cooper s/t tires

Postby mattm25tx » Tue Jan 13, 2009 11:28 pm

I just ordered a set of them in 265/75/16 e load range has anyone ran them what should I expect. They are replacing bridgestone dueler a/t revos I know it is a step down from the revos I just couldnt drop A $grand right now for tires.

They look beefy enough

I think you'll be very impressed with them. The tread is very aggressive on them, but from the few I know who have run them they are still good on the road. I don't know that I would call them a step down. They might be cheaper but they are still a great tire.

Got about 5,000 mi on them so far and I really like them and would recomend them to anyone. Handle good on the highway very good off road and in wet weather and icy conditions. Seem to be wearing very good too.

best all-around tires I have been able to find. The noise reduction alone should make you extremely happy. they are very quiet on the highway.

I just had some 33x12.50s put on the dodge and I like them so far. I was going to get the STT but the guy at the cooper place said that the oilfield guys were running them but switched to the ST because the were getting better wear and mileage out of them. So I went with his advice, the were also 45 dollars a piece cheaper. :thumbsup:

Unless you're rock-crawling or mud-bogging the S/Ts should do everything you need them to :thumbsup:

I am looking for the same size tire for my baby Hummer H3, I want a tire that is decent enough in the mud occasionally when I deer hunt. Is the cooper St that tire?

You might be better off with the STT. The S/T is what I would call an aggressive All-Terrain, but when you take it into the mud it is just going to cake up. The STT should still wear pretty well (40k+ on a full-size truck) and will outperform the S/T offroad day in and day out.

Well the STT's look great, a tad noisier than the Goodyear wranglers I had on there. I think I am going to put on some more less agrresive tires until bow season starts and then put the coopers back on, I am afraid they will wear down too quickly. They will be fun to slap on October 1, -Jann.15. and then right back on with the less agressive tires. That will keep the STT in good shape for the next five years, hunting seasons. But man they look good.

I had coopers on my 2500hd and IMO they were junk. the wet / slippery traction was worse than any tire I have ever run and the mud traction was not much better. I have run goodyear AT that were 100% better on ice and snow and even better in the mud. I just got rid of the coopers and put on toyo's AT's and they are night and day difference. better ride, Quieter and outstanding traction on icy roads. Again this is just what I experienced, I even had a NEW spare that now sits in my garage and I bought a brigstone dualer on a wheel for $45 to use as a spare, to me the cooper is not even worthy of hanging under the truck as a spare. Mine were 285/75-16's and went about 25,000 miles ( rotated every 8000 and pressure kept at 60psi ) before the sidewalls started to crack (dry rot)

I do remember hearing that Cooper did have a pretty bad batch of tires that weren't worth a crap in terms of wear or anything else. I have heard they since resolved that issue.

I don't remember exactly what years it was but that sounds about right, I want to say I was thinking around 2003.

Wish I would have known you were looking. I would gladly sell my 305/70/16 Cooper ST's. They have around 5k miles on them (maybe) I drive a wrecker and the truck only gets driven a couple of times a month. They are great tires on the road but I am use to Boggers and LTB's in the mud......no comparisson.
