I had been using Coopers up until a few years ago. For some reason they turned to crap. Two sets would not balance without a ridiculous amount of weight. Like 9 oz's on one tire. Returned them and bought Michelin Defender LTX and have never looked back.

I just bought a set of Nokian Outpost AT's for my kids 05 Ram 1500. Granted they are 265/70R17's but they are pretty quiet for an AT and they weren't badly priced where I got them, considering how things are these days.

Great tread pattern on them.

They balanced out really good. I think they run great down the road. Will see how they do this winter.

Yeah, winter is fast approaching and the boy's truck needed new skins. It had a set of Cooper tires on it...they were an older tire, and the back tires were wore right down and the fronts had enough tread...

I think the back tires wore out faster because of the posi/anti-spin differential in there. Told the boys not to hammer on the throttle pulling out anymore....LOL....right.
