Cooper Zeon LTZ's has anyone got any comments?

I am due for new tyres after only 17000kms so now I'm trying to decide what tyre to get. I do a bit of offroad driving, nothing too serious, and a fair bit of beach driving.

Has anyone got any recommendations on tyre? If anyone is using the cooper zeon LTZ's what size and don't they scrum the inner guards? The current tyre size is 265/60/18 and the LTZ's are 285/60/18 so they are a little wider.

Also I would be interested if anyone has used these on any other car before and can comment on road noise? I used to run Bfgs on a previous 4wd and also cooper a/ts these were both terribly noisy, and not really suitable for the jgc.

Comments would be appreciated, thanks

Re: Cooper Zeon LTZ's has anyone got any comments?

tire rack reviews and ratings are always a good starting point for research?

I just put Cooper AT3's on my pick up truck and so far I really like them. I know they are not the exact same tire but they are quiet and grip really well. Took quite a bit of weight to get them balanced though.

Re: Cooper Zeon LTZ's has anyone got any comments?

I have the LTZs on 285/50/20 without any rubbing issues. I did a lot of research and most of it was positive. These tires are a nice compromise of all terrain yet streetable. I've taken it twice on 600+ mile roadtrips and am happy with how quiet they are. I went with a wider size to make my ride a little more agressive stance. I highly recommend them.
Ride height is at OR1

They look pretty close to the wheel well but no rubbing what so ever.

They are great tires. I installed 285/50/20 LTZ's on my 2012 Overland. I did get 20X9 Factory Reproduction wheels. A few members mentioned the tires in threads in the Suspension/Driveline/Brakes/Wheels/Tires section. They wear great. I got 50,000+ miles on a set on a RRS S/C.
