    Questions and Answers for the Cooper CS2

    2017-04-04 - Hi, I currently have two 175/65 R14 Cooper cs2 tyres. I was looking on eBay to buy another two. While looking, I found two single tyres from different sellers both with similar wear. However the sellers do not specify if the tyres are directional or not. Could you tell me if they are in fact directional or not? Thanks!

    The Cooper CS2 is an asymmetric tyre.

    By my standards these tyres have behaved without fault for over 20,500 miles. Both wet and dry performance has been worry free

    I like these tyres they give good feedback, wet grip could be better, we’ll see how the winter months fare!

    had these tyres on for about 6 months and have done around 4000 miles with them on 90% A and B roads, the only good point is that they haven't really worn at all in that time.

    If you buy these tyres forget spirited driving! Dry grip is bad by my standards having to watch how fast i set off in my 108 BHP civic as these tyres have a tendancy to spin up.

    wet grip is aweful, slides all over the place at reasonably slow speeds, so set off 10 minutes early, if you rush you will probably find a ditch along your way, or it will look like ken block borrowed your car either way.

    in 4000 miles of A and B roads the sidewall is now incredibly deformed with 2.2 BAR in the tyre it looks like it is low on air, and it now has a slow flat!

    before these tyres i got between 40 and 50 mpg, with them new i was getting around 40mpg and now i am getting between 35 and 25 mpg.

    previously had yokohoma ae01 they dont last long but they handle better and give better mileage.

    Have been running these tyres since the end of November 2012 to the present (January 2016) with no complaint and they work well all year. In heavy rain they clear standing water well. There is one tight roundabout on my route to work which is poorly surfaced and seems like it is covered in diesel or similar, I can feel the tyres warning me not to push any further but it hangs onto the road well with a gentle, progressive feel and if pushed a little harder there is controlable understeer. In the dry I rarely hear a squeal from them without being silly. They wear well and I keep on buying them.

    Generally decent dry grip, slightly prone to understeer and not very good on loose surfaces. Understeer is progressive; Doesn't lose grip all in one go.

    In the wet, runs out of grip very quickly and becomes is very slippery under braking and understeery in corners; Have to take them a lot slower than you would in the dry.

    Seem quite hard wearing so far!

    Fitted these on my Peugeot 306 2.0 hdi bought the car used and had to change all 4 tyres shortly after, it cost around £40 a corner so quite good value.
    The difference was noticeable straight away noise levels dropped considerably , braking improved and grip noticeably improved in both wet & dry. I've done just over 20,000 miles and still have over 3mm tread on the front and 5mm on the rear so got a few thousand miles of wear left after I rotate them. I will definitely be replacing them with Coopers when the time comes and would (and have) recommend them to friends and family.
