These look solid, and the price is very reasonable! I'll see how these perform for the guinea pigs and keep them on my list for when the duratracs wear out

MTP Cooper Discoverer

The tires arrived on Friday last week, but with the subzero temps I have not been able to do much work on the jeep. Adamm at Discount Tire was great. He is a fellow jeep junkie and provided me with extra info for a novice like myself. He steered me to the MTP Tires because they were a better fit for my needs than my original idea on tires and wheels. I could not be happier. He helped me save roughly $600 (more adds to the jeep now lol).

I purchased the 315/70R17. Weight is about 62lbs. They look great and aggressive. I it scheduled to break to about 5 degrees on Saturday so the plan is to put them on then. I added pictures for others to see as there are barley and pictures on the web.

I'm eyeballing these. Are there any reviews on how they perform, construction, specifications, etc.?

For the prices, i have seen these seem like THE deal, but I wanted to see how they stack up to other tires in this size and price range.

My only beef with them is the price. There are multiple versions of this tire. Dick Cepek Extreme Country, Mastercraft Courser MXT, etc. These MTPs are priced much higher than the other versions.

For that matter, MANY tires have skyrocketed in cost on DTD's website over the last 30 to 60 days. What's up with that?

This tire is new to the market so there are limited "real world" reviews to report. From what I've read on a few other boards people are pleased with the overall ride quality and handling.

I'll also add that in addition to the specifications outlined in the OP, the MTP uses 2-ply sidewall construction. It also utilizes a silca enriched compound and variable depth sipes for improved wet weather performance.

At a glace, I can see how they look similar but side by side they look different. I did a quick price comparison (285/75R-16) and the models you noted were typically $30.00 higher in total price after delivery when compared to the MTP. We also guarantee the lowest out the door price on all the products we carry. If a competitor has a cheaper advertised out the door price, we'll beat

Just saw these on your website today and was interested in them, are they built on the same 2 ply carcass as the DC extreme country's or the carcass the st maxx are built on (based on my research they are different)?

I ended up going with 305/70r17 BFG KM2s.

It came down to size. I wanted a smaller tire than 35", but bigger than 33". The 34" seems perfect. I don't plan on re-gearing in the future. The 3.73 should be enough.

I should classify that: I don't plan on re-gearing in the 'near' future. Who knows, what a couple of years from now holds.

Our apologies for the late reply, HunterTheBeagle.

The ST Maxx utilizes Coopers 3-ply Tek 3 construction. I'm not sure if the MTP uses the same construction as the Extreme Country, but it is 2-ply construction.

So the MTP's have 2 ply or 3 ply sidewall ??
I'll be looking to upgrade my K02's from 33's to 35's, and the MTP's are $20 cheaper than K02's, but i really want a 3 ply sidewall tire

The Cooper Discoverer MTP tire features a 2 ply sidewall.

Please let us know how we can help.

No problem DT thanks for getting back, Ill have to do some research.

Here is what Dick Cepek calls their 2 ply in the extreme country,

Per their website "Two-Ply Next Generation High Tensile (HT) Body Ply Cord" Sounds like it could be the same.

Edit: just saw your other post so 3 ply it is haha thanks

Regardless sure is a good price on these new coopers!

Sorry for the confusion, HunterTheBeagle. The 3-ply mention above was a typo. As stated earlier, the MTP uses 2-ply construction.

Cooper Discoverer MTP product video added to the OP. Make sure to check it out!

For those curious, the JK utilized for this video was equipped with 17x8.5 (4.5-inch BS) DX4 Tuff wheels. See the link below for details on DX4 wheels.

I haven't seen any first hands reviews from this site yet, but I have on a few other boards we support. Consensus is the tires ride extremely smooth and have a slight hum at highway speeds.

Not on a Wrangler, unfortunately. Here's one on an FJC and another on an Xterra.

Interested to know how they ride on road and how much noise they make. Only time will tell how well they resist cupping.

I love my MTR/K's, they're beast off-road, but they're loud as all get out and need to be rotated every 2k miles before cupping badly.
