Cooper Tires

So I posted about some tires awhile ago and haven't been home to drive my truck but I'm back now and was looking at the cooper discover at3 reasonable price and I like these because they offer a 55K mile warranty. But They only have them in a D(8 ply) rating. Am I just asking for trouble? Or should I get them on order?

A) I would not go any lower than E range

B) Just a personal opinion, but I had a set of cooper discover or discovery on my old truck when I bought it, they were absolutely terrible and would hydroplane all the time.

C) I just bought a set of Falken tires Here, and I couldn't be happier with them. The free shipping doesn't hurt either. Check their prices, they seem to have the best prices around.

I loved my cooper discoverer atr's I had on my chevy 1500, can't speak for them on a heavier vehicle. Do you tow anything? If not or its just small stuff, you will be fine with D load range, if you go over their weight rating, you might be ok, or they might blow and you might total your rig or hurt someone in the process, keep in mind most insurance companies will deny your claim if something like that happens, you need to CYA when it comes to these things.

my normal load is about 2500-3500K. But I also pull my 35ft enclosed from time to time that weights 8000ish..? Both of those are what have me concerned. I'm just having a problem finding tires and have heard good things about those coopers.

My truck came with D rated tires on it when I bought it, and I just replaced them with 315/75/16 tires..with a D rating. Never had any issues. I don't tow heavy often though. The most I'll usually tow is around 7-8000lbs, and that's only a few times a year.

What size are you looking at? They have several sizes that are E rated. I had a set of these tires put on a work truck earlier this year and they did fine for about the 5k miles I put on them before I turned that truck in. I also have 2 friends that have these tires on their Dodge diesels and they have nothing bad to say about them either. Being a good deal helped them to decide on these tires.

On another note, the tires that were on my truck when I bought it were Hankook Dynapro somethings, I put 4k in the bed and they were fine. Just a short trip though. Truck only sagged an inch. I heard good things about them, but price was why I didn't get them again.

I don't think that my discoverers were at3's, just some radial style.

So in order to get 10plys in these coopers I would have to go with 305/70/16. Does anyone have a pic of a crew cab with a 4in lift with that tire size they can load? I'm not sure if that will look funny or not. Thanks

I know it's not the best pic, but here's mine and OSAW's truck (dunno if he's a member here). Mine is leveled with 315/75/16s. His is lifted 4", with 305/70/16s.
