The Cooper Zeon CS8 passenger car tire has been selected as original equipment for the new VW T-Roc in size 205/60 R16 92V. This SUV, sold throughout Europe, is produced at Volkswagen’s AutoEuropa factory in Palmela, Portugal. The new OE fitment deal is the first between the two companies.

“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, global OE light vehicle business and strategy for Cooper.

“Our global OE development team, based in the USA, 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.”
