Cooper Zeon CS8 to be OE on New VW T-Roc in EU

Cooper Tire’s high performance Cooper Zeon CS8 passenger car tire has been selected as OE on the new Volkswagen T-Roc compact SUV, sold throughout Europe.

Cooper Tire’s high performance Cooper Zeon CS8 passenger car tire in size 205/60R16 92V has been selected as original equipment (OE) on the new Volkswagen T-Roc compact SUV, sold throughout Europe. The T-Roc is produced at Volkswagen’s Autoeuropa factory in Palmela, Portugal. This marks the first Cooper tire to be specified as an OE fitment for Volkswagen.

“We are thrilled to be associated with Volkswagen’s exciting new entry into the compact SUV category with the Cooper Zeon CS8 tire,” said Glenn Arbaugh, director of global OE light vehicle business and strategy for Cooper. “Our global OE development team, based in the United States, collaborated extensively with Volkswagen to develop a tire 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 tire label, yet it does not compromise fuel economy and offers a superior, quiet ride.”
