Fantastic

published

Awesome tyres for the price. Running them on a kia sorento 2015. As long as they are rotated properly they should last 20-30000 km longer than their nearest competitor. Grip uncompromised even in the wet. Great follow on from the cs4's which I had on an old x-trail.

Purchased in January 2019.

Great First Impression

published

I have had these installed on my Subaru Forester XT and have driven about 5000 km. This has included driving on the beach and along riverbed type 4x4 tracks with plenty of sharp rocks.

The tyres have performed well with no damage evident from the rough tracks while still outperforming the cheap road tyres that were previously on the car during on road performance. Including high speed on wet roads.

Overall I am happy so far and will consider these a good value buy even if I only get another 30,000 km which they should far exceed.

Purchased in July 2019.

Good change to start

published

Just replaced Toyo A24 with Cooper's today. It rained all day today and I can clearly feel the comfort in wet condition on day 1 comparing with the first day of buying the car. The old ones started deteriorating at 60K and we're done and dusted by 74K. These come with 80K warranty. Let's hope they keep the same way going forward

Purchased in June 2019 at Tyrepower for $255.00.

Perfect

published

I purchased these tyres 3 months ago and have done around 5000kms in this time. The tyres are wearing very well and a great in wet weather conditions and gravel roads. The car is also much better on fuel and has a much smoother ride. I highly recommend these tyres for a safer drive.

Excellent Tyres

published

What can I say, Cooper are a very good tyre manufacture.
They are more expensive but worth it.
These are my 3rd set of Coopers on this car and I can't recommend them highly enough.
They are over a year old and have few thousand of kms on them but still look like new.
Still very quiet, smooth and we feel reassured driving on them.
I bought them from Tyrepower at Geebung, Qld. Chris is excellent to deal with.

Done at 25k on the front but the rear still like new

published

These Cooper CS5 tyres are good but on our particular SUV really needed to rotate them front to back at 10000 or 15000. Without rotation around the vehicle our front tyres were both equally done after 25000 kms and the rear tyres still have plenty of tread left. They are quiet on the highway and never missed a beat across a fairly wet season in SE Qld.

Great tyres

published

I purchased these tyres about a year ago and so far they are wearing very well. They are not noisy. They are great in wet weather and fuel economy has improved since I had these tyres fitted on my car. I have always been a Michelin girl but I may be convinced these are as good or better.

Redeemed

published

The tyres in my previous evaluation settled down after about a month and my feel for the road normalised.
I have just changed them after 100,000 klms. Quite impressive wear and tear.
Yes, I did replace them with the same tyres and there has been no repeat of the original problem.

Don't buy these purely for low noise.

published

Just fitted 2 of these, CS5 215/65/16 to the front of my 2006 Tucson and they are a little noisier than the old mostly worn out kumhos that were on it . Steering is similar, maybe holding a straight line better, but no improvement in cornering on this car with generally lethargic under steer.
Comfort and minor bump absorption feels a little better. From a strictly noise perspective I would try something different next time.

Excellent tyre

published

I recently changed my car tyres from Hankook to the CS5 Grand Touring from Cooper Tyres.
Excellent tyre in the wet and dry, deep treads that prevented me from having and almost certain smash whilst towing a caravan in a recent trip to the top end. I was looking for a well priced tyre that could deliver good mileage and not get punctures ie, has a very strong tread construction including thicker steel belts to withstand punctures.

These tyres are quite and the car now feels planted to the road giving me the confidence whilst cornering that I never felt with the Hankooks. All round the best value for money in a car tyre. I will definitely buy Coopers again.

Excellent

published

Had them on since June. They're quieter and handle much better than my old tyres on the bitumen (Even when I had the old tyres on passengers said they were really good in the handling department). Even on dirt roads they're so much better than my old tyres it's like driving on bitumen. They're great in the wet too. I just don't have enough praise for these tyres.

Quite and improved handling

published

NB. Several months and 30,000km later these tyres are still awesome very little wear unlike other tyres I've had. They still handle well in all conditions. I'll be buying these again when the time comes.
Bought these after wearing out Bridgestone ecopia on my 09 Subaru Forester and am very happy so far. I’ve done about 2000km so far. They hold the road well and are a lot quieter than the Bridgestones. If I get anything close to 80,000km out of them I’ll be wrapped.

I recently purchased a set of CS5 grand touring tyres for my Jeep Cherokee Longitude. At this time I cannot vouch for durability but compared to my old tyres these are 100% quieter on the road. As i travel on unsealed roads I have found the handling to be great,

Cooper cs5 grand touring for my Honda crv

published

These tyres are great and long lasting,it also comes with written 80,000 kms warranty. Have had other sets of tyres for my Honda CR-V,but would be buying cooper from now on. It drives great in the wet and dry but yet to use it off road. These tyres are also good in braking distance as well. Would recommend it.

Long wearing great ride

2nd set I've fitted to my car, got around 65,000 out of first set only fitted second set because I spiked the sidewall on one tyre,
I've have over 40,000 on the second set and they are only about 1/4 worn, hope to get well over 80,000 kilometres that they are guaranteed for,

Cooper CS5 on my Aussie Subaru...

published

I have these on my Subaru XV and drive a mix of sealed, unsealed and snow conditions in Australia. They work really well and wear really well too. I think these are a great upgrade on the originals that come stock with the car, and if you do more than drive sealed rides, a must!!

As always, drive to the conditions in unsealed and snow conditions.

Are CS5's directional tyres?

Suggest you direct this question to a tire expert- I am just an end user - no idea.

Do you mean supplier or retailer? You can get them in most big Queensland towns and cities from the main retailers.

I currently have Bridgestone Dueler H/T687 215/65R 16 98H on my 2012 Forester. If I change 4 tyres to the Cooper CS5 can I still use my unused Bridgestone spare as a spare or will I have to buy 5 CS5's?

Hi Chris,
I am not an expert on tyres. I am just a person who uses them. I suggest that you contact either a tyre retailer or your local motoring organisation. They could give you the technical realities of using mixed brand tyres.
Ps I have a Geolander as my spare but have not needed to use it so far. I would only use my spare to get me out of trouble before replacing it with another Cooper CS5.

Quite a few years ago, I was in a Nissan Patrol, in the Outback, when it started raining, turning some areas into skating rinks. After hitting a hidden hole (covered in watery mud) the Patrol, skidded to the side hit the edge of the road and turned over. The car belonged to my employer and when rescued several hours later, one of the rescuers was a car mechanic. He said one of the contributory factors was a mix of tyres, across axles, probably caused by swapping out after a puncture. On my own vehicles, I have always had five same tyres fitted and rotated as necessary.

I would use the Bridgestone as it is only a temporary fix until you either repair or replace the damaged CS5.
