WR 205/50R17 XL High Performance Tire
Starfire WR. FEATURES AND BENEFITS: All weather traction High speed controllability Reduced road noise levels Longer lasting tread life. OVERVIEW: The Starfire WR is a high performance all season tire manufactured for passenger vehicles. Starfire offers a 40,000 mile treadwear warranty with this model.The tire promotes great all weather traction and road gripping ability. The asymmetric tread design and the all season tire compound boost the dry, wet and winter weather road gripping ability. The asymmetric designs tread elements firmly grip the road surface throughout the year, while the tire compound keeps its flexible traction in all weather, including in winter temperatures. The tread designs wide circumferential grooves prevent hydroplaning by dispersing water and slush from below the tires footprint. The better all weather traction and hydroplaning resistance ensure a secure year round driving experience.The model boosts its controllability by guaranteeing constant road contact. The optimal tire footprint increases the road-to-tire ratio and the treads continuous center rib maintains the tires road contact at all times. The larger contact area and constant road contact work together to improve the steering responsiveness and driving stability even at high speeds. The steering response time and accuracy are enhanced, while the tires structure is stabilized against the driving pressure affecting the model. The treads shoulder tread blocks, with the siping detail, manage to upgrade the braking capability. They create friction at the moment of braking, effectively shortening the braking distance and providing a safer performance.The tire was designed with a variable pitch sequence. This variable pitch sequence decreases the road noise levels heard in the vehicles cabin while the tires are in motion. This is achieved by creating a sound frequency that is capable of negating the road and tread pattern noise generated during the drive. The reduced road and tread pattern noise heard by the passengers ensures a quiet and comfortable driving experience in all conditions.The WR offers a lengthened tread life. The asymmetric tread pattern was designed with a larger, optimal road contact area that keeps the tires road contact constantly. In this manner, the tire is able to evenly distribute the driving pressure along the tread area. The equally spread out forces of acceleration, cornering and braking prevents uneven tread wear formations, which extends the tread life and the tires usability significantly, making the model more cost-efficient.
