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."

Leeston man first
COUNTRY'S FIRST: Leeston butcher Brian Chapman, pictured at home in his garden,
is the first New Zealander to receive a new device that aids recovery after heart
surgery. Mr Chapman, who suffered a heart attack recently, was fitted with the first
commercial heart scaffold, or stent, known as Absorb in Christchurch Hospital.
Absorb is designed to open a blocked heart vessel, restore blood flow to the heart
then dissolve. Mr Chapman said he now had to watch what he ate but was in good

A COVERT operation capturing
paparazzi-style shots of rare
native wildlife in the Styx River
catchment area has been given
Lincoln University will place
12 secret cameras along the wet-
land catchment area between
Harewood and Brooklands, to
discover what species live in the
area in case of future develop-
The silent, unobtrusive cam-
eras, funded by the Brian Mason
Scientific and Technical Trust,
will take photos day and night,
using infra-red technology.
Forest management and agri-
forestry lecturer Antony Shad-
bolt said without cameras it was
difficult to detect the full range
of species in the area, because of
the dense wetland habitat.
More weird'' wildlife species

waterways were restored, he
said. Researchers have spotted
the exotic Australasian crested

researchers aimed to gather

While such developments can
