Cooper Cobra Radial GT Tire Review & Rating

When it comes to outfitting your muscle car or truck, the Cobra Radial G/T from Cooper Tires is a popular choice. Just like the BFGoodrich Radial T/A, the Cobra GT sports all-season performance and classic raised white letters that are still as popular today as they were in the 60’s and 70’s.

The tire design features an aggressive tread pattern and a flat tread profile that enhances the overall footprint shape. The result is improved handling and more even tread wear.

Ride quality is enhanced due to the two steel belts inside the tread. It also provides added durability and better stability at higher speeds. Cooper warrants the Cobra for 50,000 miles.


  • Classic muscle look and feel   
  • Good dry surface traction and handling   
  • Tires ride comfortably   
  • 50,000 mile tread warranty   


  • Wet traction could be improved
  • Winter handling

Overall Thoughts

Just as the Radial T/A from BFG, the Cobra G/T is designed to be more about looks than than performance. Sure, you’ll find good dry grip and traction, but that is not really why most car and truck owners purchase this tire. It’s for the classic look and feel from the muscle car era that this tire provides, as well as the raised white letters. The Cobra is another example of why we love our muscle cars.

  1. I JUST BOUGHT A SET of cobra’s .
    i dont plan on mounting them till next spring or so ,
    they are in my barn loft covered up with vasaline on the bead, to keep it soft,
    Was hoping for Dean Stingers Or better Kelly Charger ss, tires.
    Their is a market for glass belted tires on some hybrid./elec cars, If you do it right ,
    they weigh 1/3 less than the steel case. but wont hold up to big engine power.
    It was important for me to find a set made this year . a 5 yr old tire IS Okay . But for half the price.
    my set was made the 18th week of this year 2020.
