Re: New Cooper CS5 Touring Tyres


Had the coopers a week now.
Done freeway work at a constant 120klm/hr and it tracked beautifully.

Towed my 1200 kg boat around over rough and blacktop and again no issues at all.

Driven in heavy rain and muddy roads again, no problem at all.

No wondrous, glowing reports, just tyres that work well and behave themselves, which is exactly what I want.

They do seem to be a little quieter than the originals, but if the locak council made real roads it wouldn't be a problem.

Re: New Cooper CS5 Touring Tyres


Hey guys

I was lucky enough to pick up a 2012 TS diesel last week to replace my 2003 TI Exy. Very happy so far but looking to replace the tyres pretty soon.

The CS5 has caught my eye, but we occasionally get on the beach to go camping...are these any good on the sand? I was looking at the BFGoodrich All Terrains but I think that might be overkill for us and we'd loose some fuel efficiency? I guess we're 90% road 10% sand/gravel...think Stradbroke Island, Double Island Point, etc!

I've got Yoko Geolanders on the 2003 and I've been happy with those...just looking at other options.

Cheers!

Re:


If you're 90/10 like you say you are then CS5s will be fine for you.

I've had CS5s for just on a year now and nearly 25,000km later they're hardly worn at all - the special tread wear indicators haven't even started showing yet.

I've used the CS5s on the highways, dirt tracks and mud but not as yet on sand. But for what I use them for and as a self-confessed softroader, CS5s suit me perfectly and I've been very impressed with them.

Re: New Cooper CS5 Touring Tyres


The aggressive edges of the BFG A/Ts will dig into the sand more where the rounded edges of the CS5s should bag-out more letting you "float" over the sand easier.
If you are not doing a lot of off-roading on rocky tracks then the BFGs will be wasted.
Even standard HTs are fine for sand work.

Just to be precise, "bagging out" of a tyre is not necessarily the thing to look for.

When decreasing pressure, yes the "width" of the tyre footprint does grow by a small margin, the actual benefit is in the "length" of the tread that contacts the surface.

In alot of cases, a tyre that "bags out" noticeably at lower pressures generally has a weak sidewall.

Re:


just clocked up 30k on the coopers tyres.
Still have the little square tyre wear indicator, apparently each side wears down to 3 marks for 3/4 wear left 2 marks for 1/2 wear left etc etc.

Extrapolating on this hypothesis, I can expect better than 120k from these tyres.
They still grip great, run quiet and have done a bit of 4x4 work without problem.

Liking these tyres more and more.

Re: New Cooper CS5 Touring Tyres


I'm planning to fit CS5 Grand Touring 215/65R16's to our 2007 T30-II auto in the next few months.

Most reports on these tyres are very favourable, but I'd be interested to hear from any X-Trail owners who have had any negative issues with them.

Our use profile is 90-95% sealed road and 5-10% unsealed roads, with no serious off-road stuff.
