    http://coopertires.com/us/en/ProductDetails.asp?ProdType=LtTruck&id=190&title=Light+Truck+Tires

    they seem to be a good in between an at and a mt....kind of like the DC FCII's

    these coopershttp://coopertires.com/us/en/ProductDetails.asp?ProdType=LtTruck&id=271&title=Light+Truck+Tires are cool but dont come in a 33x12.5x15 size

    Well I don't know about these, but I had the STT's and man did they wear well. I had a ton of miles on them.

    my buddy runs those tires on his DD, it does good for what he uses it for. he has a muddy driveway when it rains and it pulls him through.

    if you want a better tire from cooper go with these, i run these on my truck and i like them alot. and if it wasn't for my local cooper dealer, they would be my next set.

    Those are the ones I had, and the new version has siping and a decent sidewall tread.

    yea i think the 2nd link i posted was of the new discoverer STT's they are very nice they remind me of the toyo mt's

    Its between http://www.mastercrafttires.com/us/...odType=LtTruck&id=183&title=Light+Truck+Tires those which are basically the old stt cept they have a cooler sidewall and coursers are still made by cooper too.

    Im gonna ask on a bfg mud price too.

    If i go mt im gonna need to have them sipe the tires for the snow, rain, ice, slush part

    part of me wants me to go with interco's truxs mt's

    Sometimes interco doesnt have good quality

    I just picked up the Trxus MT's. On road manners are exceptionally good for an MT and quiet. So good I'm a little nervous it might be at the expense of offroad handling. I haven't got to my fender trimming yet to take them offroad. As far as quality, until something goes wrong it's hard to determine, but just with general presentation of the tire, all the cuts were clean without any leftover rubber and what not from the molds. That's generally a good sign.
