When installing a new set of tires or only replacing a flat, consider Cooper Tires as a preferred brand for your Alexandria, VA car, truck, or SUV. With over 100 years in the tire industry, Cooper is one of the preferred brands we carry here at Wiygul Automotive Clinics.
The company was founded in 1914 as a producer of tire cement, patches, and repair kits by brothers-in-law John F. Schaefer and Claude E. Hart. In 1915, they purchased The Giant Tire & Rubber Company of Akron, Ohio, which specialized in rebuilding tires, and moved the operation to Findlay, Ohio two years later.
In 1920, Ira J. Cooper became a director for the company and greatly helped increase its size for the next 20 years through expanding sales and developing new markets. He also helped redirect those efforts to wartime production after the U.S. entered WWII in 1941. Five years later, the company adopted his name to become The Cooper Tire & Rubber Company.
Wiygul Automotive maintains an extensive number of products from Cooper Tires for our Alexandria, VA customers. Among the lines we offer are the Discoverer and Grand Touring models.
The Cooper Discoverer A/TW tire is a favorite all-season, all-terrain model designed for light, passenger trucks and SUVs. Features of the A/TW include Chevron-design, self-cleaning grooves with full length, full depth micro-gauge™ corrugated sipes. It is a Snowgroove 2.0, with twin tire bars and is both Severe Weather and M+S Rated. Each A/TW comes with the Cooper Tire Standard Limited Warranty and their 50,000 Mile Treadwear Protection.
Benefits of the Cooper A/TW features include increased aggressive offsets for improved snow and loose surface traction. They also maintain a premium look while increasing performance on all terrain. The Snowgroove 2.0 design increases surface area contact, forcing snow through the tire grooves for increased tread life and a much quieter ride for the driver and passengers.
The CS5 Grand Touring model is an all-season tire perfect for passenger cars and minivans. Features of the CS5 include four wide circumferential grooves, their registered Wear Square® visual wear indicator along with coupled tread elements, and 3D Micro-Gauge™ siping. It is M+S Rated and carries the T-Rated, 80,000 mile/130,000 km Treadwear Limited Protection Warranty. Each CS5 also comes with a free 45-day road test.
Benefits of the Cooper CS5 tire features include increased hydroplane resistance and full depth and variable sipe density to help maintain stability and traction on wet roads. The Wear Square® allows you to quickly see the approximate tread life remaining on your tires and the coupled tread elements support tread block stability for precise handling.
