The Assurance CS featuring Fuel Max Technology is Goodyear’s Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season light truck tire developed for the drivers of crossover, sport utility vehicles and light duty pickup trucks looking for tires that offer long wear, wet traction and low rolling resistance as some of their top priorities. The Assurance CS Fuel Max is designed to provide year-round, all-season traction in dry, wet and wintry weather conditions, including light snow, as well as offer reduced rolling resistance to enhance vehicle fuel economy over the tire’s lifetime.
The Assurance CS Fuel Max uses a fuel-saving tread compound that reduces the energy consumed as the tire rolls. Its tread design features inboard and outboard Dry Tread Zones featuring sturdy shoulder blocks to enhance handling in dry conditions. A central Wet Tread Zone with Dual Aquachannel grooves evacuate water to promote wet weather traction while engineered sipes increase the number of biting edges to enhance traction in snow. The tire’s reinforced internal structure features twin steel belts for strength on top of a polyester casing that enhances ride quality.
