Cooper Tire’s Zeon CS8 passenger car tyre, 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 tyre 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 tyre,” said Glenn Arbaugh, Director, Global OE Light Vehicle Business & Strategy for Cooper. “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. 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.”
