The Firestone TZ700 is the successor of the popular TZ100. It is the perfect choice for the drivers seeking the enhanced performance and safety of a modern tyre, combined with the comfort and low noise of a touring tyre. Designed as a touring tyre the TZ700 provides good ride comfort, low noise and handling performance. The technology and research behind the TZ700 tread pattern ensures reduced noise for the life of the tyre through reduced irregular wear. If safety is a priority then customers can be assured that the TZ700 will deliver in all weather conditions.
The load rating (represented by the numerical value) is related to the maximum weight that tyre can carry. So in this case 105 would refer to a load capacity of 925kg, with most passenger vehicle load indexes range from 62 to 126.
In all instances the tyres load index must meet or exceed the value displayed on the vehicles placard.
The speed category symbol, for example 'S', indicates the maximum speed at which the tyre can carry a load corresponding to its load index. So in this case, 'S' would refer to a maximum speed of 180km/hour.
