Bridgestone wouldn’t be the largest tire manufacturer in the world if they only focused on one thing. Of course not. The company utilized several cutting-edge technologies in the Turanza QuietTrack to improve driving dynamics, wet handling and braking, snow traction, and durability.
According to the Japanese manufacturer, the Turanza QuietTrack brings an improvement of 20% in wet traction and 44% more traction on snow when compared to the Turanza Serenity Plus.
Before we jump to conclusions, though, let’s see what ingredients Bridgestone used to make this tire perform at a high level. The company utilized some interesting technologies, specifically to improve comfort and durability. Let’s elaborate below.
One of the more popular all-terrain tires is the Pirelli Scorpion ATR, a model that has been present over a decade on the tire market. Through the years, the Scorpion ATR earned a largely positive reputation, especially for its on-road dynamics. The Scorpion ATR is a tenacious and reliable tire that provides drivers with on-road comfort, excellent traction, and resistance to wear.
The newest addition to Pirelli’s lineup of all-terrain tires is the Scorpion All Terrain Plus. As a successor to the Scorpion ATR, the new model promises much better off-road traction on all surfaces, while also improving on-road performance.
The Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus doesn’t break new ground in any of the categories. What it does, though, is offering a great balance between on-road dynamics and off-road traction.
The Starfire Solarus AS is a touring all-season tire designed for owners of compact cars, minivans, mid-size sedans, and compact crossovers.
The company did a great job of covering the most popular sizes in the category. You can find the Solarus AS in 15-inch, 16-inch, 17-inch, and 18-inch wheel diameter.
In my Falken Azenis FK510 review, I’ll talk mainly about how the tire feels behind the wheel, how it handles hard cornering, powerful accelerations, and strong braking.
Given the fact that you won’t be driving these tires aggressively all of the time, I’ll also touch on the ride quality, noise levels, and treadlife. Of course, you can also find all the features of the tire, which is great for enthusiasts that want to learn more about ultra-high-performance summer tires.
Cooper tire is a manufacturer that has the most extensive tire portfolio designed for SUVs, trucks, and crossovers. They not only offer excellent all-terrain and mud-terrain models, but they also have multiple highway tires and touring tires.
One of their most popular products is the Cooper Evolution H/T, a tire that tries to combine good overall performance with low purchasing price and ownership costs. This model is not the only touring all-season tire from Cooper – it’s joined by the Discoverer EnduraMax, a tire made for driving over rough terrain, and the Discoverer SRX, a more upscale touring option.
Most SUVs and trucks are equipped with touring or highway tires, which are primarily designed for use on paved roads. These tires can be used on hardpacked surfaces, such as dirt and gravel, but only in a stretch.
Prolonged use on these abrasive surfaces can damage the tread compound on the tire, introducing chips and cracks. That’s especially the case with touring tires, which usually come with softer and less-durable tread compounds.
The thing is if you want an excellent tire for paved roads, but also one that can endure on hardpacked surfaces, not many choices are available on the market. Fortunately, Cooper Tire developed one such tire – the new for 2020, Discoverer EnduraMax.
