Cooper unveils new Zeon all-season passenger tires

Cooper Tire has unveiled its new all-season passenger tire for high performance vehicles, the Zeon RS3-G1.

It features a sleek race-inspired sidewall and is designed with a focus on grip, stability and durability.

Handles in wet, dry and even light snow

Cooper claims whether drivers are on dry or wet pavement, or even in light snow conditions, the Cooper Zeon RS3-G1 “is truly an all-season tire with performance worthy of the high performance tire category”.

“The tire has been designed with more rubber on the outside shoulder and intermediate rib to grip and provide stability during cornering maneuvers and to reduce tire noise,” the manufacturer said.

“The Cooper Zeon RS3-G1 also provides longer-lasting biting edges due to its 3D full-depth sipes, which go deep into the tread elements. The sipes help the tire tread blocks maintain a stable shape during acceleration, braking and cornering. The full-depth aspect of the sipes means that even when the tire is half-worn, there are still sipes to provide biting edges for consistent performance.”

A tire that redefines

Cooper’s director of product management for North America, Scott Jamieson, also talked up “cutting edge technology” behind the RS3-G1.

“We say this new tire gives high performance a ‘gut check’ because it redefines what it means to participate in that category at a higher level,” he said.

“The RS3-G1 ushers in a new era for Cooper in terms of delivering breakthrough product that among other critical benefits, offers incredible grip, holding the road at up to 1g in tight corners with its wide, flat tread arc that creates a stable, square footprint on the road.”

Wear Square tread indicator

The tire also features Cooper’s trademarked Wear Square indicator, which allows drivers to quickly and easily see how much tread-life the tire has left. Built into the tread design, it features the outline of a square located at three points of reference on the center rib of the tire. As the tire wears, the Wear Square transitions among five stages, beginning with a full square on new tires and transforming into an exclamation mark when the tread reaches 2/32s of an inch, indicating it is time to replace the tire. The Wear Square can also signal uneven tire wear and possible wheel alignment issues.
