Goodyear Malaysia today announced the launch of the all-new Assurance ComfortTred here on our shores. The Assurance ComfortTred tyre is a new expansion to Goodyear’s Assurance portfolio, in the form of a touring tyre “specifically customised for premium vehicles” with quietness and comfort as its main focus.
A key innovation in the Goodyear Assurance ComfortTred tyres is the new ANX (Advanced Noise Cancelling) Technology, which combines an additional noise and vibration cancelling layer within the tyre, along with a unique tread design to reduce noise on the move. On the latter, the close pattern design helps reduce air pumping noise, while the high number of smaller tread blocks results in a lower impact force noise.
Additionally, the new tread compound, with high amounts of silica and resin, helps deliver additional traction, especially in the wet. The increased edges on the tread also helps with water evacuation, thus resulting in shorter wet braking distances.
The Assurance ComfortTred will be available in 12 sizes in Malaysia, ranging from 16- to 19-inches in rim diameter, covering the most popular tyre sizes for premium vehicles here on our shores, including both petrol-powered and electric vehicles, says Goodyear. The new tyre is now available at Goodyear Autocare Centres nationwide, with “very competitive pricing” ranging from RM420 to RM860.
The tyres will be manufactured in Goodyear’s plant in China.
In conjunction with the launch, Goodyear Malaysia has also announced a new promotion campaign where the first 200 customers who purchase four pieces of Assurance ComfortTred tyres will be entitled to a pair of free JBL headphones. Eligible customers will just have to register their tyres for the Worry Free Assurance (WFA) Warranty, and then WhatsApp their personal details, receipt, and the WFA screenshot to Goodyear at +6012 998 8410.
