2014 Auto Review Summer Tyre Test - 205/55 R16 - 10th of 16 tyres

  • Positive - Low rolling resistance, comfortable
  • Negative - Poor resistance to aquaplaning, low traction
  • Overall - American company Cooper tyre and Rubber is among the top ten global tyre manufacturer, producing annually about 45 million tyres, but they don’t perform. With such low traction on wet roads, they can only compete with the second line of tyres. Bad braking, and poor wet cornering, meaning during road handling it was necessary to go much slower than on the competitors tyres. But the most surprising is that despite numerous transverse grooves, the tyre still aquaplanes early.. On dry roads the braking is mediocre, and the car is unstable during high-speed cornering with the rear axle sometimes sliding at the most inopportune moment. But comfort is not the worst - the average noise level and smoothness. Tyres with mediocre quality that, in Russia at least, sell for unreasonably high prices.

Top Cooper Zeon CS6 Review

Given 31% while driving a Volkswagen golf 2.0 gt tdi (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 500 average miles
Shocking tyre to the extent that I bought a car with 4 of these on which are nearly new. I'm having them removed in favour of Goodyear F1's. Why you ask? Predominantly the noise, these are the loudest tyres I've had the misfortune or owning, even on freshly laid Tarmac they are appalling. Secondly I'd class them as dangerous, wet grip is virtually non existent and even in the dry they are skittish for no apparent reason. Since looking around it seems these tyres get bad press, I can't say I'm surprised!

Given 80% while driving a Porsche 944 (225/50 R16 W) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
These tyres were firtted to my car when I bought it and had little or no wear. Recently did a 750+ mile round trip from end Of Essex to end of Cornwall meeting a wide variety of road conditions. Never had a moments concern be the road wet or dry. I drive the car as it was meant to be driven so no gentle cruising around. The tyres were a bit noisy on ridged concrete, the section of the M25 aound the junction with the A3 and on towards the M3 was the worst.

Given 47% while driving a Skoda Octavia estate (255/55 R16) on mostly motorways for 7 average miles
Found this review whilst looking for replacement tyres. A summer shower on M45 Coventry had me Aquaplaning almost off the road and going way less than speed limit. Summer grip is fine. Road noise is dependent on surface. Unlikely to buy these again.

Given 34% while driving a Ford Focus mk2 (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
Not very impressed with these. Dry grip is average, the seem to skate across the road rather than biting in and gripping. Wet grip is bad, and even on modestly powered car they are easy to spin when pulling away and the car understeers easily on wet roundabouts. They tyre constructiion is quite hard and they transmit all of the minor road imperfections to the car. The best things I can say are that they are not too noisy, and the hard compound means they last for ages. This is unfortunate as I cannot wait to replace them with something better.

Given 70% while driving a Audi A4 2.8 quattro (205/55 R16 W) on mostly country roads for 18,000 spirited miles
I just changed these out on my Quattro after just over 18,000 miles. They would have been okay for summer, but with winter coming they were a bit past it.
Seemed to me to be quite a good hard wearing chunky tyre that was not outstanding in any way really but overall very capable and trustworthy. Most of my driving is on Somerset roads with a bit of motorway occasionally. So they have driven on lumpy country lanes, gravel and dirt tracks, on fields and over beaches.
I felt that they felt a bit woolly after the old Michelins that were on the car when I bought it, just were not as sporty or poised, but they never got scary and were very progressive.
Overall a good tyre and good value. I have however just replaced them with Nokian Lines because they got such great reviews from end users and tyre tests. Will report back on them when they are worn in.
My eventual choices were Nokian, Michelin PS3 or Uniroyal RS3. I hope I have chosen well.
