Goodyear Philippines has launched the Assurance TripleMax tire that reportedly reduces braking distances by more than two meters on wet roads. The tire uses proprietary Hydrogrip technology that provides more wet grip. The tire is designed for mid-sized passenger vehicles.
“Setting a new standard in tire innovation, the Assurance TripleMax uses Hydrogrip technology, a Goodyear proprietary technology that allows drivers to reduce braking distances by more than two meters on wet roads compared to other tires in the market today,” said Ron Castro, Managing Director for Goodyear Philippines and Distributor Markets.
Hydrogrip uses a new tread compound, larger surface area contact patch (meaning more rubber on the road), and maximum braking response via large block elements with biting edges. The new tires also offer increased durability and contribute to better fuel efficiency. Kevlar belts are used in the tire construction for added stiffness and strength. The tires also offer low rolling resistance for better fuel economy. Goodyear claims savings of up to 318 liters of fuel over the life of the tires. The new Assurance Triplemax are available in 14-inch to 17-inch rim diameters.
