FINDLAY, Ohio (July 10, 2007) — Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has introduced the Mastercraft Avenger Touring LSR all-season tire to its lineup of Avenger products.
The premium touring tire will be available in a T-rated four-rib and H- and V-rated five-rib designs, Cooper said. The tires are aimed at luxury sedans, minivans and crossover vehicles.
The tires, which carry Uniform Tire Quality Grade (UTQG) treadwear ratings of 640 AA to 780 AA, are now available, a spokeswoman said.
Each design will be offered in 29 sizes, ranging from 14- to 18-inch rim diameters. The tires will be made at Cooper's plants in Tupelo, Miss., and Albany, Ga.
The tire is designed to offer ride comfort and responsive handling while reducing noise, the tire maker said. High-density sipes also are meant to improve stopping and grip on wet and snow-covered roads.
The Avenger Touring's T-rated products come with an 80,000-mile limited treadwear warranty while the H- and V-rated products carry a 60,000-mile warranty. Cooper also offers a 45-day road test on the tire.
