  1. Cooper CS3 Touring tires?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I'm in need of some new rubber and out of all the name brand tires I've looked at, the Cooper CS3 Touring tires are are the most attractive for price and tread life. Does anyone have any experience with them? I would be going with the factory 195/65R15 size. My days of spirited driving are...

  6. Cooper Tires.. Who's used them ?

    Anything Auto
    I sold them years ago when I was managing a Goodyear store. The always seemed like a good tire. The Sentra has just clocked past 70,000 miles - got it with 42K. The Fuzion's were brand new when we got it. Though they look like they'd go another 20K+, the noise is getting unbearable. It sounds...
  7. Mini Cooper - How Can I Pump her Up?

    Anything Auto
    I just picked up a 2003 Mini Cooper 5 speed with my girlfriend. For various reasons, we decided on the stock Cooper model instead of the S (can you guess which one I wanted?). I did manage to get one with the sport suspension and 16" wheels, and I have to admit that the cornering difference...

  9. Some Nokian tires made by Cooper?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    My parents came to visit the other weekend. When we stepped outside to go to the store (getting into my parent's Blazer) my dad commented about his new tires. I stepped back and saw he had Nokian Vatiivas (SUV all-season tires)! This is the cheapest man alive so my comment was, "H*** S***...

    Anything Auto
    Do we like these on here? Any opinions? She's looking for a new car. She needs a new car badly; she will drive a car for 10-15 years to be honest. Fuel economy is important (she commutes through Austin's winding hill country), but she is at a point now she wants to have a little fun after...

  13. Cooper tires? WTF?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    hey all. I landed a set of rs6 rims with new tires, but the tires are cooper zeon 2xs. I cant find a review for these tires and all the old reviews from 01 and back do not show cooper tires as reliable. The Zeon tires are a new flag ship design for cooper and I was wondering if anyone knows...
