Cooper Tire is bringing to the European market a new Evolution Van All Season commercial model that features a 3PMSF (three-peak mountain snowflake) sign, confirming its effectiveness in winter conditions.
According to the tire maker, «standout features of the Cooper Evolution Van All Season include a high-tech tread pattern design, which generates consistent grip and predictable cornering while producing an even footprint, together with tread voids which have been optimized for strong wet and snow performance, supported by high sipe and block edge lengths and zigzag grooves.»
Cooper’s European line of commercial tires already includes summer and winter models — Cooper Evolution Van and WM-Van respectively — i.e. now the company can offer tires of this category for all market segments. In the near future, the company is also planning to launch the Avon AS12 light-truck all-season tire.
«With the Cooper Evolution Van All Season, we can give van drivers year-round performance in one set of tires — said Gavin Edwards, General Manager, European Technical Center, Cooper Tire Europe — We look forward to seeing the tire out on the road, alongside our existing summer and winter van products.»
Initially, the Cooper Evolution Van All Season will be available in five sizes with a fitting diameter of 15 and 16 inches, such as 215/70R15C, 205/65R16C, and 235/65R16C; towards the end of the year the line will be extended by another five sizes.
