Cooper Discoverer STT Tires

I know a few members have had these tires and maybe more not sure. I would like to see some opinions on the tires. I know they are pretty new yet so i might not get much review.

How was the tire overall?
Does the tire appear to be well designed?
Tread wear with the ranger?
Balance well?
Do they appear to look like a quality tire? (Like MTRs, BFG MT, or MT Tire quality?)

Add anything else would be great.

thanks

I've mounted/balanced a few of them at my work. They roll pretty well for them being an 'off-road' tire & look aggressive to boot.

I think most of the people that had them got rid of their ranger within a few months. I hope you can get the answers you are looking for

from what I've heard the STT's are suppose to be pretty damn good for a rather aggressive tire. This being what I've read in a few Four Wheeler mags.

they get louder as they get worn but its a perfect noise (:

i am thinking about getting the 37x12.5x17 for a couple reasons one main reason is they are load rating D not E like every other 17" tire.

another is they are not any wider like all those tires out there when you go taller. i really dont want wider for my style of driving and wheeling.

I've heard good things about them too. Like Edgewannabe said, they always balenced well when I worked at a tire shop.

I like em. athough i only had Cooper HT before that, but for mud they do great. They get good traction in fields eg climbing steep hills. i haven't had a chance to try them out in snow yet. They are pretty good in wet grass. Handle really well on the road. remarkable quiet for such aggressive tread. They don't seem to kick to many rocks up. my HT's were worse.

i have heard they are good tires as well, i have balanced a few at my old job, seemed to ride nice on the test drives ... not the same tire but i had a set of the cooper ats on my b2 they were a nice tire as well .. i think cooper makes decent tires

on a side note, the bfg mt is also in the size 37x12.50R17, i have those on my truck, and they are a load range D as well ... not a good tire for a heavy truck like mine but for a ranger im sure they would be fine ...

I still got to get you those pictures of that dodge!! I been busy man im sorry.


I love my 285's ill tell ya, t hey look a hell of alot more aggressive in real life then in those pictures., the tred comes down the sidewalls. I got about 10k on mine and ive gone through tires like **** through a tin horn, ive had em all, BFG, Yoko, Uniroyal, TSL, this is the easiest balancing tire ive had, and so far best wearing. Not noisy at all.

DONT cheat urself!!! A local shop sales em in my lil town and imo they look kinda cheap (not offending anyone) its just my opinion.. Not ragging their performance either cause i dont know how theyre rated but appearence only, they look cheap and on a [email protected] truck like urs id either go with the grapplers that i thought u were going to get OR the bfg mts.. Just make sure u DONT settle
