Question about Cooper Tires

I was planning to replace the 235/65 R17 tires for the Cooper Discoverer.



Who has experience with tires, are they noisy?
Offroad and snow this tires would be great, according a German website.

Thanks to any of you who can provide me with some answers!

Thanks
Maurice.

I don't think they are noisy at all and I ran them last winter in the snow with no issues. I actually had them year round with no issues. They are currently sitting in my garage awaiting my new TDI to arrive so I can run them on that. I removed them from my 04 so I can get rid of it with different tires on it.

It was explained to me they are essentially the same tire as Nokians Apptiva AT tire since Cooper apparently makes those for Nokian. I was looking at the Nokians first since I previously had a set of WR's and really liked them. The Coopers were less money. You can run a 245/70/17 on your Treg if you want to gain a little more clearance over stock size. That is the size I was running and also noticed that size put the speedo pretty much dead on.

Question about Cooper Tires

I currently run them on my 06 V8. We use them here in Alaska without studs. They handle great and are not loud at all. I run them without studs here because I'm driving down to Arizona in January and will run them all year around, then drive back to Alaska. Very good tire and I just happened to get a steel of a deal.

Cooper ATR

I have now done about 10k KM with my Coopers and so far they seem to be a good replacement. There is certainly more road noise than the OEM Good Years but they are a pure town tyre.
In my view the noise is acceptable.

I had the same tyre on my Patrol, ok in the dry, not too much road noise, ok off road, but in my estimation the levels of wet grip where outright dangerous, so much so that I removed and replaced them after 10000k's.

My Coopers are way too loud. Yesterday while cruizing (80mph) I was getting looks from people. Sounds like I'm running in a big Bronco with nobbies, and these are supposed to be performance tires.

Cooper Discoverer:
Loud: +/-
Grip on wet road: -- (which means: no discoverer tire on my Treg!)

Please advise .... I need a tire with good snow traction....which one?


Thanks!
Maurice.

They are two different tires. Notice the difference in tread patterns, and the Nokian has more siping than the Cooper.
