Re: New Cooper CS5 Touring Tyres


Hi Jalal

Yes, I have 16 Inch rims.

I originally asked for CS4s. I didn't like the sound of the CS5s, especially as they didn't appear to be on the Australian Cooper Tires website.

They are mentioned on the US website. They talk about a new silicone compound, so they could be better or worse than the CS4s.

I was pleased to be rid of the Bridgestone 683s that I have been running on for the last 7 years / 60,000km. They were incredibly noisy and had lousy grip in the wet.

If you go up a few sizes(235/60/17), you can get the Grandtrek AT3. Can't personally vouch for the tyre at all but they look like a solid all terrain and they come in Light Truck construction.

Re: New Cooper CS5 Touring Tyres


I just had four new CS5s in 225/60/R17 fitted for $233 each at Tyrepower Hervey Bay. They were somehow cheaper than the CS4s which were $265 each.
They were nice and smooth and quiet on the way home, but I'll need to drive it a bit more to see what they're really like. I shall report back emoticon

Re: New Cooper CS5 Touring Tyres


Looking forward to your report buddy....my Dunlop 7000s are nearing end of life at 65000km and I was originally considering CS4s, but will take CS5s if they're good enough!

My rim size 225/55/18

Re:


I've ordered 4 new Cooper CS5s for my TL to be fitted on Thu morning. Price $265 each, which is pretty much the cost quoted on the Coopers website ($269ea).

They will be headed straight onto the freeway back to Canberra from Newcastle...will let you know how they go.

Re:


Well, my TL is now shod with CS5s.

First impression on the freeways between Newcastle and Canberra are that the tyre seems to provide an excellent quiet ride and great directional control.

For those earlier in the thread who queried the CS5 over the CS4, the tyre dealer explained to me that the CS5 is an evolution on the CS4 and is definitely the better tyre. In the Cooper website it nicely explains all the refinements in the CS5 and in fact the CS4 is no longer on the Cooper website. Any remaining CS4s are legacy stocks as they are no longer manufactured.

Recommended pressure by the manufacturer for the X-Trail is 36PSI. Don't go by your tyre placard at all or you will prematurely wear out the tyre.

Very happy with the CS5s thus far. Early days, of course.

Re: Re:


Instant directional control and quietness are good indicators for a tyre.

To me, wet weather performance is very important.

I'm due for a full set of replacement tyres in the not too distant future & the CS5's look promising.

Hard compounds of other tyres on other vehicles have given me an aversion to tyres which may lack adhesion in the wet * (and I get plenty of that where I live), so I'd be interested to hear your experiences of how the CS5's perform on both newly wet (and greasy) roads and on roads with 5mm of water during a rain storm.

* In 1974 I had a set of 'new to the market', Yokie steelbelts on my first new car & quickly discovered that at the first hint of rain they lost all hint of adhesion. (Actually they were so hard that they barely left any tracks even at a full lockup in the dry.)
That adolescent experience will never be forgotten and it did teach me how to drive closer to conditions and how to correct the perpetual slides.

However, now being older, slower and less adventurous, it is not an experience I would wish to repeat.

I had the opportunity to test the CS5s in the rain today in Canberra. It absolutely bucketed down and it was the first decent rain in the area for some weeks.

To their credit, the CS5s seemed to grip the greasy roads very well and on the smoother tar surfaces the tyres seemed to very effectively pump the surface dry beneath them, leaving a very distinct dry trail on the road. The treads in the CS5s, like all Cooper tyres, are significantly deeper than other new tyres in the class so I would think this would benefit wet road performance. Cooper claims that the new double silica rubber compound in the CS5s is a stark difference to the CS4 and it enhances grip and wet road performance.

I've certainly been very impressed with the CS5 thus far. I'm back to work on Monday and will be driving 100km a day for the next several weeks so I'll let you know how things go. But it seems that I've made a very good choice!
