The Cooper Discoverer SRX is one of Coopers leading Sport Utility Vehicle, and Crossover Utility Vehicle, all season touring tires. Not only is the Cooper Discoverer SRX an all season tire it is also mud and snow rated, which means it is able to handle any road condition, be it dry, wet, mud, or snow. When the Discoverer SRX was in the works, Coopers engineers wanted to create a SUV and CUV tire that would give excellent all season performance, while also giving great treadwear, comfort, and a quiet ride. What they came up with was the SRX. By starting with what they wanted to see out of the tire, they were able to add the necessary compounds, and tread design to achieve their goal. The SRX has an optimized 5 rib tread pattern that evenly distributes the load across the contact patch of the tire, which helps with handling, responsiveness, and treadwear. To ensure you have a firm grip when driving, the tire comes with 3D micro gauge siping. The siping provides biting edges, which ensures easy and safe driving in snow, or wet roads. It also offers uniform construction, which means that you will always have a comfortable and quiet cabin. Coopers trademarked Stabiledge technology stabilizes the tread in any element, providing incredible steering response and precision.
