Cooper Weathermaster Tyres
Fitted 4 new Cooper Weathermaster tyres 2k ago.
I went for the oversize 255 x55 x 20, but kept the spare as a Pirrelli Scorpion (same size) as they are a directional tyre.
Usually fit all terrians, first time with a real winter tyre.
Very quiet, no more noise than Scorpions and no impact on mpg.
Ride smoother and poss a tad quieter, which I put down to the larger side wall in this size.
No real off road yet, but in a couple of little tracks I have done no problems.
In wet weather have handled well and caused no issues.
Some snowy conditions back in early December saw no problems at all, but not really that testing.
However yesterday, out all day in the snow and was very impressed all round with the performance.
They just stuck and gripped in all the varying conditions including some drifting on 1:10 hills Did not use any of the off road modes and even when trying hard to provoke a spin or slip they just stuck and powered on through.
Even found the braking far superior to anything experienced with All-terrians in similar conditions, with plenty of feedback and grip.
The only thing I can really moan about is they do seem to throw an lot more mud and crap up the side of the car, otherwise feel monies well spent D4 HSE MY12 Marmais Teal: Gone. Missed a lot!
Freelander 2 SD HSE MY11 Silver:Thankfully gone.
D4 HSE MY11 Silver: Gone missed !
Range Rover Sport MY06 HSE Buck Blue: Gone missed!
Discovery D2 TD5 Facelift MY Red Gone Missed!
Discovery D2 TD5 Cobalt Blue: Gone Missed!
Discovery D1 Auto Oxford Blue Not missed at all!
Discovery D1 Avalon Blue First LR! missed!
Now driving a rather nice Black Van (joined Club Landmark)
I have them on one of my Discoveries and I think they work great in snow/ice and normal conditions and look good too which always helps.

This is the second winter on my WeatherMasters (Pirelli in summer) very pleased with them in all conditions and so far done about 8/9k and still showing just over 8mm left.
Any thoughts on their off-road ability for 2 weeks in the Pyrenees in June?Discovery 4 HSE 2010
