Hi folks, thinking about Goodyear Assurance when the OEM Hancocks wear out. Any other tire suggestions anyone has used? Happy with?
I have a FWD 2.0

I plan on replacing the Hankooks with Goodyear Assurance Maxlife tires.. tirerack.com ratings for them are excellent. RIght now the Hankooks have just 6,500mi. (2019 Denali) but I bought a set of wheels for the bridgestone blizzaks that are on the car all winter

Goodyear Assurance Weather Ready tires are also a good choice if you need to drive in snow part of the year.

I’m running 20x8 Camaro rims, but I have a set of 245/45/20 Uniroyal Tiger Paw Touring A/S that just came in last week waiting for me to get them installed. I did the research, they’re made by Michelin, have a good warranty (65K miles for my size, 75K in 17” sizes) and they were reasonably priced! Have no idea if they’re available in your needed size, but I’m giving them a try... I ordered mine from tirebuyer...I also got a 7% teacher discount at tirebuyer and then used a credit card linked to my PayPal account for an additional 5% cash back on PayPal purchases :cool:

Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires came on my 2002 Impala from the factory. I got very good service out of them. In fact, I've been thinking of going back to them for my next set when I reach the 240,000-250,000 mile window on my Impala.. I've got some Goodyear's on there now (Assurance?), and they haven't done very well, but then again ... I got them at Wal-Mart, so what do you expect, right?

Ordered a set of the Goodyear Assurance Weatherready for the wifes Envision on 19's that will be coming in Friday. I downsized my Terrain to 18's to put on a set of Falken Wildpeak AT Trails. Both are severe snow triple mountain peak rated.

Assurance at WM are not the same tire as Assurance from other vendors. Goodyear makes specific ones for WM and they are only warrantied at / by WM . Goodyear store will not even warranty them if you bought them at WM.
I've never had good luck with Goodyears, I've got Bridgestone Alenza HL on my 'nox now. I liked the wear and snow grip of them on my Tahoe so I'm trying them on the 'nox. Some tire noise but winter grip is great and 80k wear rating. About 15k on them now and look like new, in fact got a nail in shoulder of one so had to replace it and only had a little more than a 1/32 of wear compared to the new one.

Those tires are on my short list for next tire replacement. If we ever get to drive our vehicles more than we have since March 2020 and COVID-19.

Hopefully by next Spring/Summer things will largely be back to "normal" as it relates to driving and commuting. I think we are in store for another 6-8 months of whatever you want to call this current situation.

I don't think we will ever get to % vaccination. Too many anti vaxers. The health workers aren't even there, I believe. Crazy.

Agreed. Only 50% of people get a flu shot every year, so I don't expect much more than that for the Covid vaccine. Officials have been in the first phase of vaccinations here for almost 3 months now. They simply cannot get a steady supply to be able to get the health workers/first responders/65+ population taken care of. Four months ago I anticipated 6-8 months, looks like I was a little too optimistic. Local officials are projecting July/August before vaccinations reach the point that the "regular population" will be eligible.

That being said, it just means I will not need to think about a new car for several more months (or maybe even at all this year.) I did get to drive my Equinox once in the snow recently, and the tires are certainly getting sketchy despite only having 17,000 miles on them. If I forego getting a new car and decide to keep the Equinox for another year or two, I will need to think about new tires.

On a brighter note, wife and I got our 2nd vaccine today. We met the over 65 criterion. We had to drive 150 miles round trip in somewhat snowy weather, but well worth it.

Any weird feelings after the shots? We won't get it for a while in Canada. We are dead last on the number of vaccination administered (in developed countries). Too many fighting in between the provinces. Politicians put their own interests first. No compromises, typical for politicians...

Actually the reason we are behind is because the vaccine suppliers are slow in providing doses for various reasons such as a plant reconfiguration, expected to speed up very soon.

Yep bought them 2 weeks ago. Drove in 5" snow today. A world of difference from the OEM tires. On the dry pavement the ride was about the same. They seemed quieter doing 55 on the highway. So far I feel I made an excellent purchase and recommend them for others.

I have heard good things about those tires. Probably from JayTee. Oh wait, that was an Acadia.

Btw JayTee, is your Toro involved in the amputation claims ?
