Unlike its competition, Cooper opted for a much lower price point with the Evolution M/T. Mud-terrain (or maximum traction off-road) tires can be very expensive, and that’s especially true for flotation sizes. However, this tire costs 20% less than the competition on average, making it by far the cheapest mud-terrain tire coming from a premium tiremaker.
When a company offers a product that’s much cheaper than the competition, it usually means the engineers cut corners somewhere. Nonetheless, Cooper promises that the Evolution M/T is a well-balanced tire that works well across the board but still focuses mostly on delivering excellent traction on the most demanding terrains.
But of course, marketing talk doesn’t always translate into great real-world performance, which is why I’ve put the tire through the paces to find how good it really is. My Cooper Evolution MT review will focus on every aspect of the tire, but of course, off-road traction and durability will be most discussed. If you want a shorter TL;DR version of my review, though, here are the pros and cons of the Evolution M/T.
