Default Cooper Zeon LTZ for 17" wheels (Pics)

Thought some of you would want these for reference. As some might have seen I've been going tire crazy lately, I've narrowed it down to the cooper zeon ltz in either the 265 70 17 or 285 70 17. The 265 is available with OWL, the 285 is black letter only. I'm leaning toward the 265, it looks a little meaner to me with less sidewall, and I like the raised white letters.

to clarify the pics, the first is obvious, bigger (285) on the left, the second one is the 265 with OWL, third is 285, and the last is the 265 black letters and unmounted, i lost the pic of the 285 unmounted...

Also the wheels are american racing dominators, 9" wide. the tire shop has been very helpful, and are also hooking me up with new chrome center caps and lugs. will post pics saturday after the install..... feel free to comment please!

I can't believe I forgot to mention the most important part about these tires, they are coopers, so they are MADE IN THE USA!

I personally like the 285's just because they're bigger tires lol. But either of them would be awesome to run considering those are really good tires. And I like what you're doin with the black wheels and chrome center caps. That'll look really good.

I like the wheel choice. Very nice! Either tire would look good but I'm with him ^^^^ ... I like the bigger tire.

Thanks! I got the wheels for free from my father, I helped him with some work and he bought them off his lawn guy used fairly cheap and gave them to me as payment(need center caps if anyone knows where to get them cheap, tire shop couldn't locate them inexpensively). I wasn't sure I liked them until I mounted the tire, I hope I still like it once it's on the truck lol. I also like the bigger tire, but I love the look of the skinnier tire on a 9" wide wheel, it looks better to me, and the bigger one looked sort of "bubbly" or whimpy, just too much sidewall for my taste. Also, I have a 4.7L with 3.55 so I'd rather have lighter weight and keep from hurting my gearing. One day I'll get 3.92 with lsd and maybe then can get the 285!

Do you know what size the center caps are? And I can see why you want the 265's, they still look really good. And they won't kill your gas mileage either.

When I measured it is approx. between 4" and 4 1/8" diameter depending on if you measure the wheel or the cap... I can't seem to find this size, closest I can find is 4 1/4". I would love some help with the center caps if you don't mind! It's the last piece of the puzzle lol

Have you contacted American Racing to see if they still have caps?

Have not tried contacting them directly, have looked on sites that sell their products, ebay, etc.... My main goal is to not spend $20 a piece on these....I'd love to find some plain chrome no name knockoffs for $5 each. I'm sure if I called AR they'd be expensive.
