Two new Landsail remium all-season touring tires were displayed in the Sentaida International Inc. booth at the Global Tire Expo-Powered by TIA.
1. The City Star+. The five-rib passenger radial will be introduced in 17 sizes for larger vehicles. The sizes range from 185/65R14 86H/T to 205/50R16 87W. "We will expand it as we move forward… probably to 18- and 20-inch sizes," said Maxwell Wee, director of sales.
Three-dimensional and circumferential main grooves not only help assure water-evacuating ability, but also enhance handling and braking performance in wet conditions.
2. City Star. The new four-rib radial will be available in 10 13- through 15-inch sizes for smaller cars. It has three wide longitudinal grooves that are designed to evacuate water and prevent tire lateral slide.
In addition, the tire's reasonable groove angle "can enhance longitudinal traction," said the company.
Wee added that the City Star+ and City Star are M&S rated, in contrast to the company's other all-season touring tire, the LS288. Both tires will be available in December.
