Designed for family cars in the mid and premium markets, consumers who are looking for value for money and safety can now achieve maximum fuel efficiency and maximum protection with this new tire.
Fuel Savings Example
New Assurance Fuel Max’s fuel efficiency improvement can lead to 320L of fuel savings. For example: if a 1.6L car has an average fuel consumption rate of 10L/100km, is fitted with Assurance Fuel Max on size 195/65E15 91V and travels a distance of 80,000 km, the potential fuel savings can be calculated as follows:
80,000 km (distance traveled) x 10L/100 km (fuel consumption rate) x 4% (fuel saving rate) = 320 L (potential fuel savings).
A layer of DuPont™ KEVLAR®, a lightweight material that is five times stronger than steel gives added durability and protection.
Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max is also built with two plies in the sidewalls of the tire for increased durability and protection.
A Comfortable and Quiet Ride
The tire is designed with a four pitch sequence and high centerline block angles that helps to facilitate a smooth and quiet contact with the road.
Shorter Braking and Grip on Wet and Dry Roads
Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max is constructed with unique three dimensional waffle blades in the tread to enable improved lateral interlocking power while providing maximized circumferential decoupling. This technology delivers better braking and grip on both wet and dry surfaces.
For maximum wet-traction, the tread has also been designed with four uninterrupted circumferential grooves, which provide room in the footprint for the tire to absorb and repel water, ensuring better aquaplaning resistance on wet roads.
