Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.’s new Starfire Solarus AS is designed to provide all-season performance for passenger cars and crossover vehicles at a value price.
The new Solarus AS replaces the Starfire SF340 and the Starfire RS-C 2.0.
The company says the Solarus AS offers an enhanced tread compound and tread profile for all-season traction. The tire 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. Carefully placed sipes provide biting edges in wet, dry and winter conditions.
The new tire 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% of the market, but the new Starfire Solarus AS is available in sizes covering 81% of the passenger touring market. This tire also features an upgraded 50,000-mile warranty,” says Scott Jamieson, Cooper’s director of product management.
The Starfire Solarus AS will be available in 52 sizes this year.
