The Firestone Affinity Touring S4 Fuel Fighter is a touring all season tire manufactured for passenger vehicles. Firestone offers a 50,000 mile treadwear warranty with this tire model.
The tire promotes excellent all weather traction. The all season tire compound and the deep tread elements increase the dry, wet and winter weather road gripping ability. The compound does not lose its flexibility in colder temperatures, while the optimized ribbed design finds firm grip in all weather. The deeper and wider circumferential and lateral grooves actively disperse water and slush from below the tire footprint to effectively resist hydroplaning situations. The better hydroplaning prevention and exceptional all weather traction ensure a safer year round driving experience.
The model is extremely fuel efficient, which is where it has received its name, Fuel Fighter, from. The compound was made with the proprietary polymer technology that utilizes rubber material elements to decrease the tire’s weight and increase its traction. This eases the driving pressure off the tire and lowers its rolling resistance. The rolling resistance is the force affecting the tire which determines how much energy the vehicle needs to maintain the tire’s motion. The lower the rolling resistance is, the less fuel the vehicle will need to consume. The reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions guarantee a fuel efficient and environmentally friendly drive.
The tread design increases the model’s controllability. The ribbed tread design’s solid center rib keeps its road contact constantly, which ensures improved levels of steering responsiveness and driving stability. The tire is stabilized against the driving pressure affecting it, while the steering responsiveness to the driver’s instructions becomes faster and more accurate. The tread also manages to enhance the cornering and maneuvering capability. It promotes additional biting edges that firmly grip the road surface in such situations and it ensures a safer drive and better performance. The internal structure’s twin steel belts also maintain the tire’s shape even under the driving pressure affecting it. The result is the optimized tread shape that promotes an upgraded performance.
The Affinity Touring S4 Fuel Fighter offers a comfortable drive. The maintained optimal shape and the polyester cord body allow the tire to closely follow the road surface in all weather. This decreases the road vibrations felt in the vehicle’s cabin, as the shock of driving is lowered significantly. The special angled shoulder tread design manages to reduce the road noise generated while the tires are in motion. The lowered road noise and vibration levels ensure a quiet and enjoyable driving experience.
