In 1914, two brothers-in-law, John F. Schaefer, and Claude E. Hart founded the company to produce tire repair kits, patches, and cement. The next year, Schaefer and Hart purchased The Giant Tire & Rubber Company of Akron, Ohio, a specialist agency which rebuilt tires and moved the entire operation to Findlay, Ohio in 1917.
Three years later, Ira J. Cooper became a director with The Giant Tire & Rubber Company and helped increase growth for the next two decades through expansion of sales and new markets development for their products. Ira was instrumental in redirecting output for 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 proudly maintains an extensive inventory of Cooper Tires for our Fort Washington, MD clients. Among the product lines, we offer the LIFELINER and DISCOVERER models.
The Lifeliner GLS is an All-Season Touring tire perfect for passenger cars and minivans. Its features include four circumferential grooves, a notched center rib, and shoulder slotting. It is M+S Rated and comes with Cooper Tire’s standard limited warranty and carries the 65,000 mile/105,000 km Treadwear Protection (T-Rated).
Benefits of the GLS features allow it to effectively propel water away from the tire tread contact area which helps to provide an incredible level of all-weather traction and increases even tread wear to extend the life of the tire no matter the season.
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.
