FINDLAY, Ohio (Business Wire) -- Cooper Tire is expanding its proven Discoverer line of premium products with a new addition – the Discoverer HT3. Available now at dealers nationwide, the Discoverer HT3 is specially engineered for premium commercial-grade performance and highway traction in all seasons and intelligently designed to resist abnormal wear, making it one of the most dependable tires for business owners.

“Cooper is excited to carry on the strong Discoverer heritage by introducing a dedicated light truck commercial tire,” said Scott Jamieson, Cooper Tire's director of product management. “The Discoverer HT3 satisfies the needs of hard-working business owners and provides a smart tire option covering approximately 96 percent of the most popular light truck highway market sizes.”

The Cooper Discoverer HT3 is an exceptional commercial-grade product featuring advanced technology, including silica infused tread compound and full depth 3D micro-gauge siping to enhance highway performance in all seasons. In addition, the Discoverer HT3 boasts a continuous shoulder rib providing superior resistance to irregular wear and a quieter ride. The durable HT3 offers the critical features and benefits needed to perform in harsh urban highway conditions.

The Discoverer HT3 is available in R and S speed ratings and is available in 17 sizes ranging from 15- to 18-inch rim diameters. It is designed for highway and commercial driving for today's light trucks and small fleet delivery vehicles, including Sprinter, Ford E-Series, Ram Cargo, Chevy Express and Nissan NV Cargo vans, as well as three-quarter one-ton pickup trucks.

Cooper Tire boasts nearly 100 years of experience crafting premium products for all of life's road trips.
