The RS3-A™ is the latest Ultra High Performance all-season tire within the Cooper performance family. This all-season performance tire provides the driver with a dynamic handling and inspires confidence and control.
Advanced Technology Mold Profile. Provides for a square tread footprint which means more tread-to-road contact. Asymmetric Design. Allows for tread pattern tuning. This design allows for cross-rotation which reduces heal-toe wear, promotes even wear, less noise and increased overall read life. More rubber on the outboard tread pattern equals exceptional dry handling and traction. The large outside shoulder and intermediate tread elements increase handling, stability control and ultimate cornering ability. The offset shoulder-to-intermediate grooves and large intermediate tread elements are joined together for stable cornering and noise reduction. Laterally oriented shoulder grooves, uniform element geometry and chamfered edges resist irregular or rapid tread wear. The continuous, solid rib on the outside of the center row of tread elements increases steering response. The inboard tread pattern is optimized for wet and light snow conditions. Two, wide circumferential grooves channel water away from the tire for hydroplane resistance. Even wear is achieved by the laterally oriented shoulder grooves and uniform elements. Winter traction performance is aided by the technical sweeping elliptical groove. 3-D Micro-Gauge Siping. Increases tread element stability, improves handling and tire control while reducing the possibility of stone retention. 3-D dimple sipes with interlocking geometry provide more sipe depth without sacrificing tread element stability. The 3-D dimple sipes are used in the center, intermediate and shoulder elements and provide increased length and more road biting edges as the pattern wears for maximum wet and light snow traction. Silica Formulated Tread Compound. Designed for exceptional all-season driving performance.
Switched from Michelin Primacy mxm4 to these cooper rs3-a tires, and noticed an incredible difference. Cornering is night and day, especially at higher speeds. The coopers grip the road much better with more control and less body roll. Also, in wet conditions my Michelin would often spin taking off from a stop, where as coopers have excellent wet traction and have not once broke loose on me (even after taking off harder in an attempt to spin them they would not break loose). As for ride quality, they are quite and handle bumps well for an ultra high performance tire. Overall they have pleasantly surprised as a great tire, especially for the money and I am glad I purchased them. If anyone is looking to buy these tires I would highly recommend them, and also recommend that you check coopertire.com after you purchase them. There you can find mail in rebate offer entries that are often run with rebates of $50 to $70 for the zeon rs3 series tires.

This is my second set of these tires. The first set last me almost 50,000 miles and still had tread left but I decided to replace them. Incredible handling in wet weather conditions in Florida. Have also driven on these in the mountains during the winter time.
