COOPER Tire Europe is the tyre of choice for all Chelsea Truck Company Defender and Jeep offerings.
Afzal Kahn’s creations can be personalised to exact individual specifications to guarantee a unique vehicle, and with tyre needs from tough and functional to urban chic, Cooper was deemed an ideal choice.
Kahn Group Chief Executive and Creative Director Afzal Kahn said: ‘The reliability, safety and performance of Cooper tyres is extremely high, just the way we need it for our customers to have the best driving experience we can offer.’
Kahn will be outfitting vehicles with the Cooper Discoverer STT Pro POR, which features a rugged tread pattern for off-road use, the Discoverer S/TMAXX POR, which combines confident road handling and off-road traction, and the Discoverer A/T3 Sport, designed in Europe specifically for all-terrain use.
Cooper tyres will be put on a variety of coach-built Defender vehicles, such as the Flying Huntsman models - designed by Afzal Kahn himself.
In addition, select Chelsea Truck Company vehicles – yet another brand which was created by Afzal Kahn – will be fitted with Cooper Discoverer A/T3 Sport tyres.
Kahn, who was given the Lifetime Achievement Award by Car Dealer Magazine said there was a great deal of synergy between Cooper and The Chelsea Truck Company. “We have a host of exciting plans to bring our new partnership with Cooper to life and offer fans of both companies the chance to get up close and personal with both brands,” he said.
“Cooper tyres are a known quantity. They work well in all the conditions that Chelsea Truck Company customers usually come across both on the open road and off road. Cooper has such a rich history, so the two companies linking up makes perfect sense.”
Cooper Tire Europe marketing director Michiel Kramer said: “We are delighted to be associated with The Chelsea Truck Company and Kahn Design. This is a great platform for us to demonstrate our long-standing expertise in producing tyres designed to handle all surfaces both on road and off road.
“Cooper’s range of tyres is dependable for exceptional grip, handling and braking. Choosing the correct tyre is vital, and I am delighted that the Kahn Group has hand-picked Cooper as its ideal choice of tyre.”
