Goodyear Wrangler TripleMax - 4

Goodyear has launched its latest high performance tyre called the Goodyear Wrangler TripleMax in Malaysia. Designed for mid-size SUVs, the Wrangler TripleMax delivers superior braking performance, shorter wet braking and road hazard resistant features, offering a safer and more fun driving experience with the family.

The middle SUV segment is clearly a growing market, and is expected to increase with a compound annual growth rate of more than 12% from 2012 to 2020. This is evident as sales of SUVs in Malaysia grew 21.3% YTD in June 2016. In order to meet the growing demand, Goodyear will continue to innovate and offer high performance products to their consumers.

With consumer-driven needs at the center of its tyre innovations, the new Wrangler TripleMax provides peace-of-mind when driving, keeping families safer across road conditions. Goodyear developed the Wrangler TripleMax with an improved version of its proprietary Hydrogrip Technology, along with its innovative tread design, optimized carcass and high grip compound, delivers shorter wet braking performance.

Its proprietary Hydrogrip Technology comes a host of features that deliver superior braking performance. The tread and cavity design of the new Wrangler TripleMax with its larger surface area contact patch, ensures an enhanced braking ability through biting edges and large block elements.

Goodyear’s Hydrogrip Technology provides an innovative new tread compound, maximizing control via a larger surface area contact patch, and translating to more rubber contact on the road. It improves braking ability by way of biting edges with large block elements. The tyres are also equipped with a wide face and optimized cavity with 5 Rib Tread matching which concentrates pressure distribution on key block elements during braking. This also provides the tyres a higher ESBR with optimized polymer blend, giving the tyres better grip and a shorter braking distance on wet roads. All of these combined together offers a more comfortable ride.

The proprietary Hydrogrip Technology is a combination of three elements:

1. Superior Braking Performance: The HydroGrip Technology used for the Wrangler TripleMax, is made with large blocks and a high number of biting edges to increase contact to road asperity. This delivers better braking and grip on wet and dry roads.

2. Wet Performance: The HydroGrip Technology used for the Wrangler TripleMax, is made with enhanced ESBR compound for multipurpose performances to improve braking and grip on both wet and dry roads.

3. Road Hazard Resistant: The Wrangler TripleMax designed with rim flange protector, provides more material on the sidewall to protect the rim and tire against road hazards.

For the Malaysian market, Goodyear Malaysia is offering 16″, 17″ and 18″ rim diameter variants, with the subsequent sizes being added to the range in due time. It retails from RM443.72 to RM675.22 inclusive of GST, depending on different sizes.

You can now purchase the Wrangler TripleMax tyres at Goodyear Autocare and Servitekar outlets, as well as authorized Goodyear dealers nationwide.

    Wow, the price so kaw. Thought want to try out good year suv tyre…
    Now the price seriously holding me back. Btw, anyone try out the tyre? mind to share some experience?
    Would consider to take it, if it really worth for the value.

      Try to go around the tyre shop and survey because different shop offer different price, but the price range is fixed within the amounts.

      • Sammy Izabella

        Exactly, Goodyear set a limit to every dealer.
        So they will not over the limit.

        • Amanda

          but it also depend on dealer himself so that i just go back the shop that i always go only

    • Sammy Izabella

      I would said the price is standard.
      Since you got a SUV and you should prepare to bear with high maintenance fee then normal vehicle. Goodyear is premium brand so the price is higher… You can try to look for budget brand like Toyo tyre and Sime tyre… the price is cheaper, but performance is not as good as Goodyear.

        My friend’s car is using Viking, but it not premium brand.
        Not sure whether the performance is good or not as the price is really cheap though.

        • Ong Dave

          if want to buy premium brand also definitely a lot of people buy those hot brand like michilin or continental because the price is almost same or more a bit only
          Viking not much people know or use because not much shops sell it and not much advertisement about it and causing it less competitive compare to others

        Yeah I know SUV tire pricing is higher, but did not expect that much higher. I admit that I’m just cheapskate finding that speding extra 200+ is quite difficult for me. To be honest I prefer economic tyre rather than premium… Haha, but I still don’t mind spending more to try out the premium tyre, if the performance is huge different.
