Cooper S/T

Has anyone had any experience with these? Or maybe the STTs? Or is there one that anyone would suggest more(besides BFGs)?

please let me know what you think on this one....

I am loving my STT's. They clean out well around 3000k rpm. They are really quiet on the road and never really hydroplaned. I haven't had them long enough to estimate tire wear but they seem to be ok. I 'd say if you take care of them ...40k miles.

I've heard they're a good tire... My buddy austin had them on his truck before we put the superlift on and he really liked them

We put them on all of our work owned trucks (St's) and I think they are wonderful tires that can be had for about 20-40 bucks less than a BFG. I am buying them for the explorer come winter.

Had the STT's on my old cherokee an a buddy has them on his 4runner.

Both of us were happy with thier performance but rather disapointed by the tire life.

I went from them to the khumo MT's. Huge difference in performance and while they were louder on the road than the coopers they made up for it off the pavement. Sold the jeep before I could see how long they lasted though.

My next set will be the khumo's

The S/T's are not the STT's so I'm afraid all the STT reviews are useless to you, lol. It's a common mistake.

I've had S/T's in two sizes: 31" and 35" and they were very good in both. Tire life is somewhere between an AT and MT tire and may disappoint you.

They're particularly good in snow for some reason, better than an AT for sure in all other offroading situations. They showed up BFG AT/KO's many times when I ran them.

If you are looking for a "compromise" tire between street and offroad, they're a great choice, IMO.

But the newer 3 ply sidewall designs like the Mickey Thompson ATZ's might suit you better if you're hard on a tire. Cooper owns and makes Mickey Thompson tires. I run the MTZ's myself but only for offroading. I run BFG AT/KO's on my truck for the street because of the long wearing of them.

My friend had ST's and liked them. They worked well for him, they were noisey but he had 285's and never rotated them.
