Cooper Tire introduces Starfire Solarus AS
Cooper Tire added to its Starfire line of tyres with the all new Starfire Solarus ASTM.
The new tyre provides all-season performance for passenger cars and crossover vehicles at a value price point. The Starfire Solarus AS will be available in 52 sizes this year.
Replacing both the Starfire SF340TM and the Starfire RS-C 2.0TM, the Solarus AS offers an enhanced tread compound and tread profile for all-season traction. The tyre is designed to provide a smooth ride with controlled handling, and features deep, lateral shoulder grooves to ensure excellent traction throughout the life of the tire. Strategically placed sipes provide biting edges in wet, dry and winter conditions.
It also reduces overlap in speed ratings within the Starfire line and offers more vehicle fitments than its predecessors. “The product size offerings of the Starfire SF340 and RS-C 2.0 covered 65 percent of the market, but the new Starfire Solarus AS is available in sizes covering 81 percent of the passenger touring market. This tire also features an upgraded 50,000-mile warranty,” said Scott Jamieson, Cooper’s Director of Product Management.
