Thoughts on Starfire RS-C 2.0

Starfire features an all-season tread compound that helps in delivering traction and handling on wet and dry surfaces. Trust us, you will be impressed by the tire’s traction on snow and ice for the price that this one is offered.

The continuous center ribs enhance the handling and stability of the tire which is rare in such a low-cost tire. Additionally, the solid shoulder blocks make sure that the tire shoulder is rigid which is essential for handling and braking.

The four wide circumferential grooves reduce the risk of hydroplaning considerably by providing a larger groove ratio. Moreover, the incorporation of computer-optimized variable pitch tread offers a smooth and quiet ride and reduces road noise. The two steel belts are incorporated to enhance the strength and durability of the tire.

Pros

  • Dry and wet traction
  • Comfortable and quiet ride
  • Tread-life
  • Inexpensive

Cons

  • No guarantee on mileage
