Cooper SST's Or Goodyear MT/R's?

Well I need new tires within the next 2 months so what ya'll think I should go with? Those who have these can you post the millage you got off them? I am leaning towards the MT/R's.

P.S.- I am getting 35X12.5X15's so if anyone has any other suggestions let me know.

Also where is a good place to buy from?

I don't really like the look of the Claws, its also a directional tire, so wouldn't you be screwed if you had to go in reverse or something?

stt's will kick MT/R's any day, but the mileage on them isn't the great from what I hear.

Ah man, STT's are amazing. I haven't heard bad things about MTR's but I've heard really good things about the STT's. I'm just saying my vote is for the STT's without a doubt.

i love my MTZs, but with it out of alignment KILLED the 2 that are out back now, the 2 up front are fairing pretty well..

they work great for me. in the rocks and dirt they are amazing, snow they dont do too bad for their size.. but you dont know what snow is

I'm a huge fan of the Toyos, and since they look almost the same as SSTs thats where i would have to put my vote.. but i have no idea about wear.
