Tires going by way too fast.

MY 35 inch Cooper's are going by way to quick. They're 25% gone and they only have 2,000 miles on them. WTH?

I don't punch it that often, but do get on it. I have been mudding in them alot as well.

I need a 35 inch tire that is made for the road. Which tire do you guys recommend to me?

Toyos last a long time for a mt. I've got about 40k on mine and I think I could get another 10k out of them.

Aren't the Cooper STT and Toyo MT cast from the same mold? My buddy has 25k on his STT's and they are still half tread?

Gotta make sure what ever you get is not a soft rubber tire because as much as our trucks weigh, all that weight is the #1 thing that wears out tires the fastest besided the go pedel!

How wide are your wheels? What's the exact year, make, and model of your truck?

I'm pretty sure they are.

Either way, I'd say you most likely have a problem, something on your truck is causing them to wear way too fast. Are they cupping really easy/quick? What PSI are you running them at? Tierods good?

My mom ran 2 sets of 35" STTs on her 06 and got right at 40k out of both sets, I believe one set lasted just under 40k and the last set lasted right around 42k miles. My dad has a set of 37" STTs on his 79 F150 with about 5k miles or so that still look brand new.

I had the Dick Cepek FC IIs on my last truck and loved them after these claws wear out I will most likely get another set of the FC IIs
