checo1971I'd Like to know about the quality of Cooper tires, I'm gonna buy a set of it but I Do'nt know anything about it please tell me how are they.
peteMy father use to swear by the Cooper tire. Was always his first choice. He never drove to the limits of the car and he always purchased touring tires. I heard Cooper tire company was having a problem with quality control because Cooper was pushing production to hard. The quality control problem was reported about a year ago. Situation probably has improved by now.
ToddBCooper Tire's problems seem to be ongoing.

The website of a pending class-action lawsuite against Cooper:

A consumer's group opposing the settlement of the above lawsuit:

The section here about Cooper begins at "Not just a Firestone problem":

While Cooper tires are ranked decently by dealers in Tire Review's 2001 tire study (specifically the "Product Quality" section), other tires are rated better. Tire Review's 2001 study is here: also has information about defective Cooper tires, and is a very informative site about tire failures in general.

An interesting exercise is to type a tire manufacturer's name into the Google search engine, followed by the word "lawsuit". I recently did some research to find replacement tires, and this Google technique proved to be very enlightening.
