I like the way these look! Didn't even think about using cooper tires. I'm needing to get a set myself soon. why did you decide to get these instead of the DISCOVERER S/T MAXX or DISCOVERER STT?

Ohhh I know I know.. TJ and load range E tires don't work to well together even if the ATP is a mid grade all terrain with a 2ply side wall and the ST Maxx is a aggresive at with a very strong 3ply sidewall. It's a ballance of desire that being ride quality vs tire tougness/offroad traction..

If I was't going offroad the atp would be right at the top of my list for tires to buy

^^ wow he pretty much nailed it. the st line is to aggressive ( read very heavy). and by comparison these tires are a 285/70r17 and weight in at 49lbs a piece.
the factory rubicons are a 255/75r17 and weight 48 lbs a piece.
factory wheel is 27lbs
my wheel is 25 lbs.

i lost 4lbs of rotational mass and one pound off the tailgate. compared to a rubicon i had the sra wrangler crap. and my gas milage is currently unaffected. i was going to go with falkens but in this size they are 61lbs a piece. can you say 12mpg in town. thats a hell of a way to save 10 bucks a tire.

Meh just keep those sidwalls away from impact when you can.. As far as traction goes If the trails are dry enough you won't have any issue with them. And per their class the ST Maxx will be heavier then others in the Agressive AT class due to there heavy duty (durable) 3ply sidewall. It's also why the Falkens are heavier.. The STT falls right into the same general weight as tires in the mud terrain class. Also said "TJ" in my one post but that was just a typo, I know you have a JK

Figured it was time i updated this. and i have taken these tires everywhere. they lack traction in mud but its not a mud terrain tire. on dry to moist stuff i have yet to be left behind because of traction. in loose dirt they excel to. fantastic tire even in the rocks. i have 16k miles on them and i am very happy. xjnight you maybe be right about why the muds are heavier and falkens having a 3 ply side wall. thats fine but with my rims being rock rashed to hell i will tell you these tires are plenty strong. and lets not forget they are a load range E. they still flex enough when aired down. compared to the falkens my buddy is running and at 11psi each i get much better flex.
