Choosing the right 4x4 or Light Truck tyre.

The main difference between a tyre built with a Passenger construction and a tyre with Light Truck construction is the strength of the carcass.

Passenger construction tyres are being used more and more by vehicle manufacturers for road use as they offer a slightly higher level of ride comfort, with rounded shoulders that mean they are less likely to be upset by road irregularities. The downside of this is they can be more easily damaged if used off-road.

A Light Truck construction tyre has a much stronger carcass with more sidewall rubber, which means you get a tyre that can carry heavier loads better, is more resistant to damage (especially with its straighter sidewalls) and will last longer as it will generally have deeper tread than its passenger constructed counterpart.

Cooper Tyres are Made to Last

Cooper Tires have two warranties for their tyres:-
  1. Unique Lifetime Manufacturer’s Warranty - Australia-wide warranty against manufacturing faults, for the life of the tread or for 72 months. Adjusted on a pro-rata basis.
  2. Capital City Mileage Warranty. For 33 years in the USA and 18 years in Australia, Cooper Tires were the first tyre company to provide 4WDrivers with a mileage warranty, 50 to 90,000 kms, depending on size and pattern. Although regional cities don't provide this unique warranty, Cooper Tires will usually outlast most competitor brands, even when used in those difficult conditions beyond normal use when rapid wear can occur in any brand of tyre.
