Evolution H/T From Cooper Targets CUVs, SUVs, and Pickups

M-Cooper-Evolution-HT-1-1.jpg

As the market for CUVs, SUVs and pickups continues to expand, Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. is updating its product lineup with the new Evolution H/T all season highway tire. It replaces the Discoverer H/T.

Cooper says the Evolution H/T competes at a mid-range price point, and offers grip, stability and comfort. It features updated technology compared to the Discoverer H/T and covers 28 tire sizes for the CUV, SUV and light duty pickup truck market.
Cooper says the Evolution H/T include StabilEdge technology for enhanced handling and dry tracking stability, and 3D Micro-Gauge siping to maintain wet traction and superior handling. The tire also includes a silica tread compound and tread profile that provide even wear and long tread life. The new tire carries a 60,000 mile warranty.

“The market for SUVs, CUVs and pickups continues to expand rapidly,” says Scott Jamieson, director of product management for North America. “Being responsive to what is happening in the market is a commitment we take seriously at Cooper to help our dealers grow their businesses and help us succeed along with them. This commitment calls for Cooper to adapt our product offerings and evolve our tire lines and size ranges on an ongoing basis.

“The new Cooper Evolution H/T is a great example of offering a tire that responds to the needs of a growing market, while also providing a product with advanced technology and great performance at a price point that hits a sweet spot in that market. We’re excited about this tire and what it will bring to our dealers in terms of a high quality, affordable new option for their SUV, CUV and pickup truck customers.”

To support the introduction of the Evolution H/T, Cooper has provided dealers with a launch kit, and soon will host a customer webinar to answer product questions in realtime. Later this month, Cooper also will provide e-training for dealers on the tire’s features and benefits.

Bridgestone Adds 7 Run-Flat Sizes

M-Bridgestone-Driveguard-add-sizes-1Bridgestone Americas Inc. has expanded its DriveGuard run-flat tire line with seven new sizes engineered to fit some of the most popular family vehicles on the road today — minivans, crossover vehicles and sports utility vehicles.

“We introduced the DriveGuard tire line in 2014 for coupes, sedans and wagons,” says Philip Dobbs, chief marketing officer for Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC. “Since then, we heard customers resoundingly say that they wanted that same peace of mind when behind the wheel of their family vehicles – minivans, crossovers and small SUVs. We listened, and we’re excited to make this innovative technology available to more drivers and more vehicles.”
Featuring specially designed run-flat technology, Bridgestone says DriveGuard tires give drivers the ability to continue driving up to 50 miles at up to 50 mph to safety on a flat tire.

With the expanded size offering, the DriveGuard tire line from Bridgestone now fits more than 80% of minivans and 43% of crossovers and small SUVs – the fastest growing vehicle segment. The additional DriveGuard tire sizes arrive in stores May 1, 2016, in the U.S. and Canada.

Designed to deliver a quiet, comfortable ride and provide all season traction, DriveGuard tires come with a 50,000 to 60,000 mile treadwear warranty. DriveGuard tires are available in 43 sizes, 15 to 19 rim diameters.

Bridgestone commissioned a survey conducted online by Harris Poll in April 2016 among 2,109 U.S. adults. Results indicated 73% of drivers on the road today have experienced a flat tire, and 90% agree getting a flat tire would disrupt their day. The survey also revealed that nearly three quarters of drivers (72%) would be willing to pay more for tires that would allow them to continue driving up to 50 miles at up to 50 mph on a flat.

While the survey shows more than half of drivers (57%) claim they know how to change a flat tire, nearly three in five (58%) drivers have called someone for help. Only 34% of women say they know how to change a flat tire, compared to 82% of men who say the same. The majority of Americans (68%) indicated changing a tire on the side of a busy road is the biggest safety hazard of a flat tire.

The Michelin LTX is available in 47 sizes, ranging from 16-inch to 22-inch wheel diameter.

Cooper Tire Adds 30 Sizes to Discoverer SRX Line

Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has added 30 sizes to the Discoverer SRX line for SUVs and CUVs. The company launched the Discoverer SRX line in six sizes in 2014.

Cooper says it is adding sizes in light of a survey of automotive trends and purchasing habits survey of more than 500 American consumers confirming the popularity of sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and cross-over utility vehicles (CUVs) even in an era of fuel economy.

The survey, which was commissioned by Cooper, showed 67% of households driving an SUV or CUV, a result topped only by sedans in the survey. The study also found that in households with children, SUVs and CUVs are the number one vehicle of choice, with 52% preferring to drive those vehicles.

“In addition to the valuable input of consumers, we also continuously evaluate industry trends to ensure that we are providing product solutions that meet the needs of consumers and deliver exceptional value in today’s highly competitive marketplace,” says Jessica Egerton, Cooper’s director of brand development.

“For example, data from IHS Automotive, a leading market intelligence firm, supports the trend that CUVs continue to rise in popularity, noting that unit volume sales for this vehicle type have grown by more than 150% over the past five years. This additional validation supports the increasing need for a strong assortment of great-performing tires for this category.”

Cooper says the Discoverer SRX features new silica-based tread compound, combined with patented Stabiledge technology and 3D Micro-Gauge siping, which deliver more road surface grip for increased traction in various weather conditions.

In addition, the Discoverer SRX also features Cooper’s innovative Wear Square, an exclusive visual indicator on the tire that allows drivers to quickly and easily assess the remaining tread life. Built into the tread design, this innovation features the outline of a square located at six points of reference around the inside and outside of the tire tread.

As the tire wears, the Wear Square transitions among five stages, beginning with a full square on new tires and transforming into an exclamation mark when the tread reaches 2/32s of an inch, indicating it is time to replace the tire. The Wear Square can also signal uneven tire wear and possible wheel alignment issues.

The Discoverer SRX offers a 65,000-mile treadwear protection warranty and a 45-day road test guarantee.
