be highly pleased.

Initial Review, 250 Miles on Tires
May 15, 2014

With only 250 miles on these tires, I've already experienced very wet road conditions with excellent results at both highway and city street speeds and conditions.
Dry road handling is excellent. I am able to maneuver our many pot holes with extreme confidence. Years of autocross experience also helps.
I missed the snow season so can't comment at this time.
I went from an all season Goodyear Assurance triple tread with 85,000 on them (another tire that I rated almost as high as the Pirelli) then through the winter with Cooper snow tires, to the Pirelli Cinturato P7 Grand Touring.
The first major difference was the tire noise and gas mileage. These are the quitest tires I've ever had on my car. My gas milage avg is 25 mpg. This is 3 mpg better than the Goodyear and 7 mpg (to be expected) than the Cooper snows.
As with my Goodyear tires, I expect to get at least 80,000 miles out of them. Maintenance is the key to a long tire lifeand I perfome this religiously.
One othe note, They also look good on my Outback wagon.

The factory Kuhmo Solus KH16 tires were getting pretty close to done by 40k miles. As the Kuhmos were lousy performing and obviously didn't wear well, I was looking at the Goodyear Assurance. However, the Goodyears were considerably more expensive than the Kuhmos and didn't review even as well. Then I saw the P7 as new in this size, about the same price as the Kuhmos, and decided to give them a try. (The 800AA rated Conti TruContact was not yet available in my size but might be a good comparison, albeit more expensive.)

What an upgrade! The Journey is not exactly a handling machine, but the P7s made it feel like a totally different car. Far better dry, wet and snow traction, braking and handling, much quieter and gives a better ride. The only drawback was a drop in highway mileage of about 2-3 mpg, which was somewhat surpriasing given the EcoImpact rating of the P7. Probably due to the Kuhmo compound being rock hard - and as such, sacrificing pretty much all performance qualities for a better OEM mileage rating.

It remains to be seen how the P7s wear - but if they wear well, there is no question I would by these again. Highly recommended!

September 20, 2009

I put Goodyear Fuelmax tires on my Toyota Camry Hybrid. My immedediate response was relief that the Fuelmax also provided a great feel and ride. I was concerned what trade offs I had made with purchasing a new series tire before user reviews were very available. I drive a hybrid and am not looking for sport handling or track performance. These tires feel secure both on wet and dry pavement. The ride and road feel are as good as I have had on any previeous tire, EL-400 on this car and a line of Michelins on other cars. My mileage did not drop a bit, to my surprise. The worn out OEM tires had low roling resistance due to most of the tread being gone. And with most of the tread being gone, you actually get more revs per mile which registers more miles on your odometer. This makes a worn tire appear to get further improved gas mileage. So with the Fuelmax I was thrilled to record the same 42 mpg that I have been getting all summer in my Camry. I really am waiting to see the winter driving performance. I will provide an update as soon I get some winter weather to put them to the test.

These tires are not all they're cracked up to be. They don't save on fuel. They're noisy and bumpy. I might as well have had summer slicks when I was driving in a dusting of snow. My Michelin snow tires were quieter and provided a smoother ride. My next set of "all-season" tires will be Michelin brand.

I replaced my stock Continental tires that came on my '08 Altima with these tires. Wow, immediate difference in road noise reduction. My ears no longer rang on road trips. I no longer had hydroplane issues either. I drive quite a bit in the winter due to recreational skiing and teaching/patrolling on skis. I found traction to be quite good in all but the worst conditions.
Glare ice was the only condition that I had zero control in. Otherwise, hard pack traction was fine.
I have recommended these tires to other.

This is a replacement of OE tire which came with the '08 Sienna XLE FWD. Primary reason for choosing the Comfortred Touring was ride comfort, treadwear and price. Ride comfort is improved (less noise and less secondary vibrations transferred to the cabin). Treadwear is an on-going evaluation, but I don't expect to replace this tire for another 30,000 miles. Price is attractive/competitive. Overall very happy with the purchase, but will update when more miles are racked onto the tires.

Better than average tire. I am a Goodyear fan and got these due to mileage warranty. I drive in mountainous areas and expected I would not get the full 70,000 miles out of them. At the rate I am going I will only get 29,000 till the wear mark. I got 31,000 out of the stock tires but they did not even compare to these ComforTreds in performance. I am disappointed in the rate of tread wear but they are wearing evenly.

I'm very pleased with my purchase, both the tires and TireRack service. I really haven't put the tires through the ringer yet, but I can tell you the following.

The ride is comfortable.
Dry traction on on turns are great, keep on pushing but haven't found the limit yet.
Straight acceleration the tires let go, but that could be the suspension, I'm putting in coilovers now so I can do some tuning.

I'm going to be making some trips between NY and FL so I will be able to tell you more about highway driving.

Can't comment on wear, but the tires still look brand new.

All in all, great tires, great company, as long as TireRack is around they will be my single source of road rubber.

We did have the Goodyear Triple Tread on our 2004 Honda Odyessy and it has performed extremely well. Our primary focus was to find an all season tire that perfomed very well in the rain or snow. The Triple Tread on the 2004 Odyessy exceded our expectations. The 2004 Honda sized tires did not create ANY noise issues, and we are pleased with the ride and safety handling on this van. When our 2006 Honda Odyessy needed new tires the Goodyear Triple Tread was a first choice, even though we considered the Michelin tires. We did get the Goodyear for the 2006 Honda in the 16inch stock size and I drove them home and could not believe the noise level! In this 16 inch size the interior noise level is louder than a truck tire. On the 2006 Honda these tires do handle well and are very good in light to medium snow. They do drive very well in the rain, but the noise level is way too high for a all season tire. If I had to do it over I would not choose this same tire. I do hope that Goodyear does look into the design of this tire (in the 16 by 225 version) and modify it to reduce the sound. I would easily give up some tread life to reduce the sound..Thx

One of the best all round tires I've seen for passenger cars and minivans. I've had this tire on 2 minivans, a 1994 and 2007 Caravan and a 2002 Subaru Outback. On the Outback, they would pull through 8" of snow with no problem. Have never had an issue with wet traction or hydroplaning on any of the vehicles. I have 86,000 miles on them on the 2007 Caravan, and even at that point in their life they were OK in light snow and the slush left after snowplows went through. The tread wear indicators still aren't showing. My only complaint, and it's really not issues with the vehicles I've mentioned, is a slight lack of responsiveness in the steering, something I attribute to the rather soft sidewalls. So I would not recommend them for a car which is intended for (cough, cough) spirited driving. For instance, I would not put them on my Infinity G37, even if they were available in the right sizes and speed ratings.

A couple of months ago we put a set of these tires on our 2005 Acura TL and these tires perform great. We live in Green Bay Wisconsin and deal with a great variety of weather conditions. This past weekend we took a road trip over to the Twin Cities of Minnesota and the roads were covered with snow and ice. Needless to say, I couldn't have asked for these tires to perform any better that what they did. I am not one for writing reviews but I want to give a kudos to Goodyear - thank you. The only only downside is that they may be a little louder than average - but it wouldn't prevent me from buying these tires again.

Best Replacement Tires for the Honda Odyssey

Thursday, February 27, 2014 by Zig Ziegler

When shopping for tires for the Honda Odyssey most customers tend to look for tires that are quiet, comfortable riding and provide good traction in snow and on ice. Because of the large open space inside the cabin of the minivan, road noise is always an issue. Choosing the right tire can really make a big difference.

A few great options to consider when replacing tires on your Honda Odyssey include the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring, Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology and Firestone's Precision Touring. All three provide the best blend of ride/noise comfort, all-season traction and price.

Goodyear's 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 to deliver all-season traction in light snow.

The tire's internal construction includes a super shock absorbent Comfort Layer of rubber sandwiched between the tread and steel belts to insulate vibration and impacts with expansion joints, potholes and bumps. It also features Goodyear's dual-layer ComfortEdge sidewall supports to provide a balance of ride comfort and handling.

CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology tires from Continental use an all-season tread compound featuring their Tg-F Polymers and +Silane additives to improve treadwear, fuel efficiency and traction on slippery roads. The compound is molded into a symmetric tread design with notched outboard shoulders, independent intermediate tread blocks and continuous center ribs to blend on-road steering response and straight-line stability with reduced noise and enhanced ride comfort. All sizes of the CrossContact LX20 come with a flanged lower sidewall to help reduce the possibility of curb damage to expensive wheels.

The Precision Touring is Firestone's Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans, family minivans and crossover vehicles looking for year-round capability and comfort. Affordably priced, the tire is designed to blend long treadwear, a quiet ride and all-season traction on dry and wet roads, as well as in light snow.

Precision Touring tires mold a silica-enhanced all-season tread compound into a symmetric design featuring wide shoulders flanking interlocking ribs to provide dry road response and handling. Four circumferential grooves help guide water through the tire's footprint for wet traction while multiple notches and sipes provide the biting edges to enhance traction in light snow. The tire's structure includes twin, high tensile steel belts on top of a polyester casing to deliver strength, ride quality and handling.

Be sure to check out our test results and customer survey reviews to help you make a decision on what tire is best for how and where you drive.

Looking for Quiet Tires? Check Out My Top Three Picks!

Tuesday, January 28, 2014 by Gary Stanley

When shopping for tires, most drivers place a good deal of emphasis on quietness. No one wants to listen to a loud tire on a long trip or have to shout at their passengers to have a conversation. Tire noise can be more than just an annoyance, it can also mask important sounds that affect vehicle performance, maintenance and safety.  

For most drivers, the quietest tires are found in the Passenger All-Season, Standard Touring All-Season and Grand Touring All-Season performance categories.

For Passenger All-Season tires, the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred and Michelin Energy Saver A/S both received top ratings for noise comfort. While the Goodyear is not available in many sizes, the Michelin is made in quite a few popular fitments ranging from compact cars to crossover vehicles.  

In the Standard Touring All-Season category, the Michelin Defender has consistently received high praise from our customers in regards to its smooth and quiet ride. It's also designed to deliver extra long wear and all-season traction in dry, wet and wintry conditions, even in light snow. 

If you're driving a vehicle that uses tires with higher speed ratings, check out the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus and Michelin Primacy MXV4. The P7 All Season Plus is a relative newcomer with few miles reported in our surveys, but initial feedback has been outstanding. Developed to be environmentally friendly, Pirelli's EcoImpact icons confirm the tire's contribution to the environment with regards to energy efficiency, clean air, low noise and long wear. Michelin's Primacy MXV4 offers a quiet, comfortable ride, long treadlife, responsive handling and all-season traction. You can learn about my personal experience with this Michelin tire by reading "Michelin Primacy MXV4 Tires Installed on My Crossover."

Note: Please don't rate tires until you have some miles on them. I hate to see reviews with 25, 50 or 500 miles; they are meaningless! You have to have some time and many miles on them to rate them properly.
