Comment:
I live in Idaho and tend to do more highway and rural driving. This was my second set of Cooper tires for my Honda CRV and neither set only lasted around 40,000 miles. Yet, I religiously rotated these tires as recommended. The tires are noisy but handled good in snow but not ice. For the price, you may want to try a better rated tire as they were just a pricey as the leading brands.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

For the last 2 years I drive over 50000 miles/year for my commute, in all weather and the CS4 has given me very good value for $. I have them on over 1 year and have achieved the 80,000 mile rating. My commute is about 70/30% hwy/city.<br /><br />They are very good in the snow. My 09 Corolla has 170,000 miles on it and the tires give me a very good average MPG of 41, which is better than the Bridgestones I did have on.<br /><br />Only downside is a little bit noisier than other tires. I will buy this tire again.
