Based on their knowledge of the vagaries of winter weather, the engineers of Cooper Tire created a tire model that ensures confident driving even in the harshest of weather conditions. The new tire model for pickup trucks and SUVs, which got a name of Cooper Discoverer Snow Claw, was added to the winter lineup of Cooper Discoverer series, which hitherto was solely represented by the Cooper Discoverer Winter model.
Unlike the Discoverer Winter, designed for the mild European winters, the Discoverer Snow Claw tire model was designed and built by experts who know North American winters firsthand. The tire is severe-weather-rated for winter and snow performance, holding the Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMSF) designation — another key assurance for drivers.
According to the manufacturer, the Cooper Discoverer Snow Claw tires were rigorously snow-tested in four countries across three continents. The new model features patented Snow Groove technology, which traps snow in the grooves of the tire for greater traction, handling and stopping power.
To ensure maximum safety on slippery winter roads, the tire is also engineered to allow for the addition of tire studs to help provide extreme grip and traction. The tire is also designed to stay supple even in extreme cold, thanks to the freeze-resistant tread compound.
The Discoverer Snow Claw tire will be available for Cooper Tire customers to order beginning in April and available to consumers in October.
