New Member! Need MT tire help!

Hey Guys!

I just recently purchased my first Jeep and I am looking for a little input regarding a few different MT tires that I have narrowed my decision down to. My primary concern is off road control while also being as quiet as possible on road (I understand there will be road noise as I am getting a MT tire but I am looking to get the quietest tire amongst the 3 to keep the lady happy)

My choices are:
Cooper Discoverer STT Pro
Toyo Open Country
Nitto Trail Grappler

With price not being a issue, what would you guys say is the best off road tire while also providing the least amount of road noise. Hopefully there are some users here who have experience using all 3

All input is welcome!

I had the same choices as you have and I ended up getting the Cooper discoverer stt pro's. Love them so far.

Another option to look at is the dick cepek extreme country's I recently put these on my tj and am very happy with them. Coming from duratracs I can't notice any difference in road noise.The extreme country's are very quiet for a MT

I think that the noise comes the tread pattern on the tire. You'll get a "lot" (relative term) of noise on pavement with mud tires. If you want a "quiet" ride, look into Pro Comp All Terrain (AT Sport). I heard that they are quiet.

I have Mickey Thompson ATZ myself. They are "quiet" but my wheels stick out about 2 inches from the stock fender flares so that does add to the noise especially when you accelerate but its not terrible or unbearable even with windows down.

I've been very happy with my Toyo Open Country MTs. I like the fact that they're really capable off road but are pretty quiet on the street and highway.

I haven't owned the others, but i dont think you can go wrong with any of your choices.

+1 for Cooper STT Pros. Great so far on and off road.

Talking

I have been leaning towards the Cooper's from the start due to the shear difference in weight and also with the assumption that they are also equally as quiet as the other 2.

Is there anyone who has riden on both or maybe even all 3 that can comment on road noise? Would love a good comparison between the 3!

Thanks guys

I have trail grapplers and love them but my only other comparison is goodyear Mt tires. You can hear them with the windows down but windows up I have to have the blower turned off the radio off and no conversation

while not an M/T the Toyo R/T does really well on and off road.

Toyos have very little road noice. However, Toyo and Nitto are very heavy tires. This will cause the Jeep to be more sluggish as well as cause more wear and tear on parts. If least amount of noise is the main priority The Toyo are going to make the least amount of noise. Out of your list, I would personally choose the STT Pro, a bit more noise than the Toyo, but lighter weight.

I previously had the Mastercraft MXT (made by Cooper) and it was very quiet/smooth for an MT. It was lightweight. It also performed well off road.

2016 jku with Stt pros

1999 cherokee with stt pros

2005 diesel Excursion with stt pros

Very happy with all. They have a unique tread block design that's pretty aggressive but quite quiet. Way quieter than toyo mt's but not as quiet as Toyo open country at's.

18k on the excursion set amd I tow with it often, the still look 85%.

The jku has 315 70 17 and they're E rated. My wife thinks they're great. Even at 32 psi they're softer than the C rated Goodyear MTR's we had on it.

I think they're phenomenal in sand or snow, I have not been in mud or rocks.

The STT's are definitely what I am leaning towards! Thanks for the feedback everyone.
