I decided to give these tires a try because of the promotional rebate from Cooper. This is a good value touring tire. It has good traction in all weather conditions and long tread life at a fairly low cost. Despite the marketing claim that these tires have low resistance and good fuel economy, I have noticed a slight decrease in fuel economy since replacing my set of worn out Pirelli P4 with the Cooper CS5. If I had to purchase another set of new tires now, even if Cooper's rebate was still in effect, I would go with the new Pirelli P4S.
i bought a set of 4 just two years ago and only used during summer. Just the other day while taking my child to a surprise my inside wall blew. I looked this up and in fact this is a major issue do not buy.
