Goodyear updates ComforTred Touring Tire for CTS, 3-Series, A4


Recommended Posts

It would have been easy for Goodyear to let the ComforTred train keep rolling untouched, but it realized a new version was necessary due to the changing market and emergence of the touring car segment. While the original tire was designed for vehicles such as the Cadillac Deville and Ford Crown Victoria in mind, the new ComforTred Touring was developed for newer, more capable vehicles including the Cadillac CTS, BMW 3-series and Audi A4. Even traditional midsize offerings like the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry have made large performance strides in the past few years to make more demands on tires.

To best satisfy the evolving needs of customers looking for both a comfortable ride and slightly raised performance appetite, Goodyear spent two-and-a-half years on a clean sheet design for the new ComforTred Touring. Notable features on the new tire include a new ComfortEdge sidewall featuring split apex construction with a softer comfort layer to absorb shocks and a stiffer layer for better handling.
