The Assurance WeatherReady is Goodyear’s Grand Touring All-Season tire designed for the drivers of family sedans, coupes, crossovers, SUVs and minivans who want the smooth and quiet ride of a premium touring tire combined with the all-season confidence that comes from driving a vehicle equipped with tires bearing the Severe Snow Service certification symbol.
The special soy-based rubber tread compound of the Assurance WeatherReady is molded into an asymmetric tread design focused on providing the traction needed for any weather condition. Goodyear’s Weather Reactive Technology delivers control in inclement weather with 3D TredLock Technology Blades in the center and outboard tread ribs to provide stable cornering in slippery conditions. Evolving Traction Grooves help retain high levels of grip as the tire wears. Added silica in the tread compound aids traction on wet roads, while the Sweeping Tread Grooves move water away from the footprint to the four deep, circumferential channels to resist hydroplaning. The intermediate ribs of the Assurance WeatherReady feature Zigzag Biting Edges to provide the traction needed for confidence in slippery conditions, including on ice and in snow. All Assurance WeatherReady tires meet industry Severe Snow Service requirements and are branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.
Internal construction of the Assurance WeatherReady utilizes a single-ply polyester casing. Two wide, steel belts support the tread area, and a polyamide reinforcement aids handling response and high-speed capability.
Note: While non-winter tires featuring the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol provide additional longitudinal snow traction beyond what all-season (M+S) tires not bearing the symbol can deliver, they do not match the capability of a true winter tire in all adverse weather conditions.
