New Tires... Cooper Zeon RS3-A

Postby goob_os101 » Wed Jul 01, 2015 7:56 pm

New tires have arrived!

I have chosen to go with Cooper Zeon RS3-A in a 225/50/16 on RS Six Spoke wheels

After rebates the total cost was only $257 shipped. I hope to get more then 20,000 miles I got with the General Gmax AS03s. I hope the wider size and non-directional design helps.

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

Interested to hear how much noise they generate. Looks like blockey tread.

Initial review:
They ride super smooth
Cornering is effortless
Tons of grip
They eat up the rough roads.

Sadly, I think I liked the dark silver/gun metal better than the black.

I was digging it too, but the previous owner did a horrible paint job and wear the weights were on the outside lip there was no piant. I may hit them with some Dupli-Color Custom Wrap Matte Graphite

Can't say enough about theses tires. They handle awesome in all conditions.

I have been plowing through the backstreets the past few days. I got hung up once but was still able to get out.

These Cooper RS3 A's are pretty good in the snow

Sadly, they don't look like good RallyX tires, otherwise I'd be all over them!

How's the Cooper Zeons now? We are looking at Cooper, Michelin or Toyo tires on the next change. Seen mixed reviews but mostly positive with Cooper and Michelin, and I personally like the Open Country AT II on our truck.
