Assurance DuraPlus lets drivers go up to 100,000km¹ and comes reinforced with DuPont Kevlar for added protection
BANGKOK, 26 January 2015 —— Imagine a set of tyres that can take a driver the grueling distance of approximately two and a half times around the world. The Goodyear Assurance DuraPlus is engineered to let drivers go up to 100,000km¹ and comes reinforced with DuPont™ Kevlar® for added protection, delivering tremendous value through a longer lasting and more durable tyre.
Designed for small- to mid-sized passenger vehicles, the Assurance DuraPlus tyre boasts an improved version of Goodyear’s proprietary TredLife Technology™ with a new enhanced tread compound, combined with a DuPont Kevlar overlay for added reinforcing.
“With consumer-driven needs at the centre of all our tyre innovations, Goodyear Thailand is launching the Assurance DuraPlus, the company’s latest passenger tyre for today’s value-conscious customer,” said Finbarr O’Connor, Goodyear’s managing director for Thailand.
“We understand that some drivers are looking for a tyre that can take them further with minimal worry. The new Assurance DuraPlus has been designed specifically with these people in mind.
“With the overall enhancements in the Assurance DuraPlus, drivers now have a tyre that can go further and provide better protection against road hazards.”

Goodyear’s TredLife Technology increases the usable life of the tyre for longer mileage. In the Assurance DuraPlus, it provides up to 100,000km¹ of road travel.
TredLife Technology comprises of three key elements. Firstly, an advanced carbon-based tread compound with higher carbon content provides increased resistance to road wear. In addition, TredLife Technology also incorporates a larger tread width design, which comes from an optimised cavity shape, putting more rubber in contact with the road for a longer lasting tread. Finally, a maximised rubber volume provides more road contact area, and combined with a deep tread depth, allows for more wearable rubber.
Reinforced with DuPont Kevlar for added protection
The introduction of a DuPont Kevlar overlay into the Assurance DuraPlus increases the tyre’s durability. Used in military grade equipment, this lightweight material maintains stiffness and strength even under high temperature conditions when the tyre is in motion, giving drivers’ added protection against road hazards.
Available in 14-inch to 17-inch rim diameters and in multiple sizes for a wide range of small- to mid-sized passenger vehicles, Goodyear Assurance DuraPlus is the tyre to turn to for outstanding mileage and Protection.
