    Time for new tires, my 2 options are

    LT315/70R17/D Kelly Safari TSR BSL 121Q TL for $163.56 per tire

    or

    33X12.50R17LT/D Cooper Discoverer STT OWL 114Q TL for $223.37 per tire

    which should I go for? Pros/Cons? I need something functional when i'm offroad but will last longer as its also my daily driver. My Mickey Thompsons had HORRIBLE life as far as pavement is concerned

    I have cooper ST's on my 99 land cruiser and have been quite happy with them. They do well on snow and ice and the couple trips to Moab they held up well on some pretty sharp rocks. I have 50,000 miles on them and they still have a good amount of tread left on them. Of course the STT have a more aggressive tread so they might wear quicker. I have the Safari's on my 05 four door taco and after 4000 miles I'm quite happy with them. Read my review in this forum.

    We also run the kelly's on our 3/4 ton chevy crew cab work trucks (ski area). They do really good when it gets sloppy during the mud season.
