The Cooper Zeon RS3-S tire is an ultra high performance summer tire with best-in-class dry and wet handling. It has a classic sport tire look. The Cooper Zeon RS3-S tire has tire rubber compounds that are specially formulated for grip at high speeds, but with additional heat dispersion capabilities. Excess heat can cause accelerated tread wear rates and pre-mature tire failure, so the heat dispersion is an important tire feature. Most of the tire line is made in the USA, and for domestically made UHP tires, these tires are well priced. This makes it an excellent value for budget conscious drivers who love spirited driving, and want to get the most out of their sports car.
