Any comments pro/con on the Cooper Zeon Rs3-S tires? I'm considering getting a set of 275/35-20 for a set of 20x9.5 wheels for my 11 GT. Any input would greatly appreciated.
I too am looking to get these for my gt. all the research I've done online an YouTube vids show they are very good performing tires but I think the tread warranty or whatever it is is only for 20k, but I could have misread it.
I have a 2013 RS3. My stock tires are Cooper Zeon RS-3.. The DOT code is UP5Y CPP 3711 Are they putting a different tire on the 2014 Roush RS3. Would someone with a 2014 look at their tire and tell me if it is Cooper Zeon RS-3 tire or is it now delivered with a Cooper Zeon RS-3-S tire. I would be interested to know the difference between the regular RS-3 and the RS-3-S tire
I called Cooper tire and talked to Doug. He does some of the testing for their performance tires. I was mainly interested in the difference between the 2013 RS-3 and the 2014 RS-3-S tires. He said the two tires are very much the same with a few tweaks here and there. He compared the two tires to the I-phone 4-S and 5-S and said that it is personal preference which one is best. He said they also added the RS-3-A for a great all weather tire.
I have the RS3-S's and they don't hook up as well as i hoped. I think they are more designed for handling compared with Street/Strip applications. I will be looking for something stickier since i'm not autocrossing my car.
So I just put a set of these Cooper Zeon RS3-S tires in 275/35-20 along with a set of 20" Roush wheels on my 2014 GT/CS. Coming away from from my factory 19" Pirelli P Zero all seasons the first thing I noticed right away was a louder "rushing air" sound from the tires heard inside the car as I drove. It's not that typical tire hum sound, but sounds just like air rushing past the car. They do handle a ton better however. Anybody notice the same type of sound with the Coopers?
