Hard to find ANY Cooper stuff online overall. Cooper actually frowns on that, preferring to keep their network of dealers (from mom-and-pop shops to super service facilities) in business.

Consider also the Mickey Thompson MTZ's I have. Similar in some respects and also made by Cooper.

The carcass' (interior structure before tread is applied) 3 ply sidewalls and 6 ply tread area are supposed to be super-strong and also form the basis of the new ProComp Xtreme series tires. It may be the same carcass used in the STT.

MTZ's, I love the way they look. I've heard nothing but awesome about them.

I just saw a 1500 dodge at my work with them...drooooool. They are like a baja claw/trxus mt/nitto mud grappler all in one...

BTW, they were the 38's on 20's...they looked sooooo nice. They weren't loud though?

35's

I like a little fender gap though..just me.

If I were you, 35's b/c then when you superlift you can keep the tires and have NICE clearance. I dunno if you even are going to lift more, but either way, 35's..

MTZ's are loud between 0 and 20 mph. They get quieter the faster you drive. I'm not sure just HOW quiet they can get because I'm only running a 3.0...

well ricky at the moment i really dont know what size i want cause im not 100% on what i want to do with my truck, i want to lift more but my engine blows, i want a new truck, but i dont want to start all over again, but that i do, i just dont know, depending on this next trip to ny on these 265's will make my mind on tire size depending on the gas mileage.......anything worse than 16mpg and im back up to 35's......

thats kind of weird that they are loud at lower speeds, youd think it would be oposite, sound really doesnt concern me though......

Well, Zach, you don't offroad either right now, lol. I definitely wouldn't trade that extra inch of clearance right now, from my perspective.

But for a street rod bigger tires are definitely a pain: more expensive, tend to wear poorly, and have negative consequences on braking, suspension life, etc.

I drive 300 miles a week just to work and back. I have STT's with no problems at all. These are the best riding and driving M/T's I've ever had!

Contradicting how? There's no contradiction here. I won't take off the 35's because I want them for offroading, but I said if I had a street truck like yours I"d go down in size. I've never said 35's aren't hard on our suspensions -- quite the opposite.

So I'm not sure what you're talking about?
