Facts to Consider When Buying Tires

Snow-Tires-Update-Gear-Patrol-LeadThere may be more to your tires than you think—and it goes well beyond seasonality and vehicle type. Today’s consumer has a lot of options and many factors to consider beyond the happy-go-lucky summer tire. We talk to Jim Davis, tire expert and Goodyear® public relations manager, to shed some light on the subject.

“Tires really matter—the four tires on a vehicle are the only points that touch the road surface. A tire has to transmit grip, traction, cornering performance, braking and ride—in any weather.” So, it’s worth the investment.

All-Season Tires
This jack-of-all-trades tire may or may not be right for you. “The decision to use winter tires versus summer or all-season tires is a personal decision,” Davis says. “A consultation with a local tire retailer is a good idea. Much of the decision is dependent upon the expected weather conditions a driver will face and the level of driving confidence he or she feels when driving in inclement weather, especially severe winter conditions.”

Winter Tires
Snow, slush, ice—even just cold, dry streets—are all enemies of traction. The tread compound in winter tires is made to remain pliable in temperatures below 45°F, and grooves are widened for heightened grip in the slipperiest of conditions. “Regions that typically get a lot of snow and ice, or high elevation areas, can be good prospects for winter tire use. Also, many drivers with rear-wheel drive cars, especially sporty cars with summer ultra-high performance tires, may want to consider using winter tires,” Davis says.

All-Terrain Tires
Not meant for city slickers, all-terrain tires are best suited for pickups and SUVs, Davis says, even those that spend most of their time on the highway. “[They give] the driver the ability to go off-road at times—perhaps for camping, hunting, etc. These are typically tires that feature more open space in the traction lugs and grooves of the tread, and are ideal for operating in rugged terrain on occasion.”

Run-Flat Tires
Want to lose that spare tire in your trunk? Consider run-flat tires, designed to keep on rolling far enough to get you to a service station or safe place if you run low on tire pressure. “Run-flat tires typically have a reinforced sidewall, meaning it can support the weight of the vehicle even with zero air pressure. This feature allows the driver, in most cases, to continue driving for a limited distance at a moderate speed,” Davis says.

Sport Performance Tires
If you like speed and precision, and you’ve got the sporty or touring car to match—which likely came with sport performance tires originally—look into these beauts. “These tires match the car’s focus on driving features such as steering response, excellent grip and cornering precision,” Davis tells us.

Fuel Efficient Tires
Owning a hybrid is not the only way to cut back on fuel costs. “Tires identified as ‘fuel-efficient’ typically have tread compounds that help them to achieve lower rolling resistance,” Davis says, which means they use less energy. Basically, you cover more ground without burning more fuel. Here’s Davis’s tip: “Keeping your tires properly inflated is one of the fastest, easiest and least expensive ways to improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.”

All these features, in most cases, can be mixed and matched—summer sport performance tires that are run-flats, for example. It’s about finding the right balance. “A tire store salesperson can provide recommendations based on the type of vehicle, the driving behaviors of the consumer and the various features desired (maximum grip, long tread wear, fuel efficiency, etc.), but in the end the purchase decision is up to the buyer.”

Cooper Unveils New All Season Tire: Zeon RS3-G1

M-Cooper-Zeon-RS3-G1-1Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has unveiled its latest all-season passenger car tire: the Cooper Zeon RS3-G1 for high performance vehicles and drivers.

“The RS3-G1 is a marvel of Cooper’s greatest cutting-edge technologies,” says Scott Jamieson, director of product management for North America. “We say this new tire gives high performance a ‘gut check’ because it redefines what it means to participate in that category at a higher level. The RS3-G1 ushers in a new era for Cooper in terms of delivering breakthrough product that among other critical benefits, offers incredible grip, holding the road at up to 1g in tight corners with its wide, flat tread arc that creates a stable, square footprint on the road.”
Alongside a race-inspired sidewall, the tire’s tread compound and design create grip, stability, and durability, the company says.
The tread design of the Zeon RS3-G1 isn’t just for a high performance look. The tire has been designed with more rubber on the outside shoulder and intermediate rib to grip and provide stability during cornering maneuvers and to reduce tire noise. Cooper says the Zeon RS3-G1 also provides longer-lasting biting edges due to its 3D full-depth sipes, which go deep into the tread elements. The sipes help the tire tread blocks maintain a stable shape during acceleration, braking, and cornering. The full-depth aspect of the sipes means that even when the tire is half-worn, there are still sipes to provide biting edges for consistent performance.

In addition to its performance attributes, the tire also features Cooper’s Wear Square, a visual indicator on the tire that allows drivers to quickly and easily assess the remaining tread life. As the tire wears, the Wear Square transitions among five stages, beginning with a full square on new tires and transforming into an exclamation mark when the tread reaches 2/32s of an inch, indicating it is time to replace the tire. The Wear Square can also signal uneven tire wear and possible wheel alignment issues.

“Cooper understands that tires matter,” says Jamieson. “Tires must deliver grip and stability, and be responsive to changing road conditions. The Cooper Zeon RS3-G1 was built for people who love to drive, whether that means a commute to work every day or exploring new roads on the weekends. Cooper knows that every mile counts and tires must keep up with drivers once the rubber meets the road. The new RS3-G1 features innovative technology to deliver on the highest expectations of today’s most discerning drivers.”

The RS3-G1 is available in 42 sizes, fitting wheels between 16 inches and 20 inches. The tire also includes a free 45-day road test and a 50,000 mile treadwear protection when the same size is on both axles.

Michelin North America Inc. is recalling 129,000 BFGoodrich brand commercial light truck tires sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Approximately 104,000 of the recalled tires were sold in the U.S. market.

Michelin Premier A/S Ranked Top for Touring All Season Tires

According to a Tire Rack survey, the Michelin Premier A/S was ranked the best performing touring all season tire. The average score for the Premier A/S was 9.2, barely ahead of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus and its 9.1 rating. The Continental PureContact with EcoPlus technology is third with an average score of 8.7.
M-michelin-premier-14-1
“The Michelin Premier A/S enters in our survey results as the ‘grandest’ of the grand touring all-season tires,” says Tire Rack. “Receiving category-leading wet and winter/snow performance survey ratings confirms drivers appreciate how the Premier A/S tire’s foul-weather traction has impressed us ever since our introductory drive.

“In order to experience the Premier A/S’s EverGrip technology last winter, we conducted our introductory test with both new tires, as well as tires shaved to 5/32-inch of remaining tread depth to represent worn tires. With the Premier A/S’s worn tire performance exceeding its competitors’ new tires’ performance, we’re expecting to see the Premier A/S retain favorable wet and winter/snow performance ratings as North American drivers experience their first full winter.

Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. introduced a new all-terrain tire developed specifically for Canadian drivers – the Discoverer X/T 4.
Discoverer-XT4-001
The Discoverer X/T 4 features a five-rib all-terrain tread pattern and an optimized silica tread compound that work together to increase grip and winter traction without sacrificing tread wear, Cooper said.
