Cooper Discoverer STT Pro

I just got a new set today in 35 12.5 15 and so far am pretty impressed. I was going to get KM2's or MTR's (I have had both before and prefer the BFG's) but they are all on national backorder. So far these seem a lot quieter than my old MTR's that fell victim to Mt Blanca a couple weeks ago.....Taking off-road soon will re-post after testing. I could find very few reviews on these online since they just came out 06/01/15.........anyone else running these?

Those do look good. I might try those on my Defender considering how much I love the S/T Maxx I've got on the Classic.

I was very impressed w/ the Classic and the S/T Maxx tires on Blanca! But I do think you are getting soft...........

There is no doubt I'm getting soft. The Classic is just too comfortable. I'm going to have to hit the road in the Defender again just to remind myself what it is like and to sympathize with you.

The LWB needs new shoes, 235/85's again, theCooper STT is at the top of the list. It would be nice if the Nitto Trail Grappler had more sizing options

I'm running the ST Maxx on the 94 Classic. Smooth and quiet.

I honestly don't know how well they handle mud. We don't have much of that out where I've been wheeling. I will say they handle Moab slick rock and the slippery wet granite that can be found in Colorado quite well.

I'm interested in hearing how Todd likes the STT Pro and whether he will find some mud to try them out in.

Went camping (Starlight Canyon/US Hill area aka Stevo Canyon) over the weekend and did some tire testing. Aired them down to 18 and then did quite well in the mud and hooked up really well on rocks. Seemed to rid of mud very quickly. More extensive sand and rock testing this weekend on the old Stagecoach Trail...............Abel you and Timmy still coming up for HH on Friday?

I figured they'd perform well in mud. I'm not sure about Stagecoach. I may be all Rovered out for awhile. Rio Chama week before last and Ouray last week. Just got home on Sunday and am enjoying some couch time.

I know the D90 needs some action come on man! Stagecoach has not been run in 10+ years so I expect lots of erosion and less shotguns..............I met the girl over the weekend she is really cool for a Suazo!

This could be one of my last hurrah's before my "busy season" (football) starts................

My brother stumbled across this thread (and forwarded to me) while searching the Cooper STT Pro's for his F150, which has towed my 110 on more than one occasion.






About 3k miles on them; big fan of these so far.
