FANTASTIC!!!! wet weather traction, they plow right through water. Please don't hesitate to buy these tires!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

50000 miles in the snow, rain, sleet, hail and heat in Iowa. No problems what so ever. I am buying another set soon.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max

Noisiest tires I ever owned![I am 80 years old]. Thump...thump...on some roads and whoo..whoo...on other roads. Don't buy this tire unless you like continuous tire noise!Finally I complained enough that Goodyear replaced them with Dunlops at no charge. What really bothered me was that the Goodyears were check rated by Consumer Reports. The Dunlops are nice...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance All-Season

I hesitated on buying this tire as there were no surveys available for this new model. We are not disappointed. So far these are very superior to the OEM Kumho tires that came with the car. The only negative is a slight directional instability when cold which might need a tweak to the tire pressure.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring

Bought these tires for a smoother quieter ride and they delivered. Thwacks turned to thumps and driving on rough and smooth pavement is calmer than the Michelin or Continentals. While I have rated these lower on handling they do hold well. Initial turn-in is delayed but when pushed seem to hold as well as the higher performance tires I have owned....  Read More

What's the Best All-Season Tire for Ice and Snow?

All-season tires are a great option for many drivers. They are suitable for drivers who live in an area that receives occasional light snow, and/or freezing temperatures a few times throughout the year. Some all-season tires, such as the Continental ExtremeContact DWS, even provide above average snow capabilities that are a benefit in winter months. However,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring

These tires performed well, with most miles spent driving in the city & suburbs of Chicago. Surprisingly good (as you can get without a snow tire) performance in the snow, great wet traction, and excellent tread life. It felt like a good match for the Subaru if you are looking for an all-season, all conditions tire. You will sacrifice some cornering and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

110,000k miles on these tires. Well, I had these tires for about 110k miles. Tire racks gauge only goes up to 100,000k but I surpassed that by 10k. That's right, over a hundred thousand miles and they still have enough tread for about another year. These are great tires but lasted way to long. I can't believe I'm saying that. I haven't even gotten to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (V-Speed Rated)

First off these are no assurance model tires, but pretty ---- close for the accord coupe on 18 size. But compared to the Pilot HX MXM4 by Michillien, the goodyear eagle sports let you realize how amazing your car really is. After putting some miles on my car with these tires I can honestly say the tires provide solid grip on any kind of road conditions that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S (H- or V-Speed Rated)

These tires really are excellent in the snow and rain. I think they are second only to the Goodyear Assurance Triple Treds. Great stability, cornering, and traction with very little road noise.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring

I don't normally write reviews but had to give a shout out for a great product. 50k plus miles on these tires and would go much further in a non snowy environment. car is not aligned properly and I am not the best about keeping correct air pressure. I beat these tires up and they were nothing but great. highly recommend. wont go 70k if you drive in snow but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

By far the best tire I have had. Great traction wet or dry. Cant really speak for snow as I live in Georgia BUT these got me home securely 15 mile away in the infamous snow storm that crippled Atlanta. I am curious to see how much treadwear I have remaining. The sides are approaching the tread marker but the centers look new.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring

We de-Paxed our Odyssey using Rims from a Honda Pilot and these tires. The ride compared to when we had the Michelin PAX tires on the van is not even in the same universe. It seems like a whole new van. Smooth, quiet, responsive, steering wheel doesn't vibrate out of our hands anymore! The tires increased fuel economy by about 2mpg. I can't say enough about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max

Ok, I just got these tires so this is my very initial experience with them. I got them because the Michelin tires on my wife's car had gotten so noisy and wanted something other than Michelin's as the last 2 sets had done the same thing (very noisy after 12K miles. We had more than 12K on both sets of course but had to deal with the noise for a long time....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring

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...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

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...  Read More
