Re: New Cooper CS5 Touring Tyres


Having had the CS5s on for a while now, I can say I'm thoroughly impressed so far.

We had a nice big storm with bucket loads of rain last week, road covered in water. It was the first decent storm in months too, so there would have been a lot of oily crap on the roads. They sliced right through it, not the slightest loss of grip or aquaplaning. I pushed them too.

I just got home from a trip down to Brisbane, and they were awesome cruising on the highway, driving in the city, and driving home in the drizzle this morning.

So all good so far. I'll update as I go emoticon

Re: New Cooper CS5 Touring Tyres


I recently did a trip from Adelaide to the Sunshine Coast and back on my CS5s (5000km) They were much quieter than my previous Bridgestones.

I am noticing that the CS5s lose grip momentarily if I take off a bit fast at the lights. I don't recall the Bridgestones doing this.

I haven't had a chance to do much driving in the wet, but the comments from others here are positive.

Re:


I have had my CS5s for nearly 2500km and continue to be very impressed.

In all weather conditions from hot/dry to pouring rain/standing water puddles the tyres seem to have excellent grip.

Off road I have only driven on rough dirt roads but the tyres performed exactly as I would expect them to.

The stand-out trait for me remains the directional stability. I've never felt an X-Trail handle so well.

Very happy with the CS5.

Re: New Cooper CS5 Touring Tyres


G'day folks,

Just noticed the CS4 thread that has been started.

We put CS4's onto our '09 diesel in Oct 2010 at a price of $1120 fitted for the 4. This was in Outback QLD however, so a little pricier than mainstream.

The crappy Dunlop factory fits had managed just 34900 K - by FAR the worst we've had from any new tyre on any new car!!

The Coopers lasted until July 2013 and 93114 KM. Cost at that time for the 2nd set was $1088 fitted at Toowoomba QLD.

So these are now at 36000KM with no appreciable signs of wear. They'll last until at least the same as the first set I would think.

Performance wise, never had cause to complain. Never had a puncture on our predominantly bitumen/crappy gravel road trips, and no doubt the XTrail will be shouted its third set at somewhere around 226000KM - I should think it will be up to it!!

Cheers,

---

Re:


I've now travelled over 11,000km in just four months on my CS5s in all weather and road conditions and continue to be extremely impressed. They still look near new and no appreciable sign of wear at all.

I know many have had bad experiences with Coopers but I can't say anything against the CS5. I got 67,000km out of my original fit Dunlop 7000s but I'm expecting much more than that from the Coopers.

Very impressed indeed.

Re: New Cooper CS5 Touring Tyres


My 5 cents worth,
The stock & crappy DUNLOP ST20s (I think they were) only lasted 40.000km. That wasn't even hard driving.
 I chose the COOPER CS4 (back in 2011/2012) and they now have at 50+OOOkm on them, and look only 1/2 worn.
The grip is great in all weather, quiet and they drive really well. These have done some good off-road driving, deflated to 18ish PSI on steep rocky tracks (eg. BLUE RAG Track in VIC High country) etc. Performed perfectly. Out of the 50,000kms, 3-5 thousand of that would be dirt/gravel road.

We often travel with a 4WD instructor (camping friends) and he wouldn't have let us followed most places if we didn't have the COOPER TYRES (Compared to the standard supplied tyres).
 
If the CS5's are better than the CS4's, these will be chosen as the replacement tyres for our EXY.

Re:


My CS5s are now over 20,000km old and the coloured tread wear indicators haven't even started showing yet.

They are wearing incredibly evenly and I've had no problem with them at all. I know a lot of people who have bad things to say about Cooper Tyres but thus far I've been nothing but impressed.
