Assurance Fuel Max is Goodyear’s mid-tier Passenger All-Season tyre designed for the drivers of cars, coupes, vans and crossover vehicles looking for affordably priced tyres offering long wear, wet traction and low rolling resistance as some of their top priorities. The Assurance Fuel Max is designed to provide year-round confidence in wet, dry and wintry weather conditions, including in light snow, as well as offers lower rolling resistance to enhance vehicle fuel economy over the tyre’s lifetime. It is an affordable tyre that helps drivers save gas and provide everyday driving confidence. Key Features and Benefits: Fuel-Saving Tread Compound – helps reduce energy loss as the tyre rolls to save 2,600 miles worth of gas over the life of the tyre. Wet Tread Zone with Dual Aquachannel Grooves – helps evacuate water away from the treadface for great traction on wet roads. Dry Tread Zone with Solid Shoulder Blocks – helps enhance handling and grip for confident maneuvering on dry pavement. Zig-Zagging Micro Grooves and Center Tread Notches – help grip the road in rain and light snow for all-season performance. Circumferential Shoulder Grooves – help promote even treadwear and provide biting edges for traction in wet weather. The Assurance Fuel Max moulds a low rolling resistance all-season compound into a tread design featuring distinct zones. A virtually continuous notched centre rib combined with circumferential shoulder grooves blend dry road stability and even tread wear with traction in snowy conditions. The tyre’s internal structure features twin steel belts (H-speed rated sizes are reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon belt edge strips) on top of a polyester casing that enhances ride quality. Consistent traction and even wear in different loading conditions is supported by its optimized construction.
