#474 of 583 Goodyear Assurance Tripletread Tires
Aug 14, 2010 (2:52 pm)
I had Goodyear Assurance TripleTred tires on a 2002 Mercury Marquis and they went 70,000 miles before I had to replace them due to wear. I traded this car in on a new 2007 Hyundai Azera.
At 28,000 miles on the Azera, my wife picked up a nail and ran on the tire after it went flat long enough to break down the sidewall. I was going to have to buy a new tire, so used this as an excuse to go ahead and buy a set of Goodyear Assurance TripleTreds. As of today, I have 12,500 miles on the Goodyears, and can discern no noticeable tread wear.

Seems my tread guage was worn out. I re checked with a new one and found 5/32 left

Personally...after you have scrubbed the tires really good, dried them off nicely...I love how the Armor All Extreme product works. I also do not apply it with the applicator they provide, I prefer to use the open cell sponges (regular kitchen sponge) as it does a much better job.

I used the Extreme in the past..it's a good "showroom" product, but after a dirve of 5 miles down the road, it no longer has the deep black color and gloss....the best I've found is Wet Jet...an aerosal silicone spray...it's expensive though,about $6 for a can.....I guess the high gloss products have a lot of glycerine and the longer lasting products have a higher concentration of silicone......justlike a lot of things today...they only last as long as the 1st good rain....

Could be the way you apply it...don't know why you experienced that issue. I've never had that problem. Personally, I really prefer the Exteme product because it doesn't sling off the tire either. Having a black car, that can be a real issue with a lot of other products.
No tire product will look as good 5 miles down the road as it did when you applied it in the driveway, nature, gravity and physics see to that every single time. One thing that I've learned about dressing tires...it's always best to start with a tire that's as clean as possible, so make sure you scrub the tires really good.

Dealer inflated mine to 28 pounds at the last service. Seems low.

On every vehicle sold in the US, there is a sticker called the vehicle tire placard, that lists the original tire size and the proper pressure for that size.
If you are using the size listed on the placard, then that is the pressure you should use.
According to Tire Guides - a booklet that summarizes vehicle tire placards, the placard ought to say 30 psi.

The Altimax HP and Goodyear Assurance tires are H rated, aren't they? I too am very dissatisfied with the road noise from my V-rated OEM Michelins. Did you notice any reduction in performance (e.g. more slide when taking an exit ramp at higher speed) when downgrading to the H rated tire?
If any of you have downgraded to H rated in other tires, please respond, too.
Thanks for any help.
