Cooper DISCOVERER STT?

Saw these on several Jeeps at an event today. A couple of guys swear by them. Anyone know how these compare to TOYO Open Country M/Ts? Regarding wear, noise level and rut tracking on the Hwy?

They are not going to compare. IMO the Toyo is one of the best tires made.
The only 2 places the STT will be better would be in weight savings. The toyo is a VERY heavy tire. The STT is also A LOT cheaper then a Toyo.

In my mind its really not an apples to apples comparison.

STT's also wont run as many miles as the Toyo's.

I run the stt's in a 33x12.50. Coming from procomp x terrains that wewre on my jeep when i bought they are lot smoother and quieter. As far as offroad traction i think they are great. Grip well in the mud and clean decent and bite great on the rocks when aired down to 15psi. Tread wear i decent also, have about 18k on them and they are at 16/32s.

Yeh, dont get me wrong I think the STT is a good tire, especially for the price point. It's just not on par with the high end tires, like the toyo


Also, you mispelled Discoverer in you sig line

Not sure what your "trip" is Scoob or Scoobie... or whatever...but this thread is about comparing tires not your weak attempt at trying to correct someone's spelling. The thread title was copied and pasted directly from Cooper's web site and was never misspelled. Admit it... you're an Idiot, and you have the distinct honor of being the first and only person I've ever added to an "ignore list".

Ouch. Scoob, at least you're a proper Idiot, capitalized and all, instead of being a run-of-the-mill idiot... That way, it's kind of like a title. jkjk

Ya... I was probably a little harsh on him. His post just hit me wrong.

OMG, lighten up Francis.

Re-read the post again and try to comprehend what's going on this time.

I quoted Rubicon05 in a reply to his post. If you will look at his signature line he has Cooper Discoverers listed but he had misspelled the name.
Which is why I wrote
Quote:
Also, you misspelled Discoverer in you sig line
He saw my post and fixed it.


Not sure what your trip is, but I am happy to be on your ignore list

no mention of BFGs or Goodyear surprises me. Toyo? better than Goodyear or BFG? some one will have to prove that one to me. I got well into the 50,000 mile range and wanted larger tires, then the Goodyears came off ( 245 75 16s ) and put the BFGs on (285 55 16's) I will get 50,000 out of them as well. I considered Coopers, but they have a reputation of only lasting 25,000 to 35,000 miles.

I'm bumping this post since I was part of the tangent that made this thread all crazy, and because I plan on getting BFG's. I'd love some input on Toyo's vs BFG's.

Bothe the toyos and the cooper stt's have a very strong thick sidewall in them. The Bfg's are great tires but if if you see a tire on the trail that has a cut sidewall the odds are its a bfg.

I've got to say, I've seen the Cooper's on a Jeep and they look great on it, I test drove a Jeep with them on and it wasn't bad at all. I was actually going to replace my tires with them when my current ones wore out.

Trail only then Toyo's will be great. If you drive on pavement then don't waist your time. I have had two sets and my buddy is on his second set and niether one of us can get more than 22,000 out of them and they are completely bald at that point.

IMO the STT is a far far far superior tire to a toyo, gy, or a stinkin BFG. I have had 4 sets in the last few years. The first set is on my beater truck (1990 F350 with 35's...16K on them and they still look new), second is on my dads old jeep (93 with 33's...8500 on them and perfect), third on my ex's truck (wore them out at 40K, but it was a 700 horse diesel and heavy), last set is on another truck I did and sold. They perform in snow and mud flawlessly as well.

I was watching Jeeps in the rocks at the Bantam Jeep festival last week and saw a lot of Rubis on BFG KM2s stuggle in the rocks. I have open diffs and walked through the rocks with my STTs only having to spin the tires a little one time. I had my heart set on the BFGs, but man am I glad the were on back order. I am continually impressed with my STTs.

Now the krawler BFG's (blue lables) are a different story and I pretty sure those would do better than STT's. Those are rock tires but the km2 are more an all round tire. Now the Krawler (red lable) which are a sticky comp tires would diffently beat the stt's.

I'm reading consistent comments on various tire/wheel sales (on-line) about them being hard to balance. Anyone had issues with that?

I wouldn't wanna see the price of them. I know the price of blues but I have never seen the price of reds.
