Default Tire review check

I am looking at the Cooper CS4 for my DTS. 235/55R17. I have seen some good reviews. $136.00 locally + $22.00 ea. labor and $69.00 for 4 wheel balancing
It sounds steep, but Cooper dealers are hard to find here.
Any comments?

hey, i just got cooper CS-4 for my bonnie (although 225-60-16) about a month or two ago, already have 500+ miles on them and them are sweet. good traction in rain, good handling, they are a big steep up from my firestones previously on it. and i ordered mine though my mechanic which got them from PepBoys for $106/each.

For a touring/all season tire, kinda a high price.

we sell them where i work, and we sell alot of them. Were are also a cooper dealer, wow $69 to balance them, we usually include that in the price so that does seem steep. They also have a 80,000 mile tread life warranty. I'll let you know what we sell them for put on and balanced just for comparison.
