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 and handling.
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
