New Firestone TZ300α touring tyre
New Firestone TZ300α
Firestone has upgraded its passenger car line-up with the launch of the TZ300α, a touring zone tyre offering family drivers robust and reliable performance with high levels of safety, comfort and quietness.
It will progressively replace the highly-successful TZ200 introduced in 2002.
Firestone has designed the new TZ300α around the values of its core touring-tyre user group: mainstream drivers of family saloons and compacts who enjoy a peaceful and relaxing experience behind the wheel.
The performance target was to give these drivers all the comfort and quietness they expect, while maintaining good handling performance and an easy-to-drive feel.
Stiffness tuned for comfort
To achieve this, Firestone engineers tuned the radial stiffness for a high degree of shock damping, giving a smooth, relaxing ride even on bumpy roads. The block pitch sequence has also been tuned to keep rolling noise low, adding to the peaceful experience at all speeds. The environmental performance of the TZ300α is further enhanced by a reduction in pass-by noise.
Safety and stability
This new member of the Firestone family gives drivers a confident, safe-to-drive feeling in all weather conditions. Performance is reassuring in the wet, with improved braking and outstanding front-rear vehicle balance. The dynamic shaped blocks and longitudinal grooves on the symmetrical, non-directional tread pattern provide smooth water evacuation and high resistance to hydroplaning.
On dry surfaces, the high-traction shoulder blocks give maximum biting edge effect and provide safe, confident braking. The shoulder tie bar design increases block stiffness, while further reducing noise levels as well as providing more resistance to heel and toe wear. The overall result is a highly predictable ride with excellent road stability and a comfortable easy-to-drive feel.
Families in Europe have been driving on Firestone for generations and trust the brand for its reliability and good value in the standard price segment. The stylish new TZ300α, available initially in 14 sizes to fit 14” to 16” rims, is designed to strengthen this reputation.
