The Cooper Weather-Master WSC tire is a studdable winter tire with the RMA Severe Weather Winter Snowflake designation for great snow traction and ice grip. This designation molded into the sidewall of every Cooper Weather-Master WSC tire and is your assurance that it meets the highest industry standards for traction and grip. It is made with a directional design that is ideally suited for the toughest winter conditions. With a heavily siped center rib and swept back grooves, there are plenty of biting edges for snow and ice traction. High-silica, low modulus tread compounds add better ice, slush and wet grip even in extreme, cold temperatures. These tires are a good option for someone that still enjoys spirited driving in the winter on dry cold roads, but wants the assurance of mobility during winter storms and even dangerous snow and ice road conditions.
