Are You Considering Cooper Tires?

Read what people are saying about Cooper Zeon 2XS Tires

The Zeon 2XS from Cooper Tires are popular for those that are looking for a very high performing summer tire. Having speed ratings of V, W, and Y mean that owners of these tires can expect fantastic steering response, handling through cornering, and very good traction in both dry and wet conditions.

Handling is said to be 'quick and crisp' because of a center rib and a tread pattern that evacuates water away from the contact area. A 'Double Shoulder Tread Element' reduces noise and vibration, making for a comfortable ride.

To improve wear on the tire, Cooper has tapered the tread depth so there are deeper treads towards the center. This allows for more material on the part of the tire that wears the quickest. For those concerned with long wear life in a tire, this is a great feature.


Cooper Zeon 2XS's are currently priced at about $160 at Sears Tires, and Cooper offers a 45 day road test. These are very high performing tires.


Cooper TiresWith with tapered tread depth, the Zeon 2XS's are a great deal (though they may be hard to find since they are in such high demand). However, what are owners of these tires saying? Let's look at some of the unbiased online tire reviews.




Positive Online Comments:

  • "I love the Cooper Zeon 2XS tires. I bought them from Sears Tires over a year ago and have loved the performance and handling. Wet weather driving is noticeably better than the Goodyear tires I had before."
  • I have owned Goodyear, Kumho Ecsta, and BF Goodrich tires, the Zeon 2XS's are the best I have had... great traction and long tread life. With my driving style I'd have to replace the other tires within a year, but the Cooper Zeon 2XS tires lasted about twice as long. Anyone looking for performance tires should seriously look at these.
  • Not quite at the performance level of Michelin PS2's when driving very aggressively (fast and tight turns), but I was very impressed with the Zeon's. Since Cooper Tires are less expensive I don't see any reason to go back to the Michelin's.
  • "In my 30 years of driving, I can definitely recommend this tire as the best brand I've ever owned. Great job Cooper."

Negative Comments on the Zeon 2XS:

  • "I have had these tires for over 50K miles and there is still plenty of tread on them. The problem is that I didn't rotate the tires frequently enough and they started getting noisy. Since I'll likely have these Cooper tires for a long time, I'm stuck with the noise. Great tires... just remember to rotate them"
  • May be hard to find these tires. I do see them for sale at Sears Tires, but other outlets have shown them to be unavailable.

Final thoughts from

We had a hard time finding any substantial negative online tire reviews for the Cooper Zeon 2XS. The general consensus is that these are fantastic tires that satisfy those with aggressive driving styles.

People looking looking for a great all-around long lasting tire will appreicate the Zeon's. The price is right, and this tire company has proven to put out quality tires for a very long time.

If you're in the market for tires that perform very well and are not crazy expensive, then you should get over to Sears Tire and pick them up. At the time of this review, several of the Discount Tire Company stores were stating that they didn't have them in stock but could order them.
