Cooper Discoverer STT's?

Anyone tried these? They are very similar to the Toyo MT's but I can get them quite a bit cheaper. They are E rated also, so thats a plus. Thinking of running the 325/65R18 on either Moto Metal 951's or Diamo 17 karat's.

I had toyo mt's on my last truck (Awesome tires) I have a set of stt's on this truck and they are almost as good. They aren't very loud for a mud tire and they last forever. They are a harder compound and therefore aren't awesome in snow but i would not hesitate to by another set before the toyo's. They are like half the price.

Thats true about the snow, but the harder compound should be better when towing my 5th wheel. Were you able to try both the MT's and the STT off road?

They are pretty much the same for the offroading i do. The toyo's were a little better in the deep stuff though. Probably because of the bigger side lugs!!

I'm looking at tires as well.....and I really like the Toyo M/T's but they are so expensive!!! I've been looking at the new BFG mud terrains, but my buddy at discount tire told me about this STT and he said all the oil field guys swear by them, they last forever and are cheap!!.....I'm seriously thinking about getting them

if you want a tire with the Toyos quality but save $$$$$ go with the STT's..

i am actually running them on my truck right now. they are pretty much EXACTLY like toyo open country M/T's for way cheaper.
i have 35x13.50x20, they also come in a 12.50" that size too.

they are a good tire, but i think i will go back to the nitto mud grapplers again next time. The coopers have smaller lugs and they hold way too many rocks in the tread and throw it up at the paint.
only benefit over the nittos is that the coopers are much quieter running down the road.

edit: and the nittos wore well, i got close to 30K and i drove them hard, they were excelent off road, i go four wheeling often, and the nitto's are also load rated "E"
