Views: 1419

If you’re in the market for a new set of all-terrains, you may have noticed that our COOPER AT3 range is available in three options – all of which are covered by our industry-leading TyreLife warranty:

 

 

So which AT3 product is right for you and your vehicle?

 

To help you decide, here’s a quick guide on each tyre’s features and preferred application…

 

COOPER AT3 4S: LIGHT-DUTY SUVs & PICK-UPS

The COOPER AT3 4S is an OE-replacement tyre for SUV and pick-up owners seeking a replacement tyre for their worn-out factory units.

 

As a P-Metric product, the COOPER AT3 4S features a passenger-carcass construction for improved ride comfort and fuel economy.

 

Much like any OE-specced tyre, the AT3 4S is not designed for heavy-duty applications, high payloads, and extensive off-road use.

 

Fit the COOPER AT3 4S if you…

  • Need to replace your worn out factory-fitted tyres with a similarly-specced product.
  • Want extra traction on a graded dirt road, grassy field or partially covered sand track.
  • Use your vehicle predominantly on long-tarred roads, with the occasional trip on mild off-road terrain.
  • Want a premium-quality tyre for improved safety, performance and longevity.
  • Value a tyre with a comprehensive warranty programme.

 

COOPER AT3 LT: MEDIUM TO HEAVY-DUTY 4X4s & PICK-UPS

As a ‘Light Truck’ tyre, the COOPER AT3 LT is an upgrade option for 4x4 owners and commercial users who want a stronger tyre than their factory-fitted units.

 

This added strength includes: Better puncture resistance, sidewall strength, and superior compound performance against cut and chip.

 

What’s more, due to the AT3 LTs heavy-duty carcass construction, the tyre is better suited to high payloads – boasting a load capacity that’s up to 60% more (per tyre) than many factory-fitted products.

 

A stiffer sidewall and heavy-duty construction greatly improves puncture resistance, heat reduction (generated from sidewall flexing), load-ability, and steering control.

 

Fit the COOPER AT3 LT if you…

  • Frequently drive off-road on gravel surfaces, rocks, sand, and in remote areas.
  • Drive a workhorse vehicle that’s heavily laden with equipment.
  • Regularly go camping with lots of gear, and/or a caravan, trailer, or boat in tow.
  • Are concerned about safety and want better puncture resistance on SA’s highways.

 

 

COOPER AT3 XLT: HEAVY-DUTY 4X4s

The COOPER AT3 XLT is similar to the AT3 LT in terms of carcass construction and compound quality.

 

However, the fundamental difference between the two products, is that the XLT features extra-rugged shoulder lugs for additional sidewall protection and traction on loose terrain.

 

What’s more, the XLT’s aggressive sidewall pattern makes it ideal for upmarket 4x4s and off-road enthusiasts who want a rugged-looking tyre, but without the ride-quality drawbacks commonly associated with mud-terrains.

 

Fit the COOPER AT3 XLT if you…

  • Want an aggressive looking tyre without affecting your vehicle’s ride quality.
  • Frequently drive off-road on gravel surfaces, rocks, sand, and in remote areas.
  • Drive a workhorse vehicle that’s heavily laden with equipment.
  • Regularly go camping with lots of gear, and/or a caravan, trailer, or boat in tow.
  • Are concerned about safety and want better puncture resistance on SA’s highways.
