Lots of advice from both sides of the spectrum regarding Cooper tires. Cooper tires (and Goodyear for that matter) have a lot of complaints regarding tread separation after the tires hit a certain age, generally the 7 year mark. I have personally seen this myself.
My first question is ......where were they made, China?. Its molded in the side of the casing somewhere unless it’s made in the US. In my opinion all tires today are all worse than their ancestors were 30-40 years ago though tires out of China ( even the big names ) are seemingly scraping the bottom of the barrel.
