Cooper tires

Recommended Posts

We had parelli tires on our last SUV. Lasted 6 years. We don’t drive much. Still had tread but cracked and beginning to dry rot on the side walls so bought Goodyear. Have since sold the car and have a newer one. I have heard Cooper is a good tire for the Mexican roads and less expensive than other name brands. Just asking how Cooper tires perform here if anyone has them.

The UV radiation really degrades tires. Replacing every 4-5 years, like mentioned above, would be advised. Your life might depend on it. Regarding brands, Cooper Discovery used to be a good tire but my experience has been good with Michelin and Bridgestone.

Everything you need to know about UTQG ratings
What’s a UTQG rated tire, you ask? Excellent question. UTQG stands for Uniform Tire Quality Grading, a standard created by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). It’s a system that lets consumers compare tires based on treadwear, traction and temperature. In other words, the UTQG is a handy shopping tool that can lead you to the right set of tires.

"the highest UTQG rating is 860 for a Hankook model"

Where do you find the date on the tire?  Inside or outside of the side wall? Will it read month and year or just year.  

Here's what I Found for Cooper tires:
