    Well I haven't ever driven them in snow being that I live in South Texas but I know that they wear really well and they do well in sand and in the mud. If you do lots of highway driving I would recommend them. Mine are 32x11.50.

    This is one of the tires I install for a living so I have a lot of experience with them. I have yet to see anyone come back with a problem with one i.e. a slipped belt or out of round. They are also built very well, tread wears real good and so on. The only downfalls are the sidewalls feel a little weak and the tread isnt real agressive. But they would be a perfect mostly on road and some off road tire. Dont expect them to be like a mud terrain 'cause they wont. But like I said they wear great and very evenly, unlike a lot of BFGs ive put on. I hope this helps.

    I've got a pair on my Blazer now... They are not very good for off-road, and are especially BAD in the mud...[​IMG] they got me stuck (lol, yea it was all the tires, NOT)... Really the tread does not clean at all...

    My Suburban had a set of 33X12.50s on it when I got it. They had some miles on them, but there was tread left. Two of them were severely out of round, and they were the noisiest SOBs I have ever heard, especially for an A/T. I replaced them with a set of BFG A/Ts, and it is like night and day. I would never buy a Cooper tire. Some people seem to swear by them, but I only swore at them.

    Tire research never ends on this site does it?

    I would love to find a set of tires for my daily driver that wear well and are easier on the old wallet.

    Not saying I want cheap tires, but my god, a set for under 400 bills would be nice. My other half just about shot me after I bought my truck and wanted to replace the tires.

    One of the other techs at our shop came from a shop that sold them and he had 4 on his Burb. They lived pretty long and didn't have many prob's, but he switched to Kelly AWR's and said was a big difference... better traction and cleaning in the snow and quieter. Generally hear you either swear by cooper or swear at them LOL... like was stated... Kinda like Firestone and Michlien... Love or Hate
