by Autocar Pro News Desk , 13 Jul 2018


Goodyear India today launched the new Assurance TripleMax 2 radial tyre, the next-generation tyre of the Assurance TripleMax tyre first launched in 2015 in the Indian market.

Designed to deliver a higher level of safety and durability, the Assurance TripleMax 2 is also optimised for excellent grip performance with a short braking distance under wet conditions. Assurance TripleMax 2 also provides superior ride and comfort, says Goodyear India.

According to the company, the new Assurance TripleMax 2 equipped with HydroTred technology has:

- Excellent wet braking performance due to innovative compound formulation that increases stickiness while the optimised microstructure delivers better grip and braking performance in wet road conditions.

- Enhanced handling due to new HydroTred technology for an optimised footprint and more effective contact pressure that helps deliver an enhanced driving experience with better tyre cornering power and steering precision.

- Improved comfort as a result of an innovative tread pattern which is designed to minimise pattern noise throughout tyre life, providing a smoother and more comfortable drive.

- Additional technical features on the sidewall and construction design and materials are introduced to Assurance TripleMax 2, in order to increase resistance to sidewall impacts.

Speaking at the launch in New Delhi today, P K Walia, vice-president (consumer tyre business), Goodyear India, said, “As pioneers in tyre technology, we constantly challenge ourselves to innovate and develop better products to improve the overall driving experience. We are celebrating our 120th anniversary this year, which marks a significant milestone for Goodyear. From the first tyres on the moon to the first tubeless tyres in India, Goodyear has always been at the forefront of technological innovation. We are confident that the new Assurance TripleMax 2 will allow drivers to experience better wet braking and handling performance.”
