Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 90% of the performance for 50% of the price I bought these after lots of research and comparing. I first looked at a more expensive tire, widely considered best in its class, but the sticker shock led me away. I settled on the Cooper RS3-S after comparing with a few other brands and couldn't be happier. I don't track my car (2014 Mustang GT), but I do a lot of "spirited driving" if you catch my drift. It's easy to spin any tire with 400+ horsepower, but these are very predictable and recover easily. Dry or wet, this tire handles as expected. I have a separate set of winter tires, so I can't speak to the performance of these in the snow. They're a summer tire, though, so I wouldn't even consider it. So far treadwear seems good but UHP tires always trade longevity for performance. Overall, I'd say for the price, this is the best UHP summer tire you can buy. There may be slightly better tires, but to me they are not worth the additional premium.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wet & Dry grip awesome I have these on my 2004 Corvette convertible. Dry & wet traction is superb. Coming home one day I drove into a torrential rain. Driving winds. I was on the freeway. Everyone was slowing way down & turning on their hazards. I was able to maintain a safe speed, much faster than everyone else, & felt the car was holding the road exceptionally well for so much water on the road. Only reason I didn't rate a 5, "road noise". Yep, these are a bit noisy. But hey, I'm in a convertible, mostly with the top down & radio on! I only drive 2 to 3K miles per year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Handling I have about 3,000 miles on a new set of these tires on my AWD Lincoln MKZ. Many of these miles have been in lousy, Northern Minnesota winter driving conditions...ice & snow. These are hands-down the best winter tire I have ever had on my vehicle. These tires provide great traction, handling & stopping on icy snow-covered roads. They are quiet & sure-footed on dry road surfaces as well. I'm very happy the performance of these tires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best tires I have ever owned I read all the review and watch the tirerack video reviews before buying at Pep-boys as they were the only place I could find them. I bought them in 2012 when I had 30k mile on my 2011 mustang. great dry weather traction, really good wet weather traction. my car did not slide around corners and no more tire spinning in second and 3rd gears like with the BF that came on the car. Now I have 120k miles on the car and 90K miles on the tires. the front still have some life left in the but the rears are done. I can NOT fine anyone that sells these tire. everyone says they are discontinued. When I bought them, they were offering a 40k warranty and I got 90k out of them and want another set. not looks like they lowered the warranty and possibly changed the rubber compound as some here as saying low ware life.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very short life span After only 22,500 miles I had to replace all 4 tires. They were down to 4/32 of tread. I have owned Cooper's for years and still have them on other vehicles. But these were a disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tires but nosiey These are some great tires for my mustang, they handled pretty well during auto crossing with the SCCA in Milwaukee. When they get hot/warm up hey grip pretty like the high end tires. It gets hard to break the end loose depending which surfaces your on. Otherwise it's been nice set of tires. Though I've got a half a season left to run out on them. They are noisy for everyday driving compared to other tires like the stock perilli tires. But when your using high performance tire you give up quiet driving vs pure handling. Goo

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't beat this tire for handling and price I have a 2011 grandsport corvette and do very spirited mountain runs. There are better tires out there but for half to a third of the price, I will not buy another brand. I'm currently on my 4th set and get about 10K miles out of them. I usually wear the fronts out first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my Mk7 GTI on the street I replaced B.F,Goodrich with these RS3-S. They are every bit as good, perhaps even better. My only complaint is they are noisy, but if I wanted a quiet tire I would have bought something else. Excellent road holding wet or dry right up to breaking free point. Will be putting another set on next summer. If you need a great high mileage tire do not buy UHP tires they are for traction not mileage.
