Cooper Discoverer HTP Tire Review & Rating
The Cooper Discoverer HTP is developed for drivers looking for a highway touring tire that provides confident 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 enhanced 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, which is a strong point for this model.
Cooper has made driving on the HTP more quiet through a computer optimized tread pitch sequence. We’ve heard comments and reviews 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.
- Excellent dry/wet traction
- Winter handling is good for this model
- Ride is quiet and comfortable
- Long treadlife and a 65,000 mile warranty
- Would like to see just a little more high speed cornering stability
The Cooper HTP has not received the attention as some of their other SUV/truck tires, but this tire offers some very nice performance for drivers looking for a highway all-season tire. The ride you get on this tire is very smooth and comfortable. Handling on dry, wet or even light snow is dependable and sure.
While cornering capabilities are very good, more spirited drivers may find the sidewalls are a bit more soft than they like. That said, LT models deliver excellent stability when pulling heavy loads.
Overall, the HTP is a very good performer and one we can easily recommend. It carries a 65,000 mile tread guarantee, and the lower price makes it a good choice when compared to similar models from Michelin and Bridgestone among others.
