Cooper Zeon LTZ or Nitto Terra Grappler

Im trying to decide between the Coopers or the Nittos in size 285/60/18
I can get the Cooper Zeon LTZs for $779
I can get the Nitto Terra Grapplers for $689

Is it worth the extra $90 for the Coopers? My gut feeling is yes, but the thing that worries me about the Coopers is that they are a 10 ply tire, which I'm afraid will really hurt the ride and mpg.

Any opinons?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

They both weigh about the same. I have found the Coopers have much better wet weather traction than the Nitto's, and a very slight edge in off road traction. As for wear, they seem to wear about the same.
