PEKIN, Illi. - When it came to improving the ride quality and lessening the amount of sound heard within the cabin of the 2015 Buick Verano, engineers at General Motors decided to make adjustments starting from the ground up - literally. The Secret Behind the 2015 Buick Verano's Refined Ride? Why, it is the tires. After plenty tweaking and tuning, engineers were able to reduce the amount of noise and create a more enjoyable ride for customers by altering the Buick Verano's tires.
Tires are a little more complex than one would think. Aside from being large chunks of rubber, the tires are made up of dozens of different components, chemicals and compounds that need to work together perfectly in order to deliver the traction, braking safety, fuel economy, tread life and road manners that today's drivers need. This is a hard combination to come by because when adjusting the tire to accomplish one attribute, it often conflicts with another.
So when it came to developing the secret behind the 2015 Buick Verano's Refined Ride, GM engineers needed to be sure that they created a tire that was the ultimate balance of both performance and comfort. After working closely with Continental Tire, Buick was able to create two tire packages for the Verano - a standard 17-inch P225/50R17 and 18-inch P235/45R18. The 17-inch tires forces on delivering low rolling resistance for better fuel economy and the 18-inch are designed to provide exceptional handling and a sportier feel.
Buick's ultimate goal when optimizing a tire is to reduce some cost, complexity or weight some where else within the vehicle while still delivering the ideal level of comfort and capability.
