Discoverer STT's. I'd say try to get some 32's. IMO 31's look cool but don't fill it up enough.

Yeah I looked at them and they're about the same price for 16x7's.

So Id definately rather have procomp

But I can't find the 5x4.5 bolt pattern for the 16x7s anywhere..has anyone?

can i ask why you are getting 16x7? there are way more tires available if you get 15" rim, FYI

^what he said. not to mention the fact that 9 times outta 10 the 15" tire will be cheaper than a like sized 16" tire.

I have some spare 16x7 rims and tires that I don't use since I got new rims and tires. Let me know if you are interested in buying them.

If you've got a 98+ 4x4, you dont want a 31"....soooo small looking. get 32x11.50r15 on 15x8's.

You want differnet? put car tires on it.

I have to get 16x7 because that's i'm just replacing my wheels not my wheels and tires both. I have 31" Kumho A/Ts on the stock 16x7 but I don't have enough money to get new tires as well..

Cooper ST = good

I have had 2 sets of Cooper St's and they are a surpisingly good combo tire for both highway and mud, good treadlife AND good mud traction.

i was thinking that by looking at the pics. they are slightly more open than bfg a/t, and those are good in mud so it all equals out...do you recomend them to me?

I like the STT's, but it all depends on how much you drive on the road or off-road.

I saw a set of S/T's today and they looked pretty sharp.

I would get them if you are going to be on the road a majority of the time.
