    I am wondering has anyone noticed how much toyo mt's look like cooper stt's I know Toyo's are made by Cooper but has anyone heard if either one is better than the other? I know the Toyos are like 12 pounds heavier than the Coopers and i dont know if 48 pounds will even make a difference i like the look of the toyos they have that more squared off look vice the rounded look of the coopers what do you think

    buddy of mine had both and unless his driving changed in between them the toyos last longer...possibly a stiffer rubber or sidewall (extra weight) his truck was a big superduty and they are hard on tires anyhow but the toyos lasted like 45K till on the wear bars...coopers were like 37k i think and they cost him more

    I am a Cooper fan, but Tacoziilla350 speaks of a real experience, and 8000 miles is a BIG difference. Take the difference between the cost and divide by the miles(8000) and see what you want.

    i like the look of both real aggressive with tons of little "hooks" to grab onto a surface...
