Goodyear are delighted that the 2010 Toyota Prius, with its excellent fuel economy and low emissions, now comes standard with their new fuel-efficient tyres.
The Assurance Fuel Max tyres feature a fuel-saving tread compound that helps reduce energy loss as the tyre rolls.
In addition, Wet and Dry Tread Zones enhance all-season traction. The Wet Tread Zone features dual Aquachannel grooves to help evacuate water away from the treadface when driving on wet roads. The Dry Tread Zone helps enhance handling and grip for confident maneuvering on dry pavement.
Assurance Fuel Max also is available as a replacement tyre choice for many popular vehicles.
The selection of the new Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max as a standard tyre for the 2010 Toyota Prius follows earlier announcements of the tyre also being chosen for the 2010 Ford Fusion S and the exclusive fitment for the 2011 Chevrolet Volt.
Goodyear tyres are original equipment on many vehicles from Acura, Audi, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Hummer, Infiniti, Isuzu, Jeep, Land Rover, Lexus, Mazda, Mercury, Nissan and Toyota.
Traditionally, more new vehicles in North America are equipped with Goodyear tyres than any other brand.
