This American brand, specialising in the middle market segment, is the second largest independent tyre manufacturer in the USA.

Good performance comes hand in hand with an attractive price, thanks to which Cooper tyres are friendly to the average driver's pocket. If you want to enjoy a safe and comfortable ride, while at the same time not overpaying for a known brand, these tyres are ideal for you.
"High-quality product, honest profit and good business": This has been Cooper's credo for as long as the company has existed. By applying this belief, the company guaranteed itself success in the first years of its activity, resulting in intensive development in various US states. Today, Cooper has more than 60 outlets worldwide and employs approximately 20,000 people.
After the USA entered the Second World War, the company became involved in army activities and started producing tyres for military vehicles, as well as life jackets and dinghies.
The history of the Cooper brand dates back to 1914. That year, two businessmen, John F. Schaefer and Claude E. Hart, bought the M & M Manufacturing Company, which produced repair materials for tyres.
In the 1980s, intensive development led Cooper to commit itself to the replacement tyre market (at that time, it was already approximately three times more profitable than the original equipment market).
Cooper was founded in Akron, Ohio — America's tyre valley. In the first decades of the 20th century, the city had 140 tyre companies.
For a long time, Cooper was not strongly represented outside the USA. This only changed in 1997 with its acquisition of the British company Avon Rubber.
