The Weathermaster WSC SUV 4×4 studdable Alpine winter tire from Cooper Tire Europe is now available in an additional 25 new sizes with fitments ranging from 16 to 20in rims. The new size range covers all of the most popular 4x4s and SUVs including Land Rover Discovery 4, Land Rover Freelander, most Range Rover models, VW Tiguan, Audi Q3 and Q5, Nissan Qashqai, Mazda CX-5 and Honda CR-V.
This studded offering features a high-silica polymer, low-modulus tread compound, which is designed to provide high levels of grip on icy, slushy and wet surfaces.
Cooper has also enhanced its Alpine passenger car tire range with the introduction of the WM-SA2+, which features the latest compound technology developed at Cooper Tire’s Wiltshire, UK-based European Technical Centre. The WM-SA2+ benefits from Cooper’s tapered alternating groove technology and forward-facing shoulder grooves, which greatly enhance braking ability, and its backward-facing center groove improves traction. It also features Cooper’s latest high-silica tread compound, which delivers improved snow, slush and wet traction.
Elsewhere, Cooper is expanding its presence in China by teaming with tire dealers on a new retail concept for Cooper-branded tire sales and service superstores. Cooper Superfeel Centers will offer an expansive array of tires for passenger cars, SUVs and other vehicle types in an enhanced shopping environment, as well as other tire-related services including alignment, balancing and tire repair.
