Performance Tires

Cooper Zeon RS3 tires are ultra high performance, so they are designed for grip and handling at the expense of tread life. The RS3-A is the all season version of this performance tire, while the RS3-S is a summer version. They all have a free 45 day road test, for USA only.

Zeon ZPT is an premium level performance all season tire, so it looks like an ultra high performance tire, but is a little bit cheaper, and has slightly lower traction.
