Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has a new tire line for sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and light-duty pickups as well as medium-to-heavy duty trucks: the Discoverer AT3.

The line consists of three all-season all-terrain tires. Cooper is introducing the Discoverer AT3 line at The Tire Cologne international trade show May 29-June 1. The new line will be available to consumers this summer in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

A description of each tire follows.

Discoverer AT3 4S

Cooper says the Discoverer AT3 4S provides reliable performance for SUVs and light duty pickup trucks. Featuring Adaptive-Traction Technology, the Discoverer AT3 4S is designed to grip the driving surface, whether rocky or smooth, in hot or cold weather conditions. The tire is constructed using an innovative silica-based tread compound and Cooper’s Sure-Grip five-rib, all-terrain pattern to provide off-road driving capability and excellent wet and dry traction. Its zigzag sipes improve vehicle stability while reducing stone retention, and uniquely shaped deep center grooves reduce hydroplaning. Severe weather rated, the Discoverer AT3 4S has patented saw tooth technology designed to trap snow in the tread to provide superior stopping distance on snowy surfaces. The AT3 4S has a 65,000-mile warranty and is available in 37 sizes from 15- to 20-inch rim diameters.

Discoverer AT3 LT

Designed to haul heavy loads with improved tread wear resistance, the Discoverer AT3 LT offers Durable-Tread Technology to prevent shredding and withstand the ongoing assault of driving on dirt and gravel. A new cut- and chip-resistant compound significantly improves performance on rough terrain and increases tread wear, and the shape of the tire has been engineered to provide even wear and superior handling. The Discoverer AT3 LT features Cooper’s new Whisper Grooves to provide a sound barrier that reduces road noise as well as stone ejector ledges to easily discharge stone and gravel for enhanced durability. The tire carries a 60,000-mile warranty and is available in 21 sizes from 16- to 18-inch rim diameters.

Discoverer AT3 XLT

Cooper says the new Discoverer AT3 XLT offers the features and durability found in the Discoverer AT3 LT with the added capability and aesthetics provided by rugged traction shoulders. These large, interlocking biting edges are built into the tire’s shoulders to offer traction and grip, additional resistance to abrasion and punctures, and added visual appeal for proud truck owners. Capable of extreme hauling and off-roading, the Discoverer AT3 LT offers Durable-Tread Technology and a 60,000-mile warranty. The tire is available in 29 sizes from 15- to 20-inch rim diameters.

“The highly anticipated replacement for our award-winning Discoverer A/T3, this new Discoverer AT3 line was created for three segments of consumers who want tires that offer comfortable highway driving with durability to go beyond the pavement,” says Scott Jamieson, director of product management. .

“The Discoverer AT3 4S is designed for workday commutes and weekend adventure, while the Discoverer AT3 LT is for medium-to-heavy duty work pickups and the Discoverer AT3 XLT complements customized trucks with superior visual appeal while offering off-road capability. These are three reliable tires designed to take on tough driving conditions and excel in performance.”

    I just put a set of the Cooper Discoverer AT3 LT on my truck it's a 3/4 ton 2500 HD. I've had them on for 2 days and can't stand them , there's a lot of soft in the sidewall that feels like a truck is pulling and swaying all the time, and this is without my camper or four wheeler on the truck , just the truck empty . My question is will the discoverer XLT perform better I'm going to have these tires removed as the performance is no good.

Article TPMS on Commercial Tires Will be Standard by 2022

In this month’s column I want to talk about the rising success and relevance of the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) throughout Europe. TPMS is probably not high on the list of priorities for drivers, but having been installed in all new cars for a number of years now over here, the system is definitely proving to be a vital piece of equipment that aids driving safety. (In the U.S., tire pressure monitoring systems have been standard on all light vehicles since the 2008 model year.)
