FINDLAY, Ohio — Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. is adding an all-season, ultra-high-performance tire line to its Mastercraft brand — the Avenger M8 — that's both W speed rated and backed by a 40,000-mile treadwear warranty.
"Whether trekking across the country or cruising around town, your ride should be as smooth as possible. That's why Mastercraft is debuting its most comfortable ultra-high-performance tire yet — the Avenger M8," Scott Jamieson, director of product management for North America, said.
The new tire features a "noise-sealing" tread design and enhanced elastic base layering, Cooper said, providing precise handling and stability needed for a smooth and quiet riding experience in wet or dry weather.
The tire also features a broad tread width and wide center rib — design elements that provide "substantial ground contact" for stability and responsiveness — along with seven circumferential grooves for faster water drainage to guard against hydroplaning.
The Mastercraft Avenger M8 launches in 19 popular sizes, ranging from 250/60R16 95V to 245/45R19 98W.
