Cooper Tire Launches New Starfire Solarus AS

| July 12, 2018

Solarus

Cooper Tire is launching the Solarus AS, which offers an enhanced tread compound and tread profile for all-season traction.  It will replace both the Starfire SF340 and the Starfire RS-C 2.0.

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. Strategically 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 percent of the market, but the new Starfire Solarus AS is available in sizes covering 81 percent of the passenger touring market. This tire also features an upgraded 50,000-mile warranty,” said Scott Jamieson, Cooper’s Director of Product Management.

The Starfire Solarus AS will be available in 52 popular sizes this year.
