American made Cooper
Tires guaranteed to last.
Guaranteed to last up to 80,000km*
Terry Smith says "It's Cooper's stronger construction and deeper treads when compared to many original
equipment tyres, that give you safer grip, more resistance to punctures and more mileage." That's why Cooper
are the only 4WD tyres in New Zealand with a mileage guarantee in writing that ranges from 50,000 to 80,000
km, depending on size and tread pattern.
Cooper Tires are only available from authorised dealers so to help you choose the right tyre,
talk to Paul and the team Tyrepower Rolleston.
Cooper Tires - making tyres that last since 1920.
While other 4WD tyres are being made lighter and cheaper,
Cooper Tires are still being made strong with deeper tread
emember when washing machines and refrigerators
lasted a generation? And tyres used to last for years
too? Things were made to last back then. Now it
seems things are made to wear out. The reason for this is
original tyres fitted to new vehicles are made to the vehicle
manufacturer's price. The result may compromise on the
tyres' performance and life.
Cooper Tires are better value for money.
Tyre companies making aftermarket tyres exclusively for
vehicle owners like you are still providing performance
and longer life. Drivers choosing quality American made
aftermarket tyres are finding they are getting a lot more
mileage and better value for money than original tyres.
For example, Terry Smith of Exclusive Tyre Distributors
explains "When compared to the original tyres (Dunlop
AT22) fitted to the Ford Ranger, the Cooper A/T3 has
12.7mm of tread depth - that's over 29% more than
Dunlop's 9.0mm tread depth."

Fiscal changes taking
place in defence force
THE COST of living in Burnham
Military Camp could be going up
with a rent adjustment announced
for defence force personnel.
Rents for defence force staff living
in service housing and barracks will
be adjusted to meet market rates
later this year.
But regular force, reserve force
and civilian staff will also benefit
from $45 million set aside for a pay
Chief of the New Zealand Defence
Force Lieutenant General Rhys
Jones said the adjustment will
remove the rent advantage people
living in service housing have, com-
pared with those living off-base.
Other leave and allowance entitle-
ments will also cease. To cater for
this, choices are being offered in the
form of buy-backs or buy-outs of
existing entitlements, for which
$40m has been allocated.
Besides the pay rise, there is an
increase for regular and reserve force
personnel in what is known as the
military factor -- the premium paid
to uniformed personnel in recog-
nition of the hardships associated
with military life such as being sep-
arated from family and on call 24/7.
We are re-investing some of the
savings the defence force has
achieved through the last three
years transformation and reform
programmes back into our people.
This was always one of the promised
rewards of finding efficiencies -- re-
investing in our front line, which is
our people, Lieutenant General
Jones said. Behind these changes
has been the desire to be fair to all

other new recruits including a
soprano, actor, water-skier,
gymnast and an inventor.
She was tipped off about the
foundation by a friend, and
applied almost immediately.
Earlier this month she was
invited to attend a ceremony,
but had no idea she was going to
be inducted then and there.
As part of the foundation s
education programme, Steel
attended a public speaking and
media training session just a
week after she was inducted. It
was an exciting opportunity for
Steel, as she rubbed shoulders
