We've had Cooper Zeons 275/55/20 for about the last 40k, with probably another 10k in them. No real complaints, although they have gotten a bit noisy (to be expected) and have two punctures from screws (one through the tread block, one in between blocks).

They handle themselves pretty well off road, although they've been used almost exclusively in sand so I can't comment on any other conditions. On road I've found them maybe a touch less sure footed than the stock kumhos, but nothing to be concerned about. Have found it pretty easy to spin them up in the wet though

Ive had 20'' Grapplers on my car now for approx 20,000 k's and have found them to be great. Had them on some slippery muddy crud a few times and they handled really well. I have also noticed they spin pretty easy sometimes when taking off in the wet on bitumen but I put that down to oily crap on the road surface at the time. I run 40 psi in them and they are wearing perfect. They have been rotated twice in that time.

Be very careful, I have Yokos in a 275/55/20 and they are smaller than yours and I have had some minor rubbing in the rear RHS felt when I did some light 4WD, I also have air Suspension.

Remember all 275/55/20 are not the same they are all different and can vary up to 20mm inclusive of height, width and tread depth.

Cheers

Hi how bad were they rubbing and where exactly? Did you have the car raised fairly high?
Thanks
Mark

I was in off road 1.



Have you checked your rear side clearance ??



Can you fit your fingers between the bottom of felt liner and the sidewall on the rears both at the front and rear of the tyre ?

I am in the same position and need to decide between the Pirelli Scorpion ATR and the Cooper HT Plus in 275 55 20. Has anyone tried these more road orientated Coopers?

If you are looking for a highway Cooper, you cant go past the SRX. They have them in the size you want as well.
Had mine on for 40K now, and they have hardly worn. They are super quiet and awesome in the wet.
Check them out....http://www.coopertires.com.au/our-range/4x4-tyres/srx/

Cheers, Craig

The Nitto's are great for longevity but not too good in the wet. I just replaced mine after 65,000kms and they still have a heap of tread. I only replaced them because they're no longer any good in the wet, and I tow a boat.

I second Craig's recommendation. I replaced the original Kumho's with the SRX at 38k (Kumho's were stuffed). I've done 10k on the SRX so far and they look like you could still put them back on the rack as new tyres. Very good on road manners, especially in the wet. Cooper offer an 80k warranty on them (twice the distance I got out of the Kumho's) but were only $15 more per tyre.
