New to the jeep world and wondering if there is pointers out there. Bought my first one this week. Got a 1997 wrangler brand new paint, 3" lift, 32" tires, undercoat, new exhaust, muffler, and rotors. Needs new tires and looking for something that wont drag gas mileage down but will give me more off road advantages than an all terrain tire? I like to look of the cooper discoverer stt. They seem to be almost of a hybrid tire. The groves arent as far apart as the mud terrain but not as close as all terrain. Anyone have experience with these or recommend any?
I have had a couple of sets of BFG A/T's on a few different vehicles and I currently have the old version of Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's on my Jeep. I like the look of the new Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's. They are definitely a hybrid tire. Either/or would be a good match up for what you're probably looking for. Hopefully others will chime in with their opinions on tires, but give these a look. I have no idea what the Cooper's are like.

Exactly this.. It's a very well like tire and is as you said it is basically the middle ground between a true MT and a aggressive AT.. For a weekend warrior 4x4 (Especially in a wintry climate) It doesn't get any better than the Cooper STT.. In regards to a weekend warrior (Especially in a wintry climate) IMO Behind the STT would be the Cooper ST, GY Duratrac, and Nokian Vativia MT.. Witch are all excellent tires also

I have the cooper stt's on my Rubi in a 285/75/16. It's my daily driver and off road it on the weekends. The tires are sipped so that a plus in the rain. The only thing comparable is toyo open country mt and micky thompson mtz. All of those are more than the coopers. The cheapest place to get them is from treddepot.com. Great tire imo.
YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.
IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU'VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.
