Cooper Radial M/T Mud Claws... Good Tires???

Just like the title asks, are the Cooper Radial M/T Mud Claw tires good or not?

I'm mostly looking for an aggressive tire. I'm mostly on the road but some light off road here and there. They are already on the wheels I'm planning on getting locally. The tires I have now are old and the tread isn't that great.

Could use any advice. Thanks

No experience with the Mud Claws, but Cooper makes some damn good tires. I can't imagine any major issues with them.

Since I'm "mostly" on the street and rarely ever off road (but would like to do SOME off roading), would getting an MT tire be a bad decision?

I'm finishing up my last year of school up in Utah so snow, salt, heat, and rain should be taken into account.

i've seen em in person, but know 1st hand experience. from looking at them, I'd say they're decent in the dirt and on pavement, but in snow/ice they would suck.

If you are mostly pavement but the occasional off-road then a full on M/T like those Coopers might not be very practical. What you might want is either an aggressive A/T or a moderate M/T. More tire manufacturers are coming out with offerings like these such as the:

Cooper makes Mickey Thompsons which is what I'm running. Love'em. Even in the Canadian winters. Those wouldn't be horrible in winter, they do have some siping on them. Just play nice in cold weather and you'll be fine.

Thanks for all the advice everyone. A set just popped up locally and I'm still considering whether to pull the trigger or not.
