Cooper CS4, The Best Tires I ever owned
(Midlothian, VA, USA)
I was weary of buying Cooper tires, as I never even heard of them. But after reading how Cooper spent 200 million on research, I decided to give them a try.
Here I am after 50,000 driving, writing this review. The ride and handling is amazing. I am amazed how long these tires lasted with the issues, I am about to explain. About a year or so driving on these tires, for some reason, the rear tires started making noise and the noise kept getting louder. Later, I found, the rear struts were bad and caused cupping on these tires. Since, then I have driven about 40,000 on these tires, without any issue and never rotating tires (as I did once, and the noise was transferred to front which was annoying).
I cannot tell you how many times, I had to replace tires that had 55000 or 65000 mile warranty after 25,000 miles or so. But these tires, with all the issue, my strut created, no alignment, balancing or rotation keep on trucking. I am very impressed. I know these are 80,000 miles tires but I would swear that these tires would easily last 80,000 miles if it was not because of my 2008 Honda CRV-EX strut issue.
