Fuel economy and longevity

Successor to the CS2, Cooper’s new summer tyre, the CS7, has been developed for small and mid-size passenger cars. With this latest generation tyre, the American manufacturer has combined its expertise with new technologies.

Designed to deliver better fuel economy than its predecessor, the CS7 features a brand new tread pattern. Thanks to this pattern and optimised tread depth, the tyre distributes load evenly, lowering rolling resistance. According to Cooper, the new tyre has a larger footprint that provides mores grip and prevents uneven wear.

The tyre maker also promises improved lateral grip, traction and braking performance, thanks to the CS7’s high silica compound, with circumferential and lateral grooves.

Driving on the quiet!

Where Cooper’s tyre is ahead of the curve is in its quietness on the road. The American tyre manufacturer has designed “noise damping nodes” in the tread grooves to significantly reduce vibrations produced by the tyre’s contact with the road. Result on the European tyre label: the tyre’s exterior noise was measured at 68dB, making it one of the best in this category. The CS7 also obtained a B rating for wet grip in all available sizes, and B to E ratings for rolling resistance, depending on the size.


Cooper’s CS7 summer tyre is already available in 30 sizes for 14 to15-inch rims with T and H speed ratings.
