Cooper Discoverer ATP Tire Review & Rating
Built to deliver a balance of aggressive off-road performance with smooth on-road drivability, the Discoverer ATP from Cooper Tires provides light sport truck and SUV drivers an all-terrain tire that features the latest in tire technology and performance.
A silica-enhanced tread compound combined with an aggressive 5-rib tread pattern and large lugs increase both on and off road traction and grip on all types of road surfaces. The outside shoulders are scalloped for added traction in sand, mud and snow.
When the terrain turns extreme, the linked tread blocks are designed to provide added stability to get you where you want to go. Serpentine sipes further increase handling and also prevent small stones from gathering in the tread grooves.
One thing you will notice when driving on the highway, or around town for that matter, is how quiet this model is. Road noise is reduced through Cooper’s multi-pitch tread block design, and this is an area we’ve heard many positive reviews come in from other drivers.
Inside the tire you’ll find twin steel belts with nylon reinforcement for added strength and durability. They also increase tread life, which Cooper stands behind with a 55,000 mile tread guarantee. The ATP is available in a variety of 16-20 inch sizes.
- Excellent off-road traction in sand, soft dirt, gravel, snow, mud and other terrain
- Steering response is impressive
- Tires are quiet on-road and provide a smooth comfortable ride
- Long treadlife and a 55,000 mile warranty
- Can be hard to find available
For the most part, it seems like the Cooper ATP tire flies under the radar so to speak. You hear so much more about other bigger name models. That’s somewhat unfortunate because more truck and 4×4 owners should hear about how well this tire performs.
This model is very similar to the Discoverer AT3, which won an award for best AT tire of 2011. Off-road traction is excellent on all types of terrain, whether it’s rocks, sand, mud, etc. It simply goes through anything.
Equally impressive is this tire’s on-road manners. It is a quiet tire for an all-terrain model. Traction on dry or wet pavement is very good, and grip on snow and ice is on par with the better tires in this class. Finally, the tread holds up well, and Cooper backs it with a 55K mile guarantee.
Overall, there’s several very good AT tires on the market today, from the BFG T/A KO2 to the Michelin AT2 among many others, but this Copper ATP takes a backseat to no one. It’s an excellent tire that ranks very high in this class.
