$ wise the Coopers are gonna be a little less just because the of the alignment price.....the tires are gonna be the same $ wise. I do believe the Toyo's are 10 ply though and the Coopers are 6 ply.

I have never run coopers of any kind so I don't know how long they will go. But I do know the toyos are a pretty soft compound and wear quickly. Congrats on the new ride!!

My dad has the Toyo's on his D-Max and they have close to 35-40% left and he has 35K or so on them. He doesn't tow that often but when he does it's
18K+. The Coopers are supposed to last 60K according to the dealer.I have a set sitting here but haven't tryed them yet cause they are only 8ply and my new trailer might not make them last.

When I was shopping for tires my first option was the Toyo's since there are very few manufacturers that make the 275/70/18 for my 06 F350. But the Toyo were back order and couldn't get my hand on them, my second choice was the Good Year Silent Armour which was back order till end of Feb. or March. So I finally went to Cooper, I very sceptical about these tires and had never had a set, I am fairly pleased up to date with them, I've had them for a month and have put on about 4000 miles on them and they perform very well in snow, ice and on pavement. Even at high speed they barely shimmy (100mph +).

Shopping for another set I would definetely consider Cooper as a quality tire. As for wear, it is hard to say since its cold out, so tires don't wear out fast on cold pavement.

But if you are shopping for a summer tires go with the Michelin LTX, these are the best tires I have ever driven on all my trucks, I have had at least 5 or 6 sets of these and they are the best hands down for wear on the summer pave. A little picky to get them balanced, usually have to use a "Road Force" balancer to get them good. But to handle the weight and towing heavy loads, they are the best. Unfortunately they don't make any in the 18's.

Oh' by the way all my tires are 10 plys

Just my 2 cents.
