FINDLAY, Ohio (Oct. 2, 2014) — Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has developed an all-terrain, four-season SUV and light truck tire, the Discoverer X/T4, specifically engineered for the Canadian market.
The tire, which is available in 23 SUV and light truck sizes — which come with 100,000- and 85,000-kilometer treadwear warranties, respectively. Cooper said the Discoverer X/T4 is designed to provide excellent on-road and off-road performance in all weather conditions. It will be distributed exclusively in Canada by Cooper Tire dealers.
The tire's aggressive five-rib, all-terrain tread pattern and silica tread compound work together to increase wet grip and winter traction capabilities without sacrificing tread wear, according to the Findlay-based tire maker. The tire achieved the “severe snow” rating as indicated by its three-peak mountain snowflake symbol.
