Starfire tires have been manufactured as an associate brand of Cooper Tire in the United States for several decades. They have a good reputation for decent wear life and performance considering the price point. Starfire takes pride in the fact that they manufacture, and test in the US. This helps ensure that the tires are optimized for North American road conditions and vehicle types. Extensive product testing is conducted at test facilities near San Antonio, Texas throughout the year.
Starfire has an all-season and summer performance tire, a long-wearing touring tire for sedans, minivans and economy passenger cars, as well as on highway, and all-terrain light truck and SUV tires. Every style of Starfire tires is competitively priced, with never any skimping on safety or quality.
Our best selling Starfire tire is the RS-R 2.0. It is designed for high performance vehicles with features that include:
· Wide central ribs that lend themselves to increased steering response and feedback
· Decreased noise levels thanks to slightly different sized tread features around the tire that cuts down on the whistling noise sometimes apparent in inexpensive tires.
· 4 longitudinal grooves that evacuate water and slush to combat hydroplaning.
· Specially formulated silica compounds that give you increased grip on wet roads without compromising tread-life.
The RS-R comes with a UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) of 300 treadwear and an A rating for both traction and temperature. This grading is very much in line with more premium priced performance tires, and one other reason why the Starfire is a solid recommendation.
