Cooper Tire Europe has extended its all-season line of all-terrain SUV tires with the new model Cooper Discoverer A/T3 Sport 2. According to the manufacturer, the new model is characterized but stable performance on paved roads, as well as in light off-road conditions. It bears the 3PMSF icon and the M+S sign that confirms that these tires are safe to use in harsh winter conditions and on slippery roads.
In the company’s model range, the new tire 2020 will soon replace the Cooper Discoverer A/T3 Sport, which has been available on the European markets since 2016. The second-generation tire inherited the original tread pattern, while the main changes were made to the tread compound — due to the renewal of its composition and new mixing technology, the engineers were able not only to increase wet traction by 3%, but also boost resistance to puncture and tear, which is extremely important when driving in off-road conditions.
Also, the company addressed the issue of strengthening the Cooper Discoverer A/T3 Sport 2. Now they are made from the new EPDM compound, which protects against ozone and ultraviolet radiation.
Alongside the new A/T3 Sport 2 model, for efficient all-year-round use, Cooper Tire also offers since 2019 the Discoverer All-Season tires, which achieved the «B» class for braking performance on wet pavement. The technology of mixing silica and resins, used in the production of these tires, guarantees that the tires will maintain dependable traction in a wide range of temperatures, while the improved construction ensures uniform tread wear and long tread life.
In addition, in the beginning of 2020 it became known that this American tire maker is going supply the European market the real «hard stuff» presented by the Cooper Discoverer AT3 LT and Cooper Discoverer AT3 XLT models.
