Should I trade my Coopers for TSL's?

I may have an opportunity to trade my stock steel wheels w/Cooper Discoverer 31x10.5x15 STT's for same size Mickey Thompson Classic II w/TSL Super Swampers of same age and mileage.

I wheel in mud, rocks, sand, forest trails, prairie trails etc at least once a week. My highway driving is nominal. I have a 2004 TJ, 5 speed, 2.4 with 2" lift and stock 4:11's. The Jeep is my DD and I live in Chicago so snow is a given..

Whats your thoughts on this trade? Here are the pics of both

TSL and Rims to be traded????

If it were me, I'd trade.
If you don't like the TSL's, you can always sell them off, and get new tires.
Those MT Classic rims look nice! And, I've never really liked any of the stock rims...

I wouldn't....your STT's are a better all around tire and will drive better and last longer. And the classic II wheels are not a forged wheel, therefore not strong

I've heard that tsl are horrible on road and wear extremly fast. I'd stick with what you have now.
