Dave’s Corner Garage continues to find for our many readers, true value and real-world performance in tire manufacturing.
Introducing the new Sailun Inspire, an impressive tire that delivers a balanced formula of premium comfort and performance engineered into a very versatile all-season touring tire. Although touring tires don’t often evoke the same thrilling images and excitement of ultra-high-performance tires, they also aren’t meant to be bland and boring either. The Sailun Inspire aims to fill the gap somewhere in-between fun and functional, and that’s why touring tires are on trend to be more popular than ever.
Research indicated a growing demand for well-balanced all-season tires, more specifically in the touring tire category — where popular compacts, sedans, crossovers and SUVs make up an increasing majority of car sales.
The mass-market appeal of family-friendly crossovers and SUVs accounts for 44% of new car sales in North America, a trend we’ve seen for nearly a decade now. The uniqueness of The Inspire- to offer a wide range of 48 popular sizes for passenger cars, crossovers and SUV ideally suited to the safety, comfort and versatility found in an all-season touring tire. Consumers are choosing compacts, crossovers and SUVs to meet their more utilitarian lifestyle, which means their tires need to be too. North American drivers are seeking greater practicality and value than ever before, in addition to a strong balance of comfort and performance.
“Expertly engineered and developed here in North America, to meet customers’ needs now and in the future. We knew this tire had to do a lot and more importantly, it had to do it very well in order to make a lasting impact on the touring tire category. We think we’ve done just that with the Sailun Inspire,” says Christine Rouleau, Director of Corporate Sales, Sailun Tire.
Engineered to be quiet, comfortable and secure on the road, the Inspire offers confident all-season performance with worry-free 120,000-kilometre limited tread life protection.
The new Sailun Inspire really checks all the boxes,” states Wayne Cuculuzzi, Director of Consumer Products, Sailun Tire.
Created with the latest tire technology, engineers formulated a new long-wear-life SmartGrip™ rubber compound that increases traction, control and durability with responsive performance measured to outperform competitors in both wet and dry slalom testing.
The Inspire was measured and tested against three other notable competitors with far higher price tags. End result? The new Inspire clearly came out on top… beating out best-in-class competitors and outperforming top tier brands costing nearly twice as much,” says Mark Pereira, Marketing Communications Manager, Sailun Tire.
The all-new SilentTread™ pattern uses staggered tuning technology to effectively reduce road noise and vibration while also enhancing levels of ride comfort and safety. The variable pitch pattern and tread block sequence of the Inspire make it a very quiet tire with impressive stopping performance and wear-resistance.
“The advanced 3D multi-sipe technology is engineered to expand and absorb substances found between the road and tire. The 3D sipe design creates confident all-season traction, braking and steering control that regenerates with tire wear for longer-lasting performance. The large, square shoulder design and optimized casing profile help increase steering input by making maximum road contact under hard acceleration, braking and cornering.
Dave’s Corner Garage recommends this unique breakthrough in design and performance and welcomes you to test drive The Inspire.
