    Yes, I ran a set of 33 x 12.5 x 15 for about 3 years on a dd that also saw mud, snow, rain and ice. Overall I think I'ts a pretty good tire for what you want but you would want to cut siping in them to improve the wet pavement traction, same for hard ice.
    They were long wear and pretty quite on the hwy.

    I have Cooper ST's on my DD crewcab right now and like them alot. They wear well and work great in mud and rain. I will be getting them again for my next set.

    Thanks for the opinions guys.


    The ST is what the tire shop was trying to push on me, but I think I'll go with the STT instead.

    Any particular reason? The S/Ts look a little more aggresive to me, but the difference is minimal. My next set is going to be 265/70R17s S/Ts. 3100lb load rating per tire!

    I like the tread design and sidewall of the STT. It looks like it should do fairly well in the mud.



    Is this the one you have?

    I have the S/T on my tow rig/DD and it looks a little more aggressive than that pic. I have a 315/75/16 and i like it.

    I was at the tire shop yesterday getting tires put on my work car and I was looking at the STT's while I waited. Tread designe is somewhat similar to the Krawler's I have but definately has more siping. 3ply sidewall .

    Looks like something I wouldn't mind running on more of a DD. Guy at the shop whom I have known for several years says he is really impressed with them and pointed to the ones on his truck. His shop carries several brands including Michelin, BFG, Goodyear, Cooper, Firestones. He prefers Cooper's for performance with a decent price.
