Among the Discoverer SRX’s features is Cooper’s wear square. First introduced in its CS5 touring tire, the wear square allows drivers to quickly assess the approximate tread remaining on the tire, Cooper said. The square is has six points of reference around the inside and outside of the tire and can also signal uneven tire wear and possible wheel alignment issues, the tiremaker noted.

The SRX tire uses a new silica tread compound that provides road-gripping performance and reduced rolling resistance. The tread compound paired with Cooper’s Stabiledge technology and 3D sipes helps to deliver more road surface grip for increased traction in wet weather conditions and light snow, Cooper said.
