    Tires

    So, I have read through all the post concerning new tires and done some extensive searching. I have narrowed my choices down to the Fuzion 195/60/R14 , 225/60/R15 or the Cooper CS3 195/60/R14 and the Cooper Cobra 235/60/R15 in the rear. Has anyone seen this Cooper combination? I cant find a picture of the blackwall side of the cobras to compare with the cs3's. I'm leaning towards the Coopers as I dont think I want to go narrower in the rear. Any opinions?
    Thanks, Jason

    I ran cooper cs3s (195/60r14) and cooper cobras (245/60r15) for a while.
    I am trying to get way from the coopers as I find they are poorly made tires (not round)

    Right now I am running the cs3s up front and BFG Radial T/As (245/60r15) in the back.

    Maybe you've already settled on the choices you have but I thought I'd chime in anyway. When I did my searching previously (like a month ago) I found a couple of matched pairs, Fuzion and General.

    I wasn't able to find the Cooper set you mentioned but that might be because they were not advertised together on the web sites I was looking at: BigO, Commercial Tire, Tirerack, Discount Tire, Bruneel, Les Schwab...

    Thanks,The Coopers are the same brand, but different series of tires for the front and the rear. Im still leaving towards them, because the rears come in the original 235 width. I found them on tires-easy for 320 shipped.

    I think they are OK. (running CS3s on front & CS5s 225mm on rear). Mine are round and work just fine so far.
    There is more side wall flex with the Coopers compared to the Michelins I use to have when hitting the corners hard. That is the first thing I noticed after the switch. Those Michelins were great tires. Wish they made in our size still.
