New Cooper tire targets luxury cars
Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has introduced its first premium-level touring tire that is offered with three different speed ratings: T, H and V.
The T-rated version of the Lifeliner Touring SLE (Sport Luxury Edition) contains a dual arc tread for even load distribution. "Its high sipe density adds hundreds of biting edges for wet/winter traction and a smooth, quiet ride," says Cooper officials.
The tire's H- and V-rated versions have wide circumferential and lateral tread grooves for quicker water evacuation in wet conditions, plus a spiral wound nylon overwrap for longer tread life.
