Cooper Tire has announced that its Cooper Discoverer AT3 LT tyre in size LT275/70R17 has been selected as original equipment (OE) on the new Nissan Navara N-TREK Warrior utility vehicle. The tyre is distributed through Exclusive Tyres of Australia.
Nissan worked with Australian automotive engineering experts, Premcar, to develop and re-engineer the vehicle at Premcar’s Epping facility in Victoria, raising the suspension, incorporating unique body work, a specialised interior and a premium Cooper all-terrain tyre package.
“To complement the suspension lift and 17-inch wheels, the Cooper Discoverer AT3 LT was the obvious choice for the project,” said Colin Skead, Chief Operating Officer, Exclusive Tyre Distributors. “With a history of being tested in the Australian outback for more than 25 years, Cooper’s light truck tyre range has a reputation as the tyre of choice for adventurers and off-road enthusiasts from Byron Bay to Broome and everywhere in between.”
“Cooper is excited to have our tyre selected for this fitment,” said Glenn Arbaugh, Executive Director, Global OE Strategy & Business for Cooper Tire. “The tyre’s robust light truck construction and superior on and off-road stability is a perfect match with Nissan’s new ride and suspension package. This fitment is in line with Cooper’s commitment to the on/off road segment globally and meeting consumer needs in this growing category.”
