Cooper gains first VW tyre supply with new T-Roc

The Cooper Zeon CS8 has been chosen as an original equipment tyre for the new T-Roc compact SUV in European markets, and in doing so has given Cooper Tire & Rubber its first-ever original equipment approval with Volkswagen. The VW T-Roc, which is produced at Volkswagen’s Autoeuropa factory in Palmela, Portugal, will receive the Zeon CS8 in size 205/60R16 92V.

“We are thrilled to be associated with Volkswagen’s exciting new entry into the compact SUV category with the Cooper Zeon CS8 tyre,” said Glenn Arbaugh, director, Global OE Light Vehicle Business & Strategy at Cooper Tire & Rubber. “Our global OE development team, based in the United States, collaborated extensively with Volkswagen to develop a tyre uniquely suited to the stylish and fuel-efficient T-Roc crossover. The Cooper Zeon CS8 has exceptional wet grip, with an A rating for the feature on the EU tyre label, yet it does not compromise fuel economy and offers a superior, quiet ride.”
