Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Quiet, Smooth Ride and Great Traction !!! I have struggled finding a tire for my 08 Passat 2.0T (235/45/17) that will give a smooth ride, run quiet and handle the power of my APR Stage 1+ Tune, Cat Back exhaust and Intake that my car has been modified with. 1st impression was how quiet the ride is, I don't hear any noise generated by the tires while cruising at 75 on the Interstate 2nd, these tires do a really nice job absorbing the imperfections in the road, I live in western NY and our roads are not great but these tires are the smoothest I have ever had on this car. 3rd, very little tire slip from a standing start. I am over 260hp now and could never use full power without tire slip until having these RS3-G1 on the car. 4th, straight line drivability is excellent, when you change lanes and cross the expansion crack between the lanes there is no wandering at all! Holding corners with no tire roll is great, I have upgraded suspension also and these tires stick with the road as hard as I have pushed them with no indication of loss of traction (G1 is within their limits). I don't expect these tires to last 50K but considering how they have transformed my Passat I will be happy buying another set when they do wear out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Car Better Now Than When New I have a few silver hairs, and bought my first Camaro convertible 3 years ago. Came with OEM BF Goodrich TA All Season tires. I drive my car all year long near Chicago. I am not interested in having performance tires for the warm weather and winter tires for the cold. So I opt for the All Season tires. The ride with he BFG's was hard and noisy, but thought it was inherent in a performance car. I use the word 'performance' loosely as I have a V-6. When the noise of the BFG's became intolerable (55K - with ample tread remaining), I took a chance with the ZEON G1's because of everything I have read about them. My Cooper dealer assured me I would like them. Now I have the best of all worlds - superior performance handling with touring quietness and a comfortable ride. The car is better now than when it was new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PREMIUM TIRE! I am writing this simply because I am very impressed. I consider myself a very experienced tire man. I have worked for Goodyear and Bridgestone/Firestone. More than twenty years on the job. This tire is excellent in both wet and dry conditions. Very quiet. More grip than I will ever ask of it. Absorbs bumps with out being hard, like dedicated sport tires. Just very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good deal, great tire so far i drive a 1996 Formula Firebird, a fun car in summer, but not great in winter. my last two sets of tires were Goodyear gt all season. they were nice tires, but not great in rain, and poor in little slow. i got these Cooper Zeon rs3 (245-50-16) because Goodyear no longer made my size and these tho new had good reviews. mounted and balanced cost $670. a bit steep, but much less than my last set of Goodyear. i have driven on these now for about seven weeks in Portland Or. (nice town, but lots of rain) these tires handle MUCH BETTER than my old tires in the rain. i have not driven in the snow yet, and i will still try to avoid snow with this cat. i do feel if i get stuck in a snow fall that they will get me home. time will tell on that one. a some people said they are expensive, but for what they do, and the rating, they are a great deal. i would strongly recommend these tires. they do handle great in heavy rain and wet roads. much better than my Goodyear tires when they were new. and again great in rain, not sure yet in snow it is a bit early to say what i think about winter traction, tread wear, or durability. but, so far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent initial experience, quiet, very good handing I drive a 2004 Subaru WRX STi, AWD, with suspension mods and 340ftlb torque to the wheels, 326 WHP. I have always run summer performance tires for best handling, but wear is always an issue usually getting 20,000 mi out of a set of tires. I was VERY reluctant to try these new All Season G1's, but I an very glad I did. Nice aggressive look to the tire. Excellent initial experience. Tires are very quiet, they track straight with no tram-lining. Very good dry handing, equivalent to a summer performance tire. Have not been in the rain yet. I don't plan to be in the snow at all, but if dry performance is good at low temps, and wet is as good as expected, these will be a winner. I saw the review complaining about high price. I shopped on-line, had them shipped to a local dealer. I paid $600 installed ($520 for the tires including free shipping, $80 for mounting/balancing). I believe that is an excellent value for 235/40R18's. Buy these tires, you will not be dissappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gear head and tire junky So as im writing this only two hours ago i mounted two cooper rs3 g1's on the back of my lexus sc300 I my self work at a tire and repair shop in a small town in the ozarks of missouri called eminence. Being that im from new orleans my car is set up and lowered for maximum performance in the corners which we have plenty . I recieved the two tires around 11 am this morning and immediately noticed a big difference in tread design . Thread depth and side wall strength . Hands down one of the best built tires ive ever purchased and this is coming from a die hard nitto and falken fan......not any more ..ive never seen a tire built this well especially it being a all season tire. Now for the 18 mile drive home I drive highway 19 everyday and i know every corner and curve . Where i can push the car faster and where i need to throttle down defore the apex and throttle back in. Cooper are u listening ...since ive been here ive been through two sets of different tires.. Both being performance sets......the drive home was a blast ...these tires grip and grip hard ....not once did i feel the rear try to break traction....amazing just simply amazing every other set has managed to break traction at one point or another even when they were new....but not these .....i could feel a huge difference between the coopers in the back and the performance set i have up front. So well in the back that im going to re tune my suspension now in the rear and front and order two more for the front . Guys i know i only went 18 miles but when your doing 75 plus in a 45 mile and hour section that snakes ...trust me these are amazingly well built tires.....i for one have no complaints ........will be now only going with coopers on my lexus and every other vehicle Keep up the awsome work . Will be back to review in a few weeks when we have had some heavy rain and horrible weather , until then 5 across the board .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all around So far I have put roughly 10,000 miles on these tires and they are holding strong. Wet and dry conditions are perfect. There is little to no noise with these tires. My option when purchasing these were simple, I am a Michelin buyers myself. When I was given the choice between these and the tires that I was going to choose (had to order lol). I went with these. First set of Coopers, and I will be getting another set for my other car. Perfect buy, price is decent with this premium tire. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from impressive quality, hard to digest price as it was time for new tires I was put into a position where the tires I wanted were back ordered and last ditch was to purchase the new G1 from CooperTire. So far the tire represents good craftsmanship and quality with care taken during manufacturing, I say this because they balanced with minimum weights applied to the rim. As I am a believer in constant rotation we will see how the treadlife is and I log over 20K a year on my car so it will be a honest test. NOW the weak point,, the price! If you don't mind spending a little more for a excellent piece then by all means make the purchase,, however these are classified as a "premium" tire and they set the cost to reflect it,, I for one cringed at the receipt but then priced common brands with similar campaigning tires and they were not far off,,, I guess I am just a cheapskate. Overall I would give the tire a "A" rating due to how they handle, the quiet ride, the smooth ride and so far the wet roads have not been a issue.
