Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max tire slated as OE for Chevy Volt

GM Chevy Volt Tires

One of Goodyear’s newest radials, the Assurance Fuel Max, has been designated as the original equipment tire on the 2011 Chevrolet Volt. The Chevy Vol garnered some serious attention from the media when it was unveiled as the first hi-tech vehicle to run solely on an electric motor. The Volt does feature a small gasoline engine, but the engine is primarily used to recharge the vehicles batteries or to power the electric motor.

With gas mileage and eco-friendliness the obvious centerpiece of the Volt, GM has made the obvious choice to choose OE tires that provide low rolling resistance and better gas mileage. The Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max tires provide a 4 percent improvement in highway fuel economy, and are starting to show up in the inventories of wholesale tire dealers around the country.
