That helps wear, and I corner pretty easy and brake easy. The biggest surprise to me was that they have almost no road noise (at least in my mind). If the windows are up you can't hear them, even at 80 mph.

EDIT: I just thought about my last statement about the noise....I have terrible hearing, so probably shouldn't comment on the noise as even if they were loud I most likely wouldn't be able to tell the difference. I will say though that my wife has never commented that they were loud.
What size Coopers are you running? At 50 PSI you're not geting excessive center wear? I am thinking Coopers will be my next tire when the Goodless wear out. I has Mich. AT 2's on my 08 and there were quit. I have a 36 mile interstate commute every day so sound is somewhat of an issue

I have 265 70 17 on a 9.5" wide wheel. No uneven wear at all (honestly I can't tell ANY wear in the 15k miles I've had them). I run just under 50psi in the fronts and closer to 45psi in the rear for a little traction. I used a piece of chalk across the tire to make sure the whole tire was contacting the pavement.

hey guys thanks for all the replies
I think i am gonna go with a set of 305/55R20 Coopers on some 20X9 Fuel Hostages with a -12 offset
all my life i have liked trucks where the tires stick out a bit on the fenders, especially the stance that the new ram has i think it will look really good
thanks alot guys
if anyone has pics they can post up with the 305 coopers it would be much appreciated

I 100% agree with this, I also like the look in general, but it really fits the ram well.
