Cooper CS5 Grand Touring Tire Review & Rating

Built for today’s passenger cars, minivans, SUV’s and crossovers, the CS5 Grand Touring tires from Cooper are designed to provide superior performance for everyday driving.

Featuring a next generation silica tread compound that aims to deliver performance across all types of road conditions, Cooper’s new technology has given the CS5 four times as much silica as other tires. This in turn results in reduced braking distances, increased acceleration, lower fuel usage and better overall traction.

Cooper CS5 Grand Touring Review

An advanced 5-rib asymmetric tread pattern reduces uneven treadwear and makes it easy to rotate the tires from side to side.

The tires also come with 3D micro gauge grooves which allow the tire to interlock and therefore provide added stability on the highway. Of course this also means you’ll find better performance on wet or snow covered road surfaces, something this tire does quite well.

The Cooper CS5 Grand Touring tires are available in a wide range of 15 to 18 inch sizes and come with a nice 80,000 mile tread wear warranty.

Pros

  • Next generation tire technology delivers excellent all-season traction   
  • Responsive steering and control   
  • Smooth and comfortable ride   
  • 80K mile tread warranty   

Cons

  • None that really stand out   

Overall Thoughts

Cooper has a long history of providing quality tires and their new CS5 Grand Touring continues in this line. With a variety of new technology on board, this new model ranks high in the touring all-season class.

With an enhanced silica design, 3D micro gauge grooves and an asymmetric tread, these tires grip wet and dry roads brilliantly. Traction and braking in light to moderate snow, as well as slush and softer ice, is more than capable. It’s only heavy snow that you begin to see problems, but that’s the case with most every all-season tire.

The ride is very comfortable and road noise is nearly non-existent. Treadlife has proven to be very good and Cooper adds in an excellent warranty.

Overall, for coupe, sedan, minivan and crossover owners, the CS5 Grand Touring is a solid choice. We rank it in the top half of this class along with tires like the Continental PureContact and Michelin Premier A/S among others.

How does the Cooper CS5 Grand touring compare to the Firestone LE2 for a Subaru Outback.
