Nice set of rubber. I like the Coopers, very good for towing, don't hold the heat.

I have about 41K on mine and still have some rubber left, so good wear as far as I am concerned.

I would think a good tire retailer would give you a finished product, not "blue letters". Just a pet peeve of mine

I know of NO tire retailer that cleans off the blue from the tire. That is the responsibility of the vehicle owner.

To the OP: Are your Coopers made in USA?

I have purchased about ten sets of "white lettered" tires and have only had one retailer NOT have the blue cleaned off. Must be different across the country. Interesting!

cablemanF250 is starting off with a positive reputation.
They were my tire of choice, when my Firestone's started to separate, but the Firestone Dealer pro-rated them and I up grade to the Bridge-stone Dueler A/T for $34.00 a tire, couldn't complain, Very Nice...Let us now how they hold up.

Goodyear does. Mandated by the corporate office. I know, I used to work there.

Big-O Tires and American Tire also have the same policy. I know, I've purchased tires from them.
