Cooper Has 2 New Tires for the Chinese Market
Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.’s Asian subsidiary has introduced an ultra high performance sport utility SUV tire and an all-terrain sport utility 4x4 tire for the Chinese market.
Both tires were designed and developed by the the Cooper Asia Technical Center (ATC).
Cooper says the Starfire 710 is a new all-terrain sport utility vehicle 4x4 tire offering reliable performance and a dependable ride.

Its strong body ply and tread belt ensure high puncture resistance. The Starfire 710 also offers smooth handling and lower noise for a comfortable experience in highway and urban driving, according to the company.
Starfire 710 is available in 10 T rated sizes, ranging from 16 to 18 inch. Two additional sizes will be available later this year.
Cooper says the new Mastercraft Courser Sport 100 is an ultra-high-performance sport utility vehicle (SUV) tire for China’s luxury SUV market.
Mastercraft Courser Sport 100 adopts an asymmetric tread design, providing precise handling in high speed driving. Its grooves and new silica-infused tread compound enable exceptional wet traction. The tire also offers comfortable, quiet performance as well as an attractive appearance, according to the company.
Mastercraft Courser Sport 100 is available in five sizes: 235/50R19W, 255/45R19W, 275/40R20Y, 275/45R19W and 275/45R20W. Additional Y and W speed rated sizes are scheduled for later in the year.
