The Cooper Discoverer Winter tire has garnered attention in recent tests conducted by notable automobile organizations, presenting a mix of qualities that position it as a viable option for winter driving conditions. Autobild and automotorsport provide insights into the tire's performance under varying conditions, highlighting strengths and pointing out areas for improvement.

From Autobild's perspective, the Cooper Discoverer Winter emerges as a cost-effective choice in the brand tire category. It showcases an overall balanced performance profile with particular strengths in snow capabilities and dry handling. Its performance on dry surfaces is commendable, with stable handling characteristics and short braking distances being notable highlights. However, it seems to fall short in terms of comfort, which is deemed average.

Automotorsport adds to the conversation by outlining the tire's decent braking and traction on snow, further acknowledging its significantly quiet nature and reasonable comfort levels, which slightly contrasts with Autobild's findings on comfort. Yet, the tire does not consistently impress across all winter conditions. While it maintains respectable traction and braking grip, it exhibits a surprisingly low lateral grip on snow. Additionally, its performance on wet surfaces is marked by a higher risk of oversteer and an overall insecurity in dry curves, accompanied by a high rolling resistance. The tire is also critiqued for its lengthy braking distances on wet surfaces, which was seen as a considerable drawback.

Despite these detailed evaluations, the tire's performance characteristics suggest a blend of strengths and weaknesses. Its advantageous pricing and convincing snow performance make it an appealing choice for drivers facing winter conditions. However, its performance on wet surfaces and in specific handling scenarios raises concerns, alongside a noted inconsistency in comfort and energy efficiency as indicated by its high rolling resistance.

In summary, the Cooper Discoverer Winter tire demonstrates a competitive edge in snow and dry handling but exhibits vulnerabilities in wet conditions and energy efficiency. Potential buyers might weigh its cost-benefit ratio favorably, given its strong snow capabilities. Yet, its identified shortcomings in wet performance and comfort could influence consumer choice, especially for those prioritizing all-around performance and efficiency in a winter tire.


Cooper Discoverer Winter is made in 37 sizes, starting from 215/65 R16 up to 295/35 R21.

Ranked #6 of 8
The Cooper Discoverer Winter tire secured a 6th place finish among 8 challengers. It was given a final rating of 'Sufficient', reflecting a mixed performance. The tire was commended for its decent braking and traction on snow, in addition to being very quiet and fairly comfortable. However, it also faced criticism for its unexpectedly low lateral grip on snow. Despite respectable traction and braking grip, the tire exhibited understeer risks in wet conditions and less secure handling in dry corners, coupled with a high rolling resistance. The longer braking distances on wet surfaces further contributed to its drawbacks. Notably, the tire excelled in aquaplaning resistance in lateral tests and was also recognized for its low exterior noise, demonstrating strengths in specific areas despite its overall mixed review.
