I'd stay away

Hey all!

Has anybody tried Goodyear Assurance Outlast's on their Gen 4?

I've got Goodyear Assurance Triple Tread and all 4 have been replaced under warranty at least once in less than 25K miles. Original tires were made in USA but the replacements are all made in S. America (Peru or Chile..I forgert which). I wouldn't recommend anything with "Assurance" on it from Goodyear.


Conti Contacts are real good and surprisingly, Uniroyal Long Touring (at WalMart) have been very good in the wet and low noise. Handling is on par with the Conti's but they lasted longer 60K miles. All have been on my Gen 4 Vulcan.

I never bought one but: 2 used car bought with them on. See pic, typical with way too much out of balance, and that comes from out of round. Noisy, and balance issues. Buick Lucerne with them, noisy and half worn out so I replaced for winter with Mic. Defenders. The handling of the car much better. This heavy soft car had "tail wag" problems with GY, none with Mics.
Mics are QUIET and handle nice. GY the opposite.
I would rather have no name from the JY. Just my take.

I had Goodyear Assurance Triple Treads installed on my 99 SES.
They have been good tires & I have had zero issues with them.
Regular pressure checks & rotations are done.
Today was a good day to have them, lot's of snow fell, great traction!
So 20K miles so far, I am happy!

As to my previous post about GY, and excessive weights and other problems.
My last used Taurus had Firestones and it pulled to the right when I got it. Switched tires side to side and it pulled the other way. Switched front and rear and no problems. BUT, one tire on the back now wearing fast and other not the best.
Bought Mics at Sams club, X-Touring. $119 per + $20 for mounting and such, add $2.5o for disposal per the state. Now $110 instant savings off and total $495.96. Tires are quiet, smooth, and handling is nice. It is an "every day driver" for my daughter. And: maximum weights for balance: half ounce. For me, excess weights means the tire is not round.
Just sharing.
