    Thinking of buying some Cooper tyres for my X.
    Has anyone used these tyres before, what about 39x9.5x15 has anyone tried this size.
    Thanx

    I got these(waiting for my body lift to put them on). They are Cooper Discovery STT's in a 32X11.50X15. I hear they wear good and I got a set with 80% tread left for $300 so I couldn' pass them up.

    I have the Cooper S/T tires and LOVE them. They are a great off road tire, although are getting a bit noisy on road. Since they are so aggressive, I figured they would make noise. Check them out here on my pictures site:

    New sizes are coming. That is the new STT... slowly replacing the old STT design. For whatever reason, we still dont have the molds yet for the 33 and 35x12.50's (the most popular sizes :rolleyes: ). Same tire as the old STT, just new design. Supposed to work alot better in mud, and not howl on the street as much after 10k miles.... old STT's get loud as shit after they get worn in. Ive seen some 33x12.50x15's in the new style in the lab...... but yall arent supposed to know that because im not supposed to be in there. ;) :p



    Fourdownunder- We make many different styles of the Discoverer. STT, AT, ST, etc. etc. It all depends on what you are going to use them for the most. I wouldnt run the STT's on a daily driver that would never see offroad..... and i wouldnt run the ATR on a mud bogger. Tell me what type of driving you will be using them for the most and maybe i can help you pick a set.

    Here is the main page to all the Discoverers---
