Goodyear Assurance All-Season Review
A stand-out tire that doesn’t really stand out, the Goodyear Assurance All-Season might not wow you, but it will certainly get the job done.
- An all-around well-rounded tire
- Decent warranty
- Affordably priced
- No stand-out features
Here at TruckTireReviews.com we love tires. We love where they take us and we love all the technology that goes into designing and manufacturing them. But we understand that for most folks, tires get you from point A to point B, and you want them to do so reliably, safely and affordably.
And that’s why Goodyear made the Assurance All-Season.
A conventional all-season tire if we ever came across one, it’s designed with four circumferential grooves to evaucate water and prevent hydroplaning. The center tread rib is mostly solid, giving a compromise between highway stability and turn-in response, with grip in inclement weather. You can see on the tread blocks al the small slits and grooves designed to give extra biting edges in wet weather or even snow.
We always like to point out that if you do live where there’s real snow, you should probably get some proper winter tires as well.
Handling is competent though not what we’d call exciting. And wet weather grip is solid.
In term of comfort and road noise, both could be better, but again, if you’re like most drivers you won’t really notice either way. And for the affordable price and solid 65,000 mile tread life warranty, it’s really hard to go wrong with such a well-rounded tire from a trusted tier-one tire manufacturer.
Goodyear Assurance All-Season Price
Pricing for the Goodyear Assurance All-Season ranges from around $70 per tire for a 14-inch fitment up to roughly $180 for a 19-inch fitment.
Goodyear Assurance All-Season Warranty
Goodyear backs the Assurance All-Season tire with a 65,000 mile tread life warranty.
It also comes with a factory limited warranty that protects against defects in materials and workmanship. Tires found to be defective in the first 2/32-inch of tread wear will be replaced free of charge. After that point and down to the final 2/32-inch of useable tread life will be replaced on a pro-rated basis.

Is the Goodyear Assurance All-Season Good in the Snow?
While it contains some siping, the Assurance All-Season isn’t great in snow. In fact, it performs pretty poorly compared to other all-season tires and owner’s don’t have a lot of positive things to say about winter grip. If you are looking for grip in snow, the Assurance WeatherReady is your tire. It’s actually a four-season tire, meaning it’s an all-season that’s also certified for extreme winter use and wears the three-peak mountain snowflake logo as proof.
