Sprinter Tire Options

I recently replaced the stock Continental Vanco rear tires on my 2500 Sprinter with Cooper Discoverers - supposedly a comparable work-horse tire but I swear the ride is not as responsive, so I am considering returning them - may check the pressure first. They're running comparable to what I had before.

Do other have good or bad experience with tire upgrades that they could share?

Thanks, Vic

I went to these, Michelin LTX M/S LT235/85R16. My original Continentals barely lasted 20k. These have 60k and are still good.
