Re: Alternative to Goodyear Eagles??
After a bit of hoo-har ended up with a brand called Cooper??
Supposed to be an American firm linked with Avon, the brand I was told the tyre was.
Anyway pleased to report it has transformed the road noise levels.
I'm impressed, really made a difference and a good price too.
I had Cooper Cobras a few years back on my 155 - far too hard, nice & lairy
After the fronts had been killed by track rod end failure (the infamous saga for quick-rack v6's
) the garage put BFGoodrich tyres on the front & the grip from them was good, and balanced the lairy backend with the v6 uundersteer to give a great balance - pure luck, and even more fun
I was also told that Cooper was Avon's budget brand.
I am still really happy with my Michelin Pilot Sport 2's - wearing well, a little sensitive to tyre pressures on the front tho'
