7 Reasons why you should choose Cooper 4x4 Tyres

Four Wheel Drive enthusiast and head of the New Zealand distribution of Cooper 4x4 tyres, Terry Smith, explains why Cooper Tires are “America’s Most Trusted 4X4 Tyre”. He summarises this into seven reasons that are important benefits for the 4WD tyre buyer.

Cooper Tires are Made to Last

Cooper Tires have two warranties for their tyres:-

1 - Unique Lifetime Manufacturer’s Warranty - New Zealand-wide warranty against manufacturing faults, for the lifeNZ-cooper-warranty-card.jpg of the tread or for 72 months. Adjusted on a pro-rata basis.

2 - Metro City Mileage Warranty -  For 35 years in the USA, 20 years in Australia and now in New Zealand, Cooper Tires were the first tyre company to provide 4WDrivers with a mileage warranty, 50 to 80,000 kms, depending on size and pattern. 

3 - Rural Mileage Warranty - Due to the popularity and success of Cooper Tires in Rural conditions we are now happy to offer Rural Cooper customers a mileage warranty. This warranty ranges from 50 to 60,000kms, depending on size and pattern

Cooper Tires have Deeper Treads Cooper-Tires-Have-Deeper-Treads.jpg

Up to 30.3% more overall tread than most original equipment brands and up to 46.3% deeper in the shoulder grooves compared to most original equipment brands. This is possible because of wider and stronger steel belts under the tread. That means more grip, more miles and more resistance to damage.

Cooper Tires Stand Up Straighter

Cooper tyres, by design, stand up straighter to deflect objects and have more grip in adverse conditions.

Most non-American brands of 4x4 tyres have a rounder or belly shape in the sidewalls. The disadvantage is that they are more easily damaged in off road conditions.

Cooper Tires have See-through Treads

Meaning the latest tread designs have open straight grooves for wet grip and self cleaning. Cooper tread designs are all the most current designs.


Cooper Tires have tread edges to suit the application

Both ‘round’ and ‘square’ edge treads feature in Cooper’s range of 4x4 tyres.

‘Round’ Edge Tread
Cooper’s range of highway tyres feature round edge treads to reduce tracking on rutted roads and give more even tread wear on the edge of the tyre.


‘Square’ Edge Tread
Cooper’s range of off road tyres feature square edge treads to bite in and gives better control when turning on dirt and gravel roads.

Cooper Tires are Aftermarket Innovators

In tyre manufacturing there are two types, original equipment manufacturers and aftermarket manufacturers. Cooper produce predominately for the aftermarket so they don’t compromise on quality or performance or meet a price or criteria of a vehicle manufacturer, which means you get more for your money.

Cooper Tires have High Quality Inner Linershalobutyl---inner-liner.jpg

The most important characteristic of a tyre is its ability to hold air. Cooper uses high quality inner liners (Halobutyl) combined with the proper liner thickness to give excellent air retention, where others vary the quality and thickness of the compound to reduce cost, sacrificing air retention properties and creating irregular and premature wear.
