Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring
Initial Review: 50 miles on tires
October 28, 2011

Just got these tires on today. I must say I was worried about this purchase. These were highly rated on tire rack. In fact the best all-season performer in snow and ice for their category. My last set of tires were performance tires for my coupe. Falken Ziex ZE329's. They are a fun and fast tire. I tried to go to a Firehawk GT at the time, but was sorely disappointed in handling. I ended up taking them back and getting another pair of Falkens. Then we moved to Salt Lake City. My summertime driving was a blast, but as soon as winter hit, the Falkens were worthless. They're a great perfomance all-season tire, except when you have 6 months of winter. I purchased these Assurance ComforTreds reluctantly remembering my Firehawk GT experience. I had them installed today and was pleasantly surprised. I heard the TripleTreds were a better performance tire, but not a good in the snow and terribly loud. Though a GT(Grand Touring)tire, and not a performance tire, the ComforTreds handled much better than the Firehawks. I took them on the highway and around town and don't really have any complaints. They're not quite as fast or responsive as a full performance tire, but will do A LOT better trying to get to the ski resorts in a month. Snow is just around the corner and with the deep tread pattern I expect these to handle as rated on Tire Rack. The process was easy and painless and probably saved me $200 after rebate.
