Cooper Zeon LTZ Tires

Anyone have/had these on a 250 or 350? If so, what are the opinions on this tire? Could you also please post pics of your truck with them?

I'm wondering what they would look like on a leveled '07 F250. The size I am looking at is the 275/65/20 which is 34" high. Right now I have the Discoverer STT's in a 35x12.50x20, but they wore down way too fast. Thanks!

as far as i know the cooper zeon LTZ are just a light truck tire ie. half tons. I personally wouldnt run them on a diesel due to the weight of the front end alone would probably burn the tires off too fast, let alone if your are towing or hauling anything the life of the tire would be sure to disappoint you! also i believe they are only a six ply rating and I like to see a minimum of 8ply on a 250

They are an "E" rated tire...so they have the load rating for our trucks.

I was seriously considering them but went with nitto terra grapplers instead. I was under the impression that the compound was harder on the zeon ltz tire than the terra grapplers and although they would last they might not hook as well at the track. The ltz is a great looking tire but I have no idea how well they last or grip.

As far as I know you are correct, I've always heard that Nitto rubber is a lot softer but just wait til those terras run out, they get loud

Thanks guys-for all the replies. I would like to see some pics if possible. I don't go off road, and really don't tow much either. My truck is more of a "garage queen" than anything.

these are 305/55/20 which is a 33x12.5x20. Mine dont rub and my wheels are 20x10 I think not sure about offset but if you are going to run stock wheels with it you wont have any problem with rubbing
