I started using Cooper Tires for our fleet of vehicles at my company after many complaints of poor grip in the wet from other tires. I stated using these tires on our Nissan Sentras. After no complaints I put a set on my personal car. 1998 BMW 323is. These are great tires. I live in the mountains so I drive about 100 miles a day. These tires hold the road great even in the wet. I push my car hard in the twisty mountains and I have no issues with grip. These tire are comparable to the Michelin Pilots I did have but can no longer get. Great price as well. Highly recommend them to any one. The CS5 are great too with Mini vans.
these tires spin-up under even mild acceleration in the wet, and slide all over the place. not much better in the dry. winter traction seemed ok in the couple of snowy days last winter. they are at least predictable.
I purchased a set of these tires at 41,600 miles. Two of the four tires failed at 51K, and were replaced under warranty. I now have 64,800 miles on my van and all four tires are worn out. The vehicle has been alligned 3 times since purchasing the tires, so alignment is not the problem. I got less than 35K on the original two tires. They are practically slicks! I will NEVER so long as I live buy another set of Cooper tires: not at any price!
Tire is not quiet. Would not purchase again. Noise effects overall rating of tire.
I got 4 tires for a 2014 kia forte put them on around the 25000 mile mark. Now have just over 54000 miles and the tires are below the wear bar indicators. Tires were maintained and rotated every 5000 to 7000 miles and every tire has the same amount of tread to the 32nd of the inch I would say they are no good
Put a set of 215-70-15's on my 99 Pontiac Montana a few months back and I like them a lot. Improved handling, good gas mileage, good traction in heavy rain. Drove through three blizzards so far this winter, haven't gotten stuck once. Overall a very good tire. I do mostly poor condition secondary roads and highways driving. 30 miles one way to work. Nice quiet ride, good handling. No complaints from me.
I had a set of the Cooper CS3 installed on my Subaru Impreza just yesterday drove to the rain this morning standing puddles of water tired never wavered a bit it held the road just as if it was dry the ride is greatly improved from the stock OEM Yokohama Avid s33 that came on the car 17000 miles tires were gone. so far I love the rain I love how it handles in the Rain the only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because I have not driven it in the snow yet but from the way it looks these tires preform great in the snow. The reason the three on the teadwear is I haven't had him that long I don't know and I didn't mark anything on the durability because I do not know that yet but I will be updating my review later
