Only because you asked. Last time I ran Coopers was on a Chevy Blazer back in '73. They had a very open, aggressive tread for winter (I was out in the boonies running a route at 2-4am with no support) and all 4 tires suffered fatal tread separations and blowouts in the first winter. I hope they're better quality by now but I've never bought another Cooper tire.Just got some new tires, and my mechanic recommended Coopers. Got 2 for the front and they ride great & have great ratings.
Tried tirerack.com, but they didn't have Coopers.
Anybody have anything bad to say about Coopers?
sorry....which one?got the Discover model...
my mpg was still ok on my Element....just a very slight drop. (my tire size changed a bit, but I adjusted via using my gps for acurate mileage calculations) The sidewall on my Element's ATRs took a good beating w/ no problems.Biggest drawback to all Cooper tires is high rolling resistance which costs 2 to 5% in gas mileage, but this is due in part to their heavy sidewalls. I like heavy sidewalls as they help avoid punctures form gravel, rocks and sticks.
