The Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max model is an extremely cost-effective car tire that not only allows you to drive all year in the same set but also significantly saves on refueling. The tires can be installed on almost all modern vehicles, and the model is available in 27 sizes.
- Dry performance.
- Improves fuel economy.
- Comfortable driving on rough roads.
- Wet and snow performance could be better.
- There is a lot of noise when driving on the highway.
Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max tires were originally designed for city crossovers, for drivers who have to spend several hours a day driving in city streets. Using the Goodyear model not only increases the comfort of travel but also makes it more profitable in terms of fuel costs.
If you work in a commercial organization and often go on long trips, or if you are a family man who prefers to travel with your family while covering long distances with a relaxed driving style, then Goodyear Assurance FuelMax tires are just for you.
The tire tread is made of a special rubber compound. Its distinctive characteristics are wear resistance, high thermal conductivity. This reduces rolling resistance and extends the life of the rubber.
The tread is optimized for high loads, increasing the contact patch. This characteristic remains unchanged under acceleration.
Modern technologies used by the manufacturer have helped to reduce rolling resistance by 27% and maintain the advantages of all-season rubber.
Rubber from the Goodyear company has established itself as a reliable, safe tire for passenger cars of various classes.
Tires have standard wear indicators (rubber rods) that are located in the tread grooves. They allow drivers to monitor the tire’s wear and remaining tread depth. The shallower the depth, the worse the performance of the tires will be. The minimum depth for good wet grip is 2/32 inches. If the values are lower than this, driving can be dangerous, so you need to change your tires in a timely manner.
Dry, wet, and snowy driving
On wet surfaces, the tires are characterized by increased traction, precision in control, resistance to aquaplaning. Excellent traction is provided by a specially padded rubber mixture, double grooves.
To improve the Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max’s traction in rainy weather, Dual Aquachannal Grooves technology has been applied. This doubled the amount of water removed from under the tread. So, even in the heaviest downpours, the tread doesn’t lose its grip and prevents the car from going into aquaplaning.
Goodyear Assurance FullMax rubber is divided into sectors, responsible for control on dry and wet roads, on asphalt with little snow. Zigzag grooves and small channels located around the circumference of the tires take the water out from under the contact zone. A large number of sipes allow you to feel confident on roads with little ice.
Some drivers note that on wet asphalt the tires behave perfectly as they do on dry roads and significantly reduce gasoline consumption. But there are also negative reviews. There are buyers who complained about sliding on wet asphalt and poor handling at high speeds. If you sharply change lanes, the car can skid, but these indicators improve if you drive at a low speed.
