Cooper Zeon CS6 offers up to 12% longer tread life

Tuesday 2 June 2009

 

 Cooper Tire is offering more durability and choice than ever before with its newest ultra-high performance tyre, the Cooper Zeon CS6.

Replacing the Cooper Zeon XTC V and W-rated sizes, the CS6 features a new silica tread compound which, thanks to the latest in computer-aided design technology, offers enhanced grip in wet weather braking and handling situations, but also features up to 12% longer tread wear than the XTC.

The CS6 will be available in sizes ranging from 15 to 18 inch rim diameters, and more high-speed ratings than its predecessor, including V, W and Y ratings.

The CS6’s new up-rated tyre construction means the CS6 is lighter than its predecessor, and features lower rolling resistance, which offers energy and money saving benefits to consumers.

“The Cooper Zeon XTC has been a popular element of our high-performance range since it was introduced in 2005,” said Cooper Tire Europe managing director, Julian Baldwin.

“We are constantly working to continuously improve our products, and with the latest technology from our European Technology Centre, we’re able to do just that with the CS6.

“This is a tyre that not only features enhanced handling, but also a longer-lasting tread that means customers won’t have to think about spending money on replacement tyres for that bit longer – a key bonus point in the current economic climate.”

The CS6’s asymmetric ‘rib’ tread pattern delivers balanced wear, excellent water-clearing properties and has been designed to run with as little noise as possible, increasing the comfort for the driver.

 

With three quarters of new cars rolling off the production line with alloy wheels, the CS6 also benefits from rim flange protectors, which help protect alloys against expensive kerb damage.

The Cooper Zeon CS6 is available in 38 sizes, from 15-inch to 18-inch diameters. Selected run-flat sizes are also being prepared and will be available in the coming months.
