The coopers are rated t, 118 mph,BFG rated s,112 mph
BF Goodrich is part of the Michelin family if remember right.Coopers seem to have a tendency for the tire rubber to get harder with time.I still think it comes down to preference for most people & what tire they have had the best luck with.
I have noticed that about the aged Coopers getting harder. Now they leave hollow black marks.
I have had 6-7 sets of Coopers (on all my vehicles). I've experienced premature dry cracking on all of them, plus after a couple of years, they get hard and spin very easily in the wet. My buddy owns a tire shop and specializes in Coopers, hence all the sets of Coopers. But after they got bought out last summer by a foreign company in India, I won't be buying any more. Bought two sets of Goodyear Integrity tires for the daily drivers. Love them AND they were cheaper. Did you check Mickey Thompson S/T tires? That line of tires is like the Cobras and T/As.
^^FYI last I read that buyout never happened.
Oh, that's good then. Still, they're making more of their tires in China...I don't like that at all.
I am a diehard BFG Radial T/A guy, never had a problem with them on at least a dozen of my cars over the years.
I've run bfgs coopers and the micky t's. And the m/t are the best handling, softest compound of the tree. But also last the shortest. But no tires last very long on the Camaro!
That might not be too bad . I think most guys age most tires out before they wear them out.
My .02 When was the last time Cooper was a sponsor at any show you have been to? BFG is every where. Support the sponsors when you can.
