Cooper STT Discoverer M/T vs Goodyear Wrangler MT/R Kevlar

Hey guys,
Ordering a set of 35s for my jeep, I'm wondering which is better of the 2. The Kevlars are about $40 more for a whole set than compared to the Coopers. Thanks a lot.

Better in which way? MTRs are friendlier, but STTs will buy you a drink if you ask. Neither would bail you out of jail, but both would be pretty good wingmen.

STTs will do better in mud and snow, MTRs on rocks and they'll have better tread life and run quieter/smoother on the street.

I am wrestling with the same decision.

My concern with the MT/Rs is mud performance. The reviews are inconclusive, either people say they're good or not good and pack up. But good in rocks.

STT seems to get good reviews for mud, okay for grip on rocks.

if i am not mistaken the STT are similar to the Pro Comp XMT extreme mud terrains. Pro comp and cooper supposed to be partners. good looking tires!!!!

i know this is an older thread, but im stuck between these tires right now.

but actually cooper just came out with a discover stt PRO version. i emailed and asked and they said it is replacing the STT. it looks completely different but im guessing its an upgrade if its replacing it?




i currently run cooper st maxx tires and was hoping to go a little more aggressive, which the stt's provide, but also the mtr's are more agressive

The cooper STT pro pattern has the same general pattern that a lot of other highly regarded tires have like the Falken MT and BFG KM2/3. The tread patterns are different but the shape and direction of the pattern is similar.

So just basing it off that one could assume it should be a good tire... but, not knowing the compound or having run them it's impossible to truly say.
