Cooper Discoverer SRX review

After about 500 miles, the Cooper Discoverer SRX's have exceeded my expectations. They are VERY smooth, quiet at all speeds, and handle great. In comparison to the Cooper AT3's, the ride is so much more refined, the Overland now feels like a luxury vehicle, with no hum or noise apparent at any speed and one of the first things I noticed is how much better it coasts after letting of the accelerator. Both city and highway mileage has improved by nearly 2, and at 70 mph the average is now over 22 mpg. DiscountTireDirect.com has a sale til next week on ebay, $100 off a set of 4, free shipping (arrived next day) and I got 4 delivered for $486, plus there is a $70 rebate from Cooper. Heckuva deal 70,000 mile tire and outstanding grip in the rain.

Re: Cooper Discoverer SRX review

Update, taken 2 600 hundred mile road trips and am very pleased, as these tires are soooo quiet, plus they smooth out the same bumps which were quite noticable with the Cooper AT3's. It rides like a completely different vehicle, and road trips are much more enjoyable and relaxing. The testers reviews from the several magazines were right on, these tires rock, are great in the rain, and for the price are exceptional. Have to see how they do in snow now, which is coming maybe later this week !

Re: Cooper Discoverer SRX review

Bought these for my wife's explorer cause they have an even weirder size than the grand Cherokee, 255/55/20. Love them. Can't wait to see how they do in the snow as the stock Hankooks on the explorer were ice skates.

Re: Cooper Discoverer SRX review

Raining this morning, stomped on the go pedal from a stop, and zero wheelspin. The AT3's would break loose in same conditions before gaining traction. These really hookup in the wet with all those added sipes and silica. The steering feel is however not as tight as I would hope for, but they do hold on in the corners very well, and can feel if they are starting to break traction at the limit, so no surprises. Quietest and smoothest tire I've had so far, and best in the rain.

Re: Cooper Discoverer SRX review

First snowfall, with 6 inches so far and the SRX's are better than I expected. While not a winter tire, all the added sipes and silica really work well for traction, turning and stopping. I thought the AT3's were pretty good in snow, but these really are a lot better.

Re: Cooper Discoverer SRX review

Thanks for the update ... I am debating between the Cooper Discoverer SRX, Toyo Celsius and Michelin Defender LTX M/S and was curious how the Cooper did on snow.

Re: Cooper Discoverer SRX review

SRX's probably 85 percent as good in snow as a good dedicated winter tire. They grab without slipping from a stop, even with a heavy pedal, (QD II rocks, thanks Daimler !), also tried heavy braking several times in the snow/ice and came to a surprisingly quick stop. Traction control intervention when going around corners happens much less, and they regain control a lot quicker. Best snow performance by a wide margin than all previous sets Ive had mounted, including Cooper AT3. Firestone Destination AT, GoodYear Tripletread, and OEM stock GY's.
