Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. officially introduced its premium all-season touring tire, the Cooper CS4 Touring, to dealers at its Pearsall, Texas, test track.

(The company previewed the tire at the 2006 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show last November.)

The new CS4 provides two all-season tread options:

* a T-rated, four-rib tread design (in 29 sizes).

* an H- or V-rated, five-rib design (in 31 sizes).

Sizes range from 14 through 18 inches. According to Cooper, the size lineup fits many of the most popular sedans, minivans and crossover vehicles on the road today.

Featuring a newly formulated performance compound and R-Tech (Response-Technology) construction that utilizes design features working in concert with each other, the tire delivers high performance grip in addition to all-weather handling.

The CS4's stylish black sidewall includes an extended bead filler that is designed to provide good handling capabilities and lane change and cornering ability. (A white pinstripe sidewall is available in size 225/60TR16.)

Cooper is backing the premium touring tire with two limited tread-wear warranties: an 80,000-mile warranty for T-rated sizes, and a 60,000-mile warranty for H- and V-rated sizes. The company also is offering CS4 Touring buyers a free 45-day road test "to assure complete consumer satisfaction."

"This tire is unquestionably the most thoroughly performance-tested passenger tire in the history of Cooper," says the company.

The Cooper CS4 Touring will be produced at the company's Tupelo, Miss., and Albany, Ga., manufacturing facilities. For more information on the Cooper CS4 Touring, visit
