Default New tires...Cooper ZEON LTZ's

Hello from Arkansas. I have a 2010 Ram 1500, Hemi, Big Horn Quad cab. Just replaced the worthless Goodyear Wranglers with Cooper ZEON LTZ's.... 275/60R20 XL.

Did alot of research on this forum, looks like the Coopers are the way to go. I drive on alot of rough gravel roads, as well as use a light weight slide in truck camper, the Coopers give me extra weight capacity.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

I recently got the same tires (265 70 17) and love them as well! They make it feel more like a truck also, I hated how I couldn't feel a bump in my truck. I put 45-50 psi in them to help with tread wear a little and help keep the heat down (they are rated for 80 psi max). Great tires, would love to see pics of your truck!

I just installed a set of these last Friday, and what a tremendous improvement over the stock, junk Goodyears. Truck also looks a hell of a lot better, handles better, rides smoother, etc. I'm running 39psi cold in mine right, which equates to about 43 psi hot.

Only thing that they didn't completely take care of was the bump-steer issue I have. It's not as bad now, but still there, but overall, I'll never run another tire again but these Coopers as long as I have this truck. Excellent tire.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't bumps steer due to unequal length steering arms. Modern vehicles (including our rams) have equal length steering arms coming from the rack and pinion, so it wouldn't be bump steer, although I have noticed on occasion it will guide it self at slow speeds and when hitting bumps.
