In the market for some new 33"s

So I need some new 33"s to go on my new shiney rims I just ordered. I'm pretty torn between kumho kl71's and cooper stt's. I need a nice agressive tire tread w/siping. Anyone have any good experiences with other tires meeting those specs?

33"x12.5"x15

Oh yeah, the rims. Nothing special.

I got STT's, I love em. They ride really well for a mud tire also balanced great. Good on wet roads and in the mud. I've heard some people say they aren't loud but mine are.

I had the old style on my last truck. I like the improvements on the new ones. My old ones were loud too but I think it's b/c I didn't rotate them.

Yeah I was checking out the beads made by equal to try on this set of rims/tires. Both sites say I need 8 ounces. Is that 8oz per tire or total??

i dunno....i got them, but i couldn't find them when they were mounting the wheels so i just used regular valve cores........then i found them in the floor board when i was backing my truck out of the shop...i haven't had a problem with the regular cores yet......so i wouldn't waste your money on the special cores...
