cooper discoverer stt

I have purchased a set of Cooper Discoverer STT's this past October. I was running Geolander HT's and I was extremely disappointed with them. I bought my truck last February with them on. Being one of the most unpredictable months of the year up here in the northeast, it snowed shortly after and they handled horrible in the snow/slushy conditions. Even with fourwheel drive I still managed to slide in a mere two inches of snow. I made the decision to not run those tires again for this winter. I have always wanted to run a set of Cooper tires ever since I started driving. From previously read reviews, they seemed like a well fit tire for all road conditions. An added bonus would have to be the look of the tire itself. Since the STT's are a mud terrain tire, they handle very well on any road condition whether it be snow, sleet, rain, or ice. I have not experienced any problems with them. The only con of having these tires would be the noise. Mud tires generally have a hum to them, but if it doesn't bother you, these tires may be for you. I would love to hear any responses from other Cooper tire owners if they have similar experiences.

Cooper is one of the most underrated tire manufacturers in the industry, particularly in the truck/SUV market.

I run the Discoverer AT3's, particularly because I live in sunny San Diego and don't typically see much more than a dirt trail. With that said, the STT is a sick tire. The price is right, too.

You sound like you know what you're in for. Rock those Coopers proudly.

Just curious, which national tire chain carries Cooper.
I cant decide between Duratracs and ST Maxx.

NTB?
Sears/Firestone?

I might try the Mastercraft AXT. If they are 1/2 as good as the STR this should be good.

Mistaare it depends on what ur looking for the duratrac seems to me like its more of a mud tire. Where the ST maxx is more of an aggressive all terrain tire

Thats what I am looking for, either an aggressive AT or a mild MT. I have now thrown KM2's into the mix.

I am pretty disappointed the traction of my BFG AT's. Need something I can load the bed up with firewood, towing a trailer full of firewood, or pack up the family with off road teardrop and not worry about soft sidewalls, slushy snow, or slick mud. I got 40,000 miles on BFG and close to 20,000 of them were "loaded down" on the highway, exploring a few mountain passes of Colorado, logging roads, access roads and/or fire roads. Trust me, the logging and access roads are moderate (by off-roading/wheeling standards) 4x4 roads, not accessible via car.
