Re: Cooper Tires
Ditto, there's a guy named Tex around these ORC forums who is head over heals in love with the Cooper STT.[img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
Personally, I think they are great tires and will buy a set within a year for my Ram. Probably going to go with some 255/85R16 (tall 33"x10R16) S/T's, the "aggressive all terrains" as my driving around tires. In my area (Western Michigan) you don't see nearly as many of the big name (BFG, Goodyear, Dunlop, Bridgestone/Firestone, etc) tires as you do the Coopers. When I was tire shopping for a previous vehicle, the owner of the local tire store told me he didn't even stock the BFG truck tires. It came down to the fact that no one needed the 3 ply sidewall BFG charges so much for around here (offroading is mainly 2 track trails and mud). So why pay so much for a BFG when you can buy a Cooper that will be the same or better than the BFG for onroad, offroad, tire wear, etc?
If I was doing hard core rock crawling, I'd probably go with a BFG MTkm, or the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R. I'm not, so Cooper gets the vote.
