Cooper Tire’s new Discoverer AT34S, an all-weather, all-terrain tyre for pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles, has been named a New Product Award winner in the tyre and related product category at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas.
Recognising outstanding achievements in the development of products being introduced to the automotive specialty equipment market, the new product awards competition considered nearly 3,000 products in 16 categories.
“The Discoverer AT34S provides consistently powerful performance whether commuting on the highway or going off-road for weekend adventure,” said Scott Jamieson, Cooper’s Director of Product Management. “We are honoured to be recognised by SEMA for this outstanding new product.”
Part of the Discoverer AT3 family of tyres, the Discoverer AT34S features Adaptive-Traction Technology to grip the driving surface, whether rocky or smooth, in hot or cold weather conditions. The tyre is constructed using a silica-based tread compound and Cooper’s Secure-Grip five-rib, all-terrain pattern to provide off-road driving capability and excellent wet and dry traction. Its zigzag sipes improve vehicle stability while reducing stone retention, and uniquely shaped deep centre grooves reduce hydroplaning.
Severe weather rated, the Discoverer AT34S has patented saw tooth technology designed to trap snow in the tread to provide superior stopping distance on snowy surfaces. The Discoverer AT34S is available in 37 sizes from 15- to 20-inch rim diameters.
