I've had Cooper tire before...good tire at a decent price. Guess you gotta diversify these days

I've used Coopers for years mostly on trailer with 5.2k and 6k axles. Cooper like other USA tire makers has many lines of P/LT/AT/MS/HT tires so having issue with one line of any brand tire doesn't mean all lines within that brand are bad.
For years Coopers commercial grade in a 16" LT E HT was the SRM II. Good for 40k-60k on my trailers. These were discontinued several years back and now Cooper's newest commercial grade is a Discoverer HT 3 in the same size/load range all season tread.....still get the same miles and same trouble free service.

I’ve got a set of Cooper Cobra G/Ts on a classic car. Great tires and they have a good following. I hope they continue to make them. Had Goodyear Eagle GTs and Eagle GT+4s years ago but have not followed Goodyear’s offerings lately.

I liked the SRM II for trailers too. Worked well on my rigs for the front steer axel. Usually went with a more traction oriented for rears.

Sorry to see that one go away.

Been happy with the AT3 on my C2500 that the engine blew on........

The SRA on new rig did ok in snow yesterday skiing with my sons for there B-day at Baker.

I hate that, I really like the 2 sets I’ve had on my truck, and the set on my Jeep. Felt like I was supporting the little guy and American made.

Hopefully they will stay good quality.

I have long questioned some of the GY lines like Wrangler that serve top to bottom and defeating the marketing. Hopefully GY will figure out to keep their top line separate and use the Cooper name for mid line branding/marketing. May still need a low priced value line.
