I have had these tires for 50,000 miles now and have 5/32 and 6/32 tread left. I have complained of noise on these tires from when I first got them. I have been having a lot of trouble with these slipping on wet surfaces for quite a while now. When I am at a dead stop and go to start up, my tires spin and I don't go anywhere. It is very frustrating and I am feeling very unsafe. I am afraid someone will rear end me as they start up and I don't and that they will not stop me someday. Even though I have tread left on them, I am looking for new tires. I don't feel safe with these tires anymore! No more Cooper Tires for me!!
These replaced the OEM Michelin Energy MXV4's on my car that were extremely noisy and unusable by 50k miles. For the first 30k miles or so these CS4's were quiet and smooth. I did experience the common problem where each tire began slowly leaking around the rim. My tire dealer fixed these leaks for free so it was only a minor inconvenience on my part. They said the leaks were due to corrosion that formed between the tire and the rim.
Since 30k the tires have been becoming noisier and a rougher ride. Right now I'm at 54k and they are incredibly noisy and not staying in balance. Tread wear seems consistent and had not hit the wear bars yet but I had my tires rotated every 10k miles. I was hoping to get past 60k miles with these but I'm getting tired of the noise and may replace them soon.
Overall they have been an ok tire... I will probably buy something different for my next set.
Don't understand why this is called a snow tire? I only rated them as a "1" because I couldn't submit the review with a "0". Thankfully it has only snowed a couple times since I had these installed. But even with 5 people in the car and driving very slowly - the car slides all over when trying to stop on snowy roads. Would definitely NOT recommend these tires for snow. Wish I had read the reviews before purchasing. I would probably be better off with my regular all-season tires in snow.
My Camry came with these tires. 1st winter we had very little snow.
Last winter near record snowfall.
These tires are called "all season" but that must be in Florida. I ended up spending $700 for snow tires. Don't get me wrong, love the ride and quite they give. Just miserable in snow even with front wheel drive.
Please dont buy for camry or sedan Fk452 245 35 20 worth tire ever ....well alignment and balance and too much shaking steering wheel and noise .... at 10000 miles still shaking ..its very uncomfortable ..just dont get it ..buy expensive ones
I have a heavy foot, and the tires on my Camry can barely handle my driving. I have the General Altimax RT. Before the Camry I had an '03 Chrysler Concorde that had the Good Year Assurance triple-tread. The Good Years didn't squeal when I started going from the stop light. The General tires won't corner even in a light rain I've slid into oncoming traffic. I couldn't say how many times I've slid to a stop last winter. I do NOT recommend the General Altimax RT.
I cannot emphasize enough how impressed I am with these tires. I have done a huge amount of snow driving this winter and they have performed perfectly. It should be noted that I do have a 6spd manual Camry, giving me greater control, but I have never lost traction once. Just this weekend I drove over the Ten sleep Pass in Wyoming, which was completely covered in snow and they dominated.
