Tread life so far is ok but only about 1000 miles on them.

I bought these tires to run on a 2004, and then later switch to my 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 Crew Cab 4x4 Pickups (SRW running 19.5 Vision 81 wheels). I previously ran Dunlop SP431s (which were a near perfect tire - too bad they quit making them), and this tread pattern seems to be the most similar to the Dunlop as any other tire out there in a 245-70R19.5. As another reviewer stated, these tires are actually cheap Chinese tires not actually made by Cooper (supposedly engineered by Cooper, but you know as well as I do that doesn't mean a thing). Because of that (and because I want a non-vibrating ride on a bigger truck going 80mph+ down the highways) I paid extra for Rickson's Tire and Wheel to match mount and balance them, true them on the rim, and install EQUAL tire balancing beads. After installation on the trued rims, Ricksons had to shave every tire to actually "true" it up so that it was perfectly round (higher priced brand names don't usually need much if any trueing). On all tires, 1/2 to 7/8 of the circumference needed to be trued - tell tale signs that they are not the best quality tire, or that quality control is lacking. After installing on the trucks (I have used this one set on both trucks now)...they seem to ride very comfortably and are very smooth and nice going down the highway. These tires have a considerable amount of higher pitched tire "whine" or noise from the deep tread lugs...not horrible, but much more noticeable than my previous tires (not enough of a noise to make or break buying them). Traction off road in fields seems to be very good, and I am waiting to try them in snow over the next couple months. From the first mile, I have noticed a fair bit of "tire squish", which is common until they get broke in and the rubber hardens (they need several heat cycles through them, best if they are under load - this kind of makes them feel like they are floating across lanes of the highway). All in all , I think that they will be a comfortable tire on my big trucks, and offer a softer ride (load range G instead of most 19.5s that are H), and provide good tread wear. My biggest complaint thus far is that the tires were not true from factory, and by shaving some of the tread off to true them, I will not get as many miles out of them as I should. Other better brands of 19.5s should give around 65K to 85K miles, but honestly, I would only expect 40K-50K out of these...time will tell. At the price of $175-205/tire...they are probably a fair buy but I would be a bit concerned if you were not going to pay extra for tire trueing and match balancing...although they are probably still going to get you 50-100% more tread life than a stock tire (265/70r17) at a similar price. I would buy again, but your tire installer should be prepared to send back any tires that have too much runout or are out of round.

These aren't cooper tires. They are Chinese shit (obvious from the rest of the website) that are Roadmaster brand tires. In small letters they say "engineered by cooper tires" crock of shit buyer beware

I ordered seven of the Cooper Road Master RM253 tires to get a more aggressive posture for my F450 DRW Truck. They glide down the highway like I just bought a Limo! Very pleased with this tire so far and would highly recomend these to my friends! Personell at Simple Tire were very responsive and helpful! I'll check here for all my new tires before shopping anywhere else!
