Im running Zeon RS3A's, my first set of Coopers. Ive run pielli p7's and Michelin's and so far they are my favorite! Great in wet or dry, but could be that they are my 1st so called performance tire AA traction rating.

Discoverer H/T's on my 2010 Ranger, quiet, smooth, same balance job with 16K miles on them, rotated twice. Haven't had them in snow yet. If not good in snow, then Cooper Discoverer M+S LT235/75r15 will go on. I know they work.

Second set of A/T3's on my ex's Sport Trac. They've been great tires, even on a truck like an Explorer that loves to eat front tires.

Currently using Cooper Zeon RS3-A all season tire on my Acura CSX, size is 215/45/r17. This was my first mid-range tire brand purchase. I used to buy top tier brands in the past.

Overall, I am happy with them. Dry grip is great, wet grip is good. I put about 5k miles in 4 months and then switched to winter tires. They are noisier than my winter tires though (Continental Wintercontact SI), especially over 50+ mph or highway speeds. I can't say they are track worthy, as they are technically "all season" tires, but definitely great option if you are looking for good dry traction on the street.

I'd get Coopers if they are 25-30% or more cheaper than top tier competitors, like Michelin, Continental, Bridgestone, Pirelli etc.

Have a set of Cooper Discoverer H/T's on the Jeep. Snow traction I feel is going to be a real issue. They lost traction on a small amount of snow up our small incline driveway. They also flat spot real easy; the truck sits about a week or so at the time.

My Cooper Discoverer HTPs that I purchased from Discount Tire for a Tacoma are wearing and riding great. Just had them rotated and balanced at DT and tire counter guy noted they looked real good. Got an excellent deal too, DT store matched DT @ebay $100 off $400 and Cooper rebate on top of that. Very satisfied with the Coopers. And fwiw, made in the US.

I don't do any off roading either.

Cooper RS3A on my 2013 Mustang GT and quite satisfied with them. Much better dry grip then the strictly summer Perellis that came stock and much better in the rain not to mention they cost much less then most high performance tires.

According to several Mustang forums the Cooper RS3S sticky summer high performance tire is a real good tire and well worth the $.

I also have Cooper Discover AT3's new in October of this year and so far this is by far the best AT tire I have ever had. They are reasonably quiet great in the rain fantastic in torrential rain extremely hydroplane resistant and the last few weeks I was able to try them in the snow both deep snow and slush and for a tire that does not carry a sever snow rating they really have great snow traction much better then I expected.

Cooper makes a great tire, you can consider Mastercraft which is also made by Cooper. I've had the Cooper AT3's, CS5 and CS3's, all were great. I just put a set of 80,000 mile Mastercraft LSR grand touring tires on the Wifes Santa Fe.

Currently running 2 sets and really like them. Was a busy Sept/Oct for me as I had to buy 2 new sets of tires.

Zeon RS3-G1 on the Taurus SHO. I think I'm up to about 3 or 4k on them now. FANTASTIC tire. Insane grip, wet or dry and while I can't speak for snow yet I bet they will be fine. Only downside is they seem to flatspot easily buy I remember the previous Michelins doing the same when new. Would not hesitate to buy them again.

Discoverer AT3 on the F150. Same deal - I think up to 2k on them now. Great tire. Quiet and very good traction. Did have a chance to try them in the snow yesterday and they performed wonderfully. Again would not hesitate to recommend.
