The tires are a lot of bang for the buck as most tires in this size are either $125 each or even up to $200++ I have purchased 3 sets of these and literally have a set stored in my garage because of the good price here on this site. Great dry grip, slightly questionable in the rain at times. But, for the money and overall features I can live what that. You should not be disappointed unless you drive like a bat of out of hell.

I put this tire on a Triumph Rocket 3 for use with a sidecar. Nice looking tire with aggressive tread. Plenty of clearance with a standard ride height motorcycle. I do not have a Lamborghini but Triumph was not an option for me to choose.

Bought a set 4 years ago, and love the design of the tire but had little hope since they were so cheap. But low and behold they are the best i've ever had! YES they do loose air, easy fix though! When having them installed, have them put a bead sealer on them and that fixes that problem. Second they make some noise, but not bad at all, the roads them selves make more noise so I see no problems there. I have already got three other sets for my other cars and plan on getting another set in the near future. Remember, when getting these installed, have a bead seal put on and get alignment and regularly check tire pressure to maintain even tread wear, do these and these are great tires for anybody!!!

Got these on my 5speed IS300 when I bought it used. All tread depths were at 6/32nds. I haven't had any road noise, cupping, or anything drastic happen to these tires. Grip isn't perfect, but still drives well through snow and heavy rain. I think everyone else who left a review just doesn't know how to drive per weather situation. I do drift it rarely, they grip when you want them to, and they break traction when you want them to.

Great Tire

I bought my Cobalt last summer with these tires on them practically brand new. Not quite sure why other people are saying they are noisy. On my SS they are phenomenal. They look sporty which is a plus and have outstanding grip when dry. My cobalt is more of a show car so I don't drive it during winter. However I will agree with some other reviewers in that when the roads are wet these tires don't get the greatest of traction. All in all excellent buy for the money without a doubt.

These tires came on the car when I bought it. Very impressed with them even before I knew how inexpensive they are. I drive the CRAP out of these things and have put a little over 15000 miles on them and they are now getting to the point of needing to be replaced. Excellent dry traction, wet traction is a whole different story. It's not that it is bad, it's that it is non-existent. But anyone who said they were completely disappointed just needs to see prices of other tires of the same or similar size. Great value and a lot of tire for only 90 bucks!!!!!

Started off really noisy and rumbly but have quieted and smoothed out. Really nice grip in dry and rain, snow is adverage. Vary happy with the tire. Actually have a set on a '99 Miata and about 3,000 on them and they are running really smooth.

These were on the car when I got it. They're fine dry, decent in rain or snow. I got where I was going in the snow, and that's saying something in this car. Definitely not winter tires though. Biggest downside is all 4 tires are cupping in the outer blocks despite never having gone low and very low mileage on the car. This is giving off a little noise but not bad.

I've had these tires for just about 10k miles,the dry grip it's very good, I've never lost traction even while driving spirited. I use them about 12 times a year in light to moderate snow 0-6 inches or so, and they hold up pretty well, but when driving in rain, they are somewhat questionable at times, might not be the best tire if it rains a lot where you live, but it's perfect for southern California.

This tire is truly a GREAT Tire. Have never owned a Cooper Tire, but will definitely buy this tire again, especially for the price. I have driven nearly 700 miles and the tires still have the "Nobbies" on the tread side. I am expecting this tire to last a while. Definitely worth buying.

I have never owned Cooper tires but these came on the car when I bought it. A lot more road noise than previous tires I've used. Handling is fairly good when roads dry but almost impossible to drive "spirited" when it has rained or is raining because all they do is spin. Wouldn't be a bad tire if you live somewhere where it rarely rains.

Pros: Inexpensive, looks great, good tread wear, decent dry handling. Cons: Scary in the rain, absolutely worthless in the snow, starts out reasonably quiet but quickly turns obnoxious. First of all, I can't be too hard on Cooper because they're quick to point out that this tires' "racer look" is it's strongest selling point. Basically what you're getting here is a show tire. Ignore it's 'all season' designation. It's good enough for cruising around in the summer, but it can't handle any kind of weather. These tires also become very slick in the cold, even if the roads are dry. I will say they are holding up very well though given my driving style and my car's very front biased weight distribution.

I've had these on my car for a while now and honestly, I don't like them. Dry grip is good, but nothing exceptional. Wet grip is poor but not horrible. Cornering is just OK, at best. Responsiveness is pretty good, but I've had much better. They are reasonably comfortable. They are wearing VERY good. The biggest negative though is they are LOUD LOUD LOUD! Obnoxiously loud. Part of this is Ford's wonderful rear alignment specs on a Focus causes tires to cup up and wear. Once the cupping set in, these things roar like a full on Mud tire; their awful. They weren't too quiet when they were new so I don't think they would have ever been a quiet tire. Between the roaring noise, the putrid wet grip and overall "mediocrity" of these tires I would not buy again. There are just FAR better options out there.

I bought these thinking I got at least a Z-rated tire. (Trusting the installer knew what he was doing). Nothing against Cooper tires, but these are scary to drive on wet roads. It would seem like I was on ice trying to pull away from a traffic light. I don't do burnouts, on purpose anyways, but these tires would not hook up on aggressive acceleration when the road was even dry. Wrong tire for the car I suppose, but the wet road lack of traction is inexcusable. I actually would slow down to speeds as if I was driving on snow. That's how bad my confidence level was when the road was wet. I've had Fierce, Bf Goodrich KDW2 (too noisy, but awesome handling) and Goodyear Gatorbacks, these were the least handling.

I have had Cooper Tires before and nothing but trouble with them and not very good representation. These tires do handle fairly well on dry,wet pavement, however they are noisey, lousy in any sort of snow and have the same problem that the other coopers had, will not hold air. I have had these tires mounted and remounted and still will not keep air for very long. Do not know what flaws Cooper has in their tires, but I personally won't buy any of their tires again.

OK in the dry, bad in the snow and the cold (I literally took a chunk out of one tire on a curb when it was about 15 degrees), and absolutely terrible in terms of road noise - particularly on the highway. Completely inadequate for the power I'm putting down in a straight line (about 290whp) even though they have plenty of grip left. They came on the car when I bought it and I will be replacing them with something more capable.

The tires started out alright. Good on dry, not so good on wet, and useless in snow. They were never a quiet tire from the get go. Now they are worn a bit and sooooo bad that I literally have to drive my car with the stereo volume almost maxed out to drown the noise that they make on the highway. The Zeon is an awful, awful tire. You dont spend alot for them but you definitely get what you pay for with them. And always troubles with them losing air. Would not recommend to my worst enemy. Spend the extra money find something better!

CAUTION / DANGEROUS These are the worst tires I have ever owned. On dry pavement on a quick start you spin; on wet pavement you spin, and when raining you do aquaplaning. Plus lets not forget the noise. I cannot believe this, walmart tires are better than this. I even pushed them a little bit and ouch very dangerous tires. DO NOT BUY serious I am very honest on what I am saying.
