Hello Everyone- I’m seeing that a lot of folks have good things to say about the Cooper tires for use with a truck camper.
I have been happy with the Toyo M-55s but the set on my truck will age out soon (they will be 10 next year) and I’m starting to look at replacements. I’ve only had the truck a year and the tires only have 20k miles, but they were installed in 2013 by the previous owner who drove it very little (I put on 10k of those miles in a year).
If price were no concern I’d just buy another set of M-55’s ($1,900 for a set of 4), but I figured I would at least ask how the Cooper’s have been working out for folks.
Typical use includes a lot of highway, but also a lot of gravel and snow covered roads. Over the xmas holiday we went out to eastern Oregon and back ~ 600 miles of packed snow, and the M-55’s did excellent.

I have never owned a set of Toyos but have had BF Goodrich and Michelin before buying my first set of Cooper’s. They made a huge difference in handling, didn’t get especially noisy as they wore down and were great in snow and sand. I’ve gotten 60k out of sets typically.
They are now my go to tire on my Ram.

Hi Zack, I know I am a little late but I am just now coming back to the site after an 18 month absence. You have more options than me. Both your choices are top rate. I would at least look at Toyo for comparison sake. I frequently refer to Tire Rack for insight on tires and shocks. My 3500 GMC will soon get 6 new Michelin Agilis Crosscliamate tires. The Defender model is also a good choice for all you 6 wheel truck guys.
