Solarus AS Joins Cooper's Starfire Line
Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.’s new Starfire Solarus AS offers all-season performance for passenger cars and crossover vehicles — at a value.
The new Solarus AS replaces the Starfire SF340 and the Starfire RS-C 2.0. The new tire reduces overlap in speed ratings within the Starfire line and offers more vehicle fitments than its predecessors. It will be available in 52 sizes this year.
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. Sipes provide biting edges in wet, dry and winter conditions.
