Cooper ST Maxx 275/70r18
 
Picked up some new shoes for the lady today. These fit like they were made for a Jeep.

Will post up some pics later today.

Ok, here are the photos. May 1 is the deadline for when we have to remove our studded tires. So, I picked these up. So far I'm impressed. They are very quiet for a mud tire/all-terrain hybrid. They also ride softer than my BFGs do.

Haven't had them in the dirt yet, but that'll come shortly. Also, since they are a 275, they are only 11 inches wide which should reduce the hit on gas mileage, and they fit without rubbing on my stock rims.

Very nice, Cooper makes great tires. The Duratracs seem to have taken quite a "first mover" advantage in this hybrid AT/MT space but I suspect over the long haul the ST Maxx will come to be another favorite in that market.

Is that a 33" tire

Per Cooper's website they should measure 33.4 inches tall. I haven't put a tape on them, but they are noticeably taller than my 285/65r18 BFGs.

Any issues with rubbing.

They look great!

Look good, too bad they are load range E, way to heavy duty a tire for a Wrangler.

Great for avoiding flats, and the difference between an E and a C load range isn't all that noticeable to me. I like running an E range tire.

Looks great! I really like it!

My 10th Anniversary Rubicon came with E load tires, KM2's! Can't be all that bad.

Great looking tires! Thanks for the pics

Have run 35s in a load E and many load range Cs. I think it depends more on the tire than the load range. You don't really feel a difference between the same AT tire in an E or C but you do between the same with an MT.

Thanks for the compliments.

They don't rub on the road. I'll get them off road this,weekend, but I don't expect any rubbing. I also have the Rancho 2 inch Sport Lift installed.

These are an E load rating, but I find them to be softer than the D rated BFG ATs that I ran all winter.
