    Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring Tire Review

    Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring Tire Review: As far as compact commuter cars go, my 2013 Kia Forte 5 is an appliance like any other. It's the car I leave behind when I pick up different vehicles to test each week, and even though the odometer only shows about 37,000 miles (60,000 kilometers) most of those were racked up on the highway and took a heavy toll on the tires that have been on the car since new.

Due to the asymmetrical tread pattern they work very well on my car. I'm pleased with handling, grip, braking, everything in the wet and in the dry. The ride is smooth and quiet. And treadwear is good so far.

What is bad?
I'm dissatisfied with the tire.I have bought several sets of these Cooper tires over the last 3 years because of the fast treadwear. I have to drive a 80-90 miles a day for a work. I've never got anywhere close to the mileage they were rated though I've rotated and balanced them as needed.
Comments
Would never buy any again.

Treadwear
Wet Performance
Due to the asymmetrical tread pattern they work very well on my car. I'm pleased with handling, grip, braking, everything in the wet and in the dry. The ride is smooth and quiet. And treadwear is good so far.

What is bad?
I'm dissatisfied with the tire.I have bought several sets of these Cooper tires over the last 3 years because of the fast treadwear. I have to drive a 80-90 miles a day for a work. I've never got anywhere close to the mileage they were rated though I've rotated and balanced them as needed.

Would never buy any again.

    I love my Cooper CS5s. They are exactly what I was searching for in an all-season, touring tire. They are super quiet, have a long life expectancy and provide fairly agile handling for a touring tire. The soft sidewall is obvious when performing evasive manuevers, but they are predictable which I'll take any day over tires that lose grip suddenly. These tires evacuate water well and even in deep puddles their grip is impressive. I knew up front that these tires don't perform well in snow, but I love that the tires have a lot of silica imbedded in the rubber compound.

    Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring Tire Review

    Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring Tire Review: As far as compact commuter cars go, my 2013 Kia Forte 5 is an appliance like any other. It's the car I leave behind when I pick up different vehicles to test each week, and even though the odometer only shows about 37,000 miles (60,000 kilometers) most of those were racked up on the highway and took a heavy toll on the tires that have been on the car since new.
