Zeon 275/60/20

I had my mind set on Toyo Open Country AT2 in size LT285/55/20 for some time now, but started to consider Cooper Zeon LTZ P275/60/20 due to the amount I travel for work and not wanting to lose much mpg with an all terrain tire (currently have Nitto 420S size 305/50/20 street tires).

The zeon P275 looked pretty good based on other photos I've seen and had numerous good reviews. TreadDepot indicates the zeon P275 tire weighs 53 lbs, which seemed weird being its a P series tire. The toyo P275 tire is shown to weigh around 43 lbs, while the toyo LT285 is listed at 57lbs. If the zeon P275 truly weighs that much, I'll probably go with toyo LT285 since they dont weigh too much more and they are what I originally wanted.

Can anyone comment on the weight of the zeon P275 tire?

Weight of the tires is only one factor. Don't get hung up on it. It matters more if you do a lot of start stop than if you are cruising

Cant answer your question about the weight of the tire but the cooper zeons are a pretty nice tire smooth quite nice riding nice looking. I have them in 285/60/18. Good luck with your choice either way they are both good tires but I am also looking at toyos and the miles ppl are geeting is real good.

I have them and love them so far. They are about as aggressive a/t you can get. Price is great as well.

what size toyo are you running?

I get about 15.5 to 16 mpg on highway with my nitto 420S 305/50/20 street tires. Was hoping that 275/60 or 285/55 A/T tires will get at least as good being they are narrower but heavier tires.

My mistake. I got confused since I mentioned my original intent to go with Toyo OC AT2, and got the impression you had those tires.
