Thoughts on Cooper CS3 Touring Tire

One of the most notable features is the StabilEdge technology by Cooper which makes CS3 more stable, responsive with an enhanced cornering grip. The wider footprint offers excellent dry traction and handling.

CS3 doesn’t lag behind when it comes to wet traction as well. The circumferential grooves and 3D Micro-Gauge Siping is behind the excellent wet traction and overall performance in snow surfaces.

The winter performance is so good that it can be counted in the best all-season winter tire category

The newly-engineered pitch sequence takes care of the comfort while the reduced rolling resistance helps in making this model more fuel-efficient. Twin steel belts spirally wrapped with nylon makes CS3 durable enough. The model is highly recommended.

Pros
