    Another tire question.
    I need to buy some new tires for my K5 Blazer. I have stock suspension and 15 x 10 steel rims. Right now i`m running on BFG A/T 33x12.5x15 but they rub when fully turning or bumps. I now wouldt like to put 32x11.5x15 cooper STT or L/T under it. Wich one is the better tire i`m most off the time onroad lets say 60% and 40% offroad. Is the cooper tire a good choice?
    Here in the Netherlands i pay $135 for the cooper and $190 for the BFG A/T.

    I hope somebodey can give me a good advice.

    The cooper STT is an awesome choice in tire. I've heard that they're about to quit making them in favor of a new mud terrain pattern here in the states though. I sure wish my BFG Trail T/As would wear out so I could get a set. Although the Pro-Comp M/T is the same tire. I have a couple of friends that run the STTs and they clean much better than and BFG and work awesome both off road and on. You should get 40K miles out of a set. Ask TEX on the off-road.com board.

    I've got a set of the STT's in 33x12.50x15 and love them. I don't think you can beat Cooper's as far as a truck tire goes. Just keep them rotated and you'll be in great shape. They handle great on road but they do make a bit of road noise, but i like a little hum to go with my exhaust.
