Like shoes, your tyres must suit the places you want to go. You wouldn’t wear hiking boots to work or business shoes to the beach. Here are the latest features your 4WD tyres should have:
Flex groove allows the tyre to flex - dampening the impact generated by inconsistent terrain. This gives you greater flexibility and a smoother ride.
Mud dimples and scoops create air pockets that prevent mud from sticking between the tread blocks. This gives you exceptional mud, dirt and rock traction.
Stone repelling technology built into the tread to resist damage by discharging stones to avoid drilling. This gives you extra resistance to cut and chip.
Cooper's deeper treads give you up to 30.3% more overall tread and 46.3% more tread in the shoulder area.
A tyre’s carcass is like a house’s foundation. You need a strong foundation for the construction that goes on top.
It’s the same with tyres. You might be surprised to learn that while tread is critical, it’s the carcass that accounts for up to 70% of a tyres performance.
What you can’t see under the tread is the foundation that the tread sits on.
For more adventurous off-roads, Armor-Tek3 is the answer as it gives you over 2.5 times more tear and impact damage resistance by reducing the rubber gaps by 50% to give you peace of mind when driving off-road Unique Armor-Tek3 technology features an additional third ply at an 8 degree angle (angle ply technology) which maximises carcass protection and lowers sidewall damage, giving you more stability, safety and better handling.
*Compared to standard 2-ply tyres
High tensile construction gives you maximum strength and more protection with a higher load capacity. High Tensile Cords give you 33% more strength than standard tensile cords.
Super Tensile Steel Belts give you 15% more strength than high tensile steel belts.
We all know the quality of plastics differs greatly - some are brittle while others are strong and flexible. It’s the same with the quality of the compound in tyres. Coupled silica is the latest generation in compounds.
Advanced silica compounds give you excellent wet traction and highway handling whilst lowering rolling resistance for more grip and fuel efficiency than other traditional tyres. Cooper Tires tread compound is uniquely-formulated with up to 4 times more silica than other premium leading brands.
Cooper Tires are still made to last.
That's why Cooper tyres are guaranteed to last for up to 80,000kms.
Cooper's Mileage Warranty is available nationally.
The Mileage Warranty varies from 50,000 to 80,000 kms, based on tyre size and tread pattern, and subject to your local conditions.
Remember to contact your local New Zealand dealer and ask about high mileage Cooper Tyres
