Mini Cooper tyres
Small but stylish, the Mini Cooper offers better handling and performance than the standard Mini. Sporty suspension means that it has improved ride quality, too. Its key features are this performance, everyday usability and style. All combine to make it a fun small car, one which is equally at home in urban and open-road environments.
Needless to say, many Mini Cooper drivers will choose a replacement tyre which will best complement the car’s handling and cornering performance. Pirelli run-flats are factory-fitted to many Minis. Thus it’s easy to understand why Pirelli tyres are etyres’ best seller for the Cooper, especially the P Zero run-flat.
However, there are quite a few suitable replacement tyre options to consider. Popular choices include Continental’s SportContact and PremiumContact tyres, both of which available in run-flat format. Dunlop Sport run-flats and Goodyear Excellence run-flat tyres come next on the list.
Popular mid-priced options, especially in the 16-inch size which is standard for the Cooper, are Firestone and Kumho run-flat tyres. Nexen’s N800 and NBlue ranges are also worth considering, with good performance and economy provided at a competitive price.
It’s important to remember that a worn or damaged run-flat tyre should always be replaced with a similar run-flat tyre, rather than a regular tyre.
