Just picked up a set of Cooper's and coming from a cheaper winter tire and to season change into dry summer, I really noticed a difference in handling and grip threshold on these tires. They are almost silent down the road. I heard more car noise (squeaks, bumps vibration) then tire noise. Very impressed. Can't wait to see how well the tread wear is. So far it's been excellent. For the price, you honestly can't go wrong. Strongly suggest trying out the grand touring of the ultra if you're more of a performance driver!
I was very disappointed by these fr 380 tires. Started to cup after 20,000 miles so bad that I thought the wheel bearings were going bad. Took to my mechanic who stated that he has seen many frantic car owners bring their cars in with these tires thinking that they have serious problems. I would pass on any Firestone Brand tire, besides, they always want to perfrom repairs that are not really needed. Told me that I needed pads, caliphers, and disks 40,000 miles ago on my Camry. Still going strong.
