Cooper Discoverer ST Maxx

I live in Reno, NV and your tire chain is popping up everywhere in town!!! I was hoping to get a price quote for a set of Cooper Discoverer ST Maxx tires in 275/70R18.

What do you think of this tire? I'm wanting to keep the stock size as I went bigger on my last set of Toyo MTs which were heavy son guns....

I do mostly highway driving but also like to get out into the mountains to bird hunt and deer hunt. Do they do well on snow too?

Thanks!!!

Thank you for the post NVHunter. I'm glad to see more and more stores are opening up in your area.

The ST Maxx is a solid tire and does well in all conditions including light snow. Tell us a little more about your driving though. How many miles are you typically driving per year? Besides weight, what were your likes and dislikes with your Open Country M/T tires? What size were you previously running? What do you want your next set of tires to do for you? I assume this set is for your 08 F350?

Well, I do a lot of highway driving. I have a set of Conti Tracs I use for summer time with no snow and minimal off road use.

I'm looking at the ST Maxx for a fall winter tire to use for hunting (Northern Nevada has a ton of hard sharp rock in its dirt roads) and to use when it's snowed.

We get maybe a few decent snow storms a year and the mts worked great. I had 285/75R18 in the Toyo MT for my last hunting/ winter tire.

I liked them but they were expensive! $326 each tire is too much, plus they were heavy and I could notice a drop in power and mph.

I want to stay with the stock size to try and maintain better mileage and less wear and tear on my truck.

I put 10,000 to 15,000 miles a year on the truck and tow a 20 travel trailer with it.

Thanks for the quick response.

Mike

Thank you for the additional information.

The ST Maxx is a great option for your needs. As you have probably read, the ST Maxx utilizes Cooper's heavy duty 3-ply Armor Tek3 carcass which will help protect the tire against the off-road terrain you frequent. The 275/70-18 ST Maxx is 11lbs lighter when compared to your current Toyo M/T tires so you should see an improvement in MPG. Exactly how much is hard to say but the lighter weight combined with switching back to the OE tire size should help. This model typically lasts 30K to 40K miles on HD truck applications so if you will be running these tires two season out of the year you can expect many years of service

For pricing you'll need to contact your closest Discount Tire to see what they can do for you. Right now we are running a Labor Day promotion that will save you a good chunk of money. Here's the link with more details.
