Do not buy coooper tires this is the second time I have been burnt by this brand in 3 months. First my 2011 jeeps cooper tires with 80% tread 1.5 yrs old went out of round on the inner edges all 4 noticed one day it started to sound like i had mud tires. Today I am driving my truck with 275/60R20 Cooper Discoverer at3 tires again about 2 yrs old 70% tread and I start to get a front end viberation looked it over SURE ENOUGH outer edge of all 4 tires out of round. I paid $1200 for these tires and loved them up until now the traction was great ect but come on... falling apart with little mileage and 70% tread I guess they dont make them like they use to........

Thanks for the report. It is weird how can front tires and back tires suffer the same thing when back tires are just trailing. I believe you 100%, but this is hard to figure on.

I like their Zeon line of tires,decent traction,and they usually last about a 1 1/2 years on the back of my truck and on the wifes 1320,which is better then alot of tires last on our toys,lol

Exactly its weird as hell I saw they recalled some tires for sidewall sepration dont think im apart of it tho looking into it . If it was just the fronts i would think it was a alignment but all 4 on both vehicles.

I've got 2 sets of these and have not had a minutes worth of problems and have done on road, off road. Snow ice and dirt. No issues and over 35k on one set and 25 on the other. I suggest it's specific to the tires when manufactured, not indicated for the entire brand. My thoughts

Yeah, I ran a set of Zeons on my '08 1500, they lasted a good long time but that was a long time ago. Really sticky on wet pavement too.
