The "Other" 35x12.5 tires?

I am in search of new tires and have narrowed the search down to most likely Toyo MT 35x12.5x20. I have seen everyone talk about Toyo MT BFG and Pro Comp. But I havent heard much on the outcasts.

What are peoples thoughts on Cooper Discovery STT. They a less aggressive MT pattern like the Toyo MT and they are at least $60 a tire cheaper.

Also they are more of a "Novelty" tire I would say but what about Interco SS-M16s They have just released a 35x12.5x20 tire so I havent seen them for sale anywhere yet so I have no price comparison for them.

I would certainly not say that Coopers are a novelty tire. The rubber on the STT is a little softer then the Toyo but they chew real hard in the mud. I had them on an F150 and loved them for off roading. They were a little louder then my BFG though.

Sorry I was meaning the SS-M16s being a novelty tire since they have bullets on the side of them. Novelty like Nitto Dune Grapplers are Flames for tread, and the MUdd Grapplers are Dinosaur claws.

Too bad I wasnt in GA a few months earlier I would have taken them off your hands for a something close to that? I will be down there in July but will have needed tires way before then.
