Goodyear launches Assurance TripleMax 2 tyre: Better braking promised

By CARSIFU | 20 December 2018

KUALA LUMPUR: Goodyear Malaysia has launched the new Assurance TripleMax 2 tyre which offers better braking and handling performance, and comfort.

Priced from RM200 to RM300, the Goodyear Assurance TripleMax 2 is available in 15 to 17-inch rim sizes.

With the tagline "Stop Faster, Drive Safer", it is aimed at B and C-segment cars ranging from the Proton Saga BLM, Peugeot 208, Toyota Vios, Volkswagen Polo, Honda Civic, Honda HR-V, Toyota Sienta, Toyota Prius to the Nissan Teana.

Featuring the latest HydroTred technology, the Goodyear Assurance TripleMax 2 tyre delivers better grip and braking performance on wet roads as it uses an innovative compound formulation to increase stickiness.

It also delivers enhanced handling as the new HydroTred Technology with optimised footprint and more effective contact pressure results in better tyre cornering stiffness and steering precision.

There is also improved comfort performance due to an innovative tread pattern that is designed to minimise pattern noise throughout tyre life.

It also provides increased resistance to sidewall impacts, due to the introduction of additional technical features on the sidewall, construction design and materials.

Ben Hoge, managing director of Goodyear Malaysia, said: “In conjunction with our 120th anniversary celebration this year which is a significant milestone for Goodyear, we are also excited to announce the arrival of the Assurance TripleMax 2, designed to provide faster braking and a safer driving experience, particularly on wet roads during this heavy monsoon season, in Malaysia.”

The Assurance TripleMax 2 is now available in almost 200 Goodyear Autocare outlets.
