Hey guys, could some people with these tire sizes please post some pictures, so i can visually see the difference in these two tires on their trucks. I also have a leveling kit in mine, i would like to do a side by side comparison, and need your help. I've seen that these tires both fit, and both look great, but need the two visually on one page so i can make my decision. And ive come to the conclusion, that these tires seem to be the best for the money, and they look soooo badass, i actually like them better than the nittos and the toyos. thanx for all your help smilies all around

When I was comparing 265 70 17 and 285's ( don't remember the aspect ratio) zeon ltz's for my truck, I had a shop order in one of each, they even mounted each on a wheel for me to look at. Did it all free of charge. I chose the smaller, glad I did, they look great and I am actually planning on lowering the rear of my truck 2". I think the bigger tires wouldn't have looked as good. Also the bigger didn't have white letters that I wanted, may be something to consider for you. Also, bigger and wider means more rolling resistance and weight, which equates to slower and worse mpg....now just for reference the tires and wheel combo I got are like 15lb heavier each wheel and I didn't notice a difference on acceleration or mpg over stock.

thats awesome, i didnt realized they had raised white lettering (which i love) on these tires at all. Snusnark, can you please upload a pic of these on your truck? i'd love to see them, also, i personally love the look of wide tires, but i just wanna make shure they don't become flexed around the rim, because they are so wide compared to the rim width. I've seen some pictures before, but none with the stock 20's. I've decided to keep them because of the price.

This is the only one I have on photobucket, I can take more tonight if there's anything specific you want to see just let me know. They are 265 770 17 on 9.5" wide wheels. I love the look of the tire on a wider wheel. Also love the raised white letters. I like wide tires too, but am very happy I didn't go with the 285's, they would have been slightly wider, but also taller, and would have looked skinnier on the wheels...

I personally would not go with the 305/50/20 especially with a leveling kit because that tire is a full inch shorter than the stock 275/60/20. The 305 is also more expensive than the 275 from what I have seen. The wider width is nice and mean looking but I think you will appreciate the taller tire better. If you have to have the wider tire you could consider the 305/55/20 (which you could easily run with a leveling kit) but that size is insanely more expensive than the 275/60 or 305/50. Just my 2 cents, good luck!!

Oh and great choice on the Zeons. They are freakin awesome!

Thank you both, Thoes tires look badass, I cannot get the raised white letters on any 20 inch rim. I wish i could. I didn't realize (untill i did some research) that the 305 50 was a shorter tire, thanx for bringing that up, and i did see the 305 55 was like 350 bucks a tire, ouch. I am looking to go bigger, so i think i will settle on the 305 55, and if anyone has any pictures, on a leveling kit, i would appreciate some pix

AzHunter will become famous soon enough
Default Would like to see pics too

I have a 2010 with the stock 275 60 20's cooper zeons and they look awesome. I am not looking at going to a larger tire but I would like to see the same truck with and without the leveling kit as a comparison with the stock tires if anyone has one.

The tread pattern on AzHunter's truck looks completely different than the tires on Snrusnak's truck. Does anybody know why this is because if I'm not mistaken, they are both Cooper Zeon LTZ's.
