Cooper Evolution H/T Tire Review & Rating
Introduced in April 2017, the Cooper Evolution H/T is the company’s latest pickup, SUV and crossover all-season tire. The Evolution HT will be replacing the older Discoverer H/T that has been around for several years.
An all-season tread compound and unique tread pattern is matched up with Cooper’s StabilEdge technology that delivers increased traction and handling on dry or wet road surfaces. This new technology further enhances cornering grip and stability while providing for more even tread wear.
Cooper has added 3D Micro-Gauge sipes around the tread to go with the tires’ wider circumferential grooves. The result is increased traction on wet pavement and a reduced likelihood of hydroplaning in heavy rainstorms. The sipes further improve grip on snow covered streets, but since this model has only recently been introduced, we can’t speak to winter performance yet.
The Evolution HT is currently available in a range of 16-20 inch sizes, and with T or H-speed ratings. A 60K mile tread warranty is included on all sizes.
- Dry and wet traction is among better tires in this class
- Smooth comfortable ride
- Cornering stability
- Too soon to know about winter traction (We will update in future)
The new Cooper Evolution H/T continues in their line of good quality all-season tires. While the original H/T was a good model itself, this newer version manages to up the performance considerably.
Traction on dry or wet pavement is very good. The steering is precise and the ride is smoother and more comfortable than expected. While perhaps not as comfortable as a Michelin Premier LTX, it remains better than average. In addition, treadlife has shown to be good at this early stage. We can’t speak to winter performance, but being an all-season tire you pretty much know what to expect.
Overall, Cooper has engineered a quality all-season tire that delivers the kind of performance you look for in a new tire, with a fair price that is designed to fit most any budget.
