Noisy and Uneven wear

published

Fitted to PxII Ranger from new and have to rotate these tyres every 5,000kms to even the wear out but road noise and fuel consumption still high.
Happened to drive Ranger Raptor with BFG KO2's and couldn't believe how quiet they were.....last pair of Coopers for me.

Purchased in July 2016.

the strong existence.

published

The sound of the tyre will be flooded by wind noise, which is relatively obvious compared with the suburban and urban expressway tire noise. The start is slightly sluggish but the brakes, handling performance and mute effect are very strong. The normal urban area certainly increases, the pattern design is relatively rough, the strong existence.

Who said they were noisy?

published

I had decided on the ST Maxx based on some personal recommendations and the reviews posted but I had expected to have to tolerate some additional road noise. Even putting aside the fact that it’s a 76 Series Landcruiser I couldn’t hear any road noise and definitely less than my previous tyres. Was thrilled to bits about that! Yet to test them in the mud but plans are on the kitchen table for that!

Perfect off road tyre

Car2011 Isuzu Dmax

Excellent so far

published

These tyres are great on road so far, I haven't been off road yet with them. Comparing the tread pattern and look, road noise is far less than many other A/T tyres. Good grip on wet surface as well. I have done 5,500 kms in 4 months and happy to give 5 stars now.

Great tyres!

published

I've had these tyres on my car since new 38000km they would have at least another 50k in them, excellent road and off road handling and feedback. Pressure, rotation and wheel alignment are critical with these tyres as they are a bit less forgiving in that department and heel and toe quite rapidly.

Very heavy duty tyres

published

We're very happy buying these set of tyres because we've always bought coopers because they last longer than other brands we've had before. This time we got these as we're planning on longer trips via mud roads and thought it could handle it. They feel really nice on normal roads

So far so good

published

Fitted these tyres with a little uncertainty but after 50k travelled with plenty of life left and no issues I am confident in my purchase, they have handled plenty black top, plenty of rocky roads towing the camper trailer, they have been rotated every 10k and balanced probably 2 times in the 50k. they seem to be wearing even, Fairly noisy but going from the Dunlop’s fitted from factory you’d be mad to think they would be as quite.

Good off road, but highway performance not so great

published

I have run these tyres for about 30000kms on my Amarok before removing them and moving them to my off-road camper. The off-road performance on all surfaces is good and they air down well on soft sand. They are very durable and I have only suffered one puncture. However, their on-road performance is not so great. Comparing these to the BFGoodrich KM2 which I now run, the coopers provide a harsher ride, poorer steering feedback and less precise handling (and the KM2s are probably better off-road as well). But the real killer for me was the Cooper's highway tyre noise which has an irritating combination of rumble (like diff noise) and whine which only seems to get worse with age.

Reliable tyres

published

I've had the tyres for about 12 months now and done over 10,000kms in various conditions. No issues at all. Traction is great on and off the road and the noise level is minimal. Comes with an 80k warranty providing you rotate every 10k which is great. I would definitely re-purchase these.

Great wheels

published

I purchased these tires 12 months ago and they still seem like new. Durable and comfortable driving in my SUV. Grippy in the wet and have been a lifesaver on one occasion. Would definitely purchase these again as they outlast any other brand I’ve used in the past. Totally like be Cooper types.

Hey guys I have got the cooper st/maxx tyres put on my 2018 hilux, I seem to get a lot of vibration in the Ute, through the whole cab, seats and everything, when driving on rougher sealed roads, haven’t taken it off road or on gravel as yet but I’d imagine it would do much the same if not worse, I haven’t taken it back into the shop yet, just thought I’d ask your opinions first! any ideas? thanks in advance

I would be straight back to the shop, it sounds like a balance or alignment issue. Do a good visual check on all tyres to be sure they are identical specifications and there are no tread defects.

Stuart J

I'm assuming all the basics are checked or attended to by the tyre fitter/supplier
Ie Each wheel balanced and alignment all good at time of fitment - and that the vibration has occurred only after the Coopers went on?
Not too sure what your original tyres were but some of the newer HiLuxes we have seen have come standard with a road-bias tyre which run quietly and smoothly on bitumen. The ST Maxx is quite a blocky thing and will run noisy and a bit viby on bitumen, but not to the extent that it intrudes into the cab.
If you can't cover the noise by turning the radio up (hahaha) then it sounds like you have a greater problem than that
If you have access to an old set of tyres (still legal tread but on the way out) swap the Coopers out and see if the vibes stop
Unfortunately, if you do find that the Coopers are the source of the problem you then enter the world of despair that is the Coopers "Warranty Process"
Unless you have a really good supplier - or a lot of time and money to spend pursuing an American Company internationally - then you are pretty much doomed
If you can make it more expensive for Coopers to ignore you than it is to replace the tyres (or refund your money !!!) they may act in your favour
To this point I do not know anyone who has had successful Cooper-factory warranty replacement
The 'Warranty' replacement is usually provided by the local supplier (often at his own expense) so HE doesn't get a bad name for supplying tyres that have failed or have been faulty at time of supply
I do know suppliers who will no longer stock Coopers - in Brisbane,Townsville, Mackay, Rocky, Blackall, Longreach - citing that as one of the reasons
Coopers make more consistent quality TV ads than they do tyres
Good luck
