Here at Priority Tire we offer a wide range of models that fit this description. One of our most popular touring all season models is Firestone’s Champion Fuel Fighter. This model combines a safer all weather traction with high comfort levels, a fuel efficient performance and a precise steering responsiveness to ensure the year round driving safety.

Firestone also offers an astounding 70,000 mile treadwear warranty with this model.

FUEL EFFICIENCY

The most important aspect of this model is its fuel saving capability. It received its model name, Champion Fuel Fighter thanks to this feature. It combines the optimized compound and lightweight construction to lower the vehicle’s fuel intake.

In other words, the optimal all season tire compound and the lightweight construction improve the tire’s traction which eases the driving pressure off the tire, reducing its rolling resistance. The rolling resistance is the driving pressure affecting the model, which determines the amount of energy the vehicle needs to keep the tires in motion. The reduced rolling resistance decreases the vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, offering a fuel efficient and environmentally friendly performance all year.

The decreased rolling resistance also manages to ease the pressure off the tire to lengthen its tread life. This is combined with the maximized footprint’s road contact, which avoids irregular tread wear with the even pressure distribution. The driving forces of acceleration, cornering and braking are evenly spread out across the tread area, to avoid uneven wear across the tread area. In this manner, the tire manages to slow the tread wear rate down significantly and guarantee a longer lasting even wear, extending the tread life.

HANDLING AND CONTROLLABILITY

The tread design’s constant road contact boosts the model’s year round controllability. The symmetric ribbed pattern’s maximized road contact increases the steering responsiveness and driving stability, enhancing the driver’s control over the vehicle.

Tires are the only contact between the vehicle and the road surfaces and the vehicle’s controllability entirely depends on them. The three center ribs of the Champion Fuel Fighter closely follow the road surface and maintain a constant road contact at all times. In this manner, the steering becomes faster and more precise in its responsiveness to the driver’s commands, which the structure is stabilized against the driving pressure affecting the model. The faster and more precise steering responsiveness increases the model’s controllability throughout the tire’s lifetime.

The tread design features closed shoulder tread design’s that boost the cornering and maneuvering capability. They increase the number of biting edges gripping the road surface during cornering, which offers a secure maneuvering capability in all weather.

ALL WEATHER PERFORMANCE

All season tires have the advantage on the tire market. They improve the dry, wet and winter weather performance with their tread design and all season compound to guarantee a secure performing capability throughout the model’s lifetime. This allows them to be safely used all year.

The Champion Fuel Fighter features a symmetric tread design, with a high-density siping detail and a special all season tire compound that work together to increase the dry, wet and winter weather driving safety. The compound keeps its flexibility throughout the year, including in colder winter weather, while the tread’s optimal siping detail upgrades the tire’s gripping capability in all conditions.

The model also increases its hydroplaning resistance. The tread sports circumferential grooves that disperse water and slush from below the tire’s footprint to maintain the tire’s constant road contact. As a result, the model avoids dangerous hydroplaning and enhances the wet and winter weather traction.

COMFORTABLE PERFORMANCE

High driving comfort levels are always welcomed during the tire’s performance. Tires which offer boosted comfort manage to lower the road vibrations felt in the vehicle’s cabin while the tires are in motion.

The Champion Fuel Fighter was manufactured with a reinforced twin steel belt construction. This maintains the optimal tire shape under the driving pressure at all times, which allows the tire to closely follow the road surface throughout its performance. This actively absorbs the shock of driving, decreasing the road vibrations felt in the vehicle’s cabin during the drive. This achieves a comfortable and quiet driving experience.
