Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max

Our 2014 Honda Accord EX-L came shod with Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max tires in 215/55R17 size and V-speed rating. After 8 thousand miles I have to say that these tires provide excellent fuel economy and decent wear, but the ride could be better.

After 8K miles, there is virtually no wear, but the ride is somewhat firmer than what I recall when they were new. The treadlife mileage warranty is 65,000 miles or 6 years, if bought aftermarket. On our car, these were OEM tires so no mileage warranty applies.

The noise is muted, but the squealing in turns is discouraging. These are not performance-oriented tires by any means.

The fuel economy is impressive, some of which is due to these tires. I average 36 mpg with freeway commute resulting in over 40 mpg. But once they wear out, which will take a while, I am going to get something else
