FINDLAY, Ohio — Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. is upgrading its winter tire lineup with the Cooper Discoverer Snow Claw, a pickup truck/SUV tire built for extreme winter conditions that will complement the Discoverer M+S in the tire maker's product lineup.
This addition to the Discoverer line features Cooper's patented "Snow Groove" technology, which Cooper said traps snow in the grooves of the tire for greater traction, handling and stopping power.
The Snow Claw will be one of three winter options Cooper has for light truck/SUV owners. The others are the Discoverer True North and Discoverer Evolution Winter, which are designed for cars and smaller SUVs.
The Snow Claw also is designed to stay supple even in extreme cold and is engineered to allow for the addition of tire studs to help provide extreme grip and traction.
Designed and built for North American winters, the Discoverer Snow Claw is severe weather rated for winter and snow performance, holding the Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMSF) designation, Cooper said.
