Cooper Zeon RS3-A
The latest all-season, ultra-high performance tire offered by Cooper is the RS3-A, a dynamically performing tire equipped with a square tread footprint that gives drivers exceptional tire-to-road security in all types of extreme weather.
The RS3-A provides superior advantages over similar tires, including:
Asymmetrical design that facilitates tread pattern tuning and cross-rotation and enhances even wear while reducing heel-to-toe wear.
Exceptional traction and dry handling is dramatically improved by the placement of additional rubber on the outboard tread pattern.
Rapid and/or irregular tread wear is minimized by chamfered edges and laterally oriented grooves in the tire's shoulder.
The Cooper RS3-A is optimized for wet conditions (including snow and light ice) with specialized, inboard tread patterns and circumferential, wide grooves capable of channeling water to prevent hydroplaning.
T3-D Micro-Gauge Siping not only improves tire control but also reduces the risk of stone retention, which can lead to uneven wear and puncture.
Year around driving performance remains reliably excellent due to the tire's silica formulated compound used to make tread.
Singular lightweight construction reduces unsprung weight, a component essential to handling and control prowess while improving sidewall stiffness. Enhanced sidewall stiffness prevents tires from rolling onto their shoulders when cornering hard or abruptly. This rolling also limits the size of contact patches which provokes uneven wear.
Customers purchasing the Zeon RS3-A have reported noting immediately how much smoother and quieter their vehicle rides when equipped with these tires. Smoothness and noise reduction stems from the intermediate grooves to offset shoulder design as well as the more expansive tread elements incorporated in the tires. Two steel belts located inside the tread are wrapped spirally with nylon to strengthen and stabilize at higher speeds. In addition, all RS3-As made by Cooper are backed by a 40,000 mile tread warranty.
The Cooper Tire & Rubber Company also recommends rotating tires every 5000 to 8000 miles to maintain even tread and integrity and extend the life of your tires. Even high quality tires like the Cooper Zeon RS3-A require minimal maintenance such as rotating and checking air pressure.
