FINDLAY, Ohio (Nov. 2, 2004) — Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has unveiled the Cooper Discoverer STT for off-road enthusiasts.
The super traction tread (STT) tire was designed to meet the needs of pickup and sport-utility vehicle drivers who desire maximum off-road traction, the Findlay-based tire maker said.
The tire's tread design extends down the sidewall to enhance soft surface traction and provide additional clawing power, Cooper said. Each row of the tire's non-directional tread elements is siped for handling in wet conditions.
The tire will initially be available in 12 light truck sizes with another 14 scheduled for next year. The M+S rated tire is available in 16-, 17- and 18-inch rim diameters.
