    Is anyone here running Cooper STTs?? I know that they shoud be good off-road, but I want to know how they are ON the road. Are they loud and do they ride good?? Any help would be great. I am looking for a 265/75/16 tire that is as aggressive as I can get and still have good road manners.
    Thanks.

    I agree nice looking truck.Maybe they changed the tread pattern or something but the tires I seen on LJACKSONS photo gallery dont look like STTs to me, but a different Cooper product.I liked the looks of the STTs but one tire dealer told me they didn`t make the size I wanted.I had a hard time believing this because Cooper listed my size on their web.site.No offense please LJACKSON, but I didn`t care for the tread pattern on the tires you have because it looked to me like they would leave a imprint that resembles a little (infant?) scrotum track.Nice Bike too by the way.

    LJackson is NOT running the same tires that I'm talking about, but I thought that he knew that and was giving a review on the Coopers that he does run. The STTs are much more agressive than his.

    ok, i just found the stt's here....

    http://www.coopertires.com.au/tyres/stt_new.htm

    i was thinkin of the wrong tire..... here is all of them:
    http://www.coopertire.com/Flash/index.aspx

    i was thinkin of the st-c's when you said stt's.... the -c's are a little more aggressive looking than mine, but look like the exact same tread, maybe it goes further down the sidewall than on mine....

    and yes, i was rating mine because i thought you were talking about the -c's that are very close to mine.

    the stt's do look awesome! and no offence taken, we all have our own likes/dislikes, that is why we all have diff. mods and our trucks are unique!!!

    OK, so I've decided to go with Mickey Thompson MTZs in a 265/75/16. I've been reading tire reviews till I'm almost blind and reviews for this very aggressive tire are actually quite favorable for on-road driving. We shall see.

    Anybody have these??

    well i am running cooper stt on my truck , all i can say is that they do not hardly make any noise on the road , and they have that agressive look that i was looking for with out the noise ,i also was checking out the m.thompsons but for the price i think the cooper were cheeper and also they make less noise than the mickeys .:cool: mine are 285/70-17
