Goodyear Assurance MaxLife. FEATURES AND BENEFITS: All weather traction; Enhanced controllability; Comfortable driving experience; Wear Gauge tread wear indicator; . OVERVIEW: The Goodyear Assurance MaxLife is a touring all season tire manufactured for passenger vehicles. Goodyear offers an 85,000 mile tread wear warranty with this tire model.The tire promotes great all weather traction. The all season tire compound and the tread pattern enhance the dry, wet and winter weather road grip. The tire compound keeps its flexibility in all weather, while the tread elements enhance the road gripping ability all year. The wide circumferential grooves prevent hydroplaning by eliminating water and slush from below the tire’s footprint. This results in a safer hydroplaning resistance and first-rate all weather performance.The tread pattern enhances the steering responsiveness and driving stability. The continuous center rib maintains the tire’s constant road contact to increase the tire’s controllability. In other words, it enhances the steering response time and accuracy to the driver’s commands and it stabilizes the structure against the driving pressure affecting the tire during the drive. In this manner, the driver can confidently control the vehicle in all weather.The tire’s internal structure consists of twin steel belts and a polyester casing. They work together to ensure the tire’s optimized structure. The twin steel belts keep the tire’s optimal shape and prevent it from deforming under the driving pressure affecting it. The polyester casing allows the tire to closely follow the road surface at all times. This absorbs the shock of driving and prevents road vibrations felt in the vehicle’s cabin.The Assurance MaxLife features Wear Gauges. These are located on the intermediate ribs, and are responsible for providing a visual indication of the tread depth remaining on the tires. This enables the driver to monitor the tread wear rate on the tires, and remedy possible arising problems in the wear patterns, greatly extending the tread life and the tire’s usability. Manufacturers recommend changing tires every 10 years. As long as tires are properly stored before they are sold, the year of their manufacture will not shorten their service life.
