    Cooper Zeon RS3-S Ultra High Performance Tire Review


    The name Cooper might not bring up mental pictures of high-speed racing like Formula One or NASCAR, but the company certainly knows what it’s doing when it comes to a high-performance street tire.

    Providing tires for racing series throughout the world, like the British Formula 3, and the US F2000 racing series, Cooper has experience making tires that stick. They also have some experience torturing tires, providing rubber to a number of Formula D drifting teams.

    With that in mind, we set out to test Cooper’s new Zeon RS3-S ultra-high performance summer tire on a car down for its drift-ability, the Scion FR-S.
    Read AutoGuide.com's Cooper Tires Zeon RS3-S Review and see how much of a difference Cooper's UHP Summer Tire made on the Scion FR-S.

    When my factory tires bit the dust, I picked up a set of Bridgestone Potenza RE-11A's from Costco. The handling is AMAZING, even in the wet, but I miss the ability to drift so easily. That said, it feels like a slot car. Makes my 160 mile daily round trip commute on the twisties of Kentucky a blast.

    Also, I was hyper-miling and getting between 38-40 mpg with the six speed manual. With the new tires it dropped a bit.
