Goodyear unveiled recently their new tire product that are designed for mid-sized passenger vehicles, the new tire of Goodyear have this "Assurance TripleMax", the first tire to boast Goodyear's latest tech - called "Hydrogrip Technology" - the tire can help the car increase more grip on the road and have maximum assurance and worry free driving on wet roads.
The new tire is very helpful especially on wet roads, drivers won't even worry when the road is wet, because the Goodyear Assurance TripleMax tire reduce braking distances by more than 2 meters on wet roads.
There are times that I got this worry feeling that the car that I’m driving might slip and loose control, and we know that wet roads are a hazard to drivers, we’ve seen accidents happening because of roads are slippery when get wet, that’s why we have signs on the road to notify us that the road are slippery when wet, but when it comes to safety, it is up to the responsibility of the driver to drive slow whenever the road is wet, there’s no such technology or automatic tech that can help the car or even the tire to stick on the road while moving, Goodyear Assurance TripleMax will guarantee for braking on wet roads, but we drivers should be very careful in driving and I’m sure the new tech of Goodyear will add more help for our safety driving.
They say that the new lines and edge gap of tires in Goodyear Assurance TripleMax is designed more for wet roads and also having a new material included in the tire to add more grip and also durability of the tire.
I will copy paste the details here…to explain more about “Goodyear Assurance TripleMax “
In addition to significantly increasing grip and shortening braking distances, the Goodyear Assurance TripleMax tire was also developed with two other key consumer needs in mind; a high level of tire durability and an increase in fuel savings.
Reinforced with DuPont™ Kevlar® for added protection
Built to last longer, the Goodyear Assurance TripleMax gives drivers that extra mile with added protection and increased tire longevity. The Assurance TripleMax is reinforced with Dupont™ Kevlar®, which is used in military grade equipment. This lightweight material maintains stiffness and strength even under high temperature conditions when the tire is in motion, giving drivers’ added protection against road hazards.
Incorporates Fuel Saving Technology™
Goodyear’s Fuel Saving Technology™ in the Assurance TripleMax lets drivers go further for less and reduce emissions, saving up to Php15,900/318L worth of fuel over the life of the tires². This is achieved by reducing the tire’s rolling resistance; the lower the rolling resistance of a tire, the less energy the car needs to push it forward.
“The Assurance TripleMax is Goodyear’s response to deliver to consumers a tire they’ve always wanted – one which focuses on increasing grip to improve safety, while also extending tire lifespan and maximizing fuel savings,” said Ron Castro.
HYDROGRIP Technology® – Reduces braking distances by more than 2 meters on wet roads¹
Goodyear’s proprietary HYDROGRIP Technology® in the Assurance TripleMax tire allows drivers to reduce braking distances by more than 2 meters on wet roads¹. HYDROGRIP Technology ® is a combination of the following three elements:
Maximum Wet Grip: An innovative functionalized polymer tread compound with improved molecular bonding gives the Assurance TripleMax tire the extra edge to take grip to a whole new level on wet and dry roads.
Maximum Control: Larger surface area contact and optimized pressure distribution on key block elements on the Assurance TripleMax tire improves rubber contact with the road, giving drivers more control during braking.
Maximum Braking Ability: Equipped with biting edges with large block elements, the new Assurance TripleMax tire has an increased road contact area for extra security when braking.
Here are at show area, we can see the new “Goodyear Assurance TripleMax “ in a Toyota Camry car
I don’t know much about tires…but with the new tech from Goodyear, I can say that this is one big pogi points whoever uses the Goodyear Assurance TripleMax .
Available in 14" to 17" rim diameters and in multiple sizes, the Goodyear Assurance TripleMax tire delivers drivers of a wide range of mid-sized passenger vehicles maximum grip for maximum assurance.
here are some photos from the launch event
Unveiling the “Goodyear Assurance TripleMax “
Ron Castro, Managing Director for Goodyear Philippines and Distributor Markets.
Goodyears non stop innovation through the years. They also the main supplier of tires for planes.
TripleMax tech design is for maximum wet grip, control and braking ability.
The lines and edges helps the car get a nice grip on the road even if its wet and braking is not a problem here if you have better tires with grip tech. Its physics baby…and I don’t want to get more details on how this works.
New material added to the tire – Functionalized Polymer Tread Compound – main ingredient to have a better grip on wet roads and this is patented by Goodyear. Their tire scientist are doing good in research and coming up with this new compound for the tires.
Most interesting part of the presentation at the launch is the benchmark comparison of a car using the new tire of Goodyear vs. cars who uses other brands. They told us that Goodyear Assurance Triplemax stops more than 2 meters shorter than the other tired wet roads.
Funny thing is that… After Goodyear’s event launch..a competitor emailed me introducing their new tire …which is similar to Goodyear..Im not convinced because I’m just reading an email and no test is shown to us.
Using the Goodyear Assurance Triplemax will assure you that you’ll save more fuel when driving.
Because…the tire helps you get 7.5 % less rolling resistance when you are on the road…
I agree with this… having a less rolling resistance on the road will help you save more energy.
And here’s a result of their tests….. saving up to Php15,900 of fuel over the life of the tire.
Anatomy of Goodyear Assurance Triplexmax – ohhh there’s a Kevlar material, its not really bullet proof but this increases more durability and long life to the tire.
At the forum, the answered some questions from the guest, most attendees are motoring press, then they showed to us a video of some celebrities and also drivers who used the new tire of Goodyear, spotted is Jane Kingsu tried it and she said that the grip is very effective and its a worry free driving.
They also showed us the tire…..
Here’s me… photo op with the mock up display hahahaha
It’s a start for everyone to keep in mind to drive safely when you are driving in a wet road.
Congratulations to Goodyear for launching a new tech for our tires!
