I am looking at Cooper CS5 or maybe Pirelli P4 4 seasons plus, am I missing anything else good in this price range?

I run General RT43's on both my Camry's. Supposedly they have the edge in snow--not a snow tire, but slightly better in snow than CS5's. At least when new!

I don't think they always wear the most even, but I seem to get 35-40k, and they do ride pretty good. I stick with them rather than research time and again, just seem good enough. I also try to buy during sales time, that helps bring the price down.

The General RT-43 performed very well on my wife’s Volvo XC. An excellent tire value.

Have RT43s on a late model Civic and CS5s on an older Camry.

Both have proven excellent.

Skip the CS5 if you want some decent winter traction. The Cooper CS3 will have much better traction. The Pirelli should be an all around better tire but the CS3 is no slouch.

I'm running CS5's on my summer wheels on my Malibu (2553520) and they are great on wet and dry roads. My o.e tires are (2156016) im running continental tru contacts. Thoes are amazing in the wet and snow. U can do 70+ in the rain/snow and you would think your on dry pavement.

The Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring with a V speed rating would be the tire for your Camry. I had a set of RT43s on an ‘06 Tucson. They were one of the worst tires I’ve ever had. I had them for two months and got the dealer to exchange them for a set of CooperCS3. General joined Firestone on my never buy list.

+ 1. Running the same tire on my Moms Volvo V70. Excellent tire at a reasonable price.

FYI: CS5s are made in the US if that factors into your purchases.

I have 2 full sets on (2) cars and have no reason to look elsewhere. They are a great smooth tire.

Yokohama makes high quality, low cost tires.

If your daily commute is longer than 20 minutes, there are some good recommendations in the “Comfy tires” thread.

I have the pirelli p4 all season plus on the elantra. i think there may be a slight loss of mpg, but they wear like iron. I'm happy with them.

What size do you need? smile

Is winter/snow performance an important factor? Do you have separate winter tires?
