In October of 2008, Cooper released their Zeon RS3 tire. It became the official tire of the ROUSH Mustang, and remains standard equipment on Roush's Mustangs. That was several years ago.
In the time that has passed, the company has spent countless hours working to further build upon the success of the original RS3. Cooper’s newest performance tires for the Mustang are the Zeon RS3-S and the Zeon RS3-A. Both tires were based on the original RS3 tire, although each are designed with a different purpose.
Improved Control on Both Wet and Dry Surfaces
Cooper’s Zeon RS3-S tire, which replaces the current Cooper Zeon 2XS, is an ultra-high performance summer tire offering a low-profile, high performance rating. The company says this tire combines world-class dry road traction, increased handling, and exceptional cornering ability. The RS3-S will be available in 21 sizes and will launch in April 2011.
The Cooper Zeon RS3-A tire replaces the current Cooper Zeon Sport A/S. This tire is an ultra-high performance all-season tire which combines large tread elements and asymmetric design. This, the company says, provides all-season confidence in less-than ideal weather conditions. This is, in part, due to the tire’s advanced technology mold profile, which provides a square tread footprint, resulting in improved road contract. The RS3-A will be initially offered in 31 sizes and will launch in April 2011. Additional sizes are scheduled for later in the year.
