If there are two most important elements in car ownership, then it's got to be brakes and tires. Good brakes and tires influence your safety, fuel consumption and maintenance costs in the long run. Imagine a tire that can take you the distance of about two and a half times around the world? That's over 100,000km. Well, now you can. Goodyear Malaysia has just announced the Assurance DuraPlus range, made to go the distance and reinforced with DuPont Kevlar for ultimate protection and durability.

The Assurance DuraPlus is designed for small- to mid-sized passenger vehicles, boasting an improved version of Goodyear's proprietary TredLife Technology. It also has a new enhanced tread compound combined with DuPont Kevlar overlay for added reinforcement.

100,000kms is a big deal. And the secret to the long mileage is TredLife Technology that's made up of three key elements. An advanced carbon-based tread compound with higher carbon content provides increased resistance to road wear.

Next, a larger tread width design which comes from an optimised cavity shape puts more rubber in contact with the road. It means more traction, and ultimately a longer-lasting tread.

As an added feature, the tire has an asymmetric tread design for more precise handling.

Maximum rubber volume means more contact area, and combined with a deep tread depth, allows for more wearable rubber.

The famed DuPont Kevlar was tasked to provide stiffness and strength, even under high temperature conditions. The Kevlar overlay gives the tire added durability and also protection against road hazards (especially Malaysian potholes!).

If you didn't know already, Goodyear Malaysia has a Worry Free Assurance Programme in place that gives tire owners protection in case of nasty road hazards like puncture, cut, bruise and impact caused during course of normal daily driving.

The Assurance DuraPlus is covered under the program, and within a 6-month validity period, you will receive a free replacement tire when damage due to road hazards occur. The caveat, tread depth of tire must be more than 6.7mm. In case of damage when depth of tire is within 5.5mm to 6.6mm, Goodyear will give credit against the purchase of a new Goodyear tire of the same size and design.

    • Luq

      this brand is quite expensive compared to another brand, but you also can get in 2nd hand tyre bcos if 2nd hand means the price wnt like buy a new tyre ….so may be u can try to look for 2 nd hand tyres.

    • Penny

      Tyre is important, to me I will get the best I can afford. Also, you can apply for installment for the tyre as I saw many shop start offering installment plan. I just got my Continental CC6 with 6 month installment. This month is the 3rd, and the performance didn’t disappoint me especially the brake performance… It’s responsive and the tyre make my car more steady in wet road.

    • Penny

      Myvi small diameter. Hence, the price won’t be sky high… If let said u take the vehicle like Vios and City. Price will be higher, but not sky high… To me the price is standard, since the quality is not bad either.

    • Dvin

    • Sunny Lim

      ANy tyres will wear out by the mean time and it all depends on the usage of that particular individuals themselves. Premium or standard, pricey or cheap, it’ll wear out anyways. Pricey one you got lesser noice, cheap one you get a better handling, yourpick lads.
