I only ever owned one set of Coopers and won’t ever own another. Always rode and wore like they were about 4 oz. out of balance. Can’t beat a Firestone Transforce AT in my book.

Got two pickups and a car all with Coopers on them, none of them are on the list though.
I've worn out quite a few sets of coopers, always had good luck with them.
not real excited about Goodyear buying them out.
