    I talked to Nebraska Tire (same company that has the CHEAP TIRE thread for $61.50 tires). They have Coopper Discoverer ST tires in 35x12.5x15 for $66.50 each. Shipping is up to $15/tire now. These tires retail here in Richmond VA for $159.99 ea. These tires are brand new with the blued on the sidewalls and the tits on the tread. I think this sounds awesome.

    I have 2 questions:

    Does anyone have experience with these Cooper Discoverer ST tires? I use my truck about 50/50 on and off road, it's a 1975 Blazer.

    What is your opinion of Nebraska Tire both good or bad? Are they honest people? Good to deal with?

    Thanks guys! /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I have never personally had Cooper tires but for what it's worth I haven't heard anything bad about them, generally only good things.
    I replied to this post because I live in Lincoln, NE and there are 2 Nebraska Tire stores here in town. I have only dealt with them a couple times but there are always pretty good guys to deal with and always e-mailed me back quickly with answers to my questions. I am looking to buy some tires from them as soon as I get my tax return $. I found that generally the South Lincoln store is better than the North Lincoln store. I don't know where the 800 number is answered, but if you want I can find the South Lincoln store's local # in the phone book.

    Are you talking abou the STT Mud tires from Cooper? If you are, I would shy away from them. My friend put them on his 95 Chevy (35's). They were loud, wore terrible, awful on compact snow, poor in mud... I guess generally just not what we had expected to see from Coopers. Now their A/T's are great and their snow tires rule.

    bahhhh i have the STT's on now and run the S/T's in winter. first off the STT is great in mud, and are even good in snow. i have 35"s and they arent that loud either, IMHO.
    now to the S/T, is also a great tire. i havent had a single problem with them. they dont clean as well as the STT but they do well in snow, sand, and mud. i would recommend them to you
    here is the S/T tread design

    Those tires are well worth $66 if that is what you are asking. Most people I know have had good luck with them and are good on and off road. I think the key with them are to keep them rotated with the correct air pressure, and they should be fine. My dad had a set on the back of a 2x4 that went 40K mile with alot of tread left when he sold the truck, and it went well in the mud.

    There ok, not great, kind of a lesser quality BFG Mud. I wasn't impressed with the sidewall strength though.

    I'm glad I posted information about Nebraska Tire. Makes me feel good that I've helped some people save a few bucks. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
