Cooper GLS Touring (Our Review)
Equipped with an all-season symmetrical tread compound, the Cooper GLS Touring promises reliable performance on both dry and wet surfaces. There are circumferential grooves that aid in improving the tire’s winter traction as well as reducing the risk of hydroplaning.
The tire features multiple sipes that help in creating biting edges for traction on snowy surfaces. It does an excellent job navigating light snow, but since this isn’t a winter-specific tire, it lacks a little when it comes to traction in deep snow and on ice.
The GLS Touring features deep shoulder blocks as well as a notched center rib that help boost stability and improve the tire’s steering capabilities. Further, they help add to the life of the tread and ensure even wear. The pitch arrangement on this tire is optimized so that it ensures a great deal of comfort and reduces road noise.
- Reliable traction on dry and wet terrain
- Quiet and comfortable riding experience
- Extremely durable tread compound
- Highly responsive and sharp steering
- Not the best in terms of winter traction
- Cornering capabilities can be improved

Cooper GLS Touring Tire Customer Review
Dwayne T. says: “I’ve been a lifelong consumer of Cooper tires, and it was about time for me to upgrade the set of tires on my Altima. I thought I’d give the GLS a try based on a friend’s recommendation. The tire is very reliable on dry and wet surfaces alike. It’s also inexpensive compared to other tires within its class. Highly recommended!”Dwayne T. posted (5 / 5) review
Noah R. says: “Reliable traction? Check. Affordable pricing? Check. 45-day trial period? Check. This tire has it all. I’ve been using the GLS for quite some time now, and it has never failed me. However, if you live in an area where it tends to snow a lot, you should consider a different tire.”Noah R. posted (5 / 5) review
