Tire Rack has classified the WeatherReady as a Grand Touring all-season.

UTQG rating is 700-A-A
Warranty is 60k

This is surprising, since the compromises needed to make it perform well enough to earn the mountain-and-snowflake symbol would make the fair-weather performance not as good as, say, a CS5 Ultra. I thought for sure they'd put it in the passenger all-season category!

Tire Rack makes no reference to "all weather" or any other trendy new name for all-season tires that are actually good in snow. But if it's like the other all-season tires with the severe service logo, it won't last the 60k they claim (Toyo Celsius, Nokian WRG3, Vredestein Quatrac 5)

Some of the sizes are US-made, but most come from Chile.

In the description, TR makes this disclaimer:

Nevertheless, I look forward to seeing TR's testing on them!

Hopefully they fixed the noise issues with the old triple treads. Had a set on a camry and they sounded like mud terrains after 20k miles. Big issue with those.

Interesting concept, the tires look nice. I'd certainly give them a try, if I needed new tires and the price was right.

Surely they come in more than the seven sizes that TR has listed...?

Goodyear already has an all-weather tire in Europe, now in its second generation, the Vector 4Seasons Gen-2, which gets good test results.

https://www.goodyear.eu/en_gb/consumer/tires/vector_4seasons_gen-2.VEC4SEASG2.html

Since Consumer Reports makes the claim that the Nokian WR G3 and Toyo Celsius are as good, and even better than some dedicated winter tires, I'm curious what they will have to say about the Assurance WeatherReady

Not surprising since its a H and V rated tire that is tirerack's grand touring.

AFAIK that is nearly the only criteria Tirerack uses for separating certain classes of tires.

(for example passenger touring, grand touring, UHP all season etc)

@Rand, not entirely true

For example, most of the Fuel Max sizes are H and V, but TR called them passenger all-season. And the WeatherReady's immediate predecessor, the TripleTred, was also classified as passenger all-season and mostly H and V.

The speed ratings may separate the difference between grand touring and standard touring, but not the difference between grand touring and passenger all-season.

That said, I do agree with you that TR does put a bit too much emphasis on speed rating in determining the performance categories.

Grand Touring All-Season tires are often used as Original Equipment and place more emphasis on handling and high-speed capabilities than Standard Touring tires

Passenger All-Season tires emphasize good wear, a plush ride, and predictable handling.


Any tire good enough to earn the 3-peak symbol, especially that plus a 60k warranty, won't handle as well as a ComforTred Touring, CS5 Ultra, PureContact, Premier, or H/V-rated RT43. The WeatherReady is probably as good as the TripleTred in non-winter conditions, though.

I had Kumho ECSTA Platinum LX 235/40r18 95W and TR classified them as Grand Touring, and that's with the W-speed rating.

It was a tire that did emphasize more comfort than cornering grip

These should be a nice replacement for the Nokain WRGs I've been using. Made in USA and available through the dealer of my choice!

All the sizes aren't available yet. But they previously said the only 15-inch size will be 195/65-15

It's not tire rack' s fault that Goodyear doesn't make it in that size.

Check Goodyear's website for yourself

Still a goodyear. Never had luck with them over the years. That being said it is an interesting concept.
