Cooper Trendsetter SE Tire Review & Rating

For drivers needing a basic all-season tire, the Trendsetter SE from Cooper is a budget-friendly option. Developed for drivers of older model coupes, sedans and minivans, the Trendsetter fills the need for those requiring a 70-75 series tire.

The all-season dual layer tread compound and asymmetric tread pattern provide enhanced traction and handling on dry road surfaces. The dual layer also increases durability and provides a lower rolling resistance, which results in increased fuel mileage.

Cooper Trendsetter SE Tire Review

Squared tread elements add more grip and bite on wet or snow covered roads. It increases hydroplane resistance and enhances traction in the snow, slush or ice.

Cooper uses a computer designed variable pitch tread sequence to reduce road noise and create a better overall ride comfort that makes driving more enjoyable at highway speeds. Whitewalls are available in selected sizes, and Cooper includes a 40,000 mile treadlife guarantee on this model.


  • Dry traction and handling are good  
  • Tire rides comfortably and without a lot of road noise  
  • Treadlife is above average  
  • Budget friendly price  


  • Would like to see a little better wet traction  

Overall Thoughts

The Trendsetter is a nice option in tires for older vehicles, or for that matter anyone looking for a cheap all-season tire. Traction and handling are predictable, and the tire rides comfortably for an all-season design. Wet surface traction could be improved, but it is nothing that would prevent us from buying this tire.

Overall, this is a solid low-cost option in a new tire from a trusted name brand.
