Default My final tire decisions...

So I have narrowed it down to 2 tires now. I am trying to find some that are my stock size, so I don't have to worry about any rubbing. (275/60/20)

My final choices are:

Nitto Terra Grapplers
Cooper Zeon LTZ

I like the look of them both, but like the cheaper price of Cooper's better, ha ha. But, I want to know everyone's performance experience with these, if any have them.
Which of those two would y'all suggest I get? All opinions are appreciated!

I cannot speak from personal experience but I have read reviews and it seems like most people like both of the tires you have selected as your final two. I'm planning on running the coopers on 22s in the future.

I was told about Toyo's, but they don't come in my stock size. But then i was also told to stay away from Toyo's...

Me too, that's how I narrowed it down to these two. On discount tire, the Nitto's are a 4 star overall review with 34 pages worth of reviews, while the Coopers are a 4 and a half star review with 1 review... I am still thinking about spending the little extra cash to get the Nitto's. I think they will look ok with my stock Rims, Cooper's would too.

Nitto's = $244 a piece
Cooper's = $210 a piece

for th emoney the copper's are awesome. Great in the snow and rain mine is only 2wd and they are great. look sick on the truck as well. some road noise not a lot. My buddy had the nittos on and they have alot of road noise and he just did not like how they road. he got the cooper's and thats what made me get them too. mine are the stock 20's as well. mine do rub a hair on the stabilizer bar at full cock to the right.

Another cheap place to look for tires is onlinetires.com. I have purchased from them a couple of times.

I think I am gonna go with the Cooper Zeon LTZ's. Their tread design looks better, and a tad more aggressive. PLUS cheaper!

Can't speak on the Nittos other than that I have heard good things about them. I have the Coopers on stock 20s and highly recommend them. They are the perfect blend of aggressive sport and all terrain tire and still have great road manners. You will be pleased with the Coopers and I think several miles down the road you will be happier with them, especially in terms of wear and noise.

Thanks for the information Starquest! I've heard so many positive things over the Nitto's, and I LOVE the look of them online. I'm sure I will love the look of them on my Laramie more though! Do you have any pictures of your Ram with them on?
