Cooper Discoverer SRX Tire Review & Rating

The Cooper Discoverer SRX is the newest addition to the company’s SUV and crossover highway all-season class. Built as the replacement for the older CTS, this new model utilizes Cooper’s latest tire technology to provide dependable year-round traction with a comfortable ride and longer treadlife.

Cooper uses a next generation tread compound that contains higher amounts of silica for added traction on dry and wet pavement. With the addition of 3-D micro-gauge sipes, grip is further increased on wet roads and in light snow. It also helps give this tire excellent brake performance in both dry and wet conditions.

StabilEdge technology delivers more precise steering response by stabilizing the tread surface during cornering and on uneven pavement. Handling is also enhanced through an optimized tread pattern that makes this tire more responsive.

The addition of Cooper’s Wear Square technology on the SRX, which is the same as what you’ll find on the popular CS5 Touring models, allows you to visually see at a glance how the tire is wearing. It also lets you see any possible alignment issues that can negatively affect treadwear.

Cooper backs the Discoverer SRX with a 65,000 mile tread warranty and has sizes available ranging from 16-22 inches.

  • Traction/braking on deep snow and ice  

Overall Thoughts

Cooper has placed a lot of their recent tire technology taken from the CS5 and put it into the new SRX for SUV and crossover drivers, and it’s a formula that works well. This is a solid offering that has many strengths, including one of the more comfortable rides we’ve found. As much as we like the ride comfort on other models such as the Michelin Premier LTX and Bridgestone Alenza Plus, the new SRX is not far behind on most road surfaces.

Traction and handling on dry and wet pavement is very good, and braking performance is among the best in class. About the only area where you might argue that this tire does not excel in would be deep snow and ice braking, but even then it will not be a major problem unless you live in an area that constantly receives heavy snow and ice. If you need a tire to handle severe winter weather then you already know you need a dedicated winter tire.

The Wear Square technology makes it easy for any driver to judge tread wear, and when it comes to the tread life on the SRX, it’s looking to be excellent as well. Based on initial tests from other tire owners and organizations like Consumer Reports, we are not alone in our assessment.

Overall, for a crossover/SUV highway all-season touring tire, this new Cooper SRX is among the better models available today. We highly recommend it.

  1. Just purchased the cooper SRX on my 15 Jeep Grand Cherokee, didn’t notice the loud road noise but on new concrete expressways it is all over the place very unpredictable going to return the tires,the wife will not drive the Jeep until they are replaced… not sure what to replace them with.

  2. I have had 2 sets of the Cooper Discoverer SRX on my 2006 Jeep Liberty. Dry and wet traction are great and braking on wet roads is excellent on my vehicle. I would rate road noise and winter driving as good (very good on ice but only OK in snow). Overall these are the best tires I’ve had on a Jeep for mostly highway driving. With 60K+ from each set I’m going to stick with them

  3. Purchased as replacement for worn OEM Bridgestone A/T on my 2018 GMC Sierra which uses the 285/45 22″ size. Immediately I heard tire hum, a sound that actually can be heard at low speed and grows in resonance at highway speeds. It has a harsh ride on slight road imperfections but surprisingly felt normal on big impacts. It does have great dry traction, and steering is sharp. Almost too sharp as it changed the driving dynamic of my truck. The slightest input now makes my truck change direction. Whereas the OEM Bridgestone were neutral in steering, cornering input. My lane assist is activated far more often with these tires than the OEM and are a bit of a nuisance. I feel road surface imperfections in the steering wheel and never did with even the worn OEM. I loved the price, the look, the dry traction and purchased because of the positive reviews. But I will not recommend these at least in the 22 inch size my truck requires. I now question the overly positive reviews.

    1. We have the 265 70 17 size on gmc yukon ours are actually very quiet very nice ride. But I would agree with you on the steering they seem to make the steering too quick

  4. These tires have good traction on dry pavement but are not for winter use for snow, ice or especially for cold climate. My set all leak severely in extreme cold creating an unsafe driving environment and potential for tire damage or accidents. Cooper makes good tires, these have not been of the same quality for me.
