Goodyear tires generally receive better reviews than Cooper tires due to their superior performance in most comparisons between the two brands. However, Cooper tires are often noted to offer a better price-to-performance ratio than their more expensive Goodyear equivalents.
The raw performance characteristics of Goodyear tires are usually superior to those of comparable Cooper tires, leading to better cornering, shorter stopping distances and higher amounts of traction for cars fitted with Goodyear tires. However, many reviewers consider Cooper tires to have sufficient performance for all but the most demanding drivers. The lower price of Cooper's products also makes them an attractive choice. Cooper's warranty coverage often exceeds that offered by Goodyear on similar tires.
