Re: pressure

Which Cooper Discoverer are you running?
A/T...S/T...STT...H/T...M+S?

I've been running my MT/R's (33/12.5/15) at 26-27psi.
32psi was HORRIBLE.
That's for general commuting in town, and more ICE than snow. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
It's been awfully danged warm lately though! [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
Most of the snow is gone already. [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

I did manage to get on some trails before it melted, and ran at 24psi for that.
Tires did way better than I had expected.
Good flotation, and the truck went exactly where I pointed it.
Certainly a major departure from the old BFG-AT's.
Which reminds me, I better post some pics of that adventure.
Made it to the top of our local ski area. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: pressure

I keep mine always set to normal pressure. I run swamper tsl radials On ice though my truck is like a big skate it slides all over the place. So considering I live in VA , I really dont worry.

cooper tires

Cooper tires are getting some compliments over on the 4X4 general forum (cooper vs BFGs), i also have heard nothing but good things about those tires, i think that will be my next set of tires, but may be awhile as my Mickeys wear hard!

Re: cooper tires

Actually, NO i didnt [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]. Obviously MT contracts other manufacturers for their products but i didnt know who made their tires. That explains why they wear so long, most of coopers tires have an excellent tread wear rating.

These MT/MTXs are really nice on the highway, but my next set of tires is gonna be bigger &amp; more aggressive. Its going to be a tough call between Bridgestone Dueler Mud Ts &amp; COOPERS SSTs [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: pressure

Ahh, yes! Today i was at work, and i was thinking.....'i wonder how wd40's tires are doing?' I know, strange thing to be thinking while at work, but.....well.....i just cant help it! [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]


I was not aware that Cooper made MT's! Do they make all of them, or just the radial tires?
