I have a set of Coopers on my pick up. They have about 20000 miles on them and they are still over half tread. These are a 22" rim and 9 inches wide. I am happy with them. Like any tire company they offer different tires with different warranty and tread life.

Default Re: cooper tires

Throughout the years I have used Cooper tires on many vehicles, never had a problem with them. Had a set of P215/65R15 Coopers on my '39 conv for almost ten years. They were mounted on custom made 15x7 wheels. Had to replace the tires a couple of years ago because they developed cracks..
I seem to recall that Cooper Tire is a division of Goodyear.

I am running Hankook Touring tires on my 97 T Birds. They are cheap, wear like iron and are warranted for 90K miles. Never had an issue with any of them except they go wang wang when running down the road. Chinese made.

I run Cooper blackwalls on my 40 Ford Wagon and they are fine tires.

Cooper tires are fine, They also reduce road noise, we have found, when properly balanced and inflated to spec.

I run Cooper tires on several of my cars. They are usually the best priced. Have run Hankook on some cars also as well as semi's. Zero problems with either one.

Coopers are good. I ran Coopers on our fleet vehicles back when I was working.

Had them on my work car and no problems, when they came out seemed low priced but after awhile the prices seem within a few dollars of others. I did buy a set of studded snow tires and had the block tread start coming off, they warrantied. I blame it on wife going 70 mph on interstate though.

Don't know about their passenger car tires but have used Cooper AT3's on my trucks for years. Would not use anything else.

They are one of only a handful that are still made in the USA, one more reason to buy them. I just bought a set for my '01 Jimmy.

I usually put Michleans on everything but when my wife bought a new Cadillac in 2018 it came with Coopers so we decided to give them a try. Shes got about 16 thousand on them with no problems except it seems like we have to ad air more often than normal????

I especially like the blackwall Cooper tires on antique cars because they make them with smooth sidewalls without all that design work imprinted like most modern blackwalls. I am running them on my 40 Ford wagon and they look great.

Shoe Box Jack: From what I understand, Cooper tires are the only tire that is made in the USA. Akron Ohio.

I've had very good service out of Cooper tires on the Chevy Blazer. Used Cooper Discoverers from it are now on the 52 Merc and working great.

I just bought two Cooper tires for the front of my Pick up, and very satisfied with them. I have been using Good Years on both my truck and car but the last set I got for my truck
were crap. I will stick with Cooper tires now.
