Put new tires on the Volvo XC90 today. Rebates and all. Good deal for me.
Took off some Hankooks that were on for 10 years. I know I know should have been taken off years ago .Still had plenty of tread but since the car isn't driven to much (wife has medical issues ) its become the go to the Doctors car , and visiting the grandkids .

Its amazing how good you think the tires that you took off were great until you drive with new tires.

The Cooper CS4's I loved gave way to the CS5.
ERGO, I'm assuming the CSUltra Touring is what the CS5 morphed into.
Whatever they call them at the time, a set of these is going on my V70.

Still running a set of CS4's for my winter tires over my MXV4's which didn't do well in the snow/ice. I wasn't going to use the CS4's for winter but, I have them so, I'm using them. Acutally used them for 2 summers on another car.

I was looking at a set of CS3's but haven't been able to find any reviews on them. Have had good amount of experience with Cooper truck/industrial tires, but not much with the passenger variety.

CS3 pretty much replaced the CS4.
But they are not advertised a lot...
They seem to have better winter capability than CS5.
Also they usually are cheaper than CS5.
I think user SatinSilver posted a link at some point about pro-reviews.

The reviews that I was able to find didn't show really positive results over the long run. However when the CS3 are new, owners seem to like'em OK but then...

My BIL put the CS3's on his BMW 328xi(205-55-16) and wore them out quickly.

The CS3 replaces the GLS. It probably has a shorter tread life since the rubber is softer. Same reason winter tires don't last as long. They do have a 65k tread warranty. Below is a review and they do make the top ten list for best all season tires for winter driving.

https://tirereviewsandmore.com/top-10-passenger-car-all-season-tires-for-winter-driving/



In fairness the CS5 Grand Touring makes the list of top ten all season tires. But this is a different tire than the Ultra Touring which is kind of confusing.

And the Ultra review here.
