Cooper Tires: Where the Rubber Hits the Road
Cooper offers a full portfolio of tires for cars, trucks, and sports cars, but their emphasis has been tires for family cars, SUVs, and pickups. Based on Consumer Reports ratings, Cooper all-season car tires offer good value with a blend of long tread life, secure handling, and good all weather grip. There are numerous types of tires available for consumers which fit the needs of different cars, driving conditions and performance goals. Options within the categories of tires for cars include all-season, performance and winter tires, while truck tires also include all-season, along with winter and all-terrain.
One of the few independent tire manufacturers in the U.S. with origins going back to the early 20th century, Cooper is among the world’s top-10 tire makers. Based in Findlay, Ohio, Cooper Tires offers a full array of tires, including the Avon, Cooper, Mastercraft, and Starfire brands. Cooper tires are most often sold by independent dealers.
Cooper was established as an independent tire manufacturer in 1914 by brothers-in-law John F. Schaefer and Claude E. Hart. The duo purchased M and M Manufacturing Company, a rubber manufacturing company, and began creating rubber replacement tires and repair kits. In the 1940s, the company changed its name to Cooper Tire and Rubber Company, which was eventually shortened to Cooper Tire. Production expanded, and the company now holds the title of fourth largest tire manufacturing company in the United States and ranks 11th in the world.
