This brand is particularly popular among pick up truck segment. One of my colleagues has this on his Ford F-150 & he says he will go back to BF Goodrich.

There have been some complaints of tread separation a while ago though in all fairness a number of brands have had issues in the past as well.

At the end of the day this is a middle of the road tire brand and is choice of customers who are price shopping against more established brands. I also must mention here that I have personally not used this brand.

Also the tires that will be sold in India will be sourced from their plant in China in all probability to keep the pricing competitive.

This is excellent news Karan, Thanks!

I have not owned, but, extensively used, Cooper Discoverers (size 235/85/16), which were imported here when it was still easy to do so (circa 2011).
The tyres are still going strong with very little wear, and have a lot of off-road and on road usage under their belt, on a Gurkha! These tyres complemented that vehicle very well, both in looks and performance, and were acceptably comfortable to drive on the road.

I thought they were available in India even before. I have seen Jeeps with these tyres for some years now.

Yes they were available earlier as imports before the ISI mark issue came up and Imports were stopped.

Hi.
Understand that Cooper tyres is a very good and proven brand. But my question is how is the performance in hot humid Indian conditions with a mix of good and bad roads.

I have used 225 mm tires on my 15 inch on my Hyundai Getz for 8 years. I felt they provided superior grip at high speeds, though the road noise was a tad higher. I clocked about 35 K on them.
