Cooper Tire is showcasing a wide range of its newest and most popular products in booth #43019 at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas now through Nov. 2.
The new Cooper Discoverer AT3 lineup encourages SEMA attendees to take on the road and what lies beyond with three distinct all-season, all-terrain tires for SUVs and pick-up trucks.
The Discoverer AT3 family of tires includes:
The Discoverer AT34S provides reliable performance for SUVs and pick-up trucks. Featuring Adaptive-Traction Technology™, the Discoverer AT34S is designed to grip the driving surface, whether rocky or smooth, in hot or cold weather conditions. The tire is constructed using an innovative silica-based tread compound and Cooper’s Secure-Grip™ five-rib, all-terrain pattern to provide off-road driving capability and excellent wet and dry traction. Its zigzag sipes improve vehicle stability while reducing stone retention, and uniquely shaped deep center grooves reduce hydroplaning. Severe weather rated, the Discoverer AT34S has patented saw tooth technology designed to trap snow in the tread to provide superior stopping distance on snowy surfaces. The Discoverer AT34S offers a best-in-class 65,000-mile warranty and is available in 37 sizes from 15- to 20-inch rim diameters.
Designed to haul heavy loads with less wear, the Discoverer AT3LT offers Durable-Tread Technology™ to prevent shredding and withstand the ongoing assault of driving on dirt and gravel. A new cut- and chip-resistant compound significantly improves performance on sharp gravel and increases tread wear, and the shape of the tire has been engineered to balance pressure at the tire-to-road contact area, providing even on-road tread wear and superior handling. The Discoverer AT3LT features new Whisper Grooves™ to provide a sound barrier that reduces road noise as well as stone ejector ledges to easily discharge stone and gravel for enhanced durability. The tire carries a best-in-class 60,000-mile warranty and is available in 21 sizes from 16- to 18-inch rim diameters.
The Discoverer AT3XLT offers the features and durability found in the Discoverer AT3LT with the added aesthetics and capability provided by rugged traction shoulders. These large, interlocking biting edges are built into the tire’s shoulders to offer traction and grip, additional resistance to abrasion and punctures, and added visual appeal for proud truck owners. Capable of extreme hauling and off-roading, the Discoverer AT3XLT offers Durable-Tread Technology and a best-inclass 60,000-mile warranty. The tire is available in 29 sizes from 15- to 20-inch rim diameters.
“Launched this summer, the AT3 lineup targets three unique segments of consumers with tires developed to meet their specific needs. All three products are reliable tires designed to take on tough driving conditions and excel in performance,” said Scott Jamieson, director of product management. “Dealers and distributors have been very excited about this product. We are beginning to see the consumer response and it is receiving great feedback.”
In addition to the Discoverer AT3 lineup, Cooper is also featuring two winter tires at SEMA – the Discoverer True North and Evolution Winter – designed to tackle the worst winter weather, from slushy highway commutes to deep snow. The Discoverer True North offers the performance and reliability, leading technology and premium features, while the Evolution Winter offers consumers the performance, handling and durability synonymous with Cooper at a mid-tier price point in the Cooper portfolio. The Evolution Winter also offers a tread design optimized for powering through deep snow and Cooper’s Snow-Groove technology, which channels snow into the tire tread for biting snow-on-snow grip. The tire offers the ability to be studded. The Evolution Winter is available in 48 sizes from 14- to 18-inch rim diameters for cars and crossover vehicles.
Both the Discoverer True North and Evolution Winter have earned Cooper’s Weather-Master certification.
