Cooper Discoverer HTP Tire Review & Rating

The Discoverer HTP from Cooper Tires is developed for drivers looking for a highway touring tire that provides dependable all-season traction and handling to go with a smooth and quiet ride. Designed for use on SUV's, crossovers and pickups, the HTP is built to deliver high performance whether the roads are dry, wet or snow covered.

An all-season silica enhanced tread compound combines with an asymmetrical tread pattern to provide traction and handling in a variety of road and weather conditions. R-Tech construction technology that Cooper utilizes further increases dry pavement grip and cornering.

On wet roads, a unique serpentine sipe design adds biting edges for enhaced grip. These sipes also increase the tire's stability for smoother handling on the highway. Circumferential grooves evacuate water from under the tread and reduce the risk of hydroplaning.

Cooper has made driving on the HTP more quieter through a computer optimized tread pitch sequence. We've heard comments from many drivers that state this tire is very quiet on the highway.

Inside the tire you will find twin steel belts that are reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon for added strength and durability. They also promote more even treadwear and a longer tread life, which Cooper backs up with a 65,000 tread guarantee. The HTP is available in a range of sizes from 16-20 inches.

Pros

  • Excellent dry/wet traction
  • Winter handling is good for this model
  • Ride is quiet and comfortable
  • Long treadlife and a 65,000 mile warranty

Cons

  • Would like to see just a little more high speed cornering

Overall Thoughts

The Cooper HTP has not received the attention as some of their other SUV/truck tires do, but this tire offers some very nice performance for drivers looking for a highway touring tire only. The ride you get on this tire is very smooth and comfortable. Handling on dry, wet or even light snow is excellent.

While cornering capabilities are very good, more spirited drivers may find the sidewalls are soft. Overall, we really like this tire. It carries a 65,000 mile tread guarantee, and the lower price makes it a good choice compared to similar models from Michelin and Bridgestone among others.
