Goodyear Assurance Comfortred Touring Review
Built to out-performance competitors in specific areas, Goodyear’s Assurance line of tires even offers an option for those who truly value comfort.
- Truly comfortable
- Excellent, long warranty
- A bit pricey
While this may seem like an obvious choice for luxury sedans or big boaty, floaty cars, there’s a strong argument to be made for more comfortable tires on a lot of modern vehicles, including SUVs and crossovers. In fact, it’s a common trait of modern cars to offer lower profile sidewall tires, which tends to negatively impact ride comfort. This tends to be especially true on crossovers which can be given a stiffer suspension as well, so as to make them feel more planted in the corners.
Regardless of your reason for wanting more comfort, Goodyear delivers.
As a premium all-season tire, the Assurance ComforTred Touring is built with a tread that has an extra cushion layer inside it to deliver a ride that the brand claims is 20% softer than rival tires. It also uses a unique sidewall construction that’s designed to deliver similar comfort over bumps in the road, while still holding firm when leaned on in a corner. As a result, handling doesn’t take a back seat.
In fact, we’re perhaps most impressed that handling is still a priority with a larger center tread rib for quick response to turn-in and large should tread blocks to make sure the tire continues to carry through on those initial inputs. That shouldn’t surprise us asa more premium touring tire should perform like this. Plus, it should also be quiet, which it is.
On top of all this, the Assurance ComforTrend Touring is also engineered for wet weather grip.
With almost 2,000 reviews from real users on Goodyear’s own website, the tire is rated an impressive 4.7 out of 5 stars!

There’s really no question about if this tire is good or not. As a premium Goodyear tire, owners expect more than just good. Thankfully they get it and more with a tire that delivers on its promise of a plush ride, while also delivering impressive attributes in other areas. With above-average handling dynamics, an incredibly quiet ride and a very long tread life, Goodyear makes a convincing argument for why you should pay a premium for a tire like this.
