Stronger Sidewalls - The new A/T3 has a higher cord strength in the carcass, going from 1500 denier to 2000 denier, making it 33% stronger. This means less damage and a higher load capacity.
Better Puncture Resistance - Now with super tensile steel belts, 15% stronger than "high tensile steel" belts which results in higher impact strength and puncture resistance.
Improved Wet and Dry Traction Handling- The chemically bonded silica tread compound provides improved wet and dry traction and handling on the highway, while also improving cut-n-chip resistance in harsher conditions.
NEW! Super Tensile Steel Belts - 15% stronger than "high tensile steel" which results in higher impact strength and puncture resistance.
NEW! Propriety Cut and Chip Resistant Tread Compound - Provides improved wet and dry traction and handling on the highway, while also improving cut-n-chip resistance in harsher rocky and gravel terrain.
The STT is now 25% even stronger - In the sidewalls and still 2.5 times MORE RESISTANT TO TEARINGThe Cooper STT boasts further advances in carcass construction. Cooper's new super tensile polyester body plies' strength to weight ratio means more strength while decreasing the weight of the tyre. That maintains a whopping 25% increase in carcass strength!
Cut-n-Chip resistant compound - Cooper has made the STT even more damage resistant with a specially developed tread compound which helps to resist the cutting, tearing and chunking commonly found with extended outback use.
Super traction tread - A super traction tread employs a combination of features including deep sidewall lugs, notched and scalloped shoulder lugs and a unique centre traction zone to create a bold, aggressive tyre. Sipes (tiny cuts in the tread blocks that squeeze out water from under the tyre) provide excellent wet bitumen grip for an aggressive traction tyre.
Mud dimples and scoops - Create air pockets to prevent mud sticking between the blocks. This gives you exceptional mud, dirt, rock and gravel traction.
Flex Groove Technology - Dampens the impact generated by inconsistent terrain. This gives you greater flexibility and an even smoother ride..
Advanced Silica Compounds - Formulated with the highest content of chemically-coupled silica for maximum wet traction.
Anti-Stone Retention - Raised rubber ribs and angled groove walls work together to eject stones and gravel from the tread. This gives you a reduced chance of stone retention, while improving grip.
Responsive Handling - Couplled tread blocks offer more responsive handling on-road with greater stability.
Improved Traction on soft surfaces - Shoulder lugs are alternately scalloped and offset for improved traction on soft surfaces such as mud and sand.
Dependable Traction in All-Weather - The use of duel "Z" shaped sipes on each tread lug help provide for long, dependable traction in all-weather conditions while balancing tread element stiffness for excellent tread wesr and handling.
Enhanced Steering Response - Selected zones between tread block elements are reinforced with raised, serrated "lug-Locks". This gives you enhanced steering response and traction. Raised design helps protect the tread against stone retention by deflecting foreign objects.
