FINDLAY, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cooper Tire announced today that its Cooper Zeon LTZ Pro™ tire in size 285/60R18 has been selected as original equipment (OE) on the HSV Colorado SportsCat pickup truck. The HSV-designed Colorado SportsCat is assembled at the company’s Melbourne, Australia facility and will be sold throughout Australia beginning in early 2018.
“Cooper is excited to collaborate with HSV to provide this high-performing tire to its customers,” said Heather Mosier, OE Tire Development Manager for Cooper. “Like the Colorado SportsCat, the Cooper Zeon LTZ Pro tire is both rugged and refined. It’s thoughtfully designed with the capability to perform well in off-road adventure while being quiet and comfortable for a superior highway ride. In addition, the Cooper Zeon LTZ Pro offers a stylish sport tire look that complements the trendy Colorado SportsCat with an optimized tread pattern for a balanced ride.”
“Given the positioning of the product, we wanted a tire that could help us set a new standard for on-road driving performance and comfort while enhancing the vehicle’s off-road capabilities. We’re confident the Cooper Zeon LTZ Pro delivers on both counts,” said HSV’s Engineering Director Joel Stoddart.
