Best MUD tire by far I have ever run on my Heeps. I have run BFG M/t's, MT/r's and Kumho's just to name a few of the name brands.
Better and quieter on the road then any of the others due to their siping. Far better in the rain and snow.
Off road none of the other tires I mentioned come close to comparing in any situation. The MT/r's might be slightly better in the rocks, but we dont have many rock gardens for me to test that in.
I have 17K on mine now. I will say they get louder with age as most mud tires do. But even after 17K they still are no where near as loud as the MT/r's were.




When these wear out I will be buying another set.

because it is JP magazine.

I like the tires though I have not personally run them. I have seen them only on parked vehicles. But I have thrown a couple around and the weight factor seems to be excellent compared to equal size tires from other manufacturers. I've been wanting to get a set and run them off road to see how they do. But some how I just can't give up the toyos.

Well they are made by Cooper now and very similar to the Discoverer STT... I'll be running a set when I get the lift done in a week or 2.

I've heard great stuff about the coopers.



I've also been hearing great things about the maxxis big horn radials.

from what my friend said - you can see 40-50k on a set of STT's with mild trail usage.

So I could get 40-50 out of 4 or 5 sets of tires.
