The initial Discoverer A/T3 Sport line-up will include 21 sizes with 30 additional sizes being introduced later this year
Cooper Tire Europe has launched the Cooper Discoverer A/T3 Sport, an all-terrain 4×4 tyre. Designed specifically for the European market, the A/T3 Sport is available now in a range of sizes for light trucks and sport utility vehicles.
Manufactured in Europe, the Discoverer A/T3 Sport is a 60 per cent on-road and 40 per cent off-road tyre developed for optimum performance across varied terrain and in all conditions.
Introduced to replace the Discoverer A/T3, the Discoverer A/T3 Sport boasts a modified tread pattern to reduce road noise and improve handling. The initial line-up will include 21 sizes with 30 additional sizes being introduced later this year.
According to the company, the new A/T3 Sport retains the A/T3 benefits of reliable tread wear and superior all-season traction due to the zig-zag siping technology. In addition, lateral groove protectors are designed to reduce the chance of stone retention and dual draft angles on the tread element walls assist in cut and chip resistance.
Jeff Schumaker, vice president of european operations/managing director, Cooper Tire Europe, said: “We are proud to be manufacturing the latest generation of our all-terrain tyres here in Europe.It means we have the added benefit of improved supply for this product and we anticipate the A/T3 Sport being highly popular among our customers.
“The A/T3 has been extremely successful in terms of sales with the A/T3 Sport being built on the same proven all-terrain Discoverer technology as the A/T3, but with new enhancements.”
Moulds for all of Cooper’s current tyre ranges also utilise spring venting design for clean, premium appearance.
